Good RF Thermostat
Bought to replace faulty unit. Installed and working in minutes.

I have several of these in service in various places, the youngest is at least 6 years old, and have not had any trouble with any of them. One is on the top floor of a 3 storey townhouse, communicating with a receiver in the basement, and it does this with no trouble until the batteries are all but dead.
The only downside is that they are not the easiest to program, compared to eg any of the recent Honeywell controllers / roomstats which are absolute childsplay to set-up & use. Honeywell's quality of late has not been as good as of old, though, so if you are a fit & forget customer I expect that you'll be very happy with the +3RF.
I've given it 4 stars for feqatures, which is possibly a bit unfair as it has everything that you could wish for, but I wanted to mark it down slightly for ease of use, and "Features" seemed the nearest rating to reduce.

Easy to fit, keen price from Screwfix, good stocks available, unit also comes pre programed - even the time & date were correct...

product works for 1 season
The thermostat worked fine - a brilliant product. I have 5 of them installed in different houses.
After 10 months the first does not work any more, the relay who should switch on the boiler does not work any more. disappointing - it should last a least 5 years
