Bought this Taylor at Lowes last week for $17.99 and tested in boiling water. 212 dead on. Not thermopen quick but it's quick. Price can't be beat. http://www.lowes.com/pd_23809-13471-81617_5003697__?productId=3335478&Ntt=taylor+thermometer&pl=1¤tURL=%3FNtt%3Dtaylor%2Bthermometer&facetInfo=$15%20-%20$25

The Thermapen is a little out of my budget, but I'm very interested in the Cooper and Taylor. XL & others keep us posted.Thanks!
Just picked one up at Lowes, yet to try it, but for the price it is worth the risk.
picked this up at lowes today tested it in boiling water only off by 2 tenths of a degree not bad for 17.98 by far not a thermopen but it does have flames .
Thermapen website has some speed tests of various thermometers. I won't spoil the ending by telling you who wins ... :D http://www.thermoworks.com/blog/2010/10/side-by-side-testing/
Although this bulb-shaped thermometer felt awkward and cheaply made, and testers found it was too easy to hit the small buttons accidentally while gripping the head, it received top marks for speed, accuracy, and temperature range. An automatic shutoff preserved battery life.
They also recommend this one that runs for $25:
ThermoWorks Super-Fast Waterproof Pocket Thermometer
An extra-thin probe that allowed for easy temperature checks, even inserted horizontally into chicken breasts, and relatively fast readout times put this model at the top of the rankings. We also liked the location of the readout screen at the side of the wand (as opposed to the end) and the simplicity of its controls. Its few drawbacks are a low maximum temperature, the fact that it can’t be calibrated (reset when accuracy seems off), and its lack of an automatic shutoff.
