Taylor Precision Products 90178 6-Inch Diameter Outdoor Thermometer With Birds Inset
The bird thermometer looked nice in our back porch, but I couldn't rely on it for an accurate indication of the actual temperature. This Taylor thermometer relies on the accuracy of a coiled bi-metallic strip and the manual placement of the pointer relative to the thermometer scale. I compared the reading of the thermometer to three digital thermometers and the Taylor product was actually 5 degrees off. I found this to be unacceptable, so I contacted the manufacturer. Taylor's customer service offered to send me a replacement, but couldn't refund me since the purchase was made through Walmart. I contacted Walmart's supplier, ShopChanute, and they refunded me. If you don't mind a slight error in temperature readings, the art work on the Taylor product is a nice decoration for almost any wall.
