Lost of money – 0.6" LCD Portable Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer - White (-50~220°C Range) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Compact, lightweight. Can measure some temperature +-1° comparing to the ordinary thermometer.
Cons:
Not accurate sometimes. Show about 50-60°C on a boiling water, while the another model (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.41473, but bought in another place) shows 98°C. There is no backlight. Replacing batteries is complicated, the battery holder is not of a good quality (terminal was broken soon, so i was to resolder it). Spare batteries are welcome - it drains a set of batteries in a week even if not used. I'm shocked. I have changed the batteries about 4 times in a month.
Other:
Bottomline:
I don't like it and a wouldn't suggest to buy it to anybody. You'd better get an http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.41473 - it is larger and some more expensive, but it is BETTER.
