Quick, accurate, and easy to use. If used as directed, the quick response this gives is pretty accurate. Especially when your little one is not wanting to be bothered and already scared the response that quickly appears makes it easy to get the temperature check done and over with. Being easy to read with accommodating colors to help you read and understand the temperature.

I love these thermometers. So much faster than the ones under the tongue. With 4 kids I would love to have one of these at home.

I was so excited to receive this product to review from Influenster! This ear thermometer is such an improvement from any we have tried before. It is quick and convenient, especially for night time needs with a toddler and soon, a newborn. I used this on my almost-two-year-old today and she didn't even have time to realize I was taking her temp!

I received this thermometer from Influenster for testing, and I'm really glad I did! I've been needing to get a better one for the kids, and hadn't gotten around to it. It's really easy to use. It gets a reading in about 2 secs so it's not hard to use on a squirmy toddler who hates things in his ears. If I hadn't gotten this in a VoxBox I would buy it myself.

The braun forehead thermometer is a great thermometer. Other ear thermometers I have owned in the past haven't been accurate, which is a hassle when dealing with a sick child. I love that this thermometer came with 20 replacement lens filters. I tried it on both of my children, and the thermometer was able to get their temperatures quickly and accurately! The only really negative is the case that comes with it. It just rest onto the case, which leaves the top of the thermometer exposed, instead of having a case that protects the thermometer well.

This is a must have for baby. Baby temperature need to measure every night and this one is very easy to use. Also fast reading and show the temperature on digital screen. Even I can use it at night time.

We love this thermometer at our house! Our squirmy little one won't hold still for any other kind of temperature taking. It's accurate (we've tested several times right before visiting the doctor to compare), easy, and painless for all parties involved! I'll never use another thermometer again.

Would it be good idea to change the ear liners every time or is it safe to use the same one a few times?
