      Great meter

      Have used all the other top end meters such as Hanna and blue lab and really feel this is comparable in all regards at a slightly more affordable price, especially factoring in the ability to replace the probe head. They also have an awesome customer service team that will work to accommodate any issue you are dealing with. Highly recommended.

      Solid buy!

      Solid buy! The 5 in 1 capability provides a ton of convenience to our business. We no longer have to carry around multiple test units when checking our water at the farm.

      Good product

      I was skeptical about ordering this item. I studied ph, tds, ec, salinity, ppm, USA vs NIST, atc, resolution, multiparameter meters,single performance meters, pen style, bench style, reviews, forums, meter cost/cost for replacement parts ,country of origin , brands/manufacturers, accessories etc for a freakin MONTH until i was frustrated and sick of getting nowhere. I Decided to try this one first and go on a try and return frenzy. I am pleasantly relieved that after becoming acclimated with it, I feel the money I spent was worth it. Got here fast, came in a nice case, every essential accessory, seems well made, clear instructions, but most importantly it worked...well. Was easy to calibrate, doesn't take forever to get to a stable reading, no screwing around with fluctuations and recalibration nightmares. I like it. Glad to have it. Would have gave it a 5star but I literally just got it so I don't know how long it will last and also the tds factor setting that no one talks about. It is a very confusing setting that has no answer. That is not Aperas fault for such a ridiculous industry "standard". One would have the same issue with most higher end meters. It would be so much easier if all meters only did ec, rather than tds/ppm that are based on variable tds conversion factors that are not given by the makers of things to be tested.

      So far so good!

      I purchased this multi parameter tester to conduct third party QA/QC assessments for a lake monitoring contract. Calibration of the meter is pretty easy and the kit includes calibration standards. So far the data align with the results of the YSI multi parameter meter, a much most costly piece of equipment that was purchased my the product. So far so good! I will be purchasing a back up probe just in case and to avoid any down time.

      I would recommend this meter to the advanced hobbyist or a beginner professional.

      Very easy to use and easy to calibrate. The 5-in-1 function saves a lot of time and hassle. All user has to do is switch between modes and allow time for accurate measurement. Backlight is a cool feature, however I try to minimize use to prolong life. For all the features of this meter, including the additional calibration solutions, case, etc., the price cannot be beat. I would recommend this meter to the advanced hobbyist or a beginner professional.

      the best digital water tester I have owned

      Been using the PC60 all week and it's the best digital water tester I have owned. It's easy to use and I really like the back-lit screen feature. Comes in a real nice case which is great for storing with the rest of my tools in my truck. I will definitely be recommending this tester to my other Pool Service Tech friends. Great Job Apera!

      I feel much more confident in my readings with the Apera

      Tried some of the cheap $10-$20 meters in the past as well as PH testing solutions, and I feel much more confident in my readings with the Apera. Really easy to calibrate with the included solutions, and it is nice to be able to get CF and PH readings out of one meter (and one dip into my reservoir). Helps me keep everything in line for my hydroponic DWC peppers. Compared to other meters I think this one offers the best value. Feels well built, backlight is good... nothing to complain about. Would recommend for sure!

      The meter is on point.

      The meter is on point. Knew my oakton was trash, turns out it was reading way off. This meter is easy to use and absolutely accurate. The calibration is fool proof and the kit furnished with the meter itself is awesome. Way to go Apera. As long as your customer service is in line with your product quality, you've got yourself a loyal customer.
