Reviews of Seek Reveal
Seek Reveal Review 1: I found it perfect in every way HERB THE POWERMAN
It arrived today, on time ,paper instructions well there are non. that said I fumbled through the three buttons on top. it took about ten minutes to some what weave my way through the set up mode. now I am a semi expert .Plugged in the charge cable to my USB computer port ,using a Dork USB tester.The Seek Thermal charged at a .7amp rate at 4.99 Volts It took about 1 hour to go from 0% to 100% charge.
The flash light about 300 to 400 Lu. bright better than expected. its screen is 1 3/8 wide by 1 7/8 IN. high. you can take still pictures but no video .Then later down load to your computer .on the seek you can change the color of what is hot or cold real good feature. The picture quality is low def. that is standard on all makes .
The price of $244.63 Made this a must have. I must stress don’t think any of these type of units produce high definition ,not even close!! In menu scroll to ABOUT they show your model # serial # and there web address at thermal.com/revealsupport you can view and or down load complete instructions ,and more after you register. by HERB THE POWERMAN
Seek Reveal Review 2: Seek Thermal Imager
I bought the Seek Thermal Imager to look for thermal problems in a residence, such as insulation voids behind walls, ceilings, floors. I have only used it sparingly so far, but it seems to show useful information. For example, looking at an uninsulated pull-down attic door (hot summer climate in air-conditioned home), the door looks generally “hot” in comparison to the nearby insulated ceiling.
This is useful, however the actual temperatures of the surfaces is pretty elusive with the Seek. It has a small central crosshairs on the screen, and a temperature number at the bottom, but it’s pretty hard to tell where exactly the temperature indication is from. So I think the Seek is good for general temperature difference indication, especially if there is a pretty large difference in temperatures, such as blazing summer sun outside and cooled air-conditioned air inside.In addition to the Seek Imager,
I have an inexpensive infrared thermometer, with a laser pointer, which is very good for getting a surface temp of a small pinpoint. So for me, I can use the Seek imager to sweep around a large area, and find general potential problem areas, then follow that with using the infrared thermometer to get actual surface temperatures.
Also, in residences, it is important to locate openings where moving air can transfer heat, such as around doors, windows, or even electrical outlets. I haven’t seen how the Seek imager can help with spotting air leaks. For me, a good strong wind outside, while I feel around doors or windows with my hand, has worked to help find air leaks.
Anyway, the Seek Imager has been fun, and along with an infrared thermometer, and physical inspection for air leaks, it has helped in finding residential building thermal problems. For me, as an introduction to thermal imaging, it has worked.
PS the rechargeable battery seems to last pretty well, and the flashlight function is pretty bright also.
Seek Reveal Review 3: A quality tool (but pretty expensive)
Just received my Reveal. I already have the Android cell phone version. I ordered this from the Seek website when I was under the impression that the sensor was upgraded to 320×240; I soon found out that that was the display resolution. I was primed to immediately return it until I saw the actual hardware. I have changed my mind and am going to keep it.
First impressions: the image is MUCH sharper than the cell phone version, even though the cell phone screen is much higher resolution than the Reveal screen. The thermal calibration, while still lacking an emissivity setting, is better that the cell phone version. As an example, my skin registers at 90F with the Reveal but only 88F with the cell phone version.
The general impression is that it is well made and should handle a fair amount of jostling around. Dark blue case with black buttons and accents. The display is obviously vulnerable, and a carry case would have been a nice addition.
All functions are button/menu controlled. The center button turns on the IR camera. Takes about 3 second to show an IR image.The changing functions of the buttons appear on the screen below the particular button. The center button now becomes a Menu button and the left is for various color mapping filters, while the right is for image capture. Further descriptions of the various Menus are beyond what I want to do right now.
There is a dedicated button on the right side that turns on the flashlight, the first click is on high bright, if it is clicked soon after the light dims to save battery. If it is clicked a third time (or after a longer wait) it shuts off. The percentage of brightness is selectable in a buried menu.
As far as the flashlight, it is claimed to be 300 lumens, but when I A/B compared it to two different Surefire LED 200 lumen flashlights and I find that the Reveal appears about as bright, but not brighter to my eyes. Of course this judgement is clouded by different light patterns; Reveal has a very soft spot surrounded by a larger spill region compared to the Surefire lights. At 100% brightness it should be great for most near work around the house and yard.
The microSD card and the microUSB connector are under a rubber plug in the rear of the device. The microSD card is installed when you get the Reveal, however removing it is a real chore. It is a spring loaded socket, but when it ejects there is very little to grasp and it is even made more difficult to remove because of inadequate clearance for you fingers. You will need tweezers.
The Welcome Guide is very sparse. Mostly contains pictures, many that are clearly not from a Reveal camera, that illustrates possible Reveal uses. It is possible to update the software, but it isn’t clear how it is accomplished. At any rate, there are no new software as of November 2, 2015.
