    From what I've read, these units do not have a temp. hold function or swing programmability. Those would be serious liabilities for me.

    Agreed, $100 is my price point.

    Well, my average monthly natural gas bill over the last 12 months was
    $106.8133. The months of Nov. Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr average $142.51 while
    the other 6 months average 71.1167. Since I use NatGas for cooking, water
    heater, clothes dryer, I think it is fair to say the home heating usage is
    142.51-71.1167= $71.39333/mo. for 6 months or $428.36 a year.

    So, using savings of 1% that's $4.28 a year savings. Hummmm.

    Oh, did I mention that I live near Buffalo NY? Pretty cold here.

    I got one of these for Christmas. It sits here still in the shrink wrap.

    I got the Honeywell internet thermostat for about $125. Easy setup, works fine. Not sure if it solves and of the issues mentioned above. There is a second gen more pricy Nest that may solve those problems but too pricy IMHO..
