This is actually my favorite, compared to 2 other digital scales I have, and one I used to have, also.

The 2 problems with the others:

1) This scale has auto-off instead of an on and an off. This is good! I don't want to eat the battery by leaving it on!

2) This scale updates in real time! It doesn't wait to "settle". This is good! I can pour something, up to a target weight!

Now, it _is very small_! Great for putting in a shirt pocket... I wouldn't want to try to weigh anything bulky!

The joke's on me. I bought this to measure portions of meat that I buy in bulk. I guess I should've read the reviews. I also should've been clued in by the word "pocket". I basically just looked at the price and did a quick scan of the description and bought it.

So this was my error. Its very nice and seems to be good quality. Its just very small. I would use it to measure herbs. That's what I'm giving it 4 stars.

I bought this to weigh out coffee for roasting and brewing. Got it for $5 as an add on. Good deal at that price. Reasonably accurate, I bought a 50g weight to test it out and it weighs it out at 50.1 every time. I've not tested the weight elsewhere to know if it's the weight or the scale that is off. +.4g on a 200g batch of coffee isn't worth worrying about, neither is the ~.05g it could possibly be off per cup.

The only negative is that the pad is small for weighing larger items. I play disc golf and like to know exactly what weight frisbees I'm throwing, I need to tare out a fairly tall 'stand' to put them on but it works pretty well in spite of it's size. I use a pint glass to weigh out my raw coffee beans, the base is about the same size as the pressure pad so careful placement is important.

Overall, a great buy for 5 bucks!

The only problem with this thing is that I don't have a 500g weight laying around to check the calibration.

We use these in an elementary classroom--and they are easy to use and store, BUT when trying to teach conservation of matter they don't always read accurately.

This scale is small enough to carry around in my purse, to weigh food portions when I eat out. Given the size and units, it was probably designed for the jewelry use, but I'm using it for food. I'm tracking protein intake, and most restaurants are clueless when I ask about portion size, so this scale is essential the few times I eat out.

However, this is a tiny scale (a bit smaller than a deck of cards), which means a tiny lid/weighing platform (about 3.3 x 2.3 inches, with rounded ends). Therefore, it can be hard to fit portions of food onto the scale. Usually I can balance oblong food "just so" on a paper napkin, or in a small serving container, so first I zero out the scale (tare) with just the empty napkin or whatever, and then I add the food to get the weight. For example, a burger can be centered and balanced just right on the platform, as long as it is not too wide to hide the display. If the food is larger, or for whatever reason harder to position (e.g. loose pieces of stir-fried chicken), I carry around some small plastic bags into which I put the food for weighing (after zeroing out the weight of the empty bag). Flat but wide food can be cut in half and then piled up to fit, or weighed in pieces and then added up. If you want to weigh larger portions, obviously a larger scale will work better.

When this scale arrived, I calibrated it with a 500g weight, and it was only 3g off, and easy to adjust (who knows if the calibration weight is correct, but the various gram scales I had in the house were all within a few grams of it).

I don't use this scale that often, but the times I do, it is a useful tool for my current health kick. Although the photo doesn't show it, mine came with a "Quick User Guide" printed inside the scale lid/platform, so if you forget how to use the settings, you can refer to that.
