Bottom Line: WOW,  this scale has more features then I could possibly ever use!  Nice to know they're there though :)
Positive Product Points

This weighing machine has some really neat features and seems to be very accurate.  My old kitchen scale was driving me nuts,  I couldn't read the display without making a cup with my hands over it (glare from my new skylight).   So when I saw this one online I knew it was the scale for me.   The display is adjustable, so you can sort of move it up or down on an angle (it pivots) so you can view it at any angle.  The display is also lit-up so you can read it more easily.  It comes with a boatload of accessories so I can use it to weigh various packages and such.   There are articles about this scale on the web if you want to read more about it.  It has a beep that I can turn on or off,  a hold function to keep the weight of my coffee on the display,  it reads in lots of different modes,  it tares out anything I want,   and it has a LOT OF OTHER STUFF, more then I need really!

Negative Product Points

The scale only comes in Black,  I would have preferred a silver scale to match my decor.   Otherwise I wish the scale had been free :)

Detailed Commentary

Like I said in my product points,  This weighing machine has some really neat features and seems to be very accurate.  My old kitchen scale was driving me nuts,  I couldn't read the display without making a cup with my hands over it (glare from my new skylight).   So when I saw this one online I knew it was the scale for me.   The display is adjustable, so you can sort of move it up or down on an angle (it pivots) so you can view it at any angle.  The display is also lit-up so you can read it more easily.

Other cool stuff is that it came with a mailing tube holder,  envelope holder and a large clear bowl.  I mean, darn I can use this scale to weigh almost anything!  Plus it goes up to 15 1/2 pounds and reads in 0.001lb increments,  and goes to Grams (which is essential for Coffee).  This is really one crazy scale guys!!

Buying Experience

Everything went well,  I simply went to a website called www.saveonscales.com and ordered it with my credit card.  It arrived 3 days later.  Note that I live in Austin TX and the scale shipped from Arizona so figure it might take longer if you lived in New York.
