Make sure to calibrate March 24, 2015
Reviewer: Justin A. from Guelph, ON  
Test your brewing water with your hydrometer and subtract that from your SG readings. For instance, my hydrometer reads my water as being 1.001 at 60F, so I subtract 0.001 from all of my SG readings.

Readings should either be taken at 60F or converted to 60F (Beersmith has a tool which will do this for you).

I suspect these two things will rectify any accuracy issues you have with this hydrometer.

Good hydrometer, great price October 24, 2013
Reviewer: Nick Pruiksma from Dunrobin, ON Canada  
I ordered two after I had my only hydrometer broke during a brew session. Great price, but the two hydrometers read differently on the same sample of liquid; one is about 4 gravity points higher than the other. A spot made with Sharpie on the top now identifies the inaccurate one that serves as my back-up.

Excellent Hydrometer September 30, 2013
Reviewer: Ryan Anderson from Nepean, ON Canada  
This hydrometer is well priced and easy to use. Obviously it is fragile since it is made of glass. Always put it back in the case as soon as possible and don't put it in hot liquids to avoid thermal stress. It's not pyrex people!
