I just discovered reptile city and I must say wow, a lot of good things there

I just wanted to ask about thermostats, specifically analogue and digital ones. Whats the difference? Are digital ones really worth the 250 extra?

I have never used a thermostat before and have no knowledge about them, other than they are connected up to your wiring system and used to regulate the electricity to ensure you have the correct temp range and don't overheat your reptiles. Are the analogue thermostats particularly difficult to use?

Which would you guys use and why?

I’ve purchased plenty items from Reptile City and I collected directly. Always been very happy with the service and products.
I got myself one of the Digital thermostats ATC300 I think for around R500. Worth every penny and keeps my heat pads nice and safe for my critters.
Wiring is very simple and does an outstanding job. I’d avoid the analogue ones, probably less accurate and looks ugly. Just my opinion :)
