Braun Thermoscan Ear Thermometer - White and Green is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this thermometer! We got this thermometer as a gift from my mom. It was easy to use, however, it was completely inaccurate. My 10 month was burning up, but when I took his temperature it read 100 degrees. When we went to the emergency room an hour later, they said his temperature was 104.2 degrees. We instantly upgraded to a higher quality, pediatrician recommended thermometer. I compared this thermometer to the new one, and it was still 4 degrees lower than my baby's actual temperature. I never write product reviews, but I want to warn future mom's about this thermometer. This thermometer is inaccurate and certainly not worth the money. Invest in a high quality thermometer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible It never has worked for my son who is almost 3. I bought it when he was about a year old. I just end up using the reliable cheap one

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WASTE OF LIFE this thing sucks!!!!!! complete waste of money! one, it hardly ever works and two, if it does its not accurate at all! I've used it on myself and my husband and can sometime get a reading and on my son it just won't work! The phrase if it ain't broke don't fix it applies here...stick with the good old under the tongue or under the armpit thermometer!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea but not worth it If I take a reading of myself three times in five minutes I will get substantially different results, this was given to me as a gift when my daughter was born 3 years ago....and her ears are still not big enough to use it for a guesstimated temperature. I'd say just don't bother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for better. This is the most reliable tempanic I've ever used. It's comparable to hospital grade equipment I use in the Emergency Room and it's just as accurate if not better. Given it's tempanic, so the temperature reading is probably going to be about 1-2 degrees lower than the actual core temperature attained through a rectal temperature but it's pretty close. And it's rugged too. I work as a paramedic and I always keep one handy in my jump kit for just in cases. The only complaint is that the probe diameter is a little on the big side so doesn't work quite well on infants with smaller diameter ear passages. But I would highly recommend it for anyone from toddlers to adults. I've had this thing for about 3 years and it's still going good. As a matter of fact, my wife (an RN) and I liked it so much that we bought one for personal use. We have 1 toddler and a teen in our household and it served it's purpose this season when we all got the flu.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great.. Better For Older Children. I've had this since my daughter was an infant. I have to say that now that she is older it works better and seems to be more accurate. I think it has to do with fitting into the child's ear canal better as they grow. When she was a baby I too deemed it unreliable. Now I can't imagine being without it. The whole family uses it, it's very quick. You will take your temperature a lot more often if you have one. I love it.. but I agree with the mothers of infants, I didn't love it when my daughter was smaller.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HATE IT I got this as a shower gift and I hate it. So my little boy (5months). It seems like it's uncomfortable for him when I try to stick it in his ear. Also, the lens filters get expensive after a while. I am using a maintenance-free kind of "temple" thermometer instead that I love because i use it and my son doesn't even feel it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not acurate I've been using this thermometer for 8 months on my infant and it is not acurate at all. It is always 3 to 4 degrees lower then my digital or "old fashioned" way of taking her temperature. It is quick but not worth the money if you need an acurate temperature!
