The SC-540 is a very light-weight product, can be easily moved around. Large lettering to see your stats clearly. It shows you what your last reading was when you turn it on. Only complaint: you have to read the stats very quick and know what the numbers mean because it flashes on for 1-2 seconds with 2 sets of 5 indexes on each screen. (whew, all in one breath!). You also have to be barefoot with your feet slightly moist to get your readings, so be ready to stand on some cold stainless steel for about 10 seconds!

There is a reason so many low reviews, so no need repeating. This thing stopped working very soon despite countless attempts at resets, batteries, etc. Pathetic that a company would let so many lemons get to customers.

Will NEVER buy another Homedics product.

Prior to purchasing this scale, I had a cheap 25 dollar one that only checked body fat. Now I know my body fat wasnt 17% because the scale at school said it was around 8%. Since then Ive lost weight but my old scale still said I was around 15% body fat.

I decided to purchase a new scale because the old one eventually broke. This thing works amazingly! It is as accurate as the one at the University as well. Id reccomend this scale to anyone who is trying to work towards their goals of losing weight and dropping body fat.

The extra features are a bonus to an otherwise wonderful piece of equipment.

I purchased this scale about a week ago. I was very excited that it measures not just weight but fat, water, muscle mass and bone mass. Took it home very eager to see what it had to say, I got my weight (wasn't happy with the number I got, but that's my issue). The scale was accurate. Then I got an Err msg for all the other measurement areas, so I tried everything the booklet said, to no avail. Thinking it was broken, I asked my son to try, and it worked great for him, so I tried again & still got the Err msg. Asked my other son to try, again, it worked great, everything came up. I tried all kinds of things, but it still doesn't work. I think it might be a technical flaw. Both my sons are under 200 lbs and all measurements came up without a problem for them. I, on the other hand am over 200 lbs. and believe that there is an issue with weight vs. other measurements. Homedics should take a look at it because everyone in my household under 200 lbs gets their readings without a problem. I think I will keep the scale for them, also, it gives me incentive to lose so that I too can get all my measurements.

My husband and I did not purchase this through Amazon, we got it at another store that had dozens of bathroom scales so we could try them. This scale is the ONLY one that gave us the same reading each time we moved it, including moving it from their low-pile carpet to the linoleum. Others fluctuated by as much as 6 pounds... ridiculous. Not this beauty. I can weigh myself now without wondering if the reading is just how I stepped on it or the angle it's at etc. LOVE IT!

After having this scale for 1 year (like another reviewer i just saw) i am almost positive it's out of whack. I didn't realize until a couple of months ago that it has memory. It will weigh the same twice in a row, no matter what. Fine, I can weigh myself multiple times. But in the last few days, it seems like it just is not right, like the weight is going up (when I'm on a VERY strict diet and KNOW i'm going DOWN). This isn't a vanity thing... I know it's off because sometimes I weigh myself at night before bed because I know I'm about 2-3 pounds more than I will be the next morning. And in the morning, it's only saying about a .6 difference. It will give me up to a 1.5 pound variance if i step on it multiple times. Not good when I need to know every single .2 that i've gained/lost while on this diet.

I never used this scale for the body fat features b/c that's never accurate without medical grade equipment.

Maybe after a year it just gets de-calibrated? I am pretty sure I can't lose inches while gaining/maintaining weight. I am not lifting weights or doing anything that involves building muscle. It's just weird. I ordered a different scale and I plan to compare for a couple days.

I bought this scale to replace a regular scale so I could keep track of my body composition. The scale is not consistent. It reads the same exact weight for days while my old scale says I've lost a couple pounds. To check its accuracy I created a new user with my age and height, and only then did it tell me I lost weight. If I can't trust the weight feature of this scale, how can I trust that the other readings are accurate?

Great size and durability
This is the perfect scale to keep me on track for my weight. The scale is accurate and simple to use. I just step on and voila! no more tapping and tilting and all that nonsense. Real technology that works literally as soon as you step on it. I love the blue LCD against the sleek black exterior. We keep this in our bathroom right between the shower and the sink and we have enough space to stand while comfortably keeping our weight in check. I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
This scale is VERY accurate. I have gotten on at off multiple times just to see if it would read differently. It is always the same. I love this scale. Best one I've ever had! Looks nice too.
