Pros: good price, changes behavior, nice design
Cons: eats batteries, a pain to re-sync, always says .3kw
I bought this little baby roughly 2 years ago and I love what it has done for my home and family. It was a pain to sync the thing to my meter, but once up and running, our dirty little energy secrets were out. Want to see an environmentalist cry? Show them the power meter as their hot shower runs into its 10th minute. It effectively turns you into a home hypermiler, as you tweak everything possible to get those kw readouts lower. Sure, you could have your spouse call you on your cellphone while reading each spin of the disk outside in the rain to save the $149, but buying this gadget can save an environmentalist's marriage! Until I see a better value in power metering, Blueline gets my money, and gives it back in savings as I watch the wattage tick by.
