The manual was very thorough, and the setup was a breeze. It has a ton of advertised features, I found the following VERY useful:

1. The battery replacement cover is on the front (you do not have to take out the whole unit or take screw out to replace batteries

2. The 1 touch backlight is very convenient to look things up at night

3. The ability to program the device off the wall while sitting down comfortably with the manual and pieces of paper is convenient

4. The one touch feature to tell the device that you home for the day wthout other intervention is convenient.

other than that, what can I say? it works!

'Tis the part of the year when temperatures here range between freezing and 85 degrees, sometimes during the same day. It was a continuous hassle, turning on the heat or turning on the A/C, trying to keep the kids from having pneumonia or the chinchillas passing away from the heat.

My son and I installed this thermostat in about 20 minutes. The directions are very comprehensive, and when it says read through them *before* installation, they are correct - RTFM!

As for the thermostat, it has performed well. We set a range for it to stay within, and it does that without any problem. Switches between A/C and heat as needed without our intervention. A great feature is the Home button, which allows you to move to the warmest (heat) or coolest (A/C) setting on days when you are home (or are just too darned cold). Otherwise, set it and forget it - no need for seasonal (or daily) adjustments.

I purchased the model 44459 4 years ago, which essentially is the same unit. My basis for the selection was the indiglo feature. This is one that most of the other similar priced units did not have.
To my suprise, I found the energy and filter monitoring features to be most usefull. The energy monitor allowed me to track my usage in both summer and winter, and to see how much the other upgrades to the house made a difference in energy savings. The front access to the battery is also usefull, although I changed the battery this year for the first time in 4 years.
Well, this morning, I found that my heat would not turn off, and the thermostat was stuck in the on position. I performed all normal troubleshooting procedures to no avail. I spoke directly with a Hunter Tech Support agent, who agreed with me, the unit went bad. She put me on hold for about 10 minutes, and when she returned, she informed me that my unit was no longer under warranty (which I knew, just wanted to get repaired). To my supprise, she offered a one-time courtesy replacement of the unit, NO CHARGE! All they ask is that I pay for return postage of the bad unit. She even offered to expedite the order, so that I would not be without heat for very long!
Now, I am not saying that they will extend this to everybody, but I was highly impressed with the way they stand behind their product. When I looked at the specs between my unit, and this one, which they are sending to me, they are exact! Even the owner's manual is the same!
I have been very pleased with the unit, and have grown to love the features. Home Today, Hold, and ease of programming features a plus. It even has a keypad lock function to keep the kids from messing with the temp settings.
Great value and features for the price. Highly reccomended!!!

We wanted to cut back on costs as well as use less energy, so we researched programmable thermostats and chose this one based on the good reviews. After installing the thermostat and using it for a few days, I can say that we are VERY pleased and that it lives up to the good reviews. It came with everything needed to install as well as very detailed instructions on installation and on using the many customization features. It's tedious to set all of your daily options - I mean, you have the option of setting four different programs a day! - but after it's set, it's very easy to just let it go and you only need to hit one or two buttons to override without changing your saved settings. It also doesn't reset your features if the batteries go dead, which is good to know.

I purchased this product following a recommendation from Consumer Reports and extensively reading consumer comments on Amazon. We are VERY pleased with the thermostat! My husband was a little bit anxious on whether he could replace the unit himself (decided to do it on a weekday so that back-up could be called if needed). He was surprised how easy it was to replace the unit.

We especially like the automatic change-over between heat and A/C. Since it's not uncommon in the fall to go from very chilly nights to very warm days, we were constantly shifting the thermostat back and forth. With this unit, you no longer have to do that. You simply set your heat temperature for wake-up, leave the house, return home, go to bed, and then do the same with your A/C temperature. The unit automatically engages the right unit at the right time -- it's amazing!

Also, the unit is very easy to program and does NOT make any noises when it turns on and off. This is an excellent choice -- you won't be disappointed!

UPDATE:
10/9/2013: Product Update - 6 years later and thermostats are still working perfectly. Batteries need replacement about once a year so that the lovely little light works when we adjust the thermostat. Have not had a single issue with them. Still a 5-Star product !!!
