I have been using this device for some time now and discovered it to be a very useful product. The device appears to be well made. It registered UV rays from low to very high. It rates how long it will take to give you sunburn depending on your skin type and what power of sunblock you put on to protect yourself.

It helped with skin protection from the sun and its harmful UV rays which can cause premature aging, winkled skin and cancer. Sad but healthy golden tan don't help you in the long run. I supposed this device would be helpful toward people with pale milky skin then with those of darker complexion. But people of all colors suffered from sunburns and its painful consequences. It also helpful when you should reapplied your sunblock again. While not truely exact because sunblock wear off due to sweat and water, it will give a good estimate for you common sense to kick in.

Overall, an useful device for those who are careful about their skin and aware of the harmful UV rays that can caused damage to it.

I bought this because of my skin type (I don't tan, I burn) and our vacation destination (Arizona) - the two were NOT compatible!

I arrived un-burnt and, thanks to this clever little device, I LEFT un-burnt!

Works easily, and well. The printed instructions are decent enough.

The strap is long enough to secure the device to your bag, or yourself.

This is a great little anti-sunburn device. Thank you!

I am a big solar watcher of the sun and uv. This device is right on the mark as I have a separate weather station with it's own UV meter. This is great for when I am gardening in the yard. A person knows when that sun is really strong - but you really don't know how bad it is until you press that button and hold it toward the sun. Today I registered, for the first time, a 13. EXTREME. I did not go out to pick weeds because it's not worth the risk for skin cancer. People aren't aware of how much they should be outside, in the pool, etc. on a sunny day. Everyone, especially someone with children who think they can swim for hours should get one and follow it's recommendations for a safe time of exposure.

This item is very useful for determining your burn time in the sun dependant on your skin type. It is relatively simple to set up for an individual user.
Totally worthwhile if you are a person who works outside on a daily basis

We needed this instrument to measure UV rays for a science project. First of all it arrived rather fast. The instrument itself was very easy to use. It was light in weight and had a cute strap to attach to my wrist or handbag. It also had all the information that I needed to record for the science project. I was able to measure the time, SPF which was set to the skin tone, the index and the conditions a of weather as well as temp. The project was really for my 11 year old which was also great and simple for her use. The price was also reasonable since they can be very expensive. Definitely a recommendation.

I bought this to calibrate relative Ultraviolet Screen printing paper exposure levels when using the sun outdoors and UV lights in the indoor exposure unit indoors. It works well enought for those things. I keep it in the car now and use it primarily as a thermometer.

Pros:
-I am pleased with the build quality: It's made with very good components that feel strong and solid in your hands.
-It's small. I for some reason imagined this to be twice as large. It's about the size of a large FOB.

Cons:
-Takes up to 10 minutes to adjust to room temperature (as compared to higher quality thermometers I placed it next to. Makes be always doubt whether reading is correct.
-As another reviewer stated, will not pick up any reading whatsever through any kind of glass. Could that be true?
-Lacks a few features that would make this a better and more worthwhile gadget to keep around. Adding a stopwatch would only require a software solution and would be worthwhile addition since this will be useful in sunny weather and track meets, etc and to keep track of my photo exposure times. :)

In all, buy this unit specifically if you want to take it to some outdoor activity and set it to remind you when you're cooked enough with an alarm. May be a good item to give to kids who may not have the experience to tell when they've been in the sun too long.

I bought some years ago the same one but in blue. Some months later segments of the LCD started to fail. The device was siting in a drawer. Then I bought this one because I thought that this problem was corrected but no. Some LCD segments are not working anymore. Also, the screen gets scratched very easily. Not recommended.

I have recently been exploring SUNGAZING and I wanted to be responsible regarding the care of my eyes. This monitor is exceedingly user friendly regarding UV readings with the added plus of giving an estimated time for being safe in the sun light. I also use the time function as I have recently dispensed with wearing a watch on my wrist. I'm interested in temperature as well but only in a casual way. The monitor is a bit slow in terms of adjusting for the temperature, but this might be a good thing in that so many things seem to be moving so fast here in 2011. My primary interest is in acquiring a quick(four seconds) read on UV light and this small unit fits the bill perfectly.
