I have Central Ac i need to replace thermostat right now i have a honeywell ct8775c digital round i am on my second one in 2 years and they keep failing i am looking to replace it i want something simple and non programmable with compressor time delay protection i was looking at the honeywell pro 3000 how is the reliability of the pro 3000 or is there a comparable thermostat you recommond such as a robert shaw model? The ct8775c have both been defective had hvac guy check system and he said all wiring is ok ANy thoughts?

I'd look at it this way - a good thermostat should last for a while - like min 10 years, likely more if it is a good one. It will be the main control of 50% of your utility bills (heating & cooling) and an control an expensive motor of your home - your heating and cooling system for those 10 years. And you will adjust it probably 1x a day on average - so 3,650 time, or more. A good programmable model is likely to save you $200 a year - or $2,000 over 10 years.
If you are thinking of an inexpensive pro 3000 Honeywell, a cheap Robertshaw of a crappy white Rogers (who changed their name to Emerson now) and not investing a little more to get a better product - I like the VisionPRO best - then all I can say is you get what you pay for. Good luck...

Hands down on the Honeywell FocusPro 5000 t-stat, and they are non-programable.

It does look like a nice thermostat but does the focuspro5000 have an adjustable differential?

You mean temp swing? No, Honeywell don't do that. Temp swing leads to discomfort. I had a t-stat that did the temp swing, and I did not like it. Now I have Honeywell, no swing and I don't get that feeling.. "Is that t-stat going to start the furnace yet?"
Also it says multi stage will it regular Central AC
Yes, as long the installer sets up the menu to do a single stage A/C, it will work.

OK if it dosn't do temp swings can i adjust the CPH for AC. NO Furnace have seperate hot water boiler with baseboards on different thermostat.

Yes, it can change the CPH for cooling mode..
Are the t-stat near by each other in a way? If so, You can have the dealer combind the two into one stat.
