Dollar for dollar you can not beat the price for the accuracy this device provides.
The Refractometer comes complete with instructions so there is no guessing on how to use or calibrate the device. Its adjustable focus is perfect for vision adjustment even if you wear glasses. Providing free Calibration fluid is a great idea having a known value of 1026 is the way to go for the set point.

Just picked this up and it's great. Easy to use and calibrate. Replaced my old Hydrometer and showed i was at 1.024 not the 1.023 my hydrometer was saying. Sometimes the hydrometer took 3 readings to get a good reading. This gave me the same reading each time. That may not sound like much but can make a difference in the long run. Plus free calibrating fluid!

This refractometer came ready to go right out of the box. can't beat it for the price, compared my readings with LFS refractometer, and they were exactaly the same! and his cost 3 times as much as this one...
Death to the swing arm! By Mark on 1/23/2011

Extremely easy to use, less of a hassle than the swing arm and I am left with a better feeling about my salinity reading. Better price that Drs F&S plus calibration fluid is included in the price!!

This is a nice little product. It makes measuring salinity so much easier and by default - more accurate. I'd been looking for a better solution and this has proven to be it.

Puechased one of these refractometers after learning about how innacurate swing arm hydrometers can be. Easy to use and the included calibration fluid lets you know you are getting accurate readings. I would recommend recalibrating the unit frequently to ensure accurate results.

I' d been testing salinity with a hydrometer for 3 years only to fine out what I thought was 1.025 was really1.028 after testing with the refactometer.

No problems whatsoever with this refractometer. It is very accurate and doesn't slip much. I periodically check it with the calibration fluid and it is rarely off at all.
So much more accurate than a swingarm! By Daniel on 12/17/2010

My swingarm showd consistant values of 34ppt which is where I want. However, the refractometer showed that it was actually 37ppt which is way over what my reef tank wanted. Why do we invest so much money in these tanks and cheap out on the most important devices needed? I know I never will again. Thanks BRS for providing an affordable and accurate refractometer. Even better it included calibration fluid that was $9 extra everywhere else I was looking.

Don't trust your expensive reef tank with a 7 dollar swing arm. Get the easy basics right and don't cut corners when it can cost you a lot more in the long run.
