This is my first refractometer and its great. It's heavy and sturdy and easy to calibrate. The protective case is good to and the calibration fluid is easy to use.

Much better than my hydrometer and now I'm not going to LFS getting my salinity double checked.

This was the first refractometer I have used and I must say it is a great and accurate product. I really liked that it came with calibration fluid and a case. The instrument is east to use and very high quality. I always know my readings are going to be accurate with this. Would highly recommend this product!
Great value, precision instrument By Reefrobster on 5/21/13

This has been my first experience using a refractometer. I was using the plastic hydrometer before and I felt like I wasn't getting accurate reads on my salinity so I opted to spend a little money and get a refractometer. I shopped around and found this one from BRS at a reasonable price. It has been a great purchase. Instrument feels solid and is very easy to calibrate. I like that they include the calibration fluid and the instrument comes in a nice protective case. I now feel assured that I can get a good read on my reef tanks salinity using this precision instrument. Well worth the money.
Best Option Unless You Spend $100+ By Jeff on 5/18/13

My impression is that other places used to have good refractometers at $40 - nowadays it is much harder to find one of this quality that comes with a holding case and calibration fluid included.

It's high quality and also comes in a kit with everything you need, even the calibration solutions that helps us make sure the readings are the right ones.

I never wanted to buy one of these, but my hydrometer gave up the ghost and started to give me faulty readings. This hydrometer is spot on and is easy to read. the instructions that came with it had some mispelled words, but besides that, it's good!
Quality equipment By Joel on 5/3/13

This refractometer is great. It just needs a really bright light to get a clear reading. The hinge hasn't rusted yet (as it did with a former unit). Appreciated the inclusion of calibration fluid. Solid piece of equipment no reefer can afford to be without.
Easy to Use & Accurate By Starrme on 4/29/13

I love this refractometer.
- comes pre-calibrated
- easy to clean, just wipe off after use
- includes a cleaning cloth
- can be pointed at any bright light (works great with lamps in the evening)
- Instructions are a little vague
- Don't calibrate to 0
- Turning the eye piece focuses the line for easier reading
