Nicely made and well constructed. I have another brand very similar and this is a much better physical design & construction.

I use all kinds of temperature measuring gear. From very accurate mercury filled lab thermometers to Lab grade Fluke digitals. Browsing through a Frys electronics I purchased the MicroTemp brand that was the equivalent of this Kindrex. The Kindrex is better made and the battery replacement method is a breeze compared to the MicroTemp.

The specs on all of these are not very tight, that's understandable considering the price. Even so I found the MicroTemp unit consistanly within 1 degree F and consistanly repeatable. NOT so with the Kintrex, which would give inconsistant readings all over the place by 2-5 degrees. Maybe I got a better than average MicroTemp and a bit worse than average Kintrex?

I bought the Kintrex because of the higher measurement range, 428F v. 230F for the MicroTemp. Maybe the accuracy is off because it's based on a percent of Full scale and with the Kintrex having a higher full scale this would account for the problems.

If this is the case I would recommend a person buy the MicroTemp for measurements under 200F and only buy the Kintrex if they require measurements over 200F, such as Automotive use where temps are higher.

We purchased this thermometer for use in a marine aquaculture facility. It is an extremely harsh environment and we have a lot of "waterproof" equipment that fails quickly with constant exposure to salt water. This thermometer has held up extremely well.

It is easy to use and compact enough to easily slip into your pocket. I recommend this product to anyone who needs a waterproof infrared thermometer.

I purchased this product for measuring the engine temps of nitro RC cars. when tuning an RC car - the head temp is an important way to determine if you're running it lean or rich.

this IR thermometer is perfect for doing this.. its small, and accurate (when used next to a much larger/more expensive laser unit - it measures withing a few tenths of a degree each time) and the readings are pretty fast.

I haven't tested out its waterproof abilities yet, but it feels solid, and has o rings in all the appropriate spots - so i don't doubt them.

One neat feature which i'm not sure was documented - if you press and hold the button, you get continuous readings... useful for scanning over a larger area to look for hot spots, or just to ensure a more accurate picture of whats going on with whatever you're measuring.

the only thing i wish it had was a backlight - but i'm not deducting a star from it, because it never claimed to have one.

All told - i'm very satisfied with this purchase, and have already recommended it to friends in the RC hobby. The price was great, and the performance is a lot better than i expected for the price.

I have owned a bunch of infrared thermometers over the years, and the new Kintrex is the smallest I've come across. The small size is important to me since it means I'm more likely to have the device with me when I need it. (The older, larger thermometers had a very strong tendency to get left behind when space got tight.) The Kintrex does exactly what it's supposed to do, costs very little, and was delivered very quickly by Amazon. Though I originally got interested in infrared thermometers for bread baking, I quickly discovered many other uses... you will too.

Thermometer is easy to use and relatively accurate. I am a culinary trainer/executive steward at the Grand Canyon. Taking temperatures at the 4 units and 6 restaurants is part of my daily duties. The thermometer would be within 12 degrees (at worst) of the ambient temperature of any fridge or freezer. Is about the size of a tube of lipstick and fits easily in my pocket or purse. The reading only takes a second which greatly reduces the time it takes me to do rounds. The only problem I have had is that the batteries were dead within 2 weeks. I purchased replacement batteries (easy to find watch batteries 2 each) that cost me another $10. good product that I will use until its demise. Good value, Good product.

This is on OK device, small and fairly accurate. Really liked the convenience but the display was too small and depending what you are working on can be a problem to read. Had a friend try to out, he is left handed, and noted that it was very hard to read. So I sent it back. I bought the Actron CP7875 PocketTherm Infrared Thermometer on Amazon for 19 bucks and works just as well, almost as small and has a large/lighted display. May want to take a look at that one before you decide on this one.

I didn't realize until I started to write this review that the accuracy was ±4 degrees. My thermometer reads about 4.5° below other thermometers I have.

Still gave the product 5 stars because it does what the description says it should, and temperature accuracy is still within listed specs, though leaves something to be desired.

Two of the three didn't work out of the box. After messing with the batteries on the 2 I got them to work. One is still finicky. All three read the same temp when tested.
