Preferred Digital Testers?

I've been looking at the Hanna HC digital testers... Does anyone have a preferred digital tester set that they like??

I know the Hanna sets are about $50 each, so i can afford to get one per pay period, and eventually have everything I need.

What tests do you guys recommend??

I had all three hanna checkers: alkalinity, phosphates and calcium. Everything BUT calcium works like a charm. The calcium one i found to be a huge hassle to do and the results were iffy at best.

The phosphate and alkalinity ones are easy to use and super accurate. i highly recommend them.

I think some of the testers aren't for my needs, but they may make those really expensive ones, like the $200 ones for nitrates and stuff like that.

The only three that are handheld and small are the ones I have. But if theres another one you're looking at link it! lol
