Does anyone have it and can say if it's worth it?

Does it actually work?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I would guess it works, despite poor proofreading:
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I don't know much about fake reviews, but 4,402 reviews sounds like alot to be real. For the sake of comparison, I think iPads might only have 6-8k reviews....

I'd guess that they are all relatively the same. I don't think they're as accurate as a regular thermometer.

This is around for 6 months. The review count is pretty high for that, but not crazy. If it was airpods or galaxy buds I wouldn't blink.


I would say lots of fake reviews, but very good fakes. The seller did a quality job. I'm guessing all of his fake reviews are from actual purchases, that he was patient at the time gap between purchasing and reviewing to keep the review to purchase ratio within acceptable levels and avoid triggering algorithm, that he increased reviews consistently and gradually (there are a few "steps" instead of consistent slope in keepa chart of review count history, but overall it's pretty smooth, with a few lazy nights that he posted more than he should have), and that he focused on actually promoting item on social media and deal sites instead of exclusively focusing on manipulating Amazon ranking and hoping the customers will come on their own just from being on top of search results. He got a B on Fakespot, which is excellent.

If it's real it's pretty impressive, and if it's fake it's even more impressive. Overall, props to this seller. He seems have model down pat. Slow and steady and not taking egregious shortcuts wins the race, especially when you're cheating and trying not to get caught.

Yes. This was first listed on Amazon in July. (Remember, July was not March - thermometers were readily available by then for a while prior, and people who desperately wanted them presumably purchased one in May or June. This was not at a time that nothing was available and anything would have been snapped up.)

4k reviews in first 6 months of listing is definitely a pretty high number. Assuming that one out of 25 purchases results in a review, that's 100k sales in the first 6 months since release. That's an extremely impressive figure to hit organically.

I hear. The Berrcom on DDMS today was listed 8 months ago (on Amazon) & has over 20k. Would you say itís mostly fakes as well ?
