Good quality thermostat
Bought to replace an identical ~15 year old model that was accidentally destroyed when using a wallpaper steamer to remove Artex, which did require steam to be applied for a relatively long time to soften it. .
This model uses a bellows filled with a liquid for its temperature sensor. Steam entered the inside, overheating the bellows and making it expand so much that it buckled and distorted irreversibly, putting the thermostat in the permanently OFF state. No fault of the thermostat, otherwise I would not have bought an identical replacement, just a word of warning to remove it if you use a steamer nearby.

Keep it simple
I got this to replace a digital thermostat with too many features. And that one replaced an ancient Honeywell one so I thought go for that and keep it simple this time. The price is high but it feels like a quality product and the reviews here have been good. The LED is very useful and the temperature markings seem to be accurate so far. Now the whole family (yes, I mean you Miranda) can tell if the heating is on. The very ancient Honeywell used 3 wires but I'm only using 2 with this one and it's working fine. Time will really tell if it is reliable but 5 stars for now. Features gets 5 stars as well because it has so few.

Good quality item
You get what you pay for. My last Honeywell thermostat was going strong after 20 years and was replaced by a cheap Drayton unit after an "electrician" damaged it. The Drayton was unreliable and eventually packed up after a couple of years. I decided to fork out the extra money and replace it with a quality Honeywell unit. The LED is very useful as you don't have to listen to the click to know you have turned it up and made it call for heat from the boiler.
