Wrong picture - these are not the one, they are the round ones. - However potentially still a good price.

Argos doesn't show that picture - how do you know which ones they are?
Only problem with these is that they do not have a LCD screen that notes the level. So if your alarm goes off you don't know if it's a false alarm or not.

I don't think they need LCD. If alarm goes off you know something is not right ;-)
Screen would be better IMO.

You would think, but reviews I read on Amazon of people having false alarms, calling gas companies etc. So I went with one with LCD.
go for LCD one if possible. I had this alarm in my flat and one evening it start beeping after every 30 sec (probably due to low battery). My wife has no clue on whats happening and there was no display to understand whether it is due to CO level or due to low battery. Thanks to google we figured out the real cause.

Its better if LCD tells you that
Just picked mine up and they are the oval ones and not the round
I am so paranoid about carbon monoxide I have two different alarms where our boiler is located! Like fire alarms, it beggars belief that people do not use these. Just as important to make sure your boiler is serviced at regular intervals too.
Most modern boilers are room sealed so if burner doesn't burn properly the CO is expelled through the flue to outside, however CO alarms are very useful if you have a gas or any type of chimney fire and in particular the newer flueless gas fires, those things in my opinion are lethal.

But the alarm will tell you the same as the LCD, won't it?

You need to move them - they should be near the sleeping area, not near the gas appliances.

This makes no sense. They both alarm at the same level.

You need to protect against boilers that haven't been installed properly and CO being induced back into the property as well though.

Though, if you neighbours have a flue near you property, you would also be wise to have one.
Although better than none at all. You really should only be buying ones with a sealed battery which lasts the life of the alarm (7yrs on the decent ones). People can keep replacing the batteries on these long after the sensor reaches the end of its life.

No, I think that it truly taking paranoia to new levels.
The people who have ended up in hospital due to a neighbours faulty appliance wouldn't say that.

And who are these people exactly? Far fewer than the number run over on trips to Argos to buy carbon monoxide detectors I bet!
