The product description is incorrect. This scale only measures in 0.5 lbs increments (clearly labeled on the actual box). These 8 oz are far different than the 0.2 oz increments claimed. They probably mistook 0.2 kg (as indicated on the box). This scale is only suitable for coarse measurements.

Also, the display is hard to read from directly above, such as when placed on the floor. It is meant to be a table top scale that you look at from the side.

If you're fine keeping the scale on a table and 0.5 lbs precision is all you need, then this is a nice sturdy scale.

When it comes to the fulfillment: the scale we received was not new. The box was marked "display" with a Sharpie and the scale had a nearly dead, visibly used battery in it.

Note that this scale is apparently only for light-duty applications. It has an "Electro-Mechanical Design" per the data sheet on the manufacturer's website and may require calibration.
The manuals for the more expensive low-resolution Brecknell models do not discuss calibration.
However the manuals for the high-resolution full-blown shipping scales do discuss calibration.
According to the manual for this model on the manufacturer's website:
"Periodically your scale may require calibration to ensure proper weighing. Calibration may be required if the scale has been improperly used by mishandling or dropping the scale. You will need an accurate 50 or 200 pound weight to calibrate the scale. If calibration is performed with a weight other than 50 or 200 pounds, it will cause your scale to weigh inaccurately."

The resolution of this scale is poor, at best.
The scale reads in 1/2 pounds only and cannot be set to "round up".
This is a problem for calculating shipping costs as they round up to the next whole pound.

The core issue is: does the package weigh 6.1 Lbs., 6.5 Lbs., 6.9 Lbs., etc.

I returned it; the restocking fee cost me a significant percent of the total.
I should have done better research, so I guess that I can't blame Amazon.
Know what you are purchasing!

Complete and utter Garbage. Battery cover would not stay closed. Hard to see the weight unless your weighing tiny boxes. Has a hold button but was difficult to use
