    This thermostat is packed with features, and we dig being able to display our favorite digital photos on its seven-inch screen. But it's almost as expensive as the far-superior Nest when you add the Wi-Fi module that makes it worth buying.

    Pros

    • Displays digital photos on its seven-inch LCD
    • Terrific feature set
    • Great web portal

    Cons

    • Ugly, additional-cost Wi-Fi dongle
    • Can't upload photos over your network
    • DIP switches!
