Customer Reviews

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not bad for the price Good IRT meter for the price, would of like to be able to change the emissivity value but I like exact values. Very good to give your self a quick reference. With the huge range light on top that quickly tells you, red hotter than reference, green at reference and blue below reference, you can give it to someone to use as a go no go gauge. Would also like to be able to turn off the alert sound, things you pay for when you buy the higher priced ones. August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Works as advertised. The star pattern of the laser is helpful. Nice larger display November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great ir thermometer I am by no means good with tools, but this thermometer is great! Easy to use accurate and quick to understand. Handy gauge on the side as a reminder to see the area being read to the distance away. Definitely recommend. February 19, 2013
