I haven't tried the Lutron stats with anything but a Lutron system, but I've had my share of issues with them, mostly on the order of getting them to talk to the system properly. I haven't found any that work "great" with AMX. But most of them don't work all that well with anything really. It seems to me the entire thermostat industry is plagued by sloppiness and shoddy engineering. I've even seen a Honeywell stand-alone thermostat fail because it's batteries were low ... the display was on, no low battery indicator, it just wouldn't fire it's relays until the battery was replaced.
We've settled on Aprilaire. They have their issues, but usually once you work them out they are OK ... until one fails completely. But it's usually obvious and catastrophic enough of a failure that you know what to replace right away. Usually. The exceptions are a true nightmare, but thankfully not common.

I've had really good luck with the 8870s. The new ones do seem to have their problems. There is a known issue with the newer ones, version 1 firmware. Also, you cannot mix and match version 1s and version 2s.

But are 8800's v2 working good, similar to what we had with the 8870's?
