Q: any difference between this one and Braun ThermoScan 5?

I don’t know how it can consistently be user error but the forehead thermometers never worked for us very long. This actually works, and well. Very easy to use; so relieved to finally have one that works.

TShock - 1 month ago
Wildly inaccurate, as others have stated, it gives you vastly different readings every time. We have another Braun that works well, but it’s about 11 years old, so I thought it’d be good to get a newer model, however the old one is much more consistent with readings. I am definitely disappointed and taking it back.

Very inconsistent readings, noticed that they tend to be higher than the actual temperature. Also, having to buy the plastic tips is not environmentally friendly.

We just bought this. It works fast and seems to be accurate. My toddler hates the under arm thermometers and the forehead ones aren’t accurate enough.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this from Influenster. It’s lightweight and so easy to use. I can’t comment on how it works for a fever since nobody in our home has been sick recently. I tried it once to test and I definitely prefer using this ear thermometer over the other types.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My oldest is in middle school, and I have been using Braun since he was a baby. Braun is a reliable thermometer that is easy to use. This thermometer is no different. The screen is large and easy to read. Most importantly, it’s accurate and I trust what it says. That is the most important thing to me as a mom about a thermometer.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We love this thermometer. It’s easy to use and gives a reading really quickly. Compared to our other thermometers it is relatively accurate. I do think that sometimes ear readings are slightly higher and Google confirms this. It will only work with a cover over the end, so be sure you have some on hand. The thermometer does include extras to get you started.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I always enjoyed having this thermometer in the medicine cabinet for babies and littles who can’t keep a thermometer in their mouth. And I am not a fan of putting it in babies bum either. This one is simple and easy to use.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Braun thermometer is good to have around the house. I have kids that get sick from time to time, and sometimes it's hard to tell how high their fever is. This thermometer has accurate reading and almost instant results. It comes with some disposable lens filters and a protective case. I would recommend it to use it on any kids or adults.
