Makes checking SG easy By RDM on 2/20/2015

I've had one of these for a year and it has worked very well. I recently added a second tank and a water mixing station. The first one worked so well and carrying it back and forth between the house and my shop got old so getting a second one seemed like a good idea. This is easy to calibrate and use which makes it quick and easy to keep an eye on the SG for my tanks and new water mixes. Highly recommended!

The build quality of this unit is aces. Works like a dream... As a new to the hobby reef keeper, I have to say I have nowhere to go but down after using this refractometer. This is the top.. You deserve it, order one now, you won't be disappointed. Get the case too as this device is worthy of the love.

I love technology, especially when it works. I use this refractometer as my primary tester. Extremely easy to use and calibrate.
Way too easy By Paul on 12/30/2014

Should of used this earlier, way easy to use and very accurate readings. you can use the available three readings with a touch of a button and no more trying to see the line between marks. You won't regret buying this. I have retired my handheld refractometer now. Just make sure you rinse your pipet in freshwater so you don't get salt build up and throw your readings off.

don't know why i didn't do this earlier - so much better than light refractometer and easier. much more accurate readings.
Easy to use and mostly accurate. By DivingTheWorld on 12/19/2014

I have used this quite a bit now and I do find it to be accurate. I find that you can calibrate with either RODI or Distilled water and it doesn't make a difference with the results.
The reason I don't give it 5 stars is due to the 1 ppt offset. To get an accurate 35 ppt level in your aquarium, the Milwaukee will display 36 ppt. I have verified this with two different calibration fluids and comparing to a Pinpoint and a Tropic Marin High Precision Hydrometer.
But once you know the offset, the readings are accurate and it's simple to use.
Best refractometer! By Jim on 12/19/2014

Don't waste your money on any other product. Simple to use, always accurate, functional, easy to read, and more fun to use than other methods. Spend your money wisely and choose this product first vs sampling other testers only to get to this product after trial and error.

Super easy and well worth the money. It is an elegant device that takes the guess work out of reading a refractometer or especially a hydrometer.

I love this product, it is really easy to use. Correct salinity levels are critical in this hobby. Worth to buy!

Wow I wish I would have bought this sooner. Takes all the guess work out of salinity. Simple to calibrate and use. Since water is the most important thing to get right in this hobby this is almost as important as my RODI.

this is my savior, i hate having to read an analog, refractometer.
it gets 4 stars because of price but to be able to read a digital readout is priceless.

Exceedingly easy to use. The instructions could say 'just add water' and you'll pretty much be set. The temperature readout seems a bit off, but I'm not too worried about a couple of degrees on a refractometer.

I love this product, It takes the guess work out of measuring the salinity of my water. It is really easy to use and takes next to no calibration. Perfect for me since I am not tech savvy.
Should have gotten it sooner. By Jon on 6/1/2014
Jon would recommend this product to a friend
This tester is so easy and convenient. Sets next to my mixing barrel, hit on, 2 drops of water, read... BAM it's done. It's real fast. No more holding a tester up to the light and focusing in. The despair is easy to read and tests in 3 separate setting. I've hesitated getting this tester ever since it came out because of the price. I just wish I would have gotten it a long time ago.

This is so easy to use. It's accurate fast and simple. Compared it with my handheld refractometer and the readings were exactly the same. Easy to calibrate and easy to clean what else can you ask for.
Like the refractometer part of it By Norman on 5/19/2014
Norman would recommend this product to a friend
It will give you a reading higher or lower if salinity reading is between two numbers.
Temperature reading inaccurate!. Tried it with my own machine and a friends.

Easy to calibrate and easy to test. Couldn't be any simpler. It is not messy to use and eliminates any uncertainty in the result.

Very easy to set up and use . It's nice how it sits on a table top and allows for testing. After having multiple hydrometers and a refractometer it is nice to have a digital tool. I also feel it should of came with the case.
