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
