Well first of all it arrived very fast and packaged quite well. To my surprise, it was larger than I thought. Highly recommended, good value.

A nice decorative item. These have always fascinated me, being technically minded. They are fun to watch and a nice conversation piece. I have purchased these as gifts in the past but finally got one for myself. Got another for my daughter. This item is tall enough, ergo has enough bulbs, so as to have adequate temp. swing capacity, in a normal living environment, you're not out of balls! Shorter units reach there capacity too early. As stated the fluid is nasty if broken so make sure you don't break one over carpeting. Finally if you're really serious about reading temperature you might want to get an item a little more advanced than Galileo's first attempt.

It was exactly what I was expecting. Wrapped very well so no chance of breaking. It's beautiful and I would recommend!

This is a beautiful piece. I love mine and decided to purchase two as gifts. Everyone who sees this always comments on how unique it is.

Wasn't very accurate and the floating globes caught on each other. During a move it was broken, and the mess was smelly and oily.

Ok...the picture looks just like the product, but it is SO much nicer looking bigger! This item was VERY well wrapped for the shipment (I was a little concerned about that...glass + liquid...) and it arrived safe and sound. Since it is so COLD here in Ohio, it took an entire day and a half for the thermometer to be accurate after sitting in the sub-zero temperatures on the porch! The temperature shown is actually a range, not the exact temp - each float has a little charm with a temp underneath. Most of the floats stay at the top for moderate temps, and the lowest float is closest to the actual temp. Ours actually looks exactly like the pic shown which means it is 68 degrees in the house. The hotter it is the more floats go to the bottom. If all the floats are up the temp is lower than 60 degrees. My science-loving teenager loves it. The thermometer looks best against a light-colored wall or surface. Well worth the price.

I was replacing my mothers Galileo thermometer as a birthday present for her. When I found this one thru amazon, I knew it was the one I wanted. I was not disappointed. It arrived on time and in one piece and of course the price was amazing. I would very much recommend to anyone to use amazon for this product.

Had one but left it behind when we moved. This one is bigger and still intrigues and amazes me how it works. Way to go Galileo!
