Manufacturer Info

Marine Depot was started in 1998 by a self-professed reef geek and pre-med student Ken Wong. Ken envisioned a one-stop shop where customers could find everything they needed, from technical product specifications, reef aquarium information, expert advice on the hobby and friendly one-on-one customer support. Having grown from a one-man crew to being one of the world’s largest suppliers of reef and marine aquarium products, this very core philosophy still lives strong in the Marine Depot culture 19 years later.

CONS
Low build quality
REVIEW
I had the cheap chinese ones you get on ebay, I'm sure I've lost a frag or 2 from it. The ebay one I had couldn't hold calibration. I would calibrate with calibration fluid, take my readings 2-3 times. When I didn't get consistent readings I calibrated again and find my settings were off.

PROS
easy to use and clean (clean it after use and dry it...no rust!)
CONS
a bit fuzzy on the reading scale. (it's not my eyes I tried using a camera)
REVIEW
Gets me in the ballpark. It's not that specific as the blue line is fuzzy even when focused but when your required range is 1.022-1.026 it really doesn't matter.

REVIEW
As a beginner I needed something easy to use. This refractometer was perfect for me. The reading was accurate out of the box as I took a sample to my local fish shop after I tested it and the refractometer matched theirs out of the box.
