Hygrometer recommendations

I am looking for a reliable hygrometer to detect the humidity in our wine room. The ones we bought at the hardware store don't seem to be calibrated properly and we have tried a few. They are off by 10% sometimes. Any recommendations?

I too have tried many and short of paying for a calibrated instrument I don't know of any consumer grade ones that are "accurate". Almost all are repeatable which is something you can test for but accuracy is a different story. Some are accurate but some are not and almost/all consumer ones are both and you have no way of knowing. Almost all will give you a relative idea but getting a tested and calibrated one is the only way I know of... and they are noticeably more expensive.
