Buy one of these and don't look back. Just as good as Thermapen at much better price.

I could write a long review but I figure I'll just give the quick and dirty. I'm a long-time Thermapen owner, so I know and expect more from a thermometer, and this Javelin measures up in every category!!! I got this on a lighting deal as an Xmas gift and my old regret is not buy 4 more of them for others. I did not get a free item to write a review.
I tested this against my 3 year old Thermapen. It not only registered faster, but both read within a tenth of one another for readings, confirming it's accurate. I give bonuses to the backlit display and much lower price point. Add in that is read quicker or just as fast as the industry standard Thermapen, and this thing is a winner in my book. Only advantage to the Thermapen is that it came with a case, but considering the price point, I can live without that little add-on item.
Buy one of these and don't look back. Great deal!!!
