Room for improvement By Prashant on 8/8/2013

The unit itself is fine, but the process is not acceptable due to the following constraints.
#1, considering the amount of reagent needed for a single test, the packet is way oversized and leaves room for quite a bit of error due to the fact that it is very easy to lose the reagent powder in a corner of the packet or on the sidewalls. Without cutting it open completely and taking it all out with a razor, there is no way to tell whether or not you made an accurate test. Also, the shutoff timer is no good because it does take time to get all of the reagent out and it does require a few minutes to shake up the vial so that everything is dissolved.
They should go with a smaller tube that holds the reagent or put it in a bulk container and supply a precise micro measuring spoon. Also, only giving 6 tests with the kit is ridiculous when all of the others come with so much more.
Better reagent packets would give them 1 more star and more of the packets would've given it one more for a perfect score.

got this for my first tester because of the negative reviews I had read on the difficulty of using the other testing devices. Love the digital read out and it makes everything so much easier

Quick and easy to use. Much faster and simpler than matching colors on a test card. I wish they made colorimiters for everything.

Great tester but the powder in the little bags are difficult to dump in the vile.
Best for the price By Chris on 6/6/2013

The unit is solid, the instructions are clear, and it gives a clear and precise reading. The only downside is the reagent packets are nearly impossible to use without spilling or leaving some reagent inside.

Will never bother trying tor figure out color charts with phosphate tests again. Even comes with a nice little case!
Hanna Phosphate Checker is good! By Diana in OK on 5/6/2013

Could use easier written instructions but if you watch the YouTube videos it's easy enough to do. Happy with my purchase of the phosphate checker by Hanna.
Be sure to order more reagents as the kit only comes with six packets.

Great product makes checking phosphates easy after you get the hang of how to use the meter.

No more "is that purple, wait in this light brown" takes the guess work out, great for typical reef with SPS, use to check your GFO depletion, check tank reading vs outlet of reactor when they become the same change it out, will pay for its self I promise ;)
