Positive aspects of the product (pros): Easy to use, accurate, complete
Cons: more expensive than test strips (but well worth it), may irritate skin.

 
This is the only brand of test kit I use in my tanks, easy to use and very accurate. They last quite awhile too.

The only downside I can see is if you get certain drops on you it can really irritate your skin, so excercise a little bit of caution, and keep away from small children.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Lasts a long time and Gets used often
Cons: Pricey

 
This pricey, but (in my opinion) necessary test kit....is a "must have" for every fish keeper. These tests are very accurate and beat the pants off the test strips that I've used. Quick results and more than enough tests per bottle.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Accurate
Cons: possible irritant

 
I was using test strips before finally going out and buying this product. The price was a little shocking at first , but it pays for itself in accuracy. You get a lot of test out of it too, much more than test strips. This product is a must if you are cycling with fish, in my opinion. The only downside to the kit is the ammonia and nitrate tests have irritated my skin before.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Best around, accurate and trustworthy, which is important.
Cons: Cheaper alternatives

 
I find that the cheaper alternatives give varied results. When it comes to water parameters I want my numbers DEAD ON. That's why i believe the extra money is worth it in this case.

This product this certainly a "must have" for any and all fish keepers.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Accurate and easy to use,
Cons: none.

 
You are getting better accuracy and more tests for the money then that of test strips when you get this kit.

Lets put it in perspective......
-This kit on average is $30 and does 800 tests.

-Test strips kits are on average $11 for 25 test strips.

-You get 3 test strips kit and you already have spent more then you would on the master kit in the first place and you only get 75 tests that arent near as accurate.

Get this kit you and your wallet will like it better in the long run.

Got a great price from walmart online, $18 Like the 4 vials that are included so you can run more than one test at a time.
