After watching some videos I decided to get this one instead of a cheaper plastic one and it was a great decision especially because of the great price.

Great value. Bought this one as a back up, but now it is my main and my other one that was twice the price is the back up. This one is much easier to rear and holds calibration much better. Definitely a great buy.

Got this on sale and I'm sick of hydrometers! They never seemed accurate. This kit is solid. The unit is very solid and it comes with everything you need to calibrate it as well. You also get a nice plastic case so you can't lose or damage it.
Well made and easy to use By Jon on 12/13/2014

The refractometer is made out of high quality materials. As soon as you take it out of the case you can see the quality of the instrument. I made the purchase because I was so sick of measuring the salinity with a traditional hydrometer. I was tried of dealing with the small air bubbles sticking to the needle and causing the reading to be off. This instrument is much easier to use and much more accurate. I definitely recommend it.

My 11 year old checks the salinity everyday for. If she can use it, what more can I say.
No wayyyy hydrometer, bye bye!!!!!!! By sromero287 on 12/8/2014

Simple as this, if you love ur tank and reef PLEASE buy one of this, don't trust your whole investment $$$ in a cheap, non precise hydrometer, last week all my zoas were closed and a weird feeling in the whole tank after the water change, guess what??? Thks to my old piece of **** hydrometer my salinity was in 1,029 ppm, off course it happens at night, thks to a good friend that came with 10 gal and we saved everything. Next morning ordered my refractometer, thks BRS, essential piece at a very reasonable price.
Learn from everyone else not from "yours".

This thing is awesome. I didn't realize just how wrong my other salinity testers were. It's easy to adjust and easy to use. Absolutely one of the best buys for my reef tank.

Much more reliable than a hydrometer make a refractometer a must have for a reef tank.

Ditch the swing meter and get a refractometer By Sean on 12/4/2014
Sean would recommend this product to a friend
I can't believe I ever wasted my time and money on a swing arm hydrometer. Refractometers are a must-have for anyone starting off or getting back into the hobby. I love the pinpoint accuracy and ease of use.
It may seem like a scary equipment to learn to use at first but it's easy as cake.
I will never have a reef tank and NOT have a refractometer.

I as impressed with the quality of this product and also how user friendly it is to calibrate it and use it in general. Really like how it comes with the cal solution. One less thing to worry about when purchasing.

Very Handy Tool By Adam on 11/26/2014

If you plan on getting into the salt water hobby, do yourself a huge favor and get this refractometer! It is 100x better than those cheap plastic hydrometers that constantly give inaccurate readings due to micro bubbles. Easy to read, easy to use and easy to adjust/calibrate. Why take chances with your salt mix if you dont have to? I even prefer this over my PINPOINT Salinity Monitor that I have to calibrate more often than i do my refractor.
Hands down the best piece of test equipment that every one in this hobby should have!!!!
Works well! By Joshua on 11/26/2014

This comes as advertised. Easy to use and well built. Can be a but hard to read if you're in a lower light environment. Great product!
Great Refractometer By Harris on 11/23/2014

I originally purchased a hydrometer, but noticed it wasn't giving me a consistent reading so I decided to purchase this refractometer. I can honestly say I regret not purchasing this from the beginning. This product is easy to use and is accurate every time.
Excellent By Ryan on 11/13/2014

This refractometer is so easy to use, and we've had it for three years! The calibration was extremely accurate and easily accomplished; although, we haven't had to calibrate very often. This meter is very accurate & easy to use! At the time we purchased, it was a BRS recommended product which has always been a great thing for confidence & assurance!!
Very Easy To Use By Jason on 11/10/2014
Jason would recommend this product to a friend
I was worried when getting this, as I'm new to this hobby and mixing my own saltwater sounded intimidating at first. This refractometer is extremely easy to use and is exactly what I was hoping for. It's made mixing saltwater something that is easy to do, and I have confidence that the water is going to be spot on given it comes with calibration fluid.

Just stepped up from a little hydrometer that couldn't read the broad side of a barn. This new refractometer is great easy to use and accurate. (It's also pretty cool) best purchase I've made for my aquarium.

Okay product-exact reading difficult to get By jo on 11/2/2014
jo wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Overall not a bad product. Except that it's pretty hard to see the exact reading since the one value tacs are just too small and close together even when adjusting the eye peice
