I just purchased this scale and am VERY impressed with it. Previously I had purchased a similar scale for about $10.00 less. That scale seemed to work okay but I kept getting different weights each time I stepped on it. I finally realized the scale was very sensitive to my body position, if I was leaning a little one way or another. I would try to stand the same way every time, straight and even, but I have a badly damaged equilibrium system so that was very hard and I was very frustrated. I opened up this scale, read the instructions, took out the plastic strip on the battery, set it on the floor and stood on it and then got off. That was supposed to start the scale. After that I tried weighing myself on it several times and always came out with the exact same weight. I think this scale proves itself to be very accurate and not so sensitive to standing posture as some other similar scales. I am very happy with this scale and expect many long years of accurate, easy measurements with it.
It's a scale. Within 10ths of a pound of an older scale. Well made and it looks good.
This scale is amazingly accurate in fact too accurate lol!! I wish it lied !! It looks great and works really well. If your looking for a designer friendly accent scale this is it!! When your wanting to purchase quality purchase a TAYLOR scale!!
It is a great scale for the price of it.
