For an engineer working in the field, the standards for radiation detector are more demanding than those of "an amateur scientist" and this Geiger does the job well. I was somewhat surprised how accurate it is for what I have paid for it.

Basically, it will measure up to 999 micro Siverts per hour. This is the same range as Inspector+ from SE International, or Rad Alert geiger counters. PRM-8000 range is slightly higher (about 2milliSv) while Monitor4 measures up to approximately 500 micro Sieverts per hour. The antique alarm clock or radium hands usually measure under 5 microSieverts per hour, well within the range of our most basic model. It is hard for me to imagine a consumer product that would measure over 1milliSieverts per hour.

Case in point: effective dose of inhalation of 1 mg of pure natural Uranium is mere 0.2 milli-Sieverts, which is well within the range of this Geiger.

The biggest issue is not just the range but also precision over the wide range of measurements. This is where RD-1212 impressed me the most and why I gave it 5 stars. Ever since I got it, I have been cautiously testing it in the field and around the plant where I know what the readings should be, and this little guy was accurate within mere 10% off our industrial equipment and often enough right on the spot. This is clearly a professional piece of equipment. Thank You guys!

I just received mine, and am very impressed. I was a nuclear engineer for 20 years, so immediately placed it in a plastic lunch bag (protection against contamination, which proved to have been a good idea!). The unit was easy to use, just turn it on. The units were in microSv/h, which is just a little confusing to me, as I grew up with R and mRem, but that is showing my age.

I purchased a small geiger counter test sample of uranium ore, as well as a small vial of ore pieces from United Nuclear, and the unit responded properly, with the readings increasing to 3-5 microSv/h (from a background of approx. 0.1). Over the setpoint, factory set at 30 microSv/h, the alarm sounds (assuming that you have the settings correctly set for this), and the clicking starts; this all automatically stops once the readings fall back below the setpoint, which is great. UPDATE: I bought a small container of Morton salt substitute today (based on potassium, rather than sodium); potassium-40 gives off a 1.46 MeV gamma ray, and this brought the reading from the normal background reading of approx. 0.1 to one of 0.18; I was unable to repeat this experiment and get any higher than 0.15, but there was clearly an increase. This energy is outside of specs for the detection of gamma rays, but within specs for the detection of x-rays. They are really the same thing, only the energies tend to be different, since one is produced by changes in state of orbiting electrons, and the other from the atomic nucleus itself. Just an additional tidbit of information for you.

The Radex RD1212 is a nice unit with an SBM-20 tube. It is affordable and allows you to transfer your data collections to a PC and save it to a .txt or .csv file. The menu is easy to figure out with only a little effort and the company's support is surprisingly very good. If you do your research and due diligence, you will find that theRadex RD1212 falls with the same accuracy range as many of the more expensive models and is in fact sometimes 5% more accurate than some of the more expensive models.

WHY I CHOSE THIS MODEL:
The Radex RD1212 had good Amazon reviews and apparently 2 were engineers. I checked to see if they reviewed other products and determined they were "real" persons not merely plants entered by the manufacturer.

You don't have to take batteries out first when connecting to a PC, as was necessary on a competitor's model.

The unit gives you the ability to take and record multiple readings then transfer the data to a PC.

I was able to download and see the RadexRead software (available at quatrarad dot com) without making a purchase. I could see what other users were doing all over the world.

The Radex RD1212 units are made in Russia not China or Korea. They are not among the lower quality units that have recently flooded the market.

The price seemed like a good value. The Radex 1212 unit has the same accuracy as units priced well over three times as much.

Pre-support questions were well answered. The support person was well informed and honest and more than answered any questions.

Quatra has a pretty good manufacturer's website. There is lots of good information about the product there.

The price seemed like a good value.

All as promised, very happy with the purchase so far.
A cute little box with gold swivels, included a set of batteries, a short USB cable and a mini CD. Note: the software is apparently for Windows only!

Pros: The Geiger Counter itself: so far I like this one a lot. Namely because it is small, has a large screen with big numbers - easy for me to read.
The unit does exactly what it is supposed to: I tested it with my smoke detector and a tiny piece of uranium ore from a local hardware store, and it worked! Starts clicking immediately and the numbers go up. Ive had an older 1503 model but this one looks and acts much better. Comes with an illustrated quick start guide.

Tip: if you hold down a lower button, the flashlight comes on.

Cons: The software does not do a whole lot, except to store data, but the company promises to release an upgrade soon. USB cable is very short.

Overall: Very good for the price. A neat little unit that has passed my tests. It looks and feels nice and is very simple to use.
I would recommend this one.
