Exclamation Refractometer Question?

I finally think I should give in and get a refractometer. There is one for sale on Ebay ill post the link. People with refractometers... Is this a good one? Or would you recommend another. And would i need to buy the calibration fluid for it? Thanks in advance.
Ryan

Sweet, sounds good for me. I actually bought distilled water not too long ago, so I have some around here somewhere. I'll be buying this as well. =) Thanks to the OP for posting this too =)
