What is a good reliable thermometer?

I am really pissed. I purchased a glass thermometer that sticks on the inside of the tank a while ago. I got the temp up to 78degrees, and out of curiosity today i double checked my water temp with another thermometer only to realize that my water temp read 88 on this thermometer. Now I dont know which one is right. im really pissed. Can anyone reccomend a good thermo?

Well they have those digital ones. A 10 degree difference is really significant and im supprised it would be that far off. Usually if they are off its by a difference of 1-5 degrees.
