I need three of them. They should be cheap, yet repeatedly accurate and reliable*. I really don't want to spend $373.00 per device, which is the cheapest I've found thus far.

Any thoughts???

*if they're cheap enough I'll give up reliability.;)

Extech's handheld unit has an RS232 interface.... you can log the readings on the PC. Only $189.
Yeah that's not really a good option for me.

I use a lot of their stuff. Crap works in some pretty nasty environments and cheap enough to not worry about it getting spanked.

Yeah there's lots of units like that available for cheap, but I need to be able to record the humidity range over a 24 hour period.

Glad to be of service Paul. If you need assistance feel free to call. I set up a green house with their stuff and it works really well.

TD's suggestion is good... Dataq has a humidity logger with USB interface for only 82 bucks, give or take..... you just plug it into your PC to download the log.
