My strain-gauge bathroom scale as well as the more traditional spring-loaded one don't give me consistent readings. I could step on and off all day and never get three consistent readings. Even the range of readings fluctuates depending on the weather, positioning, stars and so on.

If your scale tops out at 250 lb and you weigh 245, expect to see inaccuracies. If you're 180 lb, the scales are more accurate and precise for that sweet-spot weight (for this example)

Now about this one:

Assembly is required. But it's minimal and well worth it.

- The four-nut install is simple if you place the column as the instructions suggest.

- Make sure you tighten and retighten with the provided tool so you don't have to do this again later. Don't use any more force than this tool allows, the nuts seem to be designed to firmly lock the base to the column.

- Even hooking up the assembly from the column to the base was designed for consumers, there's a convenient thumb-pull that brings the hook out of the column so the base can be functional. It sounds more complicated than it is.

Accuracy:

- It's easy to zero-adust with the big cylindrical weight on the left. Turn the screw one way or the other to get the indicator to float between the constraining ends.

- This is a balance beam, so you're simply balancing your weight with the counterweight. There are no springs that get weaker or change with the weather, no strain gauges that vary based on your foot's proximity to the corners.

- Here's how good it is. I drink 24 oz of water after weighing myself. Step back on and I'm exactly 1.5 lb heavier. I've never seen a bathroom scale work as well.

- If you're over 350 lb, prepare to do some math.

If you are looking at purchasing a physician's balance beam scale, you understand they are more accurate, repeatable, and durable than other types of scales and over the long run should be cheaper than replacing the regular strain gauge and digital bathroom scales every few years. You have three brand choices: Detecto, Health-o-meter, and Seca. Price isn't a consideration because careful shopping reveals less than a 15 dollar price difference between these three brands when one compares the equivalent models. Before choosing, I searched the net for reviews and information. Finding little, I contacted 7 companies which sell them (5 sold all three, 2 didn't sell Detecto) and 2 firms which calibrate & repair medical scales. I asked each which scale they would purchase for their own home and why. On to the review:

Detecto looked like a winner out of the gate. It is the only brand made in the U.S.A. However, looking at pictures I found on the net, the fit and finish did not appear to rise to the level of the other 2 brands. Additionally, no one I contacted recommended Detecto. The eliminating factor: Detecto has reduced their warranty from the industry standard 2 years to 1 year. Folks, this happens when the 2-year warranty is costing them too much money and it doesn't speak well for their quality.

The Health-o-meter brand is owned by Sunbeam and is made in China. Fit and finish are very good and it has a 2-year warranty. My parents and my brother both own Health-o-meter beam scales and highly recommended them. Additionally, none of those I contacted had anything bad to say about them. One put it best when he said the Health-o-meter vs. Seca was basically a Ford vs. Chevy argument. I do not believe one could go wrong purchasing the Health-o-meter model.

This is an extremely reliable scale just like the kind in the doctor's office. It is easily assembled & set up. The results are consistent & the scale is sensitive to 1/4 of a pound. Stop getting on and off those digital and analog scales to get a reliable reading - this one is worth every penny. I should have gotten it years ago.

Update: 6/13/2008: I am still happily using this scale without any problems at all. It is still a good match for the doctor's scale & also for my veterinarian's scale when we weigh our dog. This has helped me lose 65 lbs and keep it off.

Regarding the product itself, it is all that I expected it to be. It works fine (Except that it indicates that Im too short for my weight! LOL)

However, on a serious note, I was disappointed with the condition of it when it arrived. The shipping box had no visible signs of damage, and the packing material inside the box that forms around the product was intact and undamaged. Regardless, there was a dent in the column half way up and one of the mounting bolts that attach the column to the base was bent in such a fashion that I could not attach it.

For practical purposes, I simply repaired the displaced bolt with a pair of plyers. The dent half way up the column is a cosmetic thing I will have to live with. It is annoying to purchase something new and have it arrive blemished.

This scale is IDENTICAL to the ones you can buy at *********.com for four hundred dollars more. The markings are the same, the weights are the same, everything is identical.

This is a steal for a real medical scale.

I am not kidding, this is the same one as the medical supply houses use.

Assembly took about five minutes- they also include the little tool you need to tighten the bolts.
