    GNiessen -- Northern Alabama   10/3/2011
    The Microsoft Hohm system is scheduled to terminate service effective May 31, 2012. So at that time this will not work. Unless there is another service or application that works with it.
    ROBERT -- los alamitos, XX   10/30/2010
    Great product. More useful than I originally thought it would be. Easy to install, but need to know some information about your utility rates in order to use the cost information. Usage information works easily without any configuration.
    CLIFFORD -- marina del rey, CA   10/3/2010
    Returned, because it needed Item 90411 which was returned due to not working with my meter.
    DAVID -- lucas, TX   9/9/2010
    I am pleased with the device and it works as expected. The only thing that could be improved and get an excellent rating would to have software which can download data directly to a text or excel format file for charting energy usage. If Microsoft Hohm service is ever discontinued then there is no method to view the historical data.
