This a very nice unit for the price. Comes with everything you need to calibrate it, instructions and a nice case to store it.

The unit is easy to calibrate with the included solution and works as described. The only issue is that i'm not totally convinced it's worth double than those found on amazon. The unit isn't brand named, and the included instructions have tons of grammatical errors.
Just for kicks, I compared this to a hydrometer I had laying around. The hydrometer read 1.023 while the refractometer was 1.025. The first thing you should do is buy one of these and throw your hydrometer in the recycle bin.
Must Have for Saltwater Tanks By Steelsoul on 8/15/2016

The summary says it all, this is a must have for all saltwater aquarium owners. The refractometer comes preset for the most part, just make sure its in focus used like a monocular. Open clear lid, use eye dropper that's provided with kit to get a drop of water you want to test, close lid and hold it up to light, very easy to read and super accurate. I realize your thinking $40 for a refractometer or like $8 for a cheap float type, well just pay the $40 you will never regret it! The $8 cheap float will prolly work for a yr and wont be half as accurate as the hydrometer and until your fish suffer cuz your salinity is off and you cant tell because of the cheap float and you figure it out after losing your $100 fish or more. It comes with calibration fluid in case calibration is off, just buy it even a novice and follow the instruction on use.

I don't know why I waited so long to get a refractometer, this is so much easier and more accurate than a hydrometer. Bundled with the calibration fluid is a plus, even if you look at Amazon if you purchase the refractometer plus the calibration fluid it is around the same price, I'd rather order from BRS because I know what I am getting.

I have the Milwaukee M887 digital refractometer and I have to say that I think this ATC refractometer is much more reliable. Using the calibration fluid with this device is a breeze. Simple to use and this is a must have item for any saltwater hobbyist. I recommend this over "big green".
