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

Pros:
-This item is easily worth many times the price, and I have seen a near identical one cost almost 8 times as much, so really this cant be beat
-It comes with batteries, and AAA are easy to find in any shop. No searching for hard to find oddly-sized cells.
-As far as accuracy goes, it works well right out of the box. Tested it with various coins, and it always got within 0.1g of the real weight.
-Easy to use, instructions are clear and well written. Short, but to the point.
-Backlight is great
-Its small enough to fit into a pocket, about the size of an iphone.
-Build quality seems very good
Cons:
-This scale needs to be set on a flat stable surface, not the palm of your hand, or the weight can be out by as much as 0.5g or more.
-It is addictive, you may find yourself weighing everything you come across, and attracting weird looks from people.
Other:
Its cheap and works perfectly. If you have a need for weighing out things, it will serve you well.
Bottomline:
Nice set of scales. Very useful.
