You're unlikely to ever get the same result from three different sources. Given that two of them are extremely unreliable to begin with, the strips and stick on, you're not going to be in luck. The result given by the liquid API test kit is reliable so long as you follow the testing instructions. It's kinda hard to recommend a $90 electronic monitor when the $5 pH test should be getting you results good enough for almost anyone outside of a very serious reef keeper.

Agreed 100%. So long as the instructions are followed closely, the API liquid kit should be very accurate.
