The Easy@Home digital thermometer arrived in a plastic case with an owner manual included. It is lightweight. The waterproof thermometer is super flexible and has a comfortable tip. The read time is good, it took about 15 seconds to read and alert me with an alarm beep to signal it is complete. The thermometer is easy to use. A large screen and and readable numbers. There is a set of colored LED lights (red, yellow and green) that allow a quick read of the temperature range. I think this is best suited for children and adults or as a rectal thermometer for infants.
