This is a great device for home use; it has decent accuracy and performs its function, and its cheapness comes from the thin, low quality plastic case that probably won't take kindly to drops. A similar device with a resolution to 1 lux will cost anywhere from 3-30x this device; costly ones are calibrated against a standard lab, and most costly have resolutions below 1 lux. Cheapo ones are not calibrated such as this 1010b.

Some clarifications from criticism made on other reviews: lux meters are made to approximate the brightness of light as it appears to human vision. Its is not an exposure meter for photography, but with formulas, conversions can be made. Human color vision can go down to ~ 0.03 lux, and most lux meters are designed for industrial use to estimate how much lighting a human work environment should have; ~ 0.3 lux is the brightness of a full moon illuminating a dark night [ no light pollution from any man made sources] a light that few will ever read or work out off. Measurements below 1 lux are increasingly for scientific use.

Is the accuracy good enough and what if it drifts from its setting? This device is probably made by see "comments", and other brands not only look identical, they have identical instruction manuals, so you can review it before hand, see comments. A human eye can barely discern 1 lux from 2, its better at large changes, say 10 versus 20, that the rated accuracy of 5% is practically invisible, if this reported value is true.

How accurate is it? I have a fenix LD01

I purchased this product for my daughter's science fair project in which she measured light intensity. This meter has three levels of sensitivity and is very accurate and easy to use. It was able to measure light through water, air and fog for all the bands of visible light and had an easy to read digital output. I was very happy with this product and would reccomend it to anyone who requires a light meter.

I found this lux meter to be completely satisfactory in general. What I did not understand from the description is that the lux scale is an integer scale, and the lowest that the meter reads in 1 lux, which is still pretty bright. This is through no fault of the product, but I had hoped for a meter that read fractional lux.

I needed a simple, uncomplicated Lux meter to assess light levels at work and at home for a health condition. This meter was perfect. Easy to operate and gave me the information I needed.

Honestly this was an impulse buy. I thought it was for photography. Got it and realized it was for light measurement (lux). That said I still use it to measure stage lights when I shoot video productions. "THIS IS NOT A PHOTOGRAPHY LIGHT METER"

I bought one of these meters several years ago at a much higher price. But between my studio and my home, it's never where I need it. (And I paid a lot more for the old one) So for this price, having the second is great. I use it for hobby/amateur filmmaking and I teach workshops on that subject. Getting a good feel on how much light will give a good image is important - remember, move your light a little farther away and you cut the amount of light drastically. So this is a great way to get consistent lighting without the expense or complexity of a professional photographers lightmeter. (obviously the expensive stuff does a fantastic job), but if you are on a restricted budget, this light meter will do a very good job for a great price.

Embarrassing though this is, it took me some time to realize that the dark plastic is the cover, not just some super-dark diffuser. Removing the cover reveals the light plastic diffuser for the sensor. Then it worked perfectly.

I'd read that the light reading unit cover was removable but thought the cover was the shape and size of the dome...so I was scratching away like crazy trying to get the black dome to pop off. I used a razor blade, screwdriver, anything I could find with an edge, trying to get that dome cover to pop off. I finally went back and re-read an explanation(from a review on an identical lux meter selling for $12.58 also on Amazon) again and then went looking for the slots mentioned. The only slot(s) apparent were on the side of the light reading unit and bingo...the cover is the entire top/length of the light reading unit and pops right off when something is twisted in one of the slots. Duh, I said to myself slowly.

In the perverse logic of the manufacturer, the words OPEN are on the top of the cover, inside a raised edge circle. So naturally I was pushing down on the OPEN, thinking that would somehow pop the dome off. If the technical writer had ever read Charles L. Dogson, he would have known to write OPEN ME instead, and saved me from almost pushing a hole through the device. I bet they're having a real giggle about that back in the factory.

The lux meter is working now, but it's too soon to know how long it'll last.
