It's hard to get too excited about them but they very clearly, accurately and comfortably tell me my weight. Which is basically what i'm after in a set of scales.
Certainly much better then the fancy digital body mass one I had before, which lasted just a few months.

These are great scales comfortable to use and the weight is clearly visible. I'm still fat and not very popular but at least I know how much I weigh. I dont think amazon sells personality scales but when they do I'll be in there like shot.

I wanted simple scales that told me my weight. These scales don't even do that. They give a different reading every time, with a +- error of 1-2 pounds. They have to be reset to zero every time and the slightest tap on the pad will move the dial needle to a new position. If you want to get a gestimate of a sack of potatoes and they're the only scales around - fine, but if you are watching your weight and each pound counts, forget it. These scales are an utter waste of money.

To get an accurate reading on these scales, you have to lean forward.
They feel plasticky, but doubtless, they'll be durable - I've already had mine 3 years.

I have had these scales for almost 2-years, and they have had a fair amount of use by my family. They still work perfectly. However, it is important to use them on a solid level floor, and stand upright, or they will give erratic readings
