Pros:
You can easily change settings from celsius to farenheit. There is also a feature that allows you to switch the laser of which I don't use but someone might find it handy. I was surprised at the accuracy of this thermometer, I would compare it to other thermometers I had around the house and it alway's came within a degree or two of those readings. The backlit LCD is a very nice addition that lets you easily read the screen.
Cons:
I guess the only con I can think of is that it came with a generic battery so i'm thinking it probably won't last long.
Other:
I've never used an infared thermometer but I was surprised that it can even read the correct temperature of water. I compared it with my thermometer in my Reef aquarium at home and this infared thermometer came within .5 degrees of what the other thermometer read.
Bottomline:
The bottomline is that this is a great tool for the price and one can find a few uses for it around the home. I mainly use this to tune my nitro RC car and it works very nicely.
