While you await an answer, visit the equipment forum and search refractometer

Sorry for the short answer, I don't use one but thought this could help

Amazon has some standard-grade ATC ones for ~27 delivered. I've been eying them for a few days.

Unless you hit up the lab supply stores, pretty much all the refractometers you can find at the homebrew shops sell what is essentially the same model. There are a few different scales out there and some have automatic temperature correction, but aside from that they're all pretty much equivalent. Bobby_M is known for good service and his price is solid: http://brewhardware.com/refractometer
