Best priced and good quality thermometer – 1.2" LCD Digital Infrared Thermometer - Orange + Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
The build quality seems pretty good. It takes standard 9 volt batteries. The laser sight makes it much easier to be sure what you're measuring. Plenty accurate enough. Intuitive controls - you don't really need the manual!
Cons:
You cannot turn off the sound, which is loud! I can't measure temperatures at night, it will wake up the family!
Other:
This thing so far has been really instructive. Sure, it's cool and fun to use, especially with the laser sighting feature, but it also has real applications. I live in a yurt heated with a woodstove, and it's been super nice to see where the warm and cold spots are around both the walls, and the stove.
Bottomline:
I would think anyone could find a use for this. I'm not sure if it would be useful for finding a person's temperature, but for food and other stuff, it's awesome!
