cheap, low quality but ok – Portable Digital Pocket Scale - 500g/0.1g (2*AAA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
same as sku.9201 (package also says model MH-500), but only almost 1/3 price.
display also has backlight.
quick and accurate readings.
comes with cover.
Cons:
very low build quality: my unit had the calibration button shorted on the PCB, so I had to take it apart and fix it (soldering point was making short circuit). so initially I always ended up in calibration mode...
Can only be calibrated with 500g weight (DX should get these in stock).
Other:
scale can be set to g, tl, oz, ct and multiplies of "units" (so it counts pieces).
Bottomline:
cheap but ok. If you have to take it apart, be careful with the hinges (I broke one).
