Pros:
Good price, seems accurate enough
Cons:
The keys on the keypad are the membrane type and do not appear to be made all that well. I have not had good luck with membrane keypads over the years, so I doubt that this one will last that long either.
Other:
I use it for weighing containers of lead bullets that I cast so that I can count them or ensure that the same amount are in each container. It's not as convenient as one of the weigh scales that actually counts the items by weight, but for my use, it's acceptable. For example, 200 .45 caliber 230 grain lead bullets in the alloy that I use weigh 3054 grams (including the lightweight container). When I'm filling up the same type container, I just start with it nearly full and add or subtract a couple of bullets until the scale indicates at 3054 or slightly greater (I would rather be a little over than a little under in my count).
Bottomline:
If it had a better keypad, I would probably give it 5 stars.
