I took it outside a couple of times last week and this week to see if it worked consistently - and it was accurate in all areas - temp, sunshine, moisture and PH. I moved it all around my yard and also used a planter and again, worked well in all areas. I was in particular happy with the PH tester portion as this was what I originally was after. It showed me where my yard needs work and where my yard is in good shape.
The probe is long - a bit more than 7.5 inches and very sturdy. I had no trouble inserting it into the ground in my back yard in various locations. As stated earlier, an angle was needed in some areas because of the glare of the sun on it. It fits comfortably in my hand. It has an auto-off feature if you forget to turn it off. When not in use, after cleaning the prove it has a rubber tip to put on it to protect it.
It comes in a really nice, sturdy package. Directions are very easily understood. There is a 1-year warranty.
I am very pleased with this item and would recommend it.
I've been using a low cost moisture meter I got free from the water department and it worked fairly well. I compared the Dr. Meter to that for moisture. The digital meter shows Normal (moist), wet, wet+, Dry, and Dry+ but not quite to the degree of how much like the analog meter. This shouldn't be an issue since you just want to know if the moisture is about right. I also compared the temperature to one in my house and a food thermometer. This matches fairly well too as you can see in the photos. I can't address the pH meter accuracy with nothing to compare but our soil is alkaline and it seemed to show that. It is much sturdier than the cheap meter but don't push hard on it into firm soil. Switching between modes was easy and it lights up to view it in low light areas. This seems like a great indoor tool with light outdoor use.
The good: This is very much suited for getting every single information about the soil you are putting it in, and for our use, it is working GREAT! The soil meter tells us very clearly if the moisture level is low and the temperature of the soil *under* the surface. It has a large screen that's easy to read both during the day, as well as night with it's light up screen.
The bad: sometimes having too much information may be a bad thing - this is NOT a 'casually get it' type thing, someone has to really be looking for the exact information and not an 'is the surface wet' type person. It's a bit large (long) for potted indoor plants, I would imagine it's because this seems to be more suited for a farm operation? Either way, it's GREAT for them, not for the average indoor 'farmer'
Overall, it's GREAT and to be honest, saved us from over-watering our corn in the plots outdoors!
