4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, but not great, 19 May 2011
I needed some scales to measure herbs and other such lightweight items, which could measure to 0.1 gram accuracy. The product does what it says on the tin. It is pretty accurate, although it may be wrong by 0.1 grams, give or take. It measures a British penny at 3.5grams (official weight is 3.56 apparently) but if you want a cheap, small, portable set of scales which produce accurate results (with a tiny margin of error) then you will be satisfied with this product.

You can, however, tell that it's cheap. The battery compartment is a bit weird and loose, and one of the metal springs fell out when I opened it and I haven't found it - however it only requires 2 AAA batteries, and there was another metal spring. Other than that, the actual scales are very good for such a price, and it does come with some handy measuring options. So in summary, the product is good, and at the price I bought it, I would probably recommend it. However, it's not great, and if you're looking for a very durable, precise set of scales then this product is probably not for you. 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 9 July 2010
Was looking for some weights to tone myself up and basically get me bigger muscles, six pack etc. Just wrap a bit of clingfilm around the bars and these do the job perfectly - pretty heavy and good for working out. The exercise wallchart that comes with it which shows the different exercises you can do with the weights is also very helpful. Good price compared to other retailers which charge quite a bit for the postage (comes free as ever with Amazon's Supersave :) ). Overall, very satisfied with the product - 5/5.
