At a Glance

Honeywell's model RTH9580WF Smart Wi-Fi thermostat is one of the better programmable models we've tested. But its plastic construction just isn't as pretty as the stainless-steel-and-glass Nest.

Price when rated: $249

Pros

  • Bright, responsive touchscreen
  • Easy to program, either via the touchscreen or an online session
  • Adapts to your daily living patterns

Cons

  • Overly busy-looking display
  • All-plastic enclosure
  • Not all of the thermostat's features available via Honeywell's Web portal
