We have the Exergen temporal thermometer but it had features that bothered me. I didn't like that Exergen didn't light up AND the button was on the underside. When I saw Braun had this thermometer with those two key features that I wanted I decided to get it. I love that it not only lights up for dark rooms but it lights up in green, yellow or red to let you know from one glance if the temperature is normal or not. It reassured me that one of my children just ran higher but normal temps (98.8-99.1). I love that the button and viewing screen are on the side facing me when I take a temp. The part that touches the forehead is also softer and a better shape for taking a good temperature (the Exergen one is really hard plastic and can hurt if you press too hard).

I compared both thermometers together to see how accurate the readings were. They both give me the same readings on one person. I just like the features on this Braun better. I keep the Exergen in one First Aid kit and keep the Braun on the main level of our house. If I had to recommend someone get one I would recommend this Braun. Right now I think they run about the same prices. If price were an issue Exergen is still a good one to get; just not as functionally attractive.

A lot of negative reviews are based on the user not using the thermometer correctly (no matter the thermometer). You cannot take back-to-back temperatures. You will get different readings. If you try to take a temp and it messes up you need to wait about 60 seconds before taking a new temp so the mechanism can recalibrate. You can often get one reading (like 100.4) and then immediately re-take the temp and get something lower (like 99.9). WAIT to retake a temp with the same thermometer or you will not get accurate readings. Hope that helps!

After reading all the reviews on how wildly inaccurate this thing is and then reading all the rave reviews, I figured that the folks who didn't like this thermometer must be a tad "slow" and didn't know how to use it correctly. I threw caution to the wind and bought one 5 months ago, primarily for use with my now 11-month old daughter. Heed my warning: the reviews complaining of this being inaccurate are SPOT ON. We don't trust this thermometer much more than as a "is it possible she has a temperature?" indicator, and often not even for that. For example, after a month of realizing this thing varies a ridiculous amount my husband and I can each took 5 readings within a 30 minute timeframe, some back to back, some waiting 5 minutes, some waiting 10. We got ranges of 99.1 to 102.1 on a quiet, non-moving baby. Yes, ranges of almost 3 degrees. The rectal thermometer verified her actual temperature was 102.4.
This thermometer was a huge waste of money and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. After doing some sleuthing I find that a large majority of the "rave" reviews come from folks who were provided this thermometer free to review. Sure, some folks may not be biased when they write a review on a free product, but based on the high rating this thermometer has on Amazon vs. my horrendous first-hand experience with it I'm thinking those folks are few and far between.
Do yourself a favor and do NOT buy this thermometer.

It must be flu season. In the past few months, I have received 4 different thermometers to review! The first three I got from a company that wanted beta testers for their new thermometer, and then most recently, Influenster.com sent me the new Braun forehead thermometer to review.

One of the thermometers I received earlier was the Exergen Temporal Artery Thermometer. It happens to be very similar to the new Braun Forehead Thermometer, which makes it easier for me to compare the two products and determine which one I like better.

Since I have a wriggly two year old, I have long given up on doing a rectal measurement when she seems sick, and even doing an underarm measurement is a major challenge. Measurement from the forehead, while it seems like it wouldn't be as accurate, especially if your kid has been running around a lot, is so much easier than the traditional methods - and I've been happy with the accuracy of the results.

In terms of user-friendliness, the Braun is very simple to use. You turn it on, place it on your forehead, then press the measurement button and swipe it across your forehead to your temple. You're supposed to go back again, but the "beep" - indicating that the measurement has been taken - always beats me to it. The Exergen works in much the same way except there is no "on" button, which throws me off each time I use it, and you have to hold down the button the whole time that you take the measurement, which I find takes a bit of practice.

The Braun thermometer is lightweight and compact - more so than the Exergen version.
