    Please list your favorites and why! I will start with the brinsea spot check thermometer, love it![​IMG], Easy to use and extremely accurate! I am still searching for the best hygrometer![​IMG]

    [​IMG] I use a simple meat thermometer thru the top of my LG and no longer monitor humidity - just continue to do what worked for me in the past. [​IMG]

    I, too, love the Brinsea SpotCheck thermometer. I use the Flukers hygrometers, little round things I bought in the reptile dept. Of PetSmart, as a GUIDE, but not to totally freak me out. [​IMG]

    This thread is old but wondered if I post this if anyone will reply with what is the cheapest and best thermometer or thermometer/hygrometer they have found?
