    Pros:

    It works

    It's cheap

    Temperature and humidity readings are reasonably stable and precise.

    Cons:

    Sensor is inaccurate, you need to calibrate it in your code.

    Slow to respond to changes in environment.

    Small range of sensitivity 0-50c (32-122F).

    Not well protected.

    Those last two means, probably indoor use only.

    OtherThoughts:

    To calibrate these, I'm afraid you're going to have to use
    .
    .
    .
    math.

    Bottomline:

    Temperature sensor for indoor use, that requires you do a little bit of thinking, measuring and testing if you want accurate readings.
