It looks like most of the negative reviews were from units that failed.. some up to 2 years after purchase. I'm not saying it should be ignored, but most people don't use the rate feature unless they come back with a problem. It looks like it has very good HVAC support and the large touch screen is very nice. Units like this cost twice as much or more, and it is VERY hard to find a thermostat under $25 that supports heat pumps.
That said, sometimes simple is best for older people and going with a non touch screen and non programmable thermostat is more ideal.
