"Needed a maxi-min thermometer to check room where dog slept. Checked accuracy against two other quality thermometers and seemed consistent. Recorded maximum and minimum temperatures and it did the job required. Humidity reading a bonus as did not need the feature, also clock is another handy feature. As only used a couple of days put 3 stars for reliability but no reason that it should not be 5."
"What a pleasant surprise. This small box answers all that is described. The functions are several, and they do their job. Only 3 stars for reliability because I only bought it a few weeks ago, and it is too soon to give an honest response."
"I have become interested in growing orchids. Many specimens require a minimum temperature of 50 Deg. F for a month or so. Whilst this instrument does not alarm, at least I know that where I put them I have some idea of their overnight temperature. I have no real control over the humidity but it is good to know what it is. I purchased two instruments and they agree reasonably well. I gave four stars only for reliability because I have had them for only a week. The battery is AAA not AA, there is a slot for a spare battery, not one missing. The instructions were OK for a 12 year old, more dificult for 74, but I won in the end"
"I purchased this hygrometer mainly because I was having a problem with dampness caused by tenants living style; I have tested this in various buildings and friends’ houses before installing it with my tenants I have found it very accurate and easy to use, the instructions are simple and as informative as they need to be, the only calibration needed is to leave it in an area till it reach about 39 - 45% then take out the battery and put it back. I have been using it only for about a week and think it’s a great tool and great value for the price."
"I bought the meter to compare the readings of humidity with the performance of the dehumidifier which I had bought a couple of weeks before. Very interesting results. I'm now becoming obsessed with watching humidity changes. Excellent toy if nothing else."
"Purchased the item purely for the hygrometer function......does not work as advertised, even tested it using the recognised hygrometer salt test it just gives seemingly random humidity readings so returned for refund they talked me into a replacement so I gave it a try and repeated the test again, exactly the same but with different random number range.
so if you want it for the clock or thermometer it will be fine if you are looking for a hygrometer forget it"
"Purchased this product for the Humidity meter but thought I would test the accuracy of the thermometer first. Compared against two other thermometer which have a 0.3 degree deviation, the new unit was 16 deg out, so not worth trusting the Hygrometer as I needed it in greenhouse to grow orchids."
"extension and porch feels damp so bought 4 of these, sat together in same room to check before placing in different rooms, readings are 58% 50% 40% 36%, none read the same. when they go below 30% they don't come back untill the battery is removed and then have to reset the time, have to buy something more professional"
"I bought this mainly to measure humidity but found hygrometer to read -10 degrees when calibrated using standard salt solution method. The hygrometer operating instructions are also very poor. I'm dissapointed with this product, which is not up to Screwfix's usual high standard. I'm going to return it for a refund."
