Found 10th Oct
I saw the other one on here a couple days ago and wasn't too enthused by it. Read some reviews and this one seems pretty well received. And it's cheap from China!

Description:

Equipped with professional grade sensors, the ThermoPro TP-55 provides most accurate measurements, be it for humidity or temperature, allowing you to be aware if adjustments are necessary for your household. The TP55 is not just highly accurate but extremely user friendly with a backlight for those nighttime last minute checks on current readings before bed. That’s not all, no longer will it be necessary to unmount the device off your wall or fridge to switch settings, simply use the touchscreen display. Furthermore, it provides an abundance of valuable information, such as displaying 24 hour/all-time high/low records and current trends for both humidity and temperature and humidity level icons that indicate if your home is too humid, too dry or just right!

Product Features:

  • 4” large display for easy usability, includes optional backlight and simple touchscreen
  • Professional accuracy 2-3%RH and ±1°F/°C to provide the most reliable readings possible
  • Wide temperature range from -58°F to 158°F (-50°C ~ 70°C), humidity range from 10% to 99% RH
  • Measures humidity and temperature conditions every 10 seconds, so you can regulate your household for maximum comfort
  • Displays temperature and humidity trends, giving you the chance to preset your humidifier and thermostat to react the current trend
  • Measures current readings and compares to daily/all-time records, so if you thought it was too hot for a sweater yesterday, you can adjust your outfit appropriately
  • Humidity level icons to indicate if your home has low, comfortable or high humidity
  • Both Fahrenheit degree and Celsius degree are available at the press of a button
  • Low battery indicator
  • Designed with a table stand, mountable backing and a magnetic backing for optimal placement around your household

This thermometer has no advantage to being fake, for example



It's not just a case of being "fake".

1. Order this product
2. Wait several weeks
3. Receive product
4. Display is faulty / battery compartment is corroded (yes, a real occurrence)
5. Report item faulty
6. Seller says he'll refund £3 and you keep faulty item
7. You raise a dispute
8. AliExpress advise to return item recorded overseas delivery. This will cost you over £6
9. You express dismay and ask seller for return costs
10. Seller says you are liable for return costs
10. AliExpress closes your dispute with no right to appeal.

That's my experience.

Cheap from China? I simply refuse to believe that, all the quality testing they do and high quality components they use.

My recent experiences with AliExpress sellers mean I shall vote cold.

They consistently ship fake/counterfeit products and your only recourse is to accept a partial refund or ship back {recorded} at your expense.

What did you purchase?


3 pen drives from 3 sellers - all fake.

Thing is, you get 7 days to return it {at your expense} otherwise your dispute is closed. It costs around £6 to return to China via recorded post.

Have you purchased anything else apart from pen drives off AliExpress?

Several electronic gadgets since 2011. Each and every one was either DOA or failed within 1 day.

I guess it depends on the seller. A phone I got was ok. A battery was fake.

I’m sorry but pen/flashdrives is the one thing I would never ever order from China, it’s such a widely faked product and there are so many good value UK suppliers for fractionally more can’t even see why you would risk it? Data storage is somewhere you don’t want to cut corners. What pen drives and what price can I ask?

I totally get why people order good-spec phones from there (they’re so much cheaper the risk is acceptable) or small products like tools, toys, etc. This thermometer has no advantage to being fake, for example

Yes ok, I do agree with that argument but I do kind of feel you bought it upon yourself with cheap flash drives. For something like a thermometer it’s a reasonable risk. And if you really had 6 years of all broken items why did you continue to order?!

With Banggood and PayPal (I don’t think AliExpress take PayPal for that reason)the odd few bad experiences I’ve had haven’t lasted long and I’ve never been out of pocket. And not that I should condone it but if it’s faulty, sometimes it’s just easier to report it as ‘item not received’.

Under UK law surely the seller has to collect or refund postage for returning items..
these items are sold in the uk..
These arent fake items .. ie they are not trying to pretend to be anything else eg duracell, sony.
i have bought items from China nd so far so good max £150 value...
altho I think perhaps customs will catch on soon to the increasing flow and start querying values/fees/dutys? or is that only for higher value/illegal stuffs

I don't think they are covered by UK law as the sovereignty of these companies is in China or HK. Even if it was, are you going to sue an international company? It's hard enough getting UK rip-off companies to pay out.

Thanks, was just about to place a big order from Aliexpress, might as well add this to order for the office.

Also I've never had a problem with anything from Aliexpress, a seller even resent a £50 item just from a video of it being broke 1 months after i got it

Can't beat Banggood.
Even Chinese sellers on ebay will resend.

Exactly, something sounds off there.

No problem here with Aliexpress, Banggood or eBay's FE sellers, but will never use Gearbest again after one bad experience.

that's not bad for the price, i got a hygrometer from amazon for the about the same price but far simpler (just temp and humidity) but that's all i needed bar the outdoor temp to do my recordings.
I got condensation issues, that's after having the windows changed and new bigger sized radiators installed, informed my social housing association and they asked me to record data, which i did and on that evidence we had a condensation / mould surveyor out today to suss out the problem.
I posted a thread here forums.moneysavingexpert.com/sho…162 for advice when i first started recording the data, and likely solution looks to be the installation of a piv unit.
We'll wait and see what the contractor comes back with though.
