"No calibration button!"
There is no calibration button! I believe Xikar changed the design, as it says this on their website: "No calibration needed, guaranteed accuracy of +/- 2% RH right out of the box"
That being said, it IS accurate right out of the box, but I'm worried if it still will be in a year or two. Also, Famous needs to change the description, as to not mislead people.

"Where's the calibration button?"
Salt test out the gate is at 72%, not bad, but would like to calibrate it...every review says they just hit calibration button...where are you all finding said calibration button? I see a min/max and f/c. Seems to be nice hygrometer, but would like to be able to calibrate it. Description says adjustable cal so I'm hoping its a simple oversight on my part and not change in design.

"Best hygro Famous sells"
Extremely accurate, lifetime warranty, easy to calibrate and has features that other hygros don't have. Don't even think twice, get it.

def worth spending the money on this hygrometer. other than the diamond crown hygro, this is the best one i've ever used. simple to calibrate-either use the salt test or boveda calibration kit and just click on calibrate when the time's up if the hygro isn't already reading 75%. fantastic and easy to use, cheaper than the DC. def worth the money than buying something like the caliber iii or iv, which can't be calibrated at all.

I bought 3 of these for my humidors. I had all 3 of them out and turned on getting ready to calibrate them. They had been turned on for about an hour all sitting in the same area, and all 3 of them were showing the same temp and humidity straight out of the box.
I'm sold; Xikar for life.

"Great accurate device"
Bought this item, put it in the calibration bag and it was already accurate, didnt have to change a thing. It showed me just how off my analog was, works perfectly.

Finally decided to upgrade from my analog hygrometer. Opened the baby up and did the salt test overnight. Calibrated it, and she's ready to roll. Very slim so won't take up space. Easy to read. Comes with lifetime warranty and extra battery. Well worth the $$. Definitely recommend. Buy at Famous for excellent customer service.
