Very Well-built, Looks Good, Accurate – Cell Phone Style Digital Pocket Scale 500g/0.1g Reviews

Pros:
It's very well-built. Feels solid and has "weight" i.e. not flimsy.
It looks really nice, clean and silver without rust etc, the blue light is a nice touch but i usually keep it off to save battery.
I didn't have standard weights to calibrate it but i tested it out with coins and their official weights. It was spot on except for one denomination of coin where it was 0.1g off. I think that is very acceptable so don't write this off. Instead, take it as an affirmation of its accuracy.
The transparent cover keeps my mind at ease that i won't scratch the display etc.
Cons:
Placing a coin on the extreme top and bottom yields 0.1g diffence. No biggie for me. It shouldn't be a biggie for you either though cause if you needed such pinpoint accuracy, you would already be looking at those high end branded models.
Other:
Bottomline:
If you need to weigh something to 0.1g, GET THIS. Been tried and tested.
