Comment:
We have a split unit 3-ton central heat/air in South Florida, so the AC is pretty much always on when we're home. These work great, particularly with the smoke detectors that also act as sensors. So they program themselves. the wifi was easy to establish and then controlling the thermostat from wherever you are is great. It looks great on the venetian marble wall where some of the large bulky thermostats would ruin the look.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have zoned heat/AC, units are 11yrs. old. I have the infamous C wire to properly power both units. Have had to replace the thermostat bases twice through Nest. Two other times through the retailer (returned entire units) One fried base also fried my 24v transformer and circuit board. Have had the AC turn on in the middle of Winter a few times when the base fails. I've since gotten in the habit of removing the outside fuse to keep the units from operating in Winter. I've gone as far as installing separate relays at each furnace to isolate voltage spikes to the Nest thermostats. This also proved ineffective as I just had another base go up in smoke. Nest support acknowledges the faulty bases, but nothing seems to be done to correct the problem.
