    I have never used this one, but have seen people buy them and resell them, which made me wonder if they really work.

    I have found the GQF dial is excellent for wet bulb readings and to compare to my digitals for relative humidity readings as well.

    i think most folks around here use the wire probed accurite and clinical thermometer. Also i have seen some others use the thermometers from the reptile section :flukers ?

    The best bet IMO is a calibratable dial type thermometer-recalibrate it periodically and it works great. I tried those electronic ones from Wally World-bought 2 of them and they never agreed even when set side by side. I went back to my old dial thermometers.
    You need a good one though, one that can be calibrated. Photography stores are a good place to find them.
