I am currently using Veriteq (Spectrum 2000), ACR (Smartreader Plus
2), and Onset (HOBO Pro Temp/RH) dataloggers.  I am pleased with the
performance of all of these products.  The ACR Smartreader Plus
loggers have some useful alarm and scheduled download capabilities,
but for general monitoring of temperature and relative humidity, I
find the Onset loggers preferable to the others on the basis of
sophistication of software, cost, and compatibility with a shuttle
device that facilitates remote downloading.

Another product you may wish to consider is the Dickson TM121 which
has an onboard digital display, allowing spot reading without
downloading.  I haven't personally used these, but would be
interested in hearing from anyone on the DistList who has.
