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.

    Comments about Braun 1002446 Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer:

    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!!

        Comments about Braun 1002446 Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer:

        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.

                      I've tested this product on myself, and it appears to be fairly accurate. Although it is physically easy to use, it gets a little hairy when it comes to finding the actual reading. It's based off of "beeps." But unless you actually read the directions, there are a few different "beeps" to listen for. It's not as easy as just placing it into the ear, although, I know for a fact that it could be... The bottom line is that is does appear to be accurate and that is key!

                      Easy to use ear thermometer. My 1 year old son definitely prefers the ear thermometer compared to having his r_ctal temperature. It detects temperatures quickly. Only thing I don't like about this product is that you have to use a probe every time, I find it too much of a hassle, since my son is the only one who uses it. It's much more convenient to use rather than an auxiliary thermometer.

                          This is by far the worst thermometer I've ever used. The store has this listed as the number 1 ear thermometer, but it certainly isn't the number 1 in accuracy. I have read and followed the instructions multiple times to make certain I'm using it properly, but I can take multiples readings in a row and get temperatures several degrees from each other. When I test with a thermometer under the arm, it's never even close to the same temperature. I've used this on my 2 year old since he was a baby and it has never worked properly. Don't waste your money!
