I’ve used the apogee brand and it was pretty easy to use. Did the trick to dial the intensity in on my radions. The one I used had the display attached, so it was easier than some of the ones that connect to the computer etc. If I could find out the new version and where to buy it I would invest. Probably not the detail you were looking for…

I think quite a few people use the Seneye because it does more than just Par metering.

I also saw today that coralmaster has picked up a new brand but I'm not sure about pricing. Looks like it does quite a bit though.
