Are Digital Salt Meters Just As Accurate As Refractometers?

Hey all,

My Refractometer just broke, and I am in the market for a replacement.

I was looking on eBay and found some digital Salinity testers like this one

Are these digital testers just as accurate as the refractometers? It seems as thought thease digital meters would be easier to use and deal with than the refractometer was/is.

Thanks,

-TheChad

Works great. I've got to order another one though because I dropped mine in the tank.
