Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless)


Conclusion Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless)
So how well did the Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) perform in today's review?
 The Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) is undoubtedly well made and solid. The unit itself, although made from plastic, feels as though it will be able to take a few decent knocks from regular wear and tear without giving up the ghost.
I do like the improved portability of the Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) over the older 'wired' Kama Thermo, as it wouldn't look out of place amongst the contents of your pocket (keys etc).
Performance-wise the Kama Thermo (Wireless) performed well and returned acceptable measurements of temperature, even with a stated accuracy of +/- 2 degree Celcius.
Pricing for the Scythe Kama Thermo (Wireless) comes in at US$19.90, which is a little dearer than the original Kama Thermo, but not excessively so in my opinion. I wasn't able to find a supplier for the unit in the UK at the time of review, but this is quite a  new product, so the lack of available e-tailers is understandable.
The Good
* Looks
* Accuracy
* Build quality
* Portability
The Mediocre
* USB cable too short
* Some users may find the smaller LCD harder to read
* Can't be used for permanent temperature monitoring i.e in a case
The Bad
* Nothing to report

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! Quote

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 Quote

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