Inaccurate and inconsistent

I've only had this product two months. It is entirely inaccurate and inconsistent. You could take your temperature back to back and get wildly different results. For nearly $15, I expected a lot more. If I could give it a zero, I would.

No, I don't recommend this product

don't buy

I just bought 2 weeks ago and it seemed to work good, but then it started taking longer for it to get temperature. Now it Shuts off automatically after a minute and i don't get a reading. I also noticed it is not the right temperature it reads under what it actually is.

No, I don't recommend this product

love this thermometer

It's fast and easy to use, beeps when it is done and stores 1 temp in memory. The temp indicator lights are great for sitters or dads that don't know which temps are normal. It has a great battery life. I use mine daily for BBT charting, and on my husband and children when they are ill. The only drawback is that it is sometimes difficult to find a replacement battery.

Yes, I recommend this product
