I have tested the Gemini Tinyview and compared it to a number of
other loggers for monitoring temperature and RH.  I too found that
it was an excellent product.  The software is good, the display and
alarm features are useful, and the price competitive.  The
particular logger that I tested was slightly out of calibration
however, this may have been an isolated incident.   Nonetheless, I
would recommend that you test any new units against a psychrometer
or saturated salt solution to ensure that your readings are
accurate.  Providing it is properly calibrated, from my trials I can
not see any reason why this logger would not be a good for general
environmental monitoring.

I compared a number of different loggers in a short article in the
January 2001 AIC newsletter.  If you would like me to e-mail a copy
please don't hesitate to contact me off list.
