Steam Boiler Programmable Thermostat

What is the BEST Programmable thermostat for a residential steam boiler/radiator system?

What attributes make it the most suitable for the system?

    I just installed a Honeywell VisionPRO 8000. My previous t-stat was also a Honeywell programmable.

    I'm a homeowner, not a pro, but I think the chief attribute for a t-stat suitable for a steam system is the ability to set the number of boiler firing cycles per hour. For steam, 1 cycle/hour is the recommended setting.

    See my post in this earlier thread for links to the online manuals for the Honeywell unit.
