Both the Eventek ET312 and the Helect infrared thermometers are known for their accuracy, making them top contenders in our database. In terms of performance, the Eventek holds a slight advantage with a score of 8.2 out of 10, while the Helect performs admirably with a score of 8.0.

When it comes to design, the competition is close. Our reviewers rate the Helect with a score of 8.0, slightly edging out the Eventek's score of 7.9. However, the Helect surpasses the Eventek in terms of display brightness.

Usability is where the Eventek ultimately takes the lead. With four different measurement modes, it outshines the Helect, which lacks this feature.

All in all, the Eventek ET312 infrared thermometer is an excellent upgrade from the Helect. Not only does it offer high accuracy, but it also provides greater versatility with its multiple measurement modes.
