RedSea and Salifert are good manufacturers. I don't know if they make an all-in-one style setup the way API does.

I use API on my tanks, simply because it's what I bought for my freshwater, and I'm used to them. I will probably switch to RedSea when the time comes to restock.

Hanna photometers cost more, but are superior in my view.

Agreed, and in the long term are probably cheaper than buying kits every time you need refills.

Hanna requires reagent refills, but the test results actually mean something. They are consistent.

I think Red Sea tests are good and easy to read. They sell kits for $50 with 3 and 2 tests. They have refills that are about $12-15 as well.
