got some great digital temp/humid thermometers on ebay for $2 each. came from china so it took about 2 weeks. Also they are in Celsius.
Some die but some last a while. Better then $8 in petco

All the Zoo Med and Exo Terra hygrometer/thermometers are highly inaccurate 10-20%RH off. I know because I compared them with actual calibrated humidity sensors.

I recommend the Acurite Indoor Humidity Monitors which can log daily min/max humidity and temperature values. They are $9.85 each at Home Depot's Garden section.

Another good humidity gauge is the Hydroset II which can be found on Amazon.com for around $18. The Hydroset II is user-calibratable as well. You can buy a calibration kit for $5 and change the humidity settings yourself using a simple dial knob.

I've tried all the Zoo Med and Exo Terra ones and these are the only two that I know are accurate.
