The Wintact WT530 stands out as one of the top infrared thermometers we've tested, while the ThermoPro TP-30 falls into a more modest category. Our benchmark awards the Wintact WT530 an impressive total performance score of 8.0 out of 10, whereas the ThermoPro TP-30 receives a score of 6.3.
When it comes to design, both thermometers offer a similar overall quality. The Wintact WT530 receives a total design score of 7.6, while the ThermoPro TP-30 achieves a slightly higher score of 7.9. However, in practical terms, the difference between the two is hardly noticeable.
Where the Wintact WT530 truly shines is in usability. According to our reviewer, it provides a more comfortable user experience and offers four different measurement modes, surpassing the ThermoPro TP-30, which only has three modes. Furthermore, the Wintact WT530 proves to be more versatile overall.
The Wintact WT530 should be a decent upgrade to the ThermoPro TP-30.
