    I have tried EVERY thermometer from the forehead scanners to the ear canal thermometers, every digital on the market and the good old fashioned "mercury" (for lack of a better term) and I have will recommend this thermometer over any of the others any day. i have a health condition and I have to take my temperature daily. This one gives a quick and accurate read. My daughter loves the 'colors" and the beeping "alerts." I want to try the behind the ear thermometer, but I would like to read more reviews first. i recommend this product highly.

    Drugstore.com's service was good regarding this product. The first one I ordered had a dead battery and wouldn't work. A replacement was sent to me immediately, and the battery in it was also dead. I notified this vendor of the obvious problem with these thermometers and was told their Quality Control Department had been notified. A third one was sent to me, and guess what? The battery in it was dead. Again I was told that QC had been told about the problem. It didn't seem to do much good, however. I wasn't required to return the last two of them, and finally I just asked for a refund. Don't buy these!

      Comments about Vicks Comfort-Flex Thermometer, 1 ea:

      Flexes and is easy for my 5 yr old to use by himself, and I keep a separate one for my infant. Accurate read every time.
      The only brand I trust.
      Super-fast read.
      It turns RED if the fever is high, also the beep gets more rapid.
      IT TELLS YOU IF THE FEVER IS LOW, OR HIGH.
      I love it.

          Comments about Vicks Comfort-Flex Thermometer, 1 ea:

          Horrible product. Back to back reads are not consistent, read times vary greatly, product feels flimsy and horrible in mouth. Do not buy this awful product from Vicks. Vicks should be ashamed to have their name on this.

                    The product did not work. It seems to need a new battery. I would never buy it. Not worth returning. So I am stuck with it.

                                I had purchased this once before - because of its easy read-out display. The battery was dead within days. I hope the same doesn't happen with this one.

                                    Cute thermometer, but just doesn't give you an accurate temp. I bought it for my boyfriend when he was extremely sick with the flu, and it kept giving him the result of 98.1, even though he felt very hot to me and had chills. So I used it on myself to check, and it told me I was running 95.6. Hmm. I'd say it probably gets within 3 degrees of being accurate each time, but what is the point of that when you are just guessing anyway?
