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.

    My son was sent home from daycare with a fever. I was able to quickly take his tempurate as soon as we got home to confirm this and contact our doctors office for their recommendation. The thermomoter was quick, accurate and very useful for me as a first time mom. My son is almost 4 months old and he did not fuss at all when I took his tempurate with this thermometer. Overall, good find!

      This thermometer works quickly and accurately. My only complaint is that my two children (ages 4 and 1) absolutely do not like the feeling of it in their ears. We had a little virus go through our house last weekend so I used this frequently and each time I had to practically hold them down to get the reading correctly. If your kids don't mind the ear reading then this would be perfect. This product was sent to me for free from influenster.

      I received this product free from Influenster in my Braun Vox Box kit. I admit I'm not the most technologically savvy person, and I did have a little trouble in the beginning. The first time I tried it, I wasn't getting the little lines that signal it's ready for use. I understood that I had to have a plastic cover on it, which I did, but it just kept flashing that the cover was not on. After several tries, I finally got it to work. I tried it on my 3 year old's ear and was happy at how quickly it took the temperature. But the first reading was in celsius (I'm much more comfortable with farenheit). Fortunately my hubby figured it out for me and now it works fine. I think one of the drawbacks to this thermometer is that there is a limited supply of plastic covers. I personally wouldn't purchase a thermometer for personal use that I would need to have to purchase additional covers for. So all in all, it's nice to have and I think it's a convenient product, but for the price, I prefer the temple reading thermometer.

        I received this thermometer from Influenster to test and review. I've been meaning to buy some sort of electronic thermometer for awhile now that my 2 older children are too big for a hiney thermometer. I've been relying on a cheap digital multi-use one and using it under the arm. They take soooo long to put out a reading and it's hard to keep a 4 yr old, 2 yr old OR 1 yr old still long enough. This one is SO fast! By the time the kids realize there is something in their ear it is done. The tip shields pop off with the press of a button and I love the protective case. It seems to be very accurate as well. I will never go back to a traditional thermometer!

            I received this product complimentary through Influenster for testing purposes.

            As a first parent, nothing is scarier then a sick baby/child. Up until receiving this product, I had been using a rectalthermometer on my son because it is the most accurate. But now that he is one he tosses and turns and cries which just makes things worse. With this thermometer things are much simpler. It only takes a few seconds, it's not uncomfortable for him, and as a medical student, I know I am getting the second most accurate temperature reading possible. I am in love with this and so glad to have received it!

            I received this free and am doing a review. I have a four year old daughter (five in Oct), so I honestly don't need a thermometer (being she can tell me when she's feeling good or bad). I opened the packaging (nicely done), and opened it swiftly so that I can give it as a gifts for my friends baby shower. It feels like it would be way more comforting that a stick under a baby/childs tongue, armpit etc. Pretty much trying to get your child to remain still while their temp rises to get the exact number. I love the idea, the usage (how easy!!), the feel of it. It's especially perfect for a person with no patience (giggle). Thank you Influenster!!

              This thermometer is every hypochondriac mother's (like myself) dream! It is so quick, literally maybe 5 seconds of holding it in your ear, easy to to use, and it's accurate.

              We were tired of taking our daughter's temperature rectally and she won't sit still for the forehead thermometer we spent way too much money on (which by the way, I can't seem to figure out how to use), so this thermometer is a dream. My daughter thinks it is a toy so she actually lets us use it on her, which makes me laugh considering how much she fights the same exact thing at the pediatrician's office.

              I love that it comes with a holding case and extra filters. I have to say that I am not quite sure what can get passed from ear to ear (filterwise) but it's great to have extra filters on hand.

              Definitely a very helpful tool for parents like myself who have kids in daycare and catch everything going around. Makes life MUCH easier when you are taking temperatures all the time.
