Summary: Well, will wonders ever cease. Ordered this item and was assigned an expected delivery date of Monday Jan 23. Upon my return home at noon today, I checked the mail, and the Fluk 62 Mini was in the mail box (three days early).....HURRAY. I played with Fluke 62 Mini some, checking the digital thermostat, and other thermometers in and outside the house. I was pleased to see that the Fluke 62 Mini demonstrated they all coincided to each other.
Summary: I tested the temperature measured by this IR thermometer with temperatures measured by a contact thermometer. In all cases, there was agreement between the two. It is high quality and comes with a good case to keep and transport it in. When using it, make sure you learn the relationship between the distance from object being measured and size of measured area (it's covered in the instructions).
Summary: I bought this to see what my floor temps were with radiant heat and locate cool spots that need additional insulation. It works great. very accurate. Just squeeze the trigger and scan to see temp differences around the house. love it.
Summary: I purchased this for use in a computer data center. We've been using it since early 2008 and it works flawlessly. Point and shoot and you get an accurate temperature of the designated spot (noted by red laser dot). Hold down the trigger and the measurements continue. It does what it is supposed to do. The case is plastic and it does feel somewhat cheap in your hand. However, Fluke makes great products in my opinion.
Summary: What a useful tool! I can't say whether more expensive ones are better, or if cheaper ones are just as good, but I can say this one works and does incredibly useful jobs for me all the time. I use it primarily in the kitchen. It tells me the temperature of pans before I put food in. It tells me the temperature of oil before I deep fry. It tells me the temperature of my kids hot chocolate before they complain.
Summary: I bought this to look for insualtion leaks and drafts. It works pretty good for that and I have found a lot of other uses for it as well. The unit is small and easy to use. The hardest part was getting the batteries in it (the battery door is the yellow part of the handle and opens forward, I always seem to think it should be the grey part, and open back).
