    Interesting article chaps. I have both and it looks like my digital one, the lcd has bled making the numbers “blurry”, has that happened to anyone else?

    Analog one is rock solid and is pretty acurate.

    I use numerous digital hygrometers, but I calibrate them with an Extech Humidity/Temperature Pen kit. (#445580). I’ve had the Extech for over 10 years and it is perfect for my uses.

    I have 8 humidors of various sizes. I have both analog and digitals. I have been lucky I guess, since all of my analogs are spot on (salt test). Every once in a while I put a digital in to verify my analogs and I have never had a problem. Both are good in my opinion if you have them calibrated correctly. It is also nice to verify one against another.

    I have used both styles. The main hygrometer on my humidor is analog. I also have a Caliber digital that I bought from Amazon for $25. The Caliber works faster, is more accurate and is a lot more sensitive to changes in the humidor (like when I open the lid) Needless to say, I rely on the digital (it also has a +/- of only 1 degree.

    Starting from the That reasoning both fulfill its initial function I prefer the elegance that provide analogues . The other is only my humidor will make look like a robot

    I have 4 of the caliber IV and even these can be + or – 5% on rh. You don’t get into the 1% accuracy range until you go to the $55 price range. Look at http://www.calright.com for an example

    I bought the Caliber 4R after reading a review on another website. I highly recommend it, it’s accurate and looks great in my humidor. You get the analog look and feel but there is also a digital display for more accurate readings. Here’s the review/guide which helped me out https://www.weatherstationadvisor.com/best-hygrometer-reviews/
