    Rated 4.6 out of 5★ by 130reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by accurate, durable & inexpensive!! I've been through probably 4 thermometers since my son was born (now 4) & this one by far is the best!! It has lastest the longest (goin strong on 2 years) & it is the most accurate one I've bought!! I'm a nurse & its even more accurate than the ones we use at work! I even tried the new temporal scanner & it doesnt "slide" well across the forehead when your child has a fever & is sweating! The only thing I would add is dont forget to pull your infant/child's ear up & back to open the ear canal for a more accurate reading! 10/18/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great product I did alot of research before I picked this thermometer. My daughter is a year old and the old rectal thermometer was a struggle. She wouldnt stay still for the ten seconds it needed, and I was afraid with all of her protesting I would hurt her. I looked at the reviews and I didnt know what to think. Half said it was junk, but the other half said it was perfect and accurate. For nearly 40$ I didnt want to pay for someting that others said was junk. I went ahead and bought it anyways because my dauaghter had a fever and I had no way to check it. I was so happy with this product. I read the instructions,(you cant use the ear that was resting on a pillow or blanket) and tested it on myself about a dozen times and in both ears, the readings were always within .2 of the previous temp. Pretty accurate. I was 98.7. So I went in my daughters room and checked it while she was sleeping. She didnt even wake up, the beep was queit enough not to wake her but loud enouth for me to hear. The indicator light was helpful in making sure it was inserted correctly and taken correctly. and in case you dont hear the beep you can just watch for when the green light goes out. It only takes about two seconds. I checked her ear three times and I got the same reading within .2 degrees. 102.7, 102.5, and 102.7. I absolutely love this product and recomend it to everyone. It works with adults and squirming toddlers. It was well worth the 40$. And if anyone is skeptical like i was the cashier told me if i didnt like it i could return it. 10/15/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Reply to last comment This product is great. So everyone reading this knows, there is a difference in rectal, underarm, and oral temperatures. Rectal temps are usually higher, as they are internal, while underarm temps are lower, as they are external. Oral is the middle ground. This product is acurate, my opinion is that you maybe educate yourself about what normal temps for your age of child should be. 04/25/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful Product This ear thermometer is so easy to use, even my husband figure it out, without having to look at the instructions. It is very accurate and my daughter doesn't scream anymore when I go to take her temperature! 06/09/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Still the best after 18 yrs When my daughter was 1, she had ear infection after ear infection with her temp running as high as 104. The standard rectal, or axillary thermometers, weren't really a doable option when I had to check her temp so often.Then one day I came across a Braun Thermoscan HM-1. It was $75 dollars, which was a big investment then. I fell in love with it immediately. It was the one item that made taking her temp not the horrendous task that it had been.It always gave an accurate reading, batteries lasted forever, it was wonderful.Since it worked so well, I decided to try another brand of thermometer of this type. I put batteries in it, used it one time, put it in the drawer and went back to "old faithful". I was never able to get an actual reading with it.Last week, I decided to buy another one, but this time stuck with the Braun Thermoscan. I brought it home, it came with batteries already installed, turned it on and tried it out. Perfect, just like the HM-1.What did I do with my HM-1, it is still taking accurate readings, so, I sent it home with my, now almost 19yr old baby girl!If you want an electronic thermometer that is accurate, durable, over-all wonderful, you need to stick with Braun Thermoscan. Time is the best judge ever. 01/29/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great product Works well, easy to use, very accurate. However, for it to READ accurately, you MUST use it correctly. It MUST be put all the way INTO the ear canal as far as it will go without hurting - it is meant to take the temperature of the EAR DRUM, not the side of the ear canal. Being a nurse, I have found LOTS of people who can't do it properly, including some nurses and aides in the hospitals. When used properly, it is very accurate - way more so than oral thermometers. Most people don't realize (or care) that oral thermometers are NOT accurate if you have had anything to eat or drink in the past 30 minutes - OR if you breathe through your mouth, it will not be an accurate reading either. This is a must have, in my household - I even take it to the hospital when I have a family member admitted, because the oral temps they take there are NOT accurate! 01/01/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Very basic, but accurate. This is a very accurate thermometer. I love that, but there are a few features that I have had in previous ones that I wish this had. It does not have a backlit screen, which means that you cannot read a temperature in the dark, and it does not have a fever alarm which alerts you if the temperature is elevated.Overall I think it is a great product, and much more accurate then the cheaper ear thermometer that I had before this one. I use this on my 2 year old son, as well as myself. It is great. 11/07/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Great thermometer What I love best about this product is the fact that there is a visual indicator of the thermometer's readiness for use, as well as for when the temperature is taken. My husband is hard of hearing, and he would be unable to use this without those features because he cannot hear the beeps.And my kids love it. They like to play a game for which ear we're going to use for their temperature.I just wish the plastic sheaths that cover the tip were more reasonably priced. With two children (one of whom spikes high fevers when sick), it feels like I am constantly needing to buy more. 11/29/2010
