Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The 8580 model is a good item- it seems to be as accurate as advertised, and the dual laser is helpful in knowing the ideal distance to read temperatures. It boots up and reads quickly and shuts down automatically after being idle for about 15 seconds. The instructions weren't very helpful in figuring out how to switch to Fahrenheit (I think I held the Mode button to switch it). I also had to force the 9-Volt battery into the handle since one of the braces that hold it in is too narrow- it ended up deforming the battery, but it certainly isn't going anywhere.
I chose a 4 rating because I don't see many of ANYTHING as being "perfect". But this T-meter is EXCELLENT for the things I use it for. Mostly I use it for air-conditioning service work; and it is close enough to allow me to make accurate judgment calls, and gives me a very quick, clear reading! It took me one month to use up the factory battery's life; I use it probably 2-4 hours daily! I will see how long a different brand of cheap 9V battery works. For what I do, I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone! It's easy to use, lightweight and quick-to-reading!
In spite of some worrisome negative reviews, I decided to try this IR thermometer. There are others with different brand names that look physically and functionally identical in roughly the same price range. They are probably made by the same Chinese Mfr. with perhaps some QC tolerance differences. I am pleased with this product as it does pretty much what was promised. While I can't vouch for this unit's precision, I can say that it is as accurate as the other thermometers I own, but much faster and easier to use.
