Soil Moisture and Light Meter is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from WRONG! I have 2 moisture meters....1 says totally dry, the other says way too moist. This one is the one saying way too moist when it's bone dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is easy to use. I find it very helpful in keeping all the plants I bring into the house for the winter watered and not dried out. It also keeps me from drowning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Great For Me This moisture and light meter has worked just fine for me. It makes it very easy to get moisture readings on my wood products that I use to build furniture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This item has wonderful features I have used these items before in my house plants and garden areas. This one I purchased for a friend whom was interested in my home unit. So to giver her a similar unit I was excited to see how happy she was using it. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good piece of technology The design of this moisture meter is much better than the one I saw in the store. Having the meter attached to the probe by a coiled wire is a better design than having the probe attached directly to the meter.
