Style Name: Visual IR Thermometer
I've had this tool for about three months now. I originally purchased it for use in the automotive field, which has been my trade probably for more years than many of you have been alive. I'm sure most of you have used the basic handheld infra red thermometers that are out there on the market and found them to be pretty useful. All I can tell you is, when you use this tool for the first time, it'll put a smile on your face, from ear to ear. Seriously. It's like being able to see for the first time. The amount of info you can get from one image is amazing. Say for example, you suspect a radiator for an overheating problem. The old way you had to point at every square inch of the radiator and either write down all of the recordings or try and develop a mental picture of the hot or cold spots. With the VT02 I just take one snap shot and I'm done, saving a lot of time. And it's not just a time saver. It's hard to explain. You just start seeing things differently. I have information I never had access to before, but it was there all along. You start seeing different ways of diagnosing problems.
It also helps with sales. Ever had a car with a binding caliper? You try and sell the customer the full pop, right? Calipers, rotors, pads but they think you're scamming them and say, "Just do the pads..." Take a shot of both right and left calipers, and even a FEW degrees difference between calipers is noticeable. It's no longer the mechanic's opinion, it's hard data that you can print out or save as a .jpg file (it comes with software for reports and stuff) and show the customer. It's now in the customer's lap to make the common since decision to make the safe choice.
It's great for looking at A/C stuff, heater core inlet and outlet temps for checking for plugged heater cores.

Style Name: IR Thermometer with Rechargeable Battery Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a very useful tool. It doesn't do much but what it does it does well. If you have a need for a small handheld thermal IR imager, check this out.

The VT04 comes in a small plastic case with molded padding on the inside. In the case is the VT04 itself, a micro USB cable, a USB charger with plug adapters for use in various countries, a memory card (4 GB), two CDs and some quick-start guides. The VT04 I received has a lanyard attached, but the Fluke website says they will no longer be including lanyards in order to "keep costs down". The CD's contain the manuals and the SmartView software, used for compiling the IR images into reports and exporting them.

The product itself seems to be very well built--it's not a toy, by any means. Fluke generally makes very good products, and this is no exception. It's not something you'll be able to knock around (why would you want to?) but I think it'll hold up to regular use. There is no cap for the VT04 lenses, so you'll need to make sure you keep them free from dust and scratches. The promotional material says the VT04 is small enough to fit in your pocket. It probably is if you're wearing work coveralls, but without any sort of protective lens cap I don't know why you'd want to put it in there.

The SmartView software installed easily enough. It's only available for Windows, however, so if you have a Mac or Linux you're out of luck for now. On installing there was an update available, which installed with no difficulties. SmartView is the software used to load VT04 images and either export them or compile them into a report. Templates for Microsoft Word are included, and SmartView will generate a report for you, leaving you to fill in the details and comments for each image.

Style Name: Visual IR Thermometer
The VT02 has very low resolution on the thermal layer compared to other low end thermal imagers (e.g. Flir I3). No surprise Fluke does not disclose the resolution as it does with its other imagers (an educated guess suggests 16x16, but there is not confirmation from the company). If you consider to buy this product, make sure to watch this eevblog video first http://youtu.be/eHRyQtqg2SE

Edit (June 2014): I ended up getting a FLIR E4 about 6 months ago and am very happy with it. Make sure to check that ginormous thread on eevblog forums with excellent information about the E4. I implemented a few of the mods suggested there (some may be software version specific) and now having even better image quality and a 3D printed tool to focus a few inches away, inspecting PCB's.

Edit (October 2014): Flir came out with their TG165 which has a low end thermal camera and an IR thermometer and is in the price range of the VT02. You can see it starting at the 1 minute mark in this video http://youtu.be/oJbgcbedHhI including direct comparison with VT02. The VT02 is clearly inferior.

(I have no connection to Flir, Fluke or to the thermal imaging industry in general, I am just a user).

Style Name: IR Thermometer with PyroBlen Plus Verified Purchase
As with other Fluke instruments the VT04A has a very intuitive interface and came with a pictorial user guide, which is all most users need to use the product. For those who want more they can download a 40 page user manual from the Fluke website, which is what I did BEFORE I purchased the VT04A.

The VT04A has a 240 x 320 pixel color display that automatically adjusts to the temperature range of what the instrument is pointed at. This allows looking at scenes of various temperatures and seeing the temperature differences spread across the full range of colors without needing to change settings. The temperature seen in the bracketed area of the screen is displayed at the top and is saved as part of the image when the trigger is pressed. I changed the setting to save images to bitmap (BMP) format and found I could easily transfer them to my PC and work with them just like any other image.

Pointing the VT04A at a door leading to my cold garage I could see the internal frame of the door as the wood is a poor insulator compared to the foam core of the door. Touch the surface of some room temperature object for a few seconds and you can see your hand print on that surface from the heat that was transferred. Walk into a room and you can see where people or pets have been sitting after they left the area. I walked around the house and found lots of devices plugged in due the heat they produce, and some devices I didn't expect were using power such as a surge suppressor with nothing turned on.

Overall the VT04A is a fantastic instrument that I'm finding more and more uses for in my work, and given the reliability and ruggedness Fluke builds into all their instruments, I expect many years of service.
