I bought these scales as a gift, and wanted them to be slim (to fit into a miniscule kitchen), accurate, and easy to use. They're all of these things, and were the perfect choice. They're slim enough to fit into a variety of nooks and crannies, weigh things very quickly, and have a large, uncluttered display.
I disagree with the review about flawed buttons entirely - we've had no trouble with these at all. They're not so much buttons as a set of contacts - pressing them gently is all it takes to make the contact and turn them on/off or change from metric to imperial. It can occasionally take a few attempts to turn the scales off, but the buttons are generally very responsive and nice to use.
Overall, these are attractive, well-made, easy to use and very accurate. A perfect gift!
