    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    The build quality feels good on this unit
    Backlit LCD
    Has a laser which can be turned on or off
    Has both °F and °C
    Came with a 9v battery
    LCD seems to indicate battery charge.

    Cons:

    The LCD showed me that the new battery was almost out of charge.
    9v Battery can be a bit annoying to fit in but not a major issue.

    OtherThoughts:

    The accuracy of this unit seems pretty good, I pointed it on an outside thermometer which said 15°C and I got 15.3°C, I also tried it in two freezers an that gave ~-15°C and ~-23°C. Though I have not tried soldering temperatures yet, I'd say this unit is pretty accurate.
    An IR thermometer of almost the same specs locally would have cost me $90 total so this is a really good price for me.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it if it costs more locally.
