TOTALLY INACCURATE TEMPERATURE READINGS 4/10/2015
Reviewer: Camilo Quelquejeu
I purchased Six ( 6 ) Marine versions of the SYBON Digital Thermometers, and to check their accuracy placed all of them in the same tank. UnBelievable ! Would you believe that I received six totally different readings ? And some of them were as far as eight degrees apart. Apparently Digital does not guarantee accuracy ? And on top of this , totally dependent on a battery, that will die immediately if it gets as much as a drop of Salt Water. Better to go back to your J&R Magnetic Thermometers.
Pathetic excuse for a thermometer!! 2/18/2015

Started to give false readings after 3 weeks of use! Absolute junk!
Reviewer: not happy
I bought 2 of these. The first stopped working in a month changed batteries and it still didn't work. The second workid for about 2 months and then started reading over 10 degrees difference.

So good. Both appear to be working and relatively accurate.
Purchased 12/19/2012 Worked fine till Eight months later changed the batteries still gives false readings! One day could be 76 next day 74 next day 78. Bought it because it was a scientific thermometer? Their phone number on package is a car dealership in Maryland!
Not so good 6/17/2013
