At a Glance

If you're on a tight budget, Honeywell's programmable thermostat will pay for itself faster than either the Venstar T5800 or the much-talked-about Nest. But it lacks many of the features (some advanced, some relatively basic) that its competitors deliver.

Price when rated: $149

Pros

  • Everything you need in one box
  • "Smart Response" technology
  • Moderate price tag

Cons

  • Primitive, ugly black-on-green touchscreen
  • No email reminders about preventative maintenance
  • No usage or energy-consumption reporting
