Re: [APD] Moving tank outside under back porch- concerns? (paludarium)

I haven't used this particular model but I have used a
number of others. The better models are accurate within
about 1 degree F (regardless of the resolution of the
display) and the worse ones are off by about 3 degrees F. 
Youcan always get lab grade instruments if greater accuracy
is needed, but at much higher prices. I've used them for
years without trouble, but now and then, as with anything,
you might get a clinker. ;-)
