Like everything else, you get what you pay for. You want the best, get the Exergen, hands down
If thats too pricey, then stop by Pep Boys and grab their infra red pistol grip temp gun. They are only about $75.00 I had one of each, and compared the temps, and the Pep Boys pistol grib was only off by 2 degrees .
Even cheaper than that, try the small Paul Coleman temp gun from Ofna. About 1/2 the price of the pistol grip.
The prices are all over the chart, and it is only determined by how much you want to spend on it.
