link doesn't seem to work for me but i assume it's the same one as i've used in the past. eech, mostly inaccurate i found. i love the case it came with though and i love to fill it with all my salifert test kits which are a fair bit more costly but i know i can rely upon them.

I've only had two hagen/nutrafin kits and to be kind, they were consistent.
Consistently hard to read.
Consistently messy.
Consistently more of a pain to use than comparable kits.
I'll never buy another one.

I've used them, and they are about as reliable as the aquarium pharmaceuticals test kits. The only thing good about the hagen master test kit is the case though. Since it comes with almost every test possible, you are spending over $50 for what is essentially a really nice case. I don't ever use the calium test, the high range pH test, or the iron test. If you can get it for less than $50 (i got mine off eBay for around $30 half used), then it is a pretty good deal. Like I said, the only real benefit to having the master test kit is the really nice case.
