100% recommend. Not a normal purchase for someone w/out children but so thankful to have this amazing tool at my disposal during the pandemic!!! I love being able to accurately and quickly take my temperature after participating in a risky covid gathering like my grandmother's funeral.

Customer reviews & ratings
Simplicity, Repeatability, and accuracy
Works as expected. I needed something faster than traditional mouth thermometer since my employer requires that I monitor before coming to work each day. It gives consistent readings if I use it twice in a row. I got Exergen because my research showed that the temperature reported by this brand could be relied upon to be accurate.
Easy to use
I think this touch model is more reliable than the new no touch models. Instead of scanning the forehead it can also be used at a single point behind the ear. Very useful for multiple family members that need to take temperature checks daily - no cleaning required.
Fast and Accurate
I read many of the on-line reviews made by purchasers; most of them talked about their inability to get a accurate reading. I went ahead with the purchase. I am very happy with this thermometer. It is easy to use and fast. Make sure you have the top off of the thermometer and hold it close to the forehead and move it slowly.
Great thermometer, wonderful service.
This thermometer was a courtesy replacement for one lost in transit. Customer Service representative was very diligent in expediting the order.
The thermometer is easy to use and reflects accurate temperatures (tested it against an old fashioned model).
Wonderful. Very easy to use and read. My only problem was getting the battery in. Someone with arthritis or weak hands should be aware of the difficulty prior to first use
comfort scanner temporal thermometer
bought this for 11 month old grand daughter who has had recurrent fevers. it gives you a ballpark temp but i recommend repeating with a rectal temp if it's very high. Also helps to repeat the temp 2-3 times to check if it's within close range of previous ones.
Very inaccurate. It scans 2-3 degrees below actual temperature.
Comfort Scanner temporal thermometer.
The calibration is way off. Using my old thermometer , it showed my temp at 98.6 . I know I did not have a fever, however with new thermometer it showed 102.1
Which was wrong. I tried again 2 hours later with the same 102.1 reading.
Avoid -- look for one that lasts longer
This lasted exactly 4 months and no longer works properly. It constantly reads "Lo" even though we have followed the cleaning instructions. Disappointed that we paid almost $38 for a medical grade device that didn't even last a year. i DO NOT RECOMMEND!
