Is the Thermapen worth it?

I'm set on buying a digital thermometer, and everyone seems to agree that the Thermoworks Thermapen is the best on the market. However, it's also $93, and I would rather spend $25 on the RT600C, also by Thermoworks, if it is just as accurate and precise. The main difference I gleaned from the reviews is that the RT600C is just a few seconds slower. What do you think? Any experience with one or both of these models?
