Finally it dawned on me and sure enough, there were two pieces of cardboard in between the scale and the base for shipping purposes. I removed those and the scale works perfectly. Another thing is that the manufacturers website says there must be a 1g minimum in order to weigh. This isn't true. It weighs from .1g up with no problems.
It really is a beautiful scale. Very accurate, I reweighed several objects and they were dead nuts. The weighing platform is 4"x4". It's not the least bit chintzy and in fact has a very pleasant display. Moreover it comes with a hard plastic case that double as weighing trays!
A new trend in coffee and espresso preparation is weighing everything - your whole beans, your ground coffee, your water, even the shot of espresso you're brewing. Weighing gives a much more accurate measurement than visual ml/oz viewing in a measuring cup or shot glass. This is especially true with espresso, given that crema can be large in volume, thus screwing up a visual measurement of the amount of liquid brewed.
This scale fits the bill, by virtue of the 2kg max weight while still resolving to 0.1g. It's not without its problems, but the price earns it 4 stars from me.
The large weight allowance allows you to put portafilters on it (then tare them out, and weigh the amount of ground coffee in the portafilter). It even allows you to brew a big 8 or 10 cup press pot right on the scale, accurately measuring the water used in grams instead of in mls (1g water = 1ml water).
The display is easy to read; blue with black letters that are readable from most normally used angles.
The tray is wide enough to hold most items I use on it, from press pots to cupping cups; it's a bit small for portafilters, but you can balance them on the scale.
TAREing the scale is very quick; startup is a bit slower, but not bad.
The price is fantastic, and earns an extra star from me just on that basis. If it were $35 or more, it would only get three stars.
Very accurate. I have some calibrated weights and it was bang on, right out of the box.
What's preventing this from being five stars?

ONE MAJOR COMMENT TO ANYONE BUYING THIS SCALE, AS NOTED IN OTHER REVIEWS, THIS SCALE COMES WITH 2 PIECES OF PACKING CARDBOARD THAT IS WEDGED BETWEEN THE SCALE PLATE AND THE BODY OF THE SCALE. IF YOU DO NOT REMOVE THESE THE SCALE WILL GIVE MAJOR MISS-READS. THE CARDBOARD PIECES ARE ALMOST UN-NOTICEABLE UNLESS YOU LOOK FOR THEM. THERE IS NO MENTION OF THESES PIECES OF CARDBOARD IN THE LITERATURE THAT COMES WITH THE SCALE.
All in all I like this scale and it suits my needs at an affordable price. I'm Pleased!
The other thing that matters to me (with scales) is the auto-shutoff. Some scales shutoff based on a pre-defined period of time (regardless of use) and others shutoff based on time from last use. This one is the latter which is what i prefer (60 secs after last use).

I noticed other reviewers had mention the cardboard and someone must have listened because it came with a warning strap around the scale, mentioning the removal of the cardboard strips...
It feels well constructed and responds in less than a second which is fast enough for me..
The lids fit tightly but not so tight as to be difficult to remove...
The calibration weights are not included but are 1kg and 2kg...Not including the calibration weights is about the only thing I can find that's a negative, but not enough for me to downgrade...
I would recommend this scale to anyone who basically needs a 4 lb limit scale with a .01 ounce or .10 gram tolerance...
