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

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.
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.
If you need to weigh something to 0.1g, GET THIS. Been tried and tested.
