Any ideas for something that is reliable and won't break the bank?

I'd also like a soil ph meter so I can run some experiments. Anything under $50 that would work? It doesn't need to be lab grade.

http://shop.hannainst.com/hi98108-phep-ph-tester.html?id=040003&ProdCode=HI%252098108. Use distilled water to store the pen electrode. Calibrate the level of pH meter weekly or bi-monthly because they tend to drift.
