What's a good soil ph tester?

I've followed all of Lou and Bamboo Rabbit's instructions in potting my blueberries but would like to be able to test the acidity of the soil. My meter is obviously a piece of junk. It thinks everything's a 7, except a cup vinegar, which it gave a 6.8!

What's a good one?

You will like it. I checked it's readings against test paper and it was spot on.
