    Just alerting everyone, I picked up two of them for $58 and free shipping. The one I have already ran me ~$40.

    Actually it's $28.99:



    NOTE: This is not the ET-732 which is listed for $59.99 on Amazon.

    Good deal. Just to be clear, however, this isn't the ET-732 that everyone on this forum raves about. This is the older model with limited range and functionality. I understand it's a good unit, just not the newer updated version. Those not familiar with them or new to the forum might see all the love for the 732 and mistakenly order this one like I nearly did.

    Yup, ET-73(not ET-732), a lot of people don't need the 300' of range and the $60+ price tag. The ET-73 with the 100' range has been more than sufficient for me and many others. I just got 2 ET-73s for the price of one ET-732.

    Anyway thanks for clarifying for others.

    Big differences between the ET-732 and the ET-73

    Main difference is the range.  Even though the ET-73 claims to have a range of 100', you will not be able to receive a signal thru a solid door or wall.  If you lose the signal, the receiver DOES NOT signal you, so your receiver will read the last received temp.

    I can receive the signal from my ET-732 in every room of my house, including the basement.

    It's a great deal at $29.99, but be aware of the differences!!!

    After reading of the limitations with the old ET-73, I held off my purchase until the ET-732 came out.

    Good luck and good smoking.

     A lot of issues with the ET-732 being reported, happy I went with the ET-73.
