Just switched from a common oral thermometer to the Easy at home Early Thermometer and it's just a great tool to have. It's completely different then the other method, a lot easier and just as accurate. Especially with the younger children, who can't sit still and are just sick. Thermometers are not fun when your sick.
This is a little different from others I have seen because of its stand. When not in use, you can put it in the clear case and it will sit on the counter top or cabinet.
The reading is accurate, i have tired on a high fever but doing daily temp comparison, they are matching basically in the same.
It's a very handy and great for fast and accurate results. There is also a power button when your done using it.
