I would definitely recommend the scales for home use. They seem to weigh accurately and the large digital lighted numbers are easy to read and at good price. The beauty of ordering from Overstock is you don't have to go from store to store trying to find what you're looking for and comparing prices. So much easier and less time consuming to do it on line.
This scale has been great! I started my weight loss at 359 pounds and have used this scale until now I am about 295. It has been about a year. It has a great backlight and the numerals are very big. Easy to see. The only thing that people need to know is that the scale holds onto the last value and if you get on a second time and the weight is within a pound or so it will display the previous reading. You can get around this by letting it read another weight that is different ( like you spouse) and then you can get a second reading for yourself. The scale display flashes when it stores that weight.
I have really liked this scale.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very Good
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I am very heavy and this scale is still working fine after about a year.
I have been using this scale for quite some time since the summer. I am very happy with my readings as I have been losing a steady amount of weight and I feel it has been more accurate than the traditional scale I used previously. Easy to read. I often step on it twice to confirm the readings. very happy with it. I would recommend to anyone. I was 210lbs and I currently weigh in at 173lbs.
My new scales are a big improvement over the ones I had before. Best of all are the large numbers making it so much easier to read. I suspect that these scales are also far more accurate than the others that I had for many years. In addition, it takes just a short time to get the final results. I'm pleased by the purchase.
Overall this is an accurate scale but like any scale, the results will vary depending on the surface. Also, as other reviewers have stated, the scale retains the prior weight just recorded. So if you step off and back on again, you are actually getting the prior reading. You need to either have someone else get on the scale, weigh something or any other way you can get a different reading, then you can step on again.
Hello hunthard, unfortunately I was not able to locate information on the minimum weight measurements of the Taylor 7405 High-capacity (440 lb) Electronic Digital Scale. The scale is designed to measure in increments of 0.2 lbs however because it is meant to measure bodyweight it may not be accurate for items weighing less than a few pounds. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 18, 2013

Almost no scale will work well if it is on a soft surface that gives. Short carpet can sometimes be OK but shag would not be good. I have a board under mine that is the same size because I want to use it on carpet. It works fie this wayscaleevaluator on Jun 7, 2013
