Vague, at best. Inaccurate, at worst.
on 30 July 2013
I bought the Energy Saving Eco Room Thermometer at the same time as another product, which I'll mention below, to compare.
The Energy Saving Eco Room Thermometer was less than £2.45, so I had my doubts, but thought I'd give it a try. Since it arrived, I think it has only shown, either, 27 or 24. That's it. Granted it's been a warm couple of weeks, but my other thermometer has shown a range of temperatures, from 20.5℃ to 35℃. This one, however, does not appear to go above 27℃, or below 8℃.
If you're looking for a *very* vague guide to the *approximate* temperature, then this might be for you. However, in my view, the best thing it has going for it is that it provides a written guideline of what level of comfort should be expected from certain temperatures.
My advice is to print those and put them next to the other thermometer I bought, for only £2 more, which has an LCD display, to a tenth of degree, very accurate readings and even a high/low temperature memory. I'm in no way affiliated with with the DURAGADGET Indoor LCD Room Temperature Thermometer/Gauge With Stand And Digital Display. I just think it's a far better purchase.
