Thermostat choices.

Looking to get another thermostat. Looking at the vivarium ve 100 or 200 or the herpstat 1 basic. Currently have a helix DSP 1000 nothing wrong with it but would like to make it a back up since it's had a good 6 yrs of use.

Side note .. I won't be doing any breeding for a couple years son basic is fine.

I use a Vivarium Electronics VE 200 on radiant heat panels, and love it. I don't have any experience with the herpstat though so couldn't give a comparison.

I currently have in use herpstat 4, ve200, helix, and a ranco. I have been replacing all of mine with herpstats rack by rack. I like its reliability, performance, and accuracy. I have helix's that have over time been 4-5 degrees off. Not horrible if in a snake rack, but will cook your eggs if in an incubator. I have only had one of my herpstat 4 developed an issue and it was only the led dimmed. I called them and was sent out a replacement even though it was like 5 years old.

Iam thinking herpstat 1 basic over the 1 only because I don't need humidity control although the mechanical relay is a nice feature.
