I bought a Milwaukee ph meter years ago and it worked well for me. I used it exactly twice and I eventually sold it to a fellow home brewer for half of what I paid for it. The meter is at the top of my list of things I regret purchasing. It was rather pricey. The probes require careful maintenance and frequent replacement. The replacement probes are also expensive. I don't miss having it at all.

Pros:
-Cheap

Cons
-No ATC
-Single point calibration
-+/- 0.1 resolution/accuracy (IMO, not really good enough for making beer)

For $60 more you can solve all those cons, but depending on what you want from the meter and your budget this may or may not be worth it.
