Drayton MiStat MP710R9K09SX Wireless Programmable Thermostat and Receiver
Just replaced a 7 year old Sunvic wireless programmable stat with the P710. I was a bit dubious after reading the other negative reviews on this unit, but so far it has worked as it should. It brings the heating on at the set time (or a bit earlier with optimum start) and switches off when the set temperature is reached. Programming is a doddle, and the displayed temperature matches that of a calibrated digital thermometer I compared it to. It also communicates with the receiver when placed in any room of the house.
I guess there may have been some faulty units out on the market, but luckily I seem to have a good one!

poor wireless range
Its claimed to have a straight line range of 200m, but the one I installed wouldn't do 4m through 2 walls and a floor. We've ended up having to move it to a point 2m away directly above the receiver but on the floor above.

Do Not Buy This Product.
Having fitted this product for a client, I was some what displeased to be called back in less than 24hrs due to the temperature sensor constantly reading 27 degrees, Despite the fact my clients were shivering!
Thank you Drayton for wasting my time, increasing my fuel costs and inconveniencing my customers.
I only fit Honeywell controls now and I've had no complaints to date.

Drayton room stat
I swapped this for a Honeywell CMT921 as I found it easier to program than the Drayton Although there are restrictions with programming compared to the Drayton and I found the Wireless connection to be more reliable if I turned the power off and back on the Drayton needed to re-paired sometimes which is no good if you are away from home after a power cut.
