I did a search and found nothing in this thread about these so figured I would ask what brand everybody uses.

I have Had a couple of "ACU>RITE indoor/outdoor units One worked alright and one was not dependable. When we first moved here we had one for years that worked very well. Unfortunately I do not remember the brand name.

I figured just about everybody down here uses these things and perhaps I could be pointed in the right direction for a more accurate and dependable brand or if not that, then be told to give ACU>RITE a chance again because maybe I just had bad luck.

We have an ACU-Rite and it's worked fine for 2+ years at least. Maybe you just got a bummer of a unit. Happens with everything. NO company builds 100% defect free products.

I have had 2 Acu Rite thermomiters and both stopped responding within days of install. I also thought it must have been a bad unit. After buying the 2nd one and it failing I put a stick on mechanical unit on the Lanai window 2 years later its still working acurately

Ours is made by LA CROSSE Technologies. Purchased on Amazon. It's nice for about $30.
