It WORKS – 1.2" LCD Digital Infrared Thermometer - Orange + Black Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Accurate. Sleek. No-nonsense design. Professional looking. Great grip. Great plastic-rubbery texture on touch.
Cons:
Power hog: if you forget the supplied 9V battery inside the machine, it can drain out it in a matter of days - even when not in use. Although the user manual states a error tolerance of 0.1% I found it more close to 5%. But still OK for me.
Other:
Despite what some others said, I found my thermometer pretty accurate (+ or - 5% difference) on readings I done. The grip fits perfectly on my hands and it got a smooth - very comfortable to touch - rubbery finish. Its design is very elegant and the interface is pretty straight-forward, easy to understand.
Bottomline:
Kind of expensive (for DX standards) but its reliability and usability make up for it. It is not THAT professionally precise, but depending on your intended use it may be enough - just bear this in mind.
