    Thanks Cyberian,

    I had done the test and the result is 75% at 28c (white meter) and 70% at 28c (silver meter). Digicabi meter is the one that is out by 5%.

    Thanks again for the great help.

    That is the problem with cheaper digicabi. Their hygros are usually not accurate. I never have problems with the hygros on Toyo Living and Tolihan cabinets.

    Today I went down to ask for a test and calibration for my RH meter. So I ask them what equipment they going to use to do the test. the answer is, they will get a same RH meter and put together in a drycabi and see if reading the same or not. And they can't even calibrate cos is done only by the manufacturer side.

    They don't have any equipment to do a test or calibration on the RH meter.

    I'll skip this brand liao.

    Hmm.. I dunno because I never use Digicabi. I don't trust any other brands than Tolihan Dry-Cabi and Toyo Living. Toyo Living is slightly more expensive.

    Hi, I am also facing the same problem. My analog hygrometer shows 49%, whereas my digital hygrometer shows 41%. I have just perform salt test on both hygrometers. Both gave the same reading of 75%. So who do I trust?
