Best product for FG readings
Uses much less volume to take a hydrometer reading than in a standard tube. Has to be held perfectly level to keep the hydrometer from touching the side however it's quite simple. I do also get a few drips from leakage but I have no complaints over a few drops. For me this product is a necessity and makes the process easier.

Good value for money
much better than designs that come apart for cleaning. I dont find that it leaks at all. Very satisfied.

An Easy, Sanitary Way To Take Samples
I always use this to take OG and FG readings. I have never tried to drop the hydrometer right into the sample taker tube. I always empty the sample into a hydrometer test jar. It works great!

Good thief
As others have mentioned, it does tend to leak. I've started to use the thief to pull wort and dump into another container where I can take a hydrometer reading.

Effective, but has small leak.
It completely works, but anticipate a few drips. Works with a standard hydrometer.

Leaky, but functional
This does what it's supposed to, but expect significant leakage.

a little sensitive, but does take samples
I mostly use it for taking samples, after the krausen has fallen, to get a feeling for whether fermentation is done. Sometimes it dribbles, but since I'm immediately transferring to a cup for taste testing and taking a refractometer reading, it works perfectly well.

Leaks a fair amount, but does what it should
I have two, one for sours and one for "clean" beers. It makes sampling much easier, but it does leak from the bottom quite a bit. Just hold it over your sanitizer bucket when taking a hydrometer reading and its fine.

Does what it should, but...
I like the item, but it leaks a bit. This is a general rule for this type of item, not just this particular brand. I drop in the hydrometer with a spin, and gravity readings can be taken from one dip. Just be quick, and hold it over a catch basin of some sort, to collect any drips or spills.
