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.

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

Tired of inaccurate hydrometers. The brs refractometer is for you. It holds calibration well. The lense is nice and clear.

I have been using a swing arm hydrometer for about two years. I would check it with my LFS refractometer and it always stayed .001 off. Would wash it out with warm water after every use. But this refractometer i purchased is so easy and spot on I really could of kicked myself if something went wrong because of ole' swing arm malfunctioning. At times I wondered because the arm would get stuckor bubbles in the mechanism. Now there is no question and know that this lil tool is just insurance to help protect the investment of my beloved reef. Thank you BRS for making this product affordable.

I like the refactometer very much, but I just can not for the life of me, see through that tiny eyepiece, I was going to return it, but my wife said "Keep it, I can see just fine" so I'm writing a review based on whatshe said Lol

I have been Reefing for over 15 years and have been using the old fashion hydrometers. After using a Refractometer I would never go back. Readings are so fast and there is no need to shut off mixing pumps to get a good reading. .

Only "complaint" is that it is much easier to read pointed at a bright light, so doing evening maintenance requires some squinting.
