I trust this and easy to read By Alexandria on 4/18/2013

Purchased this to use for water changes and as a main thermometer in my tank. (The long cord makes it super easy to move from my tank to the new water.) It matched up with my old thermometer's read out so I trust that it is right. It's nice to have big numbers that are easy to read.
As someone else mentioned a backlight feature that could be turned on or off would be nice.

I had a rash of bad heaters and needed a second probe too confirm accuracy and steady temp. Works perfect.

I wanted a digital thermometer with a nice sized LCD display so that I could quickly glance over and see the temperature, and this works nicely.
Inaccurate +4 degrees By Trevor on 11/25/2012

My thermometer consistently reads 4 degrees higher than my actual water temp. My heaters are set to 78 degrees and I've verified that other thermometers read the temperature at 78. However this JBJ thermometer reads at 82.1.

Does not Last long enough By Alex on 10/16/2012

I think I have been through 5 of these within a few years. I have one that does not work anymore and 2 that are about 10 degrees off. It seems to lose its calibration and there is no way to reset them. I think I will try another brand for my next thermometer. It was great when it work correctly and a good price. I just wish the usable life lasted a little longer.

Great peace of mind for only 10$. This is a great way to double check those sometime troublesome heaters.
Cheap and very useful By Kyle on 5/19/2012

I primarily use this to monitor the temperature in my 90 gallon display tank to make sure that my lights aren't heating up the water too much. It works very well, and for the price I don't think you can beat it. I also pull it out of the DT and use it to check the temperature of my replacement water when doing water changes. It has a great double suction cup mount that allows you to quickly and easily detach the digital readout. I like that a lot because I have it mounted to the back of my tank glass so it's out of sight but I can still detach it and read it with no problem. If you don't have a thermometer yet for your tank, do yourself a favor and pick one of these up.
Basic, effective By Josh on 4/10/2012

I keep one of these in my sump as a check against my controller temp sensors, and have another for mixing water. I'm ordering a third for my QT.
Would only be better with a backlight.
