Simple, easy to use and calibrate. I really like that BRS includes the calibration fluid in this deal as well.

This is a great value in a refractometer. Kudos to BRS for including a whole bottle of calibration fluid, rather than just a one-time-use packet (or nothing at all).
It's easy enough to use and it feels solid, with good build quality.

A great instrument to remove guesswork at a reasonalbe cost. No more fussing with getting the bubbles off my hydrometer.

this is a must have for all reefer. I wish I bought this in the first place then that cheap $12 hydrometer. much more accurate.

A must have instrument for any reefer.
This refractometer has a solid professional feel. Full metal body construction. The eye piece can be adjusted to accommodate your eye sight. I gave the Performance 4 stars due to the fact the prism requires a bright light source. During the day any window would be fine but in the evenings you'll probably need a flashlight to shine on the prism.
Solid piece of equipment By Chris H on 7/8/2011

I've always used the cheap hydrometers in the past, but I've been very happy with this refractometer. It feels like a quality piece of equipment. Just remember to calibrate it to the value BRS advises you on the sticker and not what is in the user manual. Look on the bottom of the case for the sticker.

Ive been using this tool for about a year and love it. It seems to be very accurate and when the calibration fluid os gone I use water directly from my R/O. Great product!
Great way to test salinity By Matthew on 5/9/2011

This unit is inexpensive and easy to calibrate. It was far more accurate than my htdrometer, and I was able to correct a salinity that was too high before it became a real issue
Should have bought this sooner By Dave on 4/26/2011

I have been into reef tanks for about 10 years using a hydrometer. I knew these weren't very accurate but very easy to use. Over the last year I started adding a lot of SPS to my tank and had to make sure the water chemistry was as stable as possible. I decided to purchase this refractometer and found it even easier to use than the hydrometer and a lot more accurate! Calibration is simple with the calibration fluid that comes with the unit.
