Morning everyone, I'm just about to buy this but I thought I'd check if anyone has any experience of using one? I'm really colour blind and testing can be difficult so I was hoping this would help!

I'd be interested in any opinions or reviews of this!

Thanks.

There's a fairly scathing review on yt.

Turns out it doesn't do cal kh or mag.

Shame as it would be very useful, I struggle with the readings and I'm not colorblind.

Thanks everyone, currently wallpapering the living room so I'll respond properly once I've had a chance to look at the video and check out the hanna checkers!

Thanks for the link to that video, it does a lot less than I thought and it's the tests where you are looking for a colour change that are the worst for me.

The Hanna checkers look like they would be a lot more use to me so I'm glad I asked before buying the Seatest! I had seen people talking about the hanna ones before but now that I've looked into them a bit more they look like great bits of kit.
