The scale is a bit larger than expected, but is very nice looking and solid feeling. It is very accurate and the weight shown doesn't jump around to find a place to settle as on my old scale. I had one problem with this purchase. The plastic battery compartment cover on the underside of the scale, which you must open to get the scale started, is very flimsy (unlike the scale itself, which is strong and well built) and extremely hard to open. I tried to open it many times until the plastic part finally broke off. The battery stays in, however, so it didn't affect performance and can't be seen.

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 liked to add in wood or other natural elements to a room to give them some warmth as opposed to making it feel like a doctor's office. I thought this scale would be a nice touch and could be left out all the time. For the most part, I was right, but the plastic around the digital readout almost completely cancels out the beauty of the natural wood. It's not horrible, but it could be better. The worst part about this scale is that it's difficult to activate it. It's supposed to just take a little tap from your foot to turn on, but sometimes I have to give it a really hard stomp before it comes on, or even lift it about an inch off the floor and let it drop before it turns on. It's done this since first use, so I'm assuming that's how they all are. As far as accuracy, it seems to be really good. I've been using it for about a month now and it measures my weight pretty well. All-in-all, I wouldn't recommend this scale.

I would say the plastic is kind of cheap and you have to be totally still or it will give you several weights in one session.

This scale is a great buy. There are so many cheap, plastic, disposable bathroom scales out there. This one is different. It feels heavy and well made, like it will last a long time. It is accurate, too. And the dial is large and easy to read.

You have to first touch the scale and wait a few seconds for it to actually turn on. I would have preferred the scale to be in, e.g. white or black. From the picture, I wasn't aware that it was basically clear plastic. As a result, footprints are visible.

I was looking for a scale I could leave out in plain sight that wouldn't be an eyesore like most plastic or glass scales out there and this one fits the bill. The light colored wood looks great and feels great under my feet too. So far the scale works great so I'm totally happy with it.

Could not get battery cover off to activate lithium battery. They had the smallest Phillips head screws I have ever seen and even the smallest of screwdrivers could not remove them. Scale does not work until cover is removed to remove plastic strip around lithium battery. Don't bother with this scale. I am sending it back.
