    We had had it but needed to return it as it was faulty. Not impressed by it :(

    Possible to include a little more detail? for £2.50 it has to be worth a try....

    I've used it twice today and had no issues with it so far.

    forehead ones are cheaper and much more accurate!! save your money. If you reasearch it you will see, which leads me to wonder why we still use them at work!!

    Forehead ones are more accurate? News to me...

    Every parent i have spoken to has said one of these was probably the best money they had spent....

    Also its £2.50...most people spend more than that on lunch lol.

    I haven't found any research that suggests forehead thermometers are more accurate. On the contrary...

    well rectal ones are priven to be the most accurate, but I don't think everyone will want to do it that way!
    The in ear ones can differ vastly to the actual temperature of someone, so with that in mind I always use a forhead one or oral one which is another good way.

    The one thats really good it that infrared one that literally scans your child forehead.
    I think alot of mesical people are either for or againts the in ear ones, but for me even when I use them at work I get massive differences in reading so always resort to oral or forhead.
    Have a mooch around if it interests you Its good to know!

    If forehead ones are more accurate than tympanic ones, that must be why healthcare professionals use them in hospitals and on ambulances... oh wait, they don't! :)

    Absolutely, I'm sure you cannot buy alot for that. I'm not digging on your post, I'm just telling your osmething you may not know. The iun ear ones are not proven to be very accurate. I'm only saying this because I had to do a paper on it at uni, and its a very controvesial subject. For me it would be oral or the forehead ones all the way and I though peope may like to check.
    At the end of the day, we still use them in the NHS so they cannot be that bad lol. I just worry if its a few decimals between fever or not and it was inaccurate. For that reason I wouldn't use one with my children. It is a good buy, I'm not saying that.

    Ah, not arguing with you!!! Ha ha, go on the ineternet.... read some genuine for and against rather than coming out with an obvious statement. Yes they use them... no s**t sherlock. I am aware of that.
    I'm not going to keep my mouth shut about something that ishad actually been researched because you dont agree.

    Anyway, if people want to check it out then they will.
    I am quite within my rights to let people know that they are actually not very accurate!

    I did research it. I found a 5 year old paper stating that forehead thermometers aren't as accurate as previously thought. See comment #12

    Absolutely....but by the same rules people are allowed to respond :)

    You clearly have some facts so ill go away and do some research. This will be a half decent indication of a fever for £2.50 i think. I think most parents wouldn't solely rely on this anyway and would visit the doctor if they are worried or if the child had other symptoms.
    cloudbusting
    lol, of course.
    It is very controvesial as I said, but I do agree with you, if you were concerned you would take then anyway.
    Thats it for me anyway- I'm out now as it can get quite nasty sometimes on here when you have opinion lol.
    Seabrie that paper sounds quite outdated- basically from what I have read the best one in rectal. That would be the 'gold standard; we are meant to use.
    Good luck all and enjoy you new bargain!!
