    This is a good read.You will not find too many hobbyist with a par meter. Can you tell us why you are thinking of purchasing one?This is not a piece of equipment to skimp on if accuracy is your goal.:)

    What a great article. I had no clue there were so many factors involved. Many Thanks Vinny . I wanted the meter just to know for sure what the light values were in different areas and levels. . Having read that I decided I don't really need to know LOL.
