Once I received the scale, I found a few disappointments - one is minor, but one is major enough to render the scale unusable for my needs - and since I live in Canada and ordered it to a US address, it just isn't worth the time or money to return the product - so I'm stuck with a $40 lemon - but I do want to make potential purchasers aware of a fairly glaring design problem with the scale:
The display is NOT READABLE from any angle above the scale - you have to actually bend down and get eye level with the scale to read the blue display. If you stand above the scale, or even in front of the scale looking down (as most would, if the scale is on a countertop), all you see is a blank blue display. The manufacturer is using a LED display that has very poor viewing angles.
It is a design flaw on American Weigh's part because they angled the display on this scale - if the display was flat and facing upwards, you'd probably be able to read it no problems. But because it is angled 45 degrees, reading from above shows the exceptionally poor viewing angles this cheap display has.
To use it, everyone in my workspace has to bend down so their heads are at counter height to read the display.
There is also one other minor problem - the scale seems to "float" the weight a bit before settling, especially with heavier items. It can take as much as 5 seconds for the scale to "settle down" at the final weight when I'm doing the portafilter / coffee weighing.
I do not recommend this scale.
This is what happened with this scale; every 10.0 g would read as 10.1 g, 20.0 g would read as 20.2 g, etc. While the scale is very precise, it required calibration directly out of the box. Fortunately, this scale has a calibration feature. Unfortunately, it requires I have 3 calibration weights: a 2000.0 g, a 1000.0 g and a 500.0 g, which I don't have. But hold on to your hat, there, Curly Sue! Surprise, surprise! They offer a set of calibration weights (and for no paltry sum). I think I'll just compensate for the difference, as I said, it is still precise, I just hope the rest of you received properly calibrated scales. 3 stars.
The reason I rated this a 4/5 is because it is a bit laggy to bring up the weight. So it takes us plenty of tries till I get the weight right. However, if you are weighing like food or laboratory items then I doubt it would be a nuissance to you.
I really like that you can use an A/C adaptor instead of batteries. I just looked in a drawer with some old ones until I found one that worked (I've seen them on Amazon and eBay for dirt cheap too). So I would suggest picking one of these up as well, and unless you plan to keep putting it back into the box after use (which is a really snug fit) you might want to get a case/bag/sleeve for it to avoid damaging it.
Cons: Takes 3-4 seconds to settle to a new weight, that weight can vary from measurement to measurement by up to 0.5 grams, and I had to tape the battery compartment closed to make it stay shut.
I would not buy this again. I did not return it because it was an emergency purchase to replace my 10 year old scale when it died and it did see heavy use right away while I ordered another scale. Very low quality.
I'll probably use this in the future to weigh mechanical parts. I tested it by weighing coins, 5 quarters weigh exactly one ounce. I don't think I'll ever use the pennyweight mode and will rarely if ever use the Troy ounce mode, but it's nice to know they're there.
If you're thinking about getting a mass to calibrate this scale, the instructions call for using a 2000g mass but only if the readings are inaccurate. Like I mentioned above, I tested it by weighing multiples of 5 quarters to make sure they came out to even ounces.
