I've had one for 4 or five months now and it's usually 3-5 off. That's not any worse than the ones I've bought at the B&Ms for $20.00

Just get some Shilala hcm beads and then all you have to use it for is to see when you put the sponges in to bump em up.

That's exactly how I do it. The beads are good enough on their own. The hygro is just a little added warning for re-hydrating.

follow up:

I put it through the salt test and after about 10 hours it read 74%. Not too bad for $7.97.
From what I've read from others, they aren't always that close. Glad I lucked out!

I picked one of these up and it was like 8* off the mark after a salt test. I did it again, and it was 6* off.

I returned it.

I was going to get this one and the white one from there. I ended up getting the white one that is smaller and like $1 less. It is only off 1% also. Going back to get a couple more.

I've also got both, but prefer the accurite because of the larger and top number denoting humidity. Otherwise, both are OK.

I’ve got the smaller white one as well. I just salt tested it last week along with my cheapo analog. It was reading 76% and I dialed the analog one into 75% the best I could. Both are showing my 50 count desktop at about 62%. I’m happy with that.

I did modify mine with a couple of extra holes, but I don’t know if that is necessary.
