Not happy – Indoor/Outdoor Digital Humidity/Temperature with Clock (1 x AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
It works. Working now for longer than probe thermo I got at same time. I guess that is something ;)
Cons:
Way off target as far as accuracy. In vs Out is off by 0.5-1 degC.
However the real issue is its out of whack by more than 1 DegC overall.
This is compared to 3 other digi thermos that all read within a few decimals of each other.
Other:
Not a bad set of features. Min max is always good. Min/max alarm is a great feature. No humidity as already mentioned.
Bottomline:
Would be 1/2 decent if it was ballpark accurate. Unfortunately it is too inaccurate to be of much use at all unless you have an accurate reference to account for its variance.
I noticed another user grabbed 3 of these & they all read within a few points of each other. I can only assume from this they are all calibrated to an innacurate baseline.
