  • Good, reasonably accurate scale

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Quite impressive for the price. Not only is it fairly accurate but also can display weight in several different formats. Using a reference calibration weight of 2000g, the little scale was off by 8g. Thus an error rate of 0.4%, not bad at all for such a cheap item. Tares (sets to zero) rather quickly, which is not always the case with very expensive scales.

    Cons:

    Build quality is rather flimsy. The little drawer containing the buttons slides out with spring loaded action, it seems rather fragile. The stainless steel platter was crooked on mine. I don't think it is really accurate to within 0.1g, but expected at this price.

    OtherThoughts:

    Recommended for occasional use. Probably wouldn't withstand heavy daily usage but otherwise fine.

    Bottomline:

    A no brainer at this price. Unobtrusive and practical. I would have to pay at least twice locally for something probably less accurate.
