My herms system is pretty tight, but even if I can read within .1 degree I cant adjust or maintain my rig in .1 degree increments.

thats understandable. its not the .1 degree adjustability.... its the .7 accuracy. it may read 154 but actually closer to 153... almost a full degree.

with the former, its will show .01 and it accurate to .1.

".01 accuracy over .7"

Um...no.


NEW SPLASH-PROOF REFERENCE THERMAPEN™
MODEL #222-213
High accuracy to ±0.04°C (±0.07°F)
Range from -94 to 392°F (-70 to 200°C)
Display resolution to 0.01°
Includes 5-point accredited calibration NIST-Traceable Certificate


Anyway, at $200 that's way over the top for brewing, imo...

Cheers!

How is this a problem?
