We purchased one of these from a different vendor, and I like it pretty good. It is easy to operate and change sounds with the remote. The sounds are fairly realistic, as auscultation trainers go. The nursing students enjoy using it to learn about the various sounds. So I give it 4 stars for these qualities. The stethoscope must be positioned very precisely at the locations or else you hear silence. I found that I did have to apply the round stickers to the locations on the chest or else the students would get very frustrated trying to locate the exact position to hear the sounds. The SmartScope uses 2 AA batteries and since there is no switch to turn the SmartScope off/on, you must remove the batteries when you are finished using it for the session or else the batteries will die since the SmartScope stays on as long as the batteries are in place. My brand new batteries died overnight because I left them in place. I am ordering rechargeable batteries and a charger so at least I can recharge the batteries and still use them if I forget to remove them after each session. (FYI, The remote only changes the sounds and makes them discoverable when the SmartScope is placed over sensors in the chest at the correct locations.) I believe the sounds actually emanate from the SmartScope itself and not within the chest. All in all though, I am happy with this product and would buy it again.
