The Thermoscan is so fast, I originally was sceptical of the accuracy of the reading. However it was delivering consistent readings so it seemed pretty reliable. Then I confirmed with an Oral thermometer and came away with the same temperature so not only is it reliable it's also accurate. Eventhough ,our kids don't like anything in their ear, it's so fast that we were still able to get a good reading which was actually confirmed in the hospital during a recent illness.

I bought this based on the outstanding reviews. I will tell you that this product doesn't work half the time. I have to take 2 readings one from each ear and then try to figure out which temp is the correct one. I knew my son had a temp but it was reading 99.4 in one ear and the other ear was reading 101.5 or higher. Alot of times it reads 94.1 for a temp reading. So i can't trust this thing and Im looking for a different one.

    Comments about Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer IRT4520, 1 ea:

    1 - No backlight display. Major drawback! Most times body temperature rises while we sleep and it's impossible to get a reading without any auxiliary light.
    2 - The deviation between readings could be a degree apart. Not very accurate!
    3 - The tip is too wide for infants and even some toddlers.

              I wanted to love this thermometer so much! It's so fast and easy--which makes it simple to see how wildly inaccurate its readings are. I usually take 3 readings because I don't trust the first (which is always the lowest) and there is typically a range of three full degrees. A "normal" reading is always well below 98.6 (and into 95 territory), so I don't trust the thermometer to tell me when we're in dangerously high territory. Get a cheaper more accurate themometer.

                  After purchasing various thermometers that were unreliable, we decided to splurge on this more expensive model. We have been very pleased with the accuracy and ease of use. With two young children in the house, a reliable thermometer is a necessity. While I wish it were less costly, the accuracy is worth every penny.
