I have used other thermometers in the past and I really like this one the best. I really like that you don’t have to turn the light on in the room and wake everyone up to take a temperature. The light is bright enough to read the temperature correctly and it beeps when it is finished reading the temperature. I have always been told to get the most accurate temperature you need to use a rectal thermometer. This is a good thermometer for rectal use for infants and kids. I like that it has a bendable tip not sure why but I like it. I was asked to review this item for a discounted rate for a honest review.
