wireless thermometer experience?

Hey there,

I'm trying to finalize purchases of equipment for my first tank and I've narrowed my thermometer selection down to these two.

Speedtech instruments wireless station + sensors

Rainbow Lifeguard big temp alert

I read a couple recommendations for the Rainbow Lifeguard one, but I can't seem to find anything about the Speedtech setup. Price is pretty comparable (I'd probably get a 2nd wireless sensor and found the Big Temp for a little cheaper elsewhere). The wireless setup seems pretty sweet, but it says it's +/- 2 F, and I can't seem to find anything about the accuracy of the Big Temp Alert.

Any experience or suggestions either way?

I've got the Little Time or Temp and it works great. The probe is the tank, readout above it and heaters are in the sump.

I got the little time or temp and it works great too. I just ordered the wireless one for my QT and garbage can for water changes. I will know if it works in the next week or so. I ordered 2 extra probes so I can stick one in my display to see how accurate it is compared to my little time or temp.
