I purchased several of these thermometers to replace some digital thermometers that I have been using. The digitals were giving inconsistent readings even with new batteries. Across all four there was no agreement as to the water temperature in the same tank. The variance in readings ranged from 2 degrees F to as much as 11 degrees F! The glass floating thermometers, on the other hand, have proved to be much more reliable and consistent.
The numbers on this thermometer are very easy to read. Great price! I bought extras since I tend to drop them! The suction cup has a strong funky smell to it. I'll let it air out, if it doesn't get better after a few days, I either will use an old one or just let this float about the tank.
It's inexpensive and does what it is supposed to. I don't know exactly how accurate it is, but comparing it to the sticker one I have, they read the same.
Showed up broken, back packaging!
