Thanks!  Had a spot for it under the tank.  :) This unit will change the hobby for me

Are you planning on having it automatically dose off the trident's readings?  How much will the reagents be to keep this thing running?

I am.  They recommend running it for a week first.  I also have a DOS and I'm running BRS two part.  The reagents are about $45 for two months.  Not too bad.

Not a fan of Apex in general for various reasons. Plus Iím a member of the Vertex Cerebra beta test group and will be getting my new controller from them soon and it integrates with Alkatronic and the new testing device from Coral Vue.

PS if anyone is interested in a Vertex Cerebra below retail I have access to several as I acquired extras throughout the beta test period. PM me for details. This thing is gonna be a game changer

They are shipping replacement units to the first 80 beta testers in the next couple
of weeks. 

Competition definitely helps us all!

I've had zero issues with mine.  Works great.  I'm confident it's just as accurate as any other titration method.  More so with me removed from the equation.  :)

You have to buy the reagents from them.

I'm sure someone could figure it out.  But no one has to my knowledge.  There are three reagents in the case of the Trident.  Isn't there just one in the Alktronic?  I would expect it to be immensely more complicated to figure out 3 of them, but maybe it's not.  I dunno.

Yes, but it uses the reagents in different amounts for each of those 3.  It's not 1 to 1.

I sent it back... I felt bad that someone else that was on the waiting list was probably getting screwed over. The guy I talked to on the phone said that they would probably work out some sort of deal for me once they get it (supposed to be delivered tomorrow, so  we'll see).

As far as calibration goes, the directions say to wait 24-48 hours before calibrating. I haven't calibrated mine yet....

Yeah, I followed the directions...  Calibrated 2 or 3 days after I had it up and running.
