    SLets leave fat guys alone!

    The laser is nothing but a pointer, it points to the general area the infared thermometer is reading. The infared has optics sometimes 4 to 1 or 6 to 1. This owuld mean if you are 4" from the surface it is reading the average temperature of a 1" circle. Hardly accurate to say the least. If you point the sensor much closer the laser is missing the target where the reading is taking place.

    Use it as a chock block

    Exactly they are junk. Great to play with your cat or dog but leave it at your house when you head to work.

    Not true. The point and click thermometer is great for measuring temps that don't have to be precise(not S/C, S/H). These thermometers measure surface temperature. The farther away you are, the wider area the thermometer is reading. Great to check if a register is working on a high ceiling, as stated. Also breakers, coil temps,etc. No they're not super accurate, but to say they're worthless is BS. If you know what you're doing, they're a time saver and handy.
    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.

    It is a very useful tool. Like any tool you have to buy one of quality, know how to use it, and what it's limitations are. Otherwise get the cat.
