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. 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. They are great scales and should serve the needs of anyone for many years to come.

I run a gym program, where accurate weight is important and where the scale receives moderate to heavy use. There are many scales on the market, of course, and we have tried several electronic and dial step-on scales over the years. They are invariably fast and easy to use, but repeatability is not a strong suit on any of the machines we have tried. The step-ons are accurate to one or two percent, but that is not good enough for our programs. The Seca 700 is a very accurate and well-built scale and is not overly expensive, given its excellent performance. It was easy to assemble. We removed the height rod and attached it to a nearby wall, where it looks great and is very useful to us. We could not be happier with this scale.

The Seca 700 Beam Balance Scale provides the accuracy and repeatability needed for serious monitoring of gains and losses. Make sure you have your morning coffee after you're A.M weigh-in else you will record an additional 1/4 pound. It really is that accurate. Perfect for monitoring weight changes, well constructed to provide years of accurate readings for small and large folks alike.

I've purchase this scale few months ago. Although I'm not basing my comparison based on my experience with other similar and comprable scales, I can attest that it's worth every dollar I spent and here's why:

1. Very accurate. No matter how many times you step on it, it will remain consistant. You can't get tha with floor scales.
2. Very easy to assemble. I took me 10 minutes to put it together. Although, they don't have instructions for the hight attachement.
3. The price @ $220 was reasonable. God knows I spent that on the last 3 floor scales.
4. I contacted the manufacturer to confirm the warranty based on the many conflicting reviews I read. I found out that the warranty is indeed 5 years. Call or e-mail them to make sure. I know I did.

Here are the draw backs:

1. The size is rather larger than I expected. Therefore, if you have a small bathroom, you'll need to take that into consideration.

Overall, I think it deserves a solid 4 stars.

I've had this scale (pounds only, with height rod) for about a month now and I love it. For a long time, I was going back and forth on whether to go digital or balance beam. I'm so glad I went with the balance beam. Once you develop your technique with it, you can get a reading accurate to within 1/8 of a pound or less in about 30 seconds and that measurement will be perfectly repeatable. A digital scale may give a reading faster, but it will almost surely vary plus or minus 1/8 of a pound or more per reading. I'd rather weigh myself once and have absolute confidence in the number than hop on and off a digital scale repeatedly, never really trusting the result.

The scale is marked with 1/8 pound increments. If you have good lab technique (that is, if you're familiar with the practice of estimating the next degree of precision off an analog intrument's increments), you can actually read this scale down to the ounce. In this fashion, I can easily detect the difference in weight when holding or not holding a toothbrush. It is *that* accurate.

One note about how to use it: Judging by the reviews, a number of owners don't seem to understand how to use the scale with its flattened black indicator and black alignment platform. The design is absolutely top-notch. Once you're close to balancing (say, within a pound or two), lightly pinch the indicator and the platform with your thumb and forefinger so that the indicator's level with the platform. Then quickly and smoothly unpinch your fingers, releasing the indicator: if it rises, your scale's weight setting is too light; if it falls, it's too heavy. Adjust the balance beam and pinch the indicator level with the alignment platform again.
