Update: Nice device, with one flaw [well, more than one now]
on June 13, 2011
Update 2 years after purchase:
Not only did it continue losing connection quite frequently. Now it gives me very irrational readings. Today it showed me 113 degrees. Well, I live in Massachusetts, not Arizona! I have tried repeatedly to reset the device by removing the batteries in sensor and display, to no avail. Most of the time the temperature reading seems reasonable but at times it just spikes to totally absurd levels, which makes it basically useless.
I was looking for a wireless thermometer to measure the temperature in my dog truck, to make sure dogs don't overheat or get too cold. By and large I am very happy with this item. I noticed one issue, however. Every now and then -- and I have been unable to identify a pattern -- the connection between sensor and base gets dropped. After a few minutes it comes back up again. No real big deal but it keeps me from giving this device five starts.
