This intelligent German design places the two most important scales (temperature and humidity) on opposite sides of the display and gives you an instant read of the room's condition with a long wand. The usual comfortable range is indicated by a colored band. The meter is 4-3/16" in diameter and stands 6" in height.

Can't Adjust
Reviewed By:   (Glen Burnie, MD) 
As an addendum to my initial review concerning the accuracy of the device: I got a very nice response from the manufacturer suggesting I use their enclosed instructions to adjust the meter. I tried but was unable to do so, in fact, the meter is now even more inaccurate and no amount of effort on my part seems to make any difference. I'm not clumsy with tools and though this procedure is a little daunting it is doable. Problem is: the needle will not stay where I put it. It springs back to what is now a reading several degrees too high. My advice, if you want a truly accurate desktop instrument, don't buy this one.

Thank you for your review on the Desktop Comfort Meter. We are sorry that you experienced trouble with this item. Our maker suggested  that the dial face should be held vertically when it is being adjusted. The hands are balanced across the axis of the pivot point, so adjusting while holding horizontal in your palm will give you that spring back of a few points.  Please feel free to send it back to us for a calibrated one, or if you wish, a refund. Again, we apologize for the convenience.

Questionable Accuracy
Reviewed By:   (Glen Burnie, Maryland) 
This device is lovely to look at, heavy, and quite elegant. However, although it has had ample time to "acclimatize" it is always in disagreement with other reliable thermometers in the same room. Only a by few degrees but enough to question its validity.

Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
Thank you for posting a review on the Desktop Comfort Meter.  According to our technician, these often need to be recalibrated which is common with thermometers of this type. Instructions should have been included with the meter but in case they were not, we have included them as an attachment in an email we sent to you. Hygrometers almost always need recalibrating annually. We are sorry that you have had some difficulty with it. Hopefully, these instructions will solve the problem.

Nice little weather station. Easy to read and see the comfort level. Did not need to calibrate it at all. Very good quality item.

A visual way to judge comfort
Reviewed By:   (Bedford, NH) 
This time of the year in New England it is good to be able to look at a visual idea to judge comfort. This allows you to see where the moisture level is in relationship to the temperature. It may just be all in the head, but during the cold weather who cares if you think you feel comfortable, you probably are. Besides, it looks nice and visitors always ask what it is.

Attractive design, small but easily readable.
