Great Product

We just started using the Braun ThermoScan 5 IRT-4520 and we think its a great product to use with our baby.  We have purchased other Braun products in the past.

Works Great

Used the thermometer on my son and got an accurate reading in 3 seconds.  Wonderful product.

Feedback

Please make your model number printing on the thermometer larger for us senior citizens!  :-)).  Also, regarding your request for the date or lot code, you need to provide a "?" pop-up, explaining the format of the code and its location.  I guessed what number on the box is the date code (but I'm not certain that I am right).

  Thank You,

Richard Kennard

Disappointed

I was excited to finally purchase a Braun ThermoScan.  It worked wonderfully the few times I was able to use it on my 9 year old son, but it stopped working after only a month of having it.

So far so good!

The Braun ThermoScan 5 had the best ratings of all the thermometers that I looked at so I decided that I would make the purchase. I like that it comes with everything you need, ie. the storage case and probe/lens covers. I just took it out of the box maybe 10 minutes ago and tried it on my 7 year old. It was quick and painless. As long as you read the instructions it is easy to operate! I highly recommend!

Quit working after 1 month

This is our second time purchasing this product. The first one lasted 4+ years, and then quit working. I purchased our second one about a month ago, and went to take my daughters temperature tonight, and it won't turn on. I tried replacing the batteries, and it still will not work. Very disappointed, especially for the cost, and the fact that it is non working after so little time.

Please let me know since iti s winder season and I need to check Temp frequantly.

Best thermometer ever

I got this thermometer for my baby shower over 9 years ago.  My son was sick several times with fevers a dear infections the first year of his life, so this quickly became a fixture in my diaper bag.  I never left home without it.   It is very easy, convenient, and accurate.  It lasted all of these years and finally broke.  It was a no brainier when purchasing a new one.  It is hands down the best thermometer!

Comment on this review


Great product

We've been considering buying one of these for a couple of years, then received one as a gift. Our son has been sick and was not willing to let us take his temperature any other way, but was willing to let us take it with the ear thermometer. Great product.

Second time buyer

This is the second unit I have bought.  The first one was for my daughter to use for herself and her daughter.  We've had no complaints.  I like the fact that is uses AA batteries which are readily available.

braun thermoscan

I love the Braun Thermoscan IRT 4520. It is so easy to use. It's especially easy to use with children.  I am 50 and it is so much easier to use and accurate than any other thermometers I have ever used.  I would recommend it to anyone.  It makes life so much easier when there is any member in the family running a temp.  Thank You Braun for producing such a well made and easy to use thermoscan.

We prefer the ear style over the rest, thanks

FInally found it!

So happy CVS started carrying these thermometers - they're a bit pricy, but apparently the only thing that works - and I've spent far more than $50 or so on buying so MANY different thermometers, searching in vain for one that works!

I had this thermometer that I purchased on 2004 and had to throw it out today!!! lasted me all this years!! so went ahead and bought a new one now!!! Hope it lasts the same !!!:)

Comment on this review


I love this!!!

This is about my 4th Thermoscan!!!! over the last 15 years

Comment on this review


Works good

This thermometer works much quicker than the style we used to use which goes under your tongue.  I really like the ease of use and that it gives you a digital reading down to the 1/10 degree.  I would definitely recommend this ear thermometer to anyone who needs a fast and accurate temperature measurement.

Mark

I purchased our Braun Themoscan 5 today.  Once I read through the instruction manuel it was very simple to use the thermometer.  The hardest part was trying to find out how to register it on your web site.  You should have a tab at the top of your web site front page saying register new products.

Accurate and easy

This is the 2nd Thermoscan we have owned.  The first gave out after about 6 years.  This one is fast, easy and accurate!! No more guessing if it is accurate!!

Comment on this review


Fast and fantastic

I love it. A similar model by a different maker previously purchased in our home wasn't at all accurate, and when a degree higher or lower can mean the difference between needing to call the doctor and not, I needed something that worked. I bought this after scanning it with my smartphone app to compare prices to other retailers and reading a few reviews. It did not disappoint. It is quick, easy, and accurate. Just make sure you use it properly to get a good measurement. The instructions included are nice and clear about that. Highly recommended!

Comment on this review


The most accurate

Someone gave me a Braun ear thermometer when I had my first child. 3 years later it got broken. When I had my second child I tried all kinds of other thermometers. I hated them. When I had my third child I went back to what I love. The Braun ThermoScan. I've used it ever since. All 4 of my kids, my husband and I all love it. It's fast and accurate and easy to use.

I don't use the product myself but I order it for the nurses and I haven't heard any complaints about the product.

Sleek, Compact Design

Previously owned a Braun ear thermometer which lasted more than 15 years.  Purchased the Braun ThermoScan 5 and really like design; more compact.  We like the pre-warmed tip technology and the improved angle and positioning.  Have only used it once so far, but very pleased with it.  Hoping this one lasts as long as the previous one.

Comment on this review


I have use ThermoScans since 1994

I have used the ThermoScans since my oldest was a baby. He will be 17 in August this year (2011). I have five children. Through the years I have own about five of them. The eventually wear out, unfortunately, but each have lasted long enough for me to have built up trust in the product. I have found them to be very accurate. The best one I had, had a back-light for night time reads. I hope that the makers will again put back-ilghts back into the ThermoScan models, that is the one feature that I miss.

Comment on this review


Best one I have had

I have a 2 year old that has been sick what seems like once a month for this best year. This thermometer makes the fourth one I have tried, the second ear specific temparture reading scan, and it is the one I like most using on him. It is very easy to use and gives a temp virtually immediate. I like it alot and would recommend it to others.

Comment on this review


Good, but the stand is silly

The thermometer definitely lives up to its billing, but it seems silly that the stand/case for it only lies flat/horizontally.  The design should have been made such that it can stand up for better storage.  Very silly to not have this.
