I hate mine. Its always 1 degree higher, it will be at 79.9 and than jump down 79.0 or maybe its just fudged. I always keep my mercury thermometer on handy with water changes etc.

 

P.S. I gave mine a SW dip once =P

^Same here! When I opened the shipping box there were two sitting right next to each other and they both read different temps. I was like WTF? Trashcan.

Hey,

they're not that bad. Mine works fine!

 

It tells me when my tank is too hot or too cold even without giving an accurate reading.

I like mine. Matches the mercury one I put in from time to time just to make sure. Who knows, maybe they're both wrong. :o My brother-in-law has the same one and likes it too.

For 6.99 it tells if your temp is going up and down more than a degree or two in 24hrs and that is more important than the exact temp. I have 2 tanks and they both have these. Not bad for the price

I like mine. I've got a Little Fishes on my 46g, and after 2 years, it reads 7° off. It's going in the trash. The LFS, where I bought the Coralife, put 5 of them in the same tank. They were all within 1° of each other.

Agreed x2.

 

If it reads 89 and your temp is actually 88 does it really matter? You still have a problem.

make it a tripple ^^^^ exact temp realy doenst matter from what ive seen. Mine is steady and if i were to do a waterchange and the water was slightly cooler it tells me that good enough and cheep, and easier to see from across the room
