These aren't quite as accurate, as I have used a test strip, then taken a water sample to pets at home and the readings were different, and the nitrate/nitrite was showing higher on the API test than on these strips.
As long as the squares for nitrate/nitrite are the best they can be, I'm generally not worried. If they get to the orange zone (a handy colour chart on the side of the tube) then I tend to do a water change.
Would recommend for someone who has a well established tank that doesn't need frequent checking. Anything else, I would go with the liquid and test tubes offered by API, as you get a much more accurate reading.
The colours can sometimes be slightly difficult to judge, but I can usually tell that I'm within safe limits. It's probably not the kit for you if you want perfect figures, but for general use, I think it would suit most people.
Nitrate and Nitrite are a more useful climbing scale of pink but the scale is not regular so no good for accurate readings. Still, it will tell you when the aquarium is safe for adding fish so if that's all you want it for, then go for it. Otherwise steer clear. 6 in 1 might sound like a bargain but if, like me, you end up buying separate test kits as well, then it's probably not.
On top of which the test chart printed on the bottle is difficult to use as matching a test result to its very similar shades can be very difficult. Nitrates in particular is hard to read - the shades of pink are all quite similar.
The tests are supposed to be compared after 1 minute of having dipped the strip in the aquarium water but certainly the colours do develop more given a longer time. You can spend a minute trying to decide which pink the nitrate test is showing so who knows how accurate the other tests are going to be after that length of time.
Because I was not sure these strips were really working that well I bought a liquid test kit and sure enough it gave me quite different readings, particularly in terms of pH and a much easier to read Nitrate reading.
Can't really recommend these as I'm not convinced of their accuracy.
