Before I bought this product, I was kind of hesitant because of the not so good reviews but I decided to go ahead and give it a try.
After trying it, I am more inclined to think that most of the negative reviews are because the reviewers did not know how to operate the device.
For example, some complained about the temprature override requiring you to set an ending time. In fact the unit allows you to set either a temprary hold until a certain time, or a permanant hold which will take effect indefinately or a vacation hold. Yes, it will require an extra click but it is a useful feature which is better than forgetting your system on and leaving.

You also do have control over the fan. Some other reviewer complained that the fan would go on and off during the night. When you program the time periods, you do have control over the fan mode. You can set it to on, auto (which turns on only when the compressor is running) and refresh which is the same as auto but also turns the fan on if the system is idle for more than an hour to keep the air fresh.

Some complained about the fan turning on without the compressor.. Sounds to me like the recircuilation mode. This mode runs only if the system is idle for an hour and it lets the fan run for 10 , 15 or 20 minutes to bring fresh air. This was quite helpful when I set my temprature to 85 and the air used to be not so fresh by the time I got home because the ac never had to work. With this feature the air is fresh again by the time I got home. I believe this saves more energy than if i kept the temprature at 80 just to maintain freshness.

On the negative side, installation did not go as smooth for me.

There are enough reviews here so normally it wouldn't be necessary another one.
However I don't think the reviews are doing it justice because people can not figure out how it works.
It is true that the manual is very confusing and bad leaving out whole major matters all together.
Here is how I see it:
I have a simple system with two units of A/C & Heating (gas), one upstairs, the other downstairs.

It was not more complicated than I thought it should be and if you follow the instructions it should work.
It comes even with labels for the old wires.
If you are not electrically inclined, or don't easily follow written instructions, I would recommend calling a specialist.
-Negative: the provided labels are not that good and some came off while mingling with the wires.

This is the main complain I see from people, as they don't seem to understand the manual if they read it.
If anything needs a manual, usually it means that that machine is not intuitive enough, and this thermostat needs a manual, and a BETTER one that is.
Here are some things I learned:

- The manual is indeed confusing, BUT it will point you in the right direction, and once you start messing with the unit you should figure out how it works. However there are some things that are not covered at all in the manual, so that is a problem.

- The back-light does not stay on, and that is I think the most negative issue I found with the unit. It should allow you to change it in system settings to stay on longer (30 sec?) or permanent. As some other reviewers noticed, it stays on only a few seconds.
What I do like, is that the back light is blue when the system cools and becomes red when the heat is running.

While the product itself is nice, the installation was less so. I had the hardest time getting this thermostat to turn my heat on. My heat would only come on if I plugged the white wire into the W2 slot.

After a few long and fruitless calls to customer support, I started scouring the internet, and found that this was a common problem. The solution to my woes, though, was to be found here on Amazon: As one other reviewer below mentioned, the proper W1 terminal is on the right hand side of the base, not the left - where the manual indicates it to be (and where there's an unlabeled terminal above the W2 termina).

So yeah. W1 is on the right.

I bought two of these over a year ago. Its been a disaster. I exchanged both units three times (for a grand total of six new thermostats) and all do the same thing eventually:

I have an electric heat pump. I set its programming for an electric heat pump (under Menu->System). Everything's will go well for awhile, but then it will MAGICALLY RESET ITSELF TO "CONVENTIONAL GAS&OIL". The result is it runs the emergency heating coils all the time, which increases my electric bill from $100 to $200 or more. The only way I know is if my bill is sky high, or as I've learned, to check it every so often.

I've changed the batteries, checked the wiring at the device and the furnace, read the nearly worthless manual cover-to-cover, and called tech support. No help anywhere. I paid $90 each for these at Lowes and now I'm out $180 for the thermostats and around $300 in additional heating bills.

If anybody has any clue to why they do this I'd be thrilled to hear it. Otherwise AVOID THESE THINGS LIKE THE PLAGUE.
