I had this unit and other brands just like it. The other brands cost less, are comparably accurate and can withstand drops of water or even a drop in the tank. This unit isn't worthless by any means but other brands have a better quality at a lower price. That makes it a no brainer for me.
I picked one up for my 65 gallon mbuna and yeah, it seems like it should cost less than the $18 I paid but I tell you what, this is super accurate and gives me peace of mind. I have it mounted on the side so it's so in plain sight but quite easy to read (I do have to press the light to read it; no big deal). A high reccommend.
I have two of them. Works great. Easy to set up. I love this thing. Works in either F* or C*. Much better than the stick on style on the glass, and better than the glass ones.
has used this product for 1-3 Years.

"A very good digital thermometer"
I have one of these on one of my tanks and it works very well. The only complaint I have is it's hard to read from even a short distance. Their Large version is designed for this though, so otherwise it is just fine for my needs.
I've got this, I put the probe into the tank, swing the wire across the back and into the inside of my stand. I mount it there and anytime I want to check temp, I press this button on the device and it lights up showing the temp. I can't ask for more.
