IMHO, the TF100 and Taylor 2006K are more accurate, definitive, and reliable. As long as the reagents are kept in the shade when not used, they will do exactly what you want, give real results consistently.

Batteries fade, strips can vary, readers get dirty, sensors drift, etc....

Welcome to TFP!

The ColorQ is probably the best of the affordable digital units, but not as good as a top quality drop based kit (like the TF-100 or Taylor K-2006). It has several quirks that can cause issues in some situations. Notably, test results can be thrown off when either FC or CH are very high and it's CYA test isn't very precise.
