This would be my third refractometer. My previous two were purchased at a LFS and worked very well. The numbers were large and light flow was good. I ordered this refractometer from BRS because it was cheaper, and I like getting preferred reefer points.
When it arrived, I immediately tried it out. The numbers were very small, the lines were compact and worse, the light going through the prism was very limited. I turned on all the lights in my house and still could barely see through the refractometer. Compared to my other two refractometers, this one is terrible. I'm not sure why everyone gives it such high ratings, but maybe they haven't used a good refractometer to compare... Or, the one I received was just a defective to start. I emailed BRS to ask for an RMA number for a return.

Despite BRS being one of the most busy sites, especially around the holiday season, they were able to get me my refractometer well before the promised date. I was running blind on salinity and was moving out in 6 days and BRS took action without me asking. I look at the shipping method in the order email and they bumped me up to 2nd day air. Thank you so much for saving my corals and myself from a headache. I will surely continue to shop here first. This refractometer is solid and accurate. No cheap parts here. Also, thanks for your helpful youtube videos!

If you want accurate readings then this is the product to get. Dont waste your money on the "fancy" Milwaukee $115 piece of junk just because it has a digital readout. I have the big green nasty Milwaukee and it is junk. The refractometer is the way to go. I calibrate it before I use it every single time because I want to be sure to get an accurate reading. If you are go back and forth between the Milwaukee and this $35 unit......get the $35 refractometer. You wont be sorry.

I finally bought one. My tank read over 1.03. I am adamant about checking all these parameters, but had no idea how bad my hydrometer was off. The hydrometer is now in the trash. I am just beside myself with disbelief that I waited so long.
