Horstmann HRT3 Mechanical Room Thermostat
Lasted approx. two weeks. As another reviewer said would only come on at 25+ then not at all ! You get what you pay for I suppose.

Not very good
As other reviewers have said, it's not very accurate - I had to set the temperature nearly 10 degrees above what was actually required and even then it still operated sporadically.
I'm suspicious that the little orange neon lamp they've used (to indicate Call for Heat) actually generates enough ambient heat inside the thermostat case to affect the temperature and trip the thermostat off too early.
It may be cheaper, but you get what you pay for.

Needs to be set 6-7 degrees above desired temperature. Touching the control knob switches the heating on. All in all, I sadly cannot recommend this unit at all and will replace with a superior unit.

Once you get used to setting the required temperature 6 or 7 degrees higher than you require the thermostat works O.K.
I returned the first one thinking it was faulty but the replacement was exactly the same.
At least they are consistent!
