Not a fan of these at all, cheep tat. But it's much better than not having one at all.

Can you elaborate please. We've fitted these for customers in the past, never had any real complaints, except for old people who can't change batteries. They do what they're designed to do.

I already have one of these and hardly touch it. Very good wireless stat. However tempted to get 2nd gen nest at some point.

IMO they look like they were bought at pound land.
I've had a few fail.
And annoyingly they occasionally don't show a low battery sign but the relay just doesn't move.
They're the thermostat (if there's one at all) you see on pretty much every crap install.

But they are very cheap and if you don't have one and you're on a budget then like I say, better than none at all.

​Totally agree. Got this, and works perfectly. Couldn't be simpler.

I've had this for a couple of years. no issues whatsoever.

You're talking rubbish mate. How can you relate a product to the quality of the install. The quality of the install is down to the quality of the installer. The cost of products fitted are down to the customers budget, and willingness to spend. Fitting expensive products doesn't make you a good installer.

But you can get the programmable version for £28 at B&Q I believe.

ive installed plenty of these. no problems. the programmable ones rt500 some have had issues with. but the basic stat above is fine.

You've picked up on one observation and just ignore the rest of what I said. But I stand by it. If you're paying over a grand for a new boiler then an extra £30 for a better stat is within anyone's budget.

They're ugly to look at IMO feel cheep and like I said before I've had quite a few go. So the quality isn't great.
But I am not knocking it's a good price for what is a cheep stat.
