    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Plastics are solid, won't creak
    - Well finished, comes with batteries, ready to go.
    - Multiple measure units (grams, ounces, kilograms, pounds)
    - Bright blue LCD backlight
    - Big LCD, easy to read even in awkward angles, when weighting the luggage.

    Cons:

    Actually, I have no complaints on this product. It seems to measure reliably, feels solid, came well (not fancy, but well) packaged and ready to use. I just popped the batteries and turned it on.
    Beware, though, of untestedly shipped units. I bought two of them. One arrived with unreadable LCD, all digits have the top and top-left segments unreadable. Given to the state of the package, it feels safe to say that no one really bothered to test prior to shipping. Both units came exactly alike. The first to be unpacked worked fine, the second was damaged.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    This is the kind of item you want to pack in order to avoid nasty surprises with overweighted luggage. Though it's not really cheap, it pays on precision and build quality, so it's a good buy.
