I get a temperature variation of 5 degrees when doing successive readings.

Don't waste your money on this one - go with BD or another tried and true medical brand.
Buck Bannister
Probably would be better if it took a AAA battery and had to be held for 12 seconds.

I bought this in anticipation of a liver transplant. I knew I would have to take my temp several times a day in the weeks after the surgery. Unfortunately, this thermometer was horribly inaccurate. I could take my temperature one time and I would show that I was running a fever. I could reset it and take the temperature again and it would show that it was below normal. The fluctuation could be as much as 2 to 3 degrees at time. I even checked it against the thermometers used in the hospital and it was always off by at least 1 degree.

Very inaccurate and potentially dangerous. Don't waste your money on this one - go with BD or another tried and true medical brand. Timex needs to stick to watches.

I work in the Veterinary profession and this is the best thermometer ever! It is the fastest thermometer that I have ever found which really comes in handy for our patients. It makes things much easier on everyone involved. Fast and accurate, what more would one ask for???

It's fast, convenient, and fairly accurate. It gives a reading in under 10 seconds. I would have given it 5 stars but it isn't 100% accurate. I took different readings only seconds apart it and it gave me three different temperatures, although they were only .2 degrees away. A mercury thermometer always gives the same reading if taken at the same time.

Fast - grade A

Convenience - grade A

Accuracey - grade B

I bought one of these thermometers back in 2007. It worked GREAT and never had any deviations when testing multiple times. It was accurate with the old fashioned mercury thermometer. Only problem is, my wife used it on the CAT and you know where that ended up. I was fortunate to find it again on AMAZON and hope it is as good and accurate as the first one. I just can't use it after the cat had it up it's patooty. Don't worry. I will be sure to mark them appropriately so I don't accidentally use the cats thermometer. :)

I absolutely love this thermometer! I actually bought it at big lots, but I have been telling everyone how fast it is and how well it works. In fact I have put it on my baby registry so that I can have another one for the baby as well.

When it works, it does work quickly and is reasonably accurate. However, I have been through 4 of these. Once, the display showed an error. The other 3 times the button stopped pushing in. It is like the red dot became flat and there is no longer a button to push. I have purchased 2 of these and the last 2 times I contacted the company and they did replace it for free. Of course, my 4th one now is not working so I need to find a more durable thermometer.

We actually bought this when I came down with the flu and no longer had the patience for a regular glass oral thermometer. It worked once, taking about 15 seconds to come up with a fairly accurate temperature. Then it sat for about four months and the next time we tried to use it, it would not register anything but "Low." If the battery is only going to last a couple of months, then although it isn't terribly expensive, it isn't worth what little we paid. Probably would be better if it took a AAA battery and had to be held for 12 seconds.
