Good phosphate test kits?

I've heard that salifert makes good test kits, but I was told that their test kit used to measure phosphate is hard to read. Who makes a reliable easy to read phosphate test kit?

IME, the kit's I've used are all hard to read, Salifert's isn't that hard. It's all color comparison, problem is there is not a drastic color difference from one level to the next, and that seems to be the same with all kits.

I have posted before about my dislike of the salifert kit because of how it reads, however its important to know that I have trouble distinguishing grey scale colors just because I was made that way LOL. Anyhow I still think salifert is the best out there, and in the off chance that a post I made a few weeks back about that kit influenced you I thought I should mention again that my particular trouble in reading it is all about my eyes. Take care, and good luck.
