I did some research and was about to buy another Car***r brand touchscreen, but there were several concerned reviews, most notably regarding the lack of 'deadband' programming control (more on that below in this review) which led me to have second thoughts.

I studied many brands, and determined the Venstar 5800 was the way to go. Using their downloaded manuals and software I was able to learn how to operate & program this thermostat, save the settings and schedule (as well as screensaver images) to an SD Card before the arrival of my thermostat in the mail. It came within 3 days, which is faster than the 7 days estimated when ordering.

Touchscreen thermostats need a 'common' lead from the furnace/air handler unit transformer, to power the device, which I knew ahead of time. I also purchased 50 ft of Southwire 5-lead wire from Amazon. After turning off the furnace & AC power at the breaker panel, I ran the new lead wire from the attic unit, matching the colors. Using my existing 4 lead wire, I was able to pull the newly installed 5 lead wire down the wall from the attic. (If you cannot run new 5 lead wire, there is a Venstar Add-A-Wire 5 wire to 4 wire adapter sold separately - only recommend the technical savvy individuals should install).

After a 5 minute swap of the old and new thermostat, by the time i returned from turning the breaker back on the thermostat was illuminated and ready in the OFF mode. I inserted the SD card, went to the "Menu>(page down)> Settings> SD card > Import settings from SD card" and selected all items. It recognized that a newer firmware was used to create the SD card program, and I had to accept to install new firmware before it would load the schedule and settings.

I am an owner of the T5800 and while I'm not a HVAC contractor - I work in a related business. I'm writing this review mainly to refute some of the things stated by the previous reviewer. . . .

The main thing I must say is - if you don't know what you are doing - hire a professional. I've always said "the devil is in the details" and while it may be a breeze to replace a thermostat (all you need is a small screwdriver) there is always a possibility that some little things may (or may not) get in the way of a successful installation.

This thermostat requires a constant supply of 24 volt power, and you must have a wire called a "common" coming from your system transformer and running to the "C" terminal on the thermostat. This "C" wire along with the "R" wire provide the power and they shouldn't be touched together or jumpered together unless you are interested in sparks, flames, or melted plastic. If you are running a furnace and an air conditioner - and you have 4 wires coming to your thermostat (the most common scenario) - you will NOT be able to use the T5800 out-of-the-box. This doesn't mean it's game over. There is a product called "Add-A-Wire" that you can purchase very inexpensively that will allow you to duplex 2 functions on 1 wire and then use the free wire you created as your common. You could also run another wire.

For the reviewer to say that you can just jumper things together is akin to saying you can put a paperclip in an electrical outlet and everything would be fine. Specifically, jumpering "R" and "C" together would most certainly fry your transformer. The fact is - a thermostat installation might not be a DIY project. If you aren't sure of what you are doing, pay the money to hire a professional, or do a little more research.

It is a very neat thermostat with some draw backs. It works great, is very easy to set up, and looks good on the wall. The screen is a little smaller than I thought, which is on me for not researching better, and is a little on the low res side of things. Also, in the six months I have had it, it's screen froze up and wouldn't accept new commands. The programming continued on however. I pulled the face plate off and reinstalled it and all work great. It has some big bonuses, including being recomended #1 by CR. Its easy to set up, and works as promised. The screen is disappointing though.

This thermostat as worked really well so far.

Installation: easy as any other. The booklet gives you an idea of what your wiring would look like for different heating and cooling systems. My previous thermostat did not have a constant power but the wire was available. I simply wrote down which color was what from my furnace/AC panel (R,Y,W1,G) I connected the spare wire to constant "C" and then plugged the wires into their matching markers on the unit.

Screen: The image is bright and the touch screen works well. The customization options for information display let me choose what I want to see between a few options. There are also evening dimming option though the lowest setting for night still casts a lot of light when the room is full dark. I think there is a black out option, but I can't remember.

Wireless Access: This is a great feature. It does require a wireless dongle that goes into the SD card slot and you have to update the firmware of the unit before you can use the feature. But updating the firmware is a piece of cake. Once connected you create an account online, you can change settings from the computer and/or download the app for your phone. You can view the current settings and change them or bump the temp up or down with out having to touch the unit. So you can adjust the temp from work or on the way home, from bed, or from the couch because I am just that lazy at times. You can even send messages to be displayed on the screen of the unit, which my wife finds creepy, mostly because I keep sending messages like "Dave...What are you doing Dave?" (Look it up kids.)

Picture feature: The best non primary function feature this thing has.
