Nest 2nd Gen review,
This review is from: Nest T200577 2nd Generation Learning Thermostat (Electronics)
Picked mine up from the store today.
***DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE FILM FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE UNIT*** I am one of those remove plastic wrap from everything kind of guys. Guess what, that isn't plastic wrap on the entire bottom of the Nest ring itself. It's the sensors. Don't scuff up your Nest!
It took longer to unbox it then it did for me to install it. It helps that I only had 2 wires, red & white to connect. Connected to my Wifi easily. It then downloaded a software/hardware update 3.01. After that it was pretty painless.
Looks great on the wall. If you think the stainless ring reflects the color of your wall like they say it does, then you are willing it to happen.
I never had the Nest 1 to compare it to but this one is very sharp looking. Everything in the box was well packaged.
Mainly got this unit for the fuel savings and the fact that it does not need a "C" wire to work like every other fancy thermostat.
Android app works perfectly over 4G or Wifi. Running ICS on a Droid Razr.
Unit does have an Anti-Freeze temp setting since someone asked.

What store did you buy it from? I have been looking it! Thanks.

I pre-ordered mine through Amazon.com tax-free. It should be arriving in the mail today. If you go to nest.com, you'll see what all local retailers carry it. I know Lowes does for certain.

Yes, I got it from Lowes. Used my 10% off coupon so it was a better deal than Amazon, which is rare =)

thanks for the info. Where did you get the Lowes coupon? I have Lowes holding one for me until I can get to the store (Saturday).

If you get a change of address packet from the USPS, there is a 10% off lowe's coupon in there. I use it with success at Home Depot as well!

Does this little guy have extra temperature sensors that you can place in other rooms?

Thanks Nicole, I guess I will pop over to USPS and pick one up.

No but if you get another Nest, they can talk to each other.

Don't forget you may pay sales tax at Lowes. For me, this would be about $5 savings to buy from Lowes with the 10% off coupon, but then I would have to pay for gas. Having Amazon deliver it to my door seems so much easier.

Buying online using a cashback site usually negates the cost of sales tax =)
