          A little on the small side. It appears to be durable enough. I just wish I could have gotten a version that was about 20% bigger. Not bad for the money but only time will tell. I would like to buy one that I would know is going to be on my house long after I am dead and gone. I don't think this is going to be the case with this unit. But it is by no means Junk but it could be better.
          Pros: Durable

          I used it for a two stage gas furnace with single stage cooling. The only draw backs are the screen could be bigger. I have a variable speed blower fan and there is no provision for circulate vs on at regular speed. When you temp hold it will only hold that temperature until the next time period i.e. morning day evening etc. There is no provision to temp or permeate hold for a number of hours or days. The instructions could be better. Has two AA batteries that need to be changed annually.
          On the plus side it is very easy to program and intuitive. It allows you to adjust the swing and offset values, really important feature. Swing is the difference from the room temp to where the unit will Read More

          On the plus side it is very easy to program and intuitive. It allows you to adjust the swing and offset values, really important feature. Swing is the difference from the room temp to where the unit will cycle on and off. a swing value of 1 if set at 70 will if in heat will start the unit when the temp drops to 69. Offset value in a two stage heat system (high and low burn rates) is where the second stage kicks in. So if the room temp is set for seventy and you have a 2 degree offset the second stage wont kick in until there is a two degree difference. Overall it is an excellent unit for the Money! Read Less
          Pros: Lots of Features, Easy to Use, Easy to Install
          Cons: fair instruction

          I have a Monessan natural gas, vent free fireplace and I need to get a thermostat for it. It says that it's universal and will work on all systems, but does that include the fireplace that I want to hook it up to?

          Answer: 
          In theory yes. Really a lot more thermostat than what you need. If you treat it as a single stage heat only and keep the batteries fresh. This unit does not need an outside power source to operate. please refer to the manual and wiring diagram #2 bearing in mind that you will not have a 24volt power supply wire. http://www.luxproducts.com/support/TX9600TSa_ENG_WebManual1.pdf

          Is this easy to program?

          We are replacing a programmable thermostat that works fine but is difficult to program.
          The one we have now had tiny indicators as well as a lengthy process for setting the schedule.
          I don't want to repeat the same error when I buy a new one. Since this is online only, I can't see the actual item until I purchase it.
          Thanks for any help you can give me.
