I have a sybon and it's great, comes with a case, dropper, and calibration solution. I think I paid around $50 for it.

That's the one I have. ATC isn't the brand that just means Automatic Temperature Calibrating. Works well. I haven't had to do any adjustment to the calibration in 6 months or more
