Good Meter? Hanna pH/EC/TDS Combo (Mfg# HI 98129)

I have recently been getting what I consider erroneous readings from my cheapo $15 TDS meter and am considering buying a new meter, it's the Hanna Instruments pH/EC/TDS Combo (Mfg# HI 98129).

Does anyone have any experience with this meter? I am only intending it for use with testing TDS but it also does pH and has a removable/replaceable electrode for that, it's waterproof, etc. $130 right now on Dr Fosters & Smith.

I really don't want to have to buy another one. The one I have has this little screw in the back to calibrate it, and I tried - forgot about it. This one is digital calibration.

That link above was for the pH probe...oops.

Still, I found a slightly used on on eBay for $100 shipped, along with 5 huge bottles of various Hanna solutions for cleaning, calibration, pH adjustment, etc. Sweet!!!

Sounds like a decent pick up, you get it? Let us know how it works out for you. Maybe even a short review would be nice.
