    Default Digital Thermometer Reccomendations

    I'm looking to buy a digital thermometer for baby, that you can just point and get a temperature reading (no-touch) and am after recommendations. I'm looking at two Oricom ones but not sure if the $30 price difference is warranted! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1404812236.911836.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1404812243.495722.jpg thoughts?

    I have a ray gun type one - different brand though ( I bought the pharmacy choice brand about $80). You just point the light at their temple & it gives a reading. Bought one for a friend once & she raved about it so got myself one - had a go the other day & it rocks - love how you don't have to touch them to get a temp!

    I have this medescan one. . so not one you are looking at. You don't have to touch the skin.. just aim and a second later temp is done. I bought it a few months back and best ever. It's $$ but totally worth it.

    Completely open to other brands if they're better than the ones I've looked at - they just happened to be at babies r us. Ha ha. What's the difference between the cheaper and more expensive ones?

    We bought a Beurer infrared thermometer from Harvey Norman for work (childcare) and it has been great. it was on special for about $69 and is easy to use, it also measures the ambient temperature and the temperature of a liquid etc.
