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.

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.
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.

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.
