We bought this scale hoping that it would be as good as it looked. It is better. We love it. It is very attractive and works very well. In order to get consistant readings from it, it must be resting on a perfectly flat surface. We have large tiles in our bathroom, and as long as the scale is resting all four feet on the same tile, the readings are exactly the same if you weigh several times within a few minutes. If it was resting on more than one tile, we got different readings within a few minutes. It is easy to set up, and there is a switch in the battery compartment to change from kilos to pounds. Our experience with the purchase, delivery, and product was superb. We will use overstock.com again!
