Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless)

Testing

Testing
 
Scythe state that the Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) has an accuracy tolerance of +/- 2 degrees Celcius, which is a little less accurate than the Kama Thermo at +/- 1 degree Celcius. In order to assess its accuracy, I will be verifying the Kama Thermo (Wireless) temperatures with a digital thermometer and taking a few random temperature readings to see how it performed.
 
The results of my testing has been included below:
 
Temperature measurements
MethodKama Thermo (Wireless)Digital Thermometer
Body Temp36.3 deg C36.9 deg C
Boiled water (left to stand) 63.8 deg C 64.5 deg C
 Oven temperature (90 deg C) 88.6 deg C 89.8 deg C
 Ambient temperature 20.3 deg C 21.2 deg C
 
 
Observations
 
As we can see the Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) handles the temperature testing quite well and all measured temperatures fell within the specified accuracy tolerance of +/- 2 degrees Celcius. Interestingly, for the last test (ambient) the Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) managed to record the ambient temperature when according to Scythe it shouldn't have been able to. Well done Scythe!

Overclock3D get up close and personal with the new Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) infra-red digital thermometer to see how it differs from the original Kama Thermo.

I dont really like the idea that you have to point it at the thing you would like to measure the temperature of. I would still buy the old one over the new one because of three reasons;

- Size.

- Ability to mod it into your case.

- (Probably) More accurate temperature readings.

Good review though, and a good idea of a product. Reps for you!

Yeah I agree. The older wired version had a lot more uses as far as measuring temps within your chassis, and the older Kama Thermo was able to be installed relatively easily. The new wireless version does away with all that and merely becomes a hand held digital thermometer. Thanks for the feedback

Good review mate. I've got an Infrared thermo at home that I paid quite a few quid for but tbh its cr@p. Type of surface and distance from it totally skews the results. Wired ftw!
