    posted by PetrStk on 02/11/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    It's a plug&play thing. Small, relatively cheap, very simple to use. Well built. The temperature reported is very precise, down to hundredths of degrees Celsius (like 24.48C).
    Cons:
    The reported temperature has an offset by 3-4 degrees so you need to calibrate it first with another thermometer. Interestingly...

    posted by sanderj on 07/22/2012 Certified Owner

    Pros:
    Solid housing, OK price, works under Linux lsusb ID is: "Bus 002 Device 025: ID 0c45:7401 Microdia". I use it with the file pcsensor.c under Ubuntu Linux, and that works.
