This is my favorite

Goes on sale a lot and got mine for around 10$. I prefer the .01g accuracy and 200g limit it large enough to fit a good sized cup on there when I make lattes.

This is the one I use:

American Weigh Scales 1000g x 0.1g, almost 500 reviews averaging 4.5/5...has perfectly suited my needs.  I weigh out my beans in the container that comes with the scale, and then dump into my grinder.  From the point that I turn the scale on, it takes roughly 5 seconds to ready itself (tared/zeroed with the empty container on top).  It's got a nice blue backlight, so you can see even if it's dim.

If you feel the need, you can also get the 500g calibration weight:

Combine those two and you're under $20.

Good, compact size, has only fallen out of calibration once so far (by 0.1g).  Haven't needed additional accuracy of a 0.01g scale.  Thin enough for me to fit it under the portafilter w/ a 3oz shot glass on top when I want to weigh my shots.
