Rated 3 out of 5 by Bob B from This is so hard to program and reset. I have now had this thermostat for over a year and have found it to be extremely poorly designed for programming. Every time the power goes off or there's a time change, I need to get on my stomach, pull out a flashlight, a magnifying glass and the instructions to set the time or reprogram it. Not only is it nearly impossible to see what mode it's in or the day of the week - especially if you have any vision issues (like being over 50!) but it's overly complicated to get into the correct mode and follow the instructions. If you're not careful (and even if you ARE careful), you get into what seems like an endless cycle of going through days and time periods just to set the clock! The lack of a backlight aggravates the problem of deciphering the tiny indicators. And I am usually very, very good at following instructions and programming. Given the significant advances in programming interfaces, this is unacceptable. What about coming up with a wi-fi or blue tooth version that at least lets you program it on your phone or perhaps a remote controller that you can mount on the wall at eye level.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robert2 from Nope yes, exactly what another said so eloquently, "If you don't mind getting down on the floor and working your way through a series of fussy, concentration-challenging button-input steps to program it, using a densely laid-out instruction sheet full of small print and tiny illustrations, this thermostat will probably suit you fine. ... is just too hard to use, and having to crouch down by your baseboard to program it and read the display is an ergonomic nightmare. I would, however, accept a refund." yes, me too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gruen from difficult to set and unreliable Bought this one a year ago and even set at the manual setting still can't get it to work right! shuts it self of from time to time. Auto settings are almost impossible to follow! just gave up! Hope the manual one works better I'm done with this one! And at $54.00 its a rip off!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ProjectPioneer from Difficult interface; unreliable If you don't mind getting down on the floor and working your way through a series of fussy, concentration-challenging button-input steps to program it, using a densely laid-out instruction sheet full of small print and tiny illustrations, this thermostat will probably suit you fine. Of course, after the warranty expired my thermostat simply died. The display stayed on, but it stopped turning the heater on any more. I even replaced the relay on the circuit board with the same kind, but it still wouldn't work, so I switched to the Cadet analog baseboard thermostat, which wastes energy by not being programmable, but at least works reliably. Truthfully, even if it wasn't out of warranty and I could get a replacement, I probably wouldn't--the interface is just too hard to use, and having to crouch down by your baseboard to program it and read the display is an ergonomic nightmare. I would, however, accept a refund. This is 1990 technology, at most.
