I really wanted a scale that was accurate and in .2lb increments because I am trying to lose 20lbs. I bought this scale because it was very attractive visually and economically. So far, I love it. It's glass top requires weekly cleaning in my opinion but I'm a neat freak so that's just me. It is also very accurate in my opinion. I compared it to the doctors scale in my gym and it's pretty identical. I also like the fact that it has a long lasting battery. Although I wish it had a back light but that wasn't a deal breaker so I am satisfied. I have seen reviews where people have complained about two totally different weights being processed but I do think it's important to put the scale on a flat even surface before weighing yourself. This could be the discrepancy that people are not paying attention to. My bathroom floor is tiled and uneven so I weigh myself in the living room because it's the opposite of that. My weight in the bathroom is 5lbs more and the weight in the living room matches the doctors scale. Anyhoo, just wanted to say that and I do think it's a good purchase, very nice looking and modern in any bathroom. Would have given it a 5 but I don't know how it will fair in the long run so my 4 is really a 5. Happy Shopping!
