Very easy to use and calibrate. Hope it holds up as well as others have reviewed.

Love it.
Love it so far. Couldn't believe my PH was off that much. Highly recommend. There might be better ones but this one works great so far.

Works as advertised
I've used this during one brew session. I believe it's best to calibrate before each brew session.

Not calibrating after 3 uses
Expensive, high maintenance as far as calibrating, making sure it is in storage solution. Stop calibrating 4.01 after 3 uses. Was accurate when used, but worthless now.

Not Great
I had a bad experience with this meter - starting with a broken seal. Hanna sent me a new seal, but the meter didn't last a year. Readings were also not very consistent for me. I wish I had put the money I spent on this toward the Vinmetrica SC-300 unit I have now - it works great. I think if you want a quality pH meter, you simply have to spend a bit more money.

Great pH meter but high maintenance cost
This is a great pH meter. My only concern is that the probe must be replaced about every year and that is $60. The price has come down some but that is still pretty steep. You should also re-calibrate every brew or at least every month. The calibration solution is only good for about 3 months so keep that expense in mind as well.

I don't use mine anymore. The water in Memphis is very soft so I just add some calcium chloride or gypsum to get my calcium ppm above 45. My efficiency is consistently above 80% so I am really not concerned with pH anymore. Your situation might be different but consider this before making the investment in a pH meter.

Very good
A very good ph meter. Much better than other ones I've had.

A must have for all grain setups...
This unit is a good price and a good ph meter. Just don't drop it - or you will have to buy another ph bulb for over 40+ - ouch.

A significant improvement over Ph strips
This meter worked great the first year. I made the mistake of taking it into the vineyard and attempting to get a reading on grape juice with pulp in it. I had to replace the sensor.

A new $70 electrode solved the problem. Now in the third year I find that I have to calibrate the meter after it is idle for more than a few days. I go through a fair amount of calibration solution.

I'm thinking of moving up to a more durable instrument next time I need to replace the sensor.

Works great but take a little getting used to
This is a great pH meter but it does have some quirks. I've heard some other reviews of people saying that it takes frequent calibrations. At least for me, this hasn't been the case. Maybe I make sure to clean it with fresh-water after every single measurement I take.

The one strange thing about it is, the pH always seems to drop over time. The most precise measurements happen around 1 or 2 seconds after the meter has been inserted into the wort. After that the pH value keeps decreasing. I don't think I've ever seen it stabilize except with pH buffer solutions. So be warned.

Other than that, the device is rugged and feels great. The rubber buttons are awesome on brew-day when there's water flying around.
