Nest Thermostat E

 

The Nest Thermostat E offers most of the same smart features as its more expensive siblings, but it can't control complex multi-stage HVAC systems.

Reasonably priced. Easy to install. Stylish design. Works with other Nest and third-party smart home devices. Supports Alexa and Google Home voice commands and IFTTT applets.

Frosted display can be difficult to read. Does not support as many HVAC components as the Nest Learning Thermostat. No remote sensors.

With the Nest Thermostat E, you get nearly all of the same smart functionality that you get with the Nest Learning Thermostat for around $80 less. Granted, you don't get as many color choices, and the display isn't quite as sharp, but the Nest E offers...

A smart Nest thermostat for a lot less cash

 

Nest's Thermostat E looks and acts like the original -- for just $169.

Plastic hardware makes Nest's $169 Thermostat E more affordable, but it has most of the same smarts as the pricier Learning Thermostat.

The Thermostat E has a low-resolution screen, it doesn't support Nest's "Farsight" display and it isn't compatible with quite as many HVAC systems as the original. Nest thermostats still don't come with remote temperature sensors.

The Thermostat E is almost as smart as Nest's other model -- and all for 80 bucks less.

Nest Thermostat E review: Plastic replaces stainless steel and glass to achieve a lower price tag

 

Nest's latest thermostat is a whole lot cheaper, but it's not boring.

The same smart and reliable performance as more expensive version ; Disappears into a white wall

It looks like the budget version of the Nest ; Doesn't display as much information as some comparably priced competitors ; Not compatible with more sophisticated HVAC systems

Nest Thermostat E Review: Now This Is Easy

 

Nest Thermostat E's control over our home's HVAC system has been a very positive experience. While not all of its efficiency options worked well in my house, it's nice that Nest offers so many options. At $149, the Nest E is about $50 less than the...

Simple installation ; Compatible with multiple HVAC systems ; Google Home, Alexa compatible ; Multiple efficiencies ; Alerts and reports

Doesn't work with Apple HomeKit ; Remote monitors lack occupancy sensor

The Nest Thermostat E is an attractive and relatively affordable smart thermostat, and it's also one of the easiest to use.

The Nest Thermostat E is a fantastic product for those that want most of the features of a premium product without paying a premium price

Limited color options, display is harder to read

Performing very similarly to the , the is an all-around, awesome product at a great price. While it lacks the high-definition display and the variety of color options, it is highly accurate and very easy to install. It's a product definitely worth...

Nest Thermostat E review

 

I've literally waited years for a more affordable Nest -- and it's finally here in the form of the $169 Thermostat E. At 80 bucks less than Nest's premium Learning Thermostat , the E excels in its simplicity.

The Thermostat E has a low-resolution screen, it doesn't support Nest's "Farsight" display and it isn't compatible with quite as many HVAC systems as the original. Nest thermostats still don't come with remote temperature sensors.
