Good deal – Digital Talking Forehead-IR InfraRed Body Temperature Thermometer Reviews

posted by midlander on 02/17/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- very nice built quality
- fast reading
- seems precise
- memory for last 30 readings incl. date of measurement
- easy to use
- talking can be turned off
Cons:
- although written in English, the instruction manual is not completely clear
- manual says that it can speak in 6 languages, mine speaks only English (or there is some secret way how to change it which I do not know)
- manual also mentions display backlight, which does not work
- should be able to use for in-ear measurement, but without proper extension piece it is difficult; didn't find any instructions for this kind of measurement in manual
- small carrying/protecting case or bag would be nice.
Other:
Exactly the same unit costs about 30% more in local shop. As mentioned in manual, one needs some "calibration" for forehead measurement to know what is his common temperature and when fever begins.
Bottomline:
So far it seems like a very good deal.
