Pros: works for its price range
Cons: wish it would display the temperature.

it works great for its price range. it's definitely not a 200 dollar thermostat, but will work. Just wish it would display the current temperature. This means you will need a good thermometer with it also. Mine has worked with no problems and i have been happy with it.

Pros: Affordable, Simple to set up, Reliable
Cons: No digital display

Good little thermostat, i have two running and i havent had any issues with them. For the price range on these guys, you cant beat it. Of course, a pricier T-stat is going to have more bells and whistles, but if you want to use these for a simple setup, or for a small collection in a rack, this will get the job done.

A leader's task so clearly, To find a path out of the dark"

Pros: Does ok for simple use
Cons: sways about 5 degrees temp.no temp display. no alarms for loose probes

I bought a couple of these a few years ago when getting into boa's.I found that it did its thing but the temps swayed a bit and i didnt like that when having boa's and boa's that were pregnant.
I still have a couple in use for lizards.

Pros: price

I use mine now to heat the pad for roach colony only. The temps will vary -+5 degrees. Would not recommend for incubators or racks.

Pros:
Cons:

Zoo Med is typically a trustworthy brand. So far this company hasn't really let me down by any stretch. What I liked most about this gadget was just how simply and efficient it is. Once I adjusted my temperature at 90 degrees, it wouldn't allow fluctuation or anything like that (sparring 1 degree). So generally, it won't fail you and comes at an awesome price as well. Its adhesive is also very useful, sticks to the terrarium really well so you don't have to worry about it falling off or anything, yet can be removed if you wish.

The probe is unobtrusive and simply slides into the terrarium, stays on the warm end and keeps things smooth. It is long enough as well.

The only thing 'wrong' with this thermostat is the fact that it isn't digital, which is kind of silly and might take a while to adjust (around 30 minutes) and make sure you've got it at the right temperature. You need a thermometer with this thing, or else you could end up making it too hot or too cool for your animal.
