Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DEstefan Great for DIY
This laser temp-gun works up to 350C / 662F,which is more then plenty for most DIY projects. Milwaukee also has other temp-guns with higher temp ranges, but they have a higher price tag too.
The device has many functions, including alarms, which can be helpful for certain projects.
It seems a little on the heavier side, but most people won't use it for hours, so that's not a big deal.
Overall a good product and a good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neelam Works very well
This gun is pretty accurate within a degree or two range. I’ve compared its readings with another gun I have and with my home thermostat. The results were very satisfying. The distance to spot ratio is 10:1, that’s mean for every 10 feet, it will use the average temperature within 1 foot range of the object you are measuring.
The operation is very simple, just press the trigger and it displays the temperature on the LCD.
The LCD’s contrast is Sky Blue background with Navy Blue text color and is very easy to read in day light and low light. When trigger is released, the LCD turns off automatically after 6 seconds.
I like the alarm feature where the gun start beeping & flashing the text if the temperature it’s gauging is out of Low/Hi temperature setting. It’s very handy feature that can be configured based on the trade or task at hand.
What I didn’t like is the placement of button that switches between Celsius and Fahrenheit. First, it’s in the battery compartment and 2nd the button is hard to reach. I use a key or small screw driver to change it.
It comes with 3 AA batteries pre-installed so it’s ready to operate out of the box. To change the low/high temperature for the alarm, here are the steps:
1. To set the alarm range, press the trigger and then press the Alarm button. Repeat to toggle between LO and HI settings.
2. Pull the trigger to increase the values, press the Alarm button to decrease the values. Wait 3 seconds for the ranges to save and exit.
Overall it’s a great gun and great addition to my toolbox.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by projectdoneyes Endless Temperature reading aplications
This Milwaukee infrared laser temperature gun works awesome. It does have a reading field at various distances but it comes with a chart to help eliminate misreadings. The temp gun takes standard AA batteries. A really good use for this temp is to check frozen and refrigerated product coming in from suppliers or vendors. With the costs of food and reputation of your business this Milwaukee temp could pay for itself in one delivery. Even checking things like steam table temperature is simple. Working at a senior center we have to take multiple readings throughout the day and record them. Milwaukee is helping make our job easier and keeping our clients safer.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AverageDude GOOD, but not great
I love almost everything made by Milwaukee. This temp gun fits good in the hand, but it is a little heavier than another brand temperature gun that I have. Accuracy is good. After I bought this, I noticed that they make a version of this that runs on the M12 battery system. I think it would be nice to have rechargeable batteries. I feel like this gun is just average. Since it is average, it is a little over priced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hootbro Easy to use and rugged
Very simple and easy to use laser temp gun. Case is rugged and very ergonomic in hand. Has nice feature of setting an "alarm" temperature if needed.
