Nice but expensive. Review by Donald

I bought this tester as well as a mini gac . From what I can tell it is about the same accuracy. Could have bought 4 of the minis for the price of the 500. Maybe after I use it more I will change my opinion. Bought this unit to monitor my bin stored grain moisture. Haven't used it much yet but still early. All in all it is easier to use indoors without spilling grain everywhere.

Great choice for farm use. Review by Supersetter

The minor inconveniences of running the tester manually vs. the the higher GAC units are easily offset by the price and the reliability of owning a unit with no moving parts, servos or belts to give trouble. I'll gladly dump manually for a thousand dollars difference. The accuracy and consistency have been excellent. One of the advantages of this unit vs. the cheaper miniGACs is that there isn't the mess with the GAC500. The only thing I would like to see different is a brighter and bigger display.
