Its pretty cool, I put it right under a bright light and I can easily see the blue now. Surprisingly my slainity in both tanks is very good. The nano was a perfect 1.025, the 125 is about 1.023 but I added a lot of top off to raise the water lvl in the fuge. Its more accurate then the swing arm, but the swing arm wasn't to bad after all.

I also have a swing arm, and a floating type. Both are fairly accurate but neither is tempature compensated like the refractometer is. I don't know how much temp plays into the measure of things but I wanted to be as accurate as possible.
