You will be sorry you asked !!!

I purchased one Taylor unit and found it lacking in calibration as the base sensor and remote sensor disagreed with each other by 4%. The actual humidity readings were off by 20% from my previous in-house standards. It was hard to read, numbers were too close in brightness to the background scale.
I sent this one back and you nicely sent me another unit. (The person I corresponded with via e-mails was extremely courteous and helpful.) The second one was just as bad. Back it went.
I purchased another Taylor unit, an upgrade (more money) than the unit above. This set had the same problems as the two above AND some of the number segments did not function on the base station. Back it went also.
I have communicated with the Taylor manufacturer and they are slow to respond (by many many days) and also their responses are not on point and ineffectual.
I later purchased a La Crosse Technology set from Amazon and it performed quite well, base sensor and remote sensor agreed with each other (within 1/2%). Data screen was MUCH easier to read (contrast was wonderful). The humidity sensors (both base and remote) stabilized much more quickly than any of the above Taylor instruments.
After this, I went to the La Crosse website and purchased an upgrade the the immediate above. It also is working GREAT and I am currently using both sets.
If you want my recommendation, I would dump the Taylor instrument group and settle on La Crosse Technology.
I write this on my basis as a Senior Quality Assurance Engineer for a major computer company (at least it WAS) and my current position as the owner of a small business selling industrial static control products. You may check out my bona fides at [...] .
I DO appreciate the manner in which you treat your on-line customer.
