I like the look of this scale; looks old-fashioned but is sturdy and fits in with our decor. It is very reliable. Make sure it is on a flat surface for the correct weight.So sick of digital products. Nothing can go wrong with this; no batteries to buy. THanks for making such a nice product.

I like the scale because it is not digital so at least you get a true reading, my complaint about this scale is that the black padding is separating from the scale and needs to be reglued. Disappointing for a new product, this is why I only give it 3 stars.
This scale turned out to be larger than I thought, but it works great. So much better than those digital scales. I am very pleased.

Overall the scale works, but it is a fairly cheap product in my opinion. A week after I received the product in the mail, the adhesive already was giving out and the rubber grip on top of the scale is curling. Yes it is only a quick fix with gorilla glue, but I should have this problem a week after getting it. Not worth the 40 bucks. Numbers don't really give you an accurate weight, more of an estimate. Definitely would go with a different product.

This is a sturdy, no bells and whistles scales that simply works and does what it is supposed to do. It needs nothing more than a floor to sit on. Old-school look reminds me of my grandparent's scale when I was a kid. Their scale probably still works too.
This scale is exactly what I expected it to be. 1) Large easy to read numbers. 2) Accurate and agrees with the scale at my doctors office. 3) It was delivered fast. 4) My friends love it and some of them have ordered it for their home.

I am writing this review because of the second hand nature of the scale I received today. I purchased this scale because I needed one that could endure through multiple users. However, the scale I received had been opened and stuffed back into the box and the company shipped it out like as if it was a new item. The torn box was opened on both sides which showed that I wasn't the first customer to have this scale. I would mail it back but it is a hassle to do so, Overstock should have a policy that if you purchase a new product than you should get a new product, If you receive and OPEN BOX item than they should refund at least half your money and let the company take the lost. I will not recommend this product to anyone else just because of the sender's lack of consideration on how they send products to customers.
The scale is relatively light for the style. It arrived with the plastic transparent dial cover off and partially broken, the black plastic surface for feet peeling off. The little wheel used to calibrate the scale also is not firmly attached and falls out, however, it can be wiggled into position and used with a lot of caution and patience. The spring does not feel very strong, and the weight readout appears to be random. My old scale that this was meant to replace is the better of the two.. Since it is too much trouble to return it, I am keeping it in the guest bathroom.
I previously had an expensive digital scale that did not last for even 2 years. I am very pleased with the purchase. It has a large dial and is large in size. Since it is large, it is stable and had lots of room for your feet - no balancing acts on the the scale! One drawback for some may be its size and it is heavy. But that being said, it is not going anywhere once you put it in place.
