I was skeptical about using this product when I received it as a gift since I heard the ear thermometers were not very accurate. However, we have used this thermometer on both of our children for 5 years and we find it is accurate.
After all this time, it still works great and is easy to use. By adding one degree to the reading, the reading is right on point. My husband and I use it for ourselves, too. For kids, it definitely beats putting a thermometer under the arm or in the mouth.

My rating is not for the actual thermometer you get when you buy this item, the Thermoscan 3, which is not pictured. The item pictured as of this rating is the Thermoscan 5 which is [$]. So if you are bying this item, beware that it is not the item pictured. I was very annoyed by the misleading photo.So how would you know which thermometer you are getting? Look up the details and search for the UPC and you will find online photos of the actual item. It is a lower end version of the one pictured.

      Complete junk. Not accurate, hard to administer, half the time it just reads Error. Reads 93.4 or 94.5 every single time. Horrible product. Never had a bad experience with Braun until now.

          Comments about Braun 1002446 Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer:

          I sent my husband to buy this thermometer after both our regular and ear ones broke. I had a friend tell me about this one and said that her son doesn't fight getting his temp taken with this one, and she was right. My son hated the ear one and the regular one wasn't fun for either of us. This one is easy to use, fast, and allows you to save the previous temps you took. It also has a sound control on it so if you child is sleeping and you want to take a temp you can turn the sound all the way down, and the light on it isn't to bright but very easy to read. I should haven gotten this one from the start. I even use it on myself and my husband. Worth every penny.

                Comments about Braun 1002446 Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer:

                I bought this a few months back from the local baby store after dropping our good thermometer in some water and murdered it. Braun was always a great brand to us so I thought this would be another great product. I couldn't be more disappointed. My family has whatever "junk" is going around with the coughing, fever, etc and with my 11 month old son I could tell he had a fever, but I of course wanted to check it. This kept reading 97.1 on him. So I tested it on my husband and myself we kept getting readings bouncing between 97.1-97.5 - this is how it read for me, my husband and the 11 month old baby. I could feel my son was burning up and went out and bought a NEW thermometer (again) and found out my son was running 100 degree fever! I couldn't be more disappointed. Not to mention it does take several seconds to get a reading - not the 1 second it claims. I wish I had the box and receipt still to return it! Unfortunately I tossed it all after "testing" that it worked when I first bought it and tossed it all.

                  I bought this because I thought it would make taking my sons temperature easier. He had his first cold since the purchase and I must say I could not be more disappointed. When you are trusting a product to take your childs temperature that product should be trustworthy. This thermometer was off by an entire degree, which is a huge deal when you are talking 102 (tylenol) and 103 (hospital). I really wish I kept the box!!

                      Love this thermometer. In regards to some of the neutral or negative reviews: This thermometer is very easy to use - yes, you might have to read the directions, but wouldn't you want to take 5 minutes in order to make sure you are getting an accurate reading? It is VERY fast - faster than I would have thought and faster than oral thermometers I've used. It is accurate. You may get a different reading if you take a temp. under the arm, which is inaccurate and requires that you add degrees in order to get a true reading, or rectally as this is the most accurate reading you can obtain if you are able to get it. When I did it against an oral thermometer, I got the same exact reading. No complaints and I'd recommend this thermometer to others.

                        I was under the impression that it would be great to have with a new born but in reality it was not that great at all. It would not gauge temps right and I felt like I had to try and shove it down in the baby s ear. This is probably a better product for older children but not for babies.
