Top critical review

easy to handle. big large display
not accurate. in our experience, it always shows higher reading. Doc also mentioned that this type shows higher reading. Also, the diff in reading is not consistent, therefore we've had to use the traditional thermometer side by side too defeating this one's purpose. Only if we are sure fever is not there and we'd like to double confirm that, we use this IR device only.
Also, after the 2 second timeout, it makes a big beep. if the child is sleeping, there is a chance he/she will wake up due to the beep sounds. This is really bad experience. When fever is there, it beeps TEN times and its loud enough for my child to wake up sometimes. I have no clue why they added this feature... really low thoughtfulness.
despite the cons, i will keep it with me just because it does come in handy some times when my child just doesn't allow us to use the traditional thermometer.
