What Infrared Digital Thermometer Do You Suggest ?
« on: May 25, 2008, 11:01:15 PM »
I did a quick search on eBay for infrared digital thermometers, and found a bunch of them priced at $45.

They are called "Thermo Tech" but I am going to guess these are prob not the best quality.

Can anyone please steer me in the right direction so I can make an informed choice.

Thanks for any info.

The temp rating for the $45 model is:
Specifications:
Temperature Range: -4 to +986 F. (-20 to +530 C.)
Response Time: 1 Second
Distance spot ratio 8:1
Emissivity: 0.95 Fixed
Large LCD w/ real-time temp & highest temp.

I didn't but this particular thermometer I bought the Extech because I wasn't aware of this one at the time.  I have bought other stuff from their site and have been very happy with their customer service and their products.  Also, my extech only goes up to 1000 degrees, this thermometer goes up to 1832.
It also comes with a probe which I think is pretty cool.  The only downside is that it is pricey.

Works well, have tested it against ice water & boiling water. Very accurate.
