I have recently started selling things on e-Bay and while I am happy every time I make a sale, it's gotten to be a real tiresome and time consuming task to package and mail things. First I have to pack my box, then take it to the US Post Office to have them weigh it, come home and print the label from e-Bay/PayPal with the correct weight on it, and then take it back to the Post Office again. That's two trips to the post office for every day I sell/mail something.
I've longingly eyed the postal scales at the Post Office(as I stand in the long waiting line) for $39.99, but felt they were too expensive. Maybe the Post Office scale is perfectly accurate down to 1 oz(this one is 2 oz at low weights--displays 1 decimal point for ounces and rounds up), but I don't need that level of exactness. I always need to add an ounce or two on anyway for tape, a little extra packing peanuts or bubble wrap and maybe even a freebie that I may add at the last minute.
This scale is perfect for everyday use. It's pretty small which I like and doesn't weigh a lot, yet it feels and looks well made and durable enough. Didn't need to calibrate mine. It was exact right out of the box.(Checked 5 items against the scale at the Post Office when they weren't busy). I mailed about 20 small to medium boxes in the first 3 weeks and they were all spot on. I've used it to mail over-sized letters, packages 15 lbs and under and also when I needed 10 oz. of broccoli for a new recipe we were trying out.
So far this is a great home scale at a reasonable price. It's not complicated, very easy & intuitive to use. And it's saved me an extra trip to the Post Office every day which is 30-45 minutes to spend doing something else, plus gas savings. With 2 kids away at college I'm always packing up something to send them. This has made it that much simpler and the kids are actually getting more "goodies" from home because I have extra time now.
I bought mine through EZ SELL for $17.59 and just wish I would have bought one sooner and made my life a little easier.
What you need to know:
It has an On/Off button.
The LCD readout is bright and the numbers are large and easy to read.
It has a "Hold" button so you can still see the weight of the package after you've removed it from the scale.
(especially useful if package is large and covers over the weight display)
It has a "Tare" button so you can weight an empty container and then have the scale display only the additional weight of the contents.(if you need this)
The "Mode" button allows you to switch between pound:ounce, decimal pound, kilogram:gram, decimal kilogram.
All the buttons are clearly labeled.
Has an auto time off of 2 minutes in case you forget to turn it off.
Flip back top allows you to weigh items that need to lean on something.
It runs on either 2 AA batteries included(if you want to move it around easily) or an INCLUDED AC adapter.
Handles weights between 0.2 oz and 55 lbs.
10 year limited manufacturer warranty
The PS-25 has a maximum capacity of 55 lbs and a sensitivity of 0.1 oz (minimum capacity is 0.2 oz). The scale comes pre-calibrated and I tested it with a calibration weight that I already had and it seemed to be in perfect calibration. Note: If you want to manually calibrate the PS-25, yourself, you will need a 10 kg calibration weight. Such a large calibration weight is usually expensive. The cheapest one I could find is by the same manufacturer (AWS) and cost US$99.99 with free shipping which is almost 5 times the price of the scale, itself.
The PS-25 arrived with the platform uninstalled. Installation was easy---just align the six mounting studs to the mounting holes on the metal sub-plate and carefully push the platform onto the sub-plate until the studs are fully pressed into their mounting holes. The included user manual did not describe this but it was very easy to figure out. If you have any questions, just refer to the photo of the assembled scale in the manual. The PS-25 can be powered by either two AA batteries or an AC adapter. Both were included. The batteries were pre-installed and all I had to do was remove a clear plastic insullation tab from one end of the battery compartment to activate the battery power.
The PS-25 worked very well. It is fast and sensitive. The LCD readout is bright and easy to read. The features work very well: It is easy to change units (kg/g, decimal kg, lbs/oz, decimal lbs) with the "Mode" button or zero a tray with the "Tare" button. The "on/off" button made it easy to immediately turn the scale off without waiting for it to time out. A "hold" button on the side made it easy to freeze the value on the readout so you can weigh an oversize package, "hold" the value, remove the package and its weight is still visible for easy reading afterward. The top of the scale platform is hinged at the back and opens to form a backstop so you can vertically lean an oversize envelope (like a Priority Mailer) onto the scale for easy weighing.
Having a wide-range scale that goes from 55 lbs to 0.2 oz with an accuracy of 0.1 oz, runs from either battery power or a provided AC adapter, and can be calibrated by the user is awesome for this price (US$20.99). You can use it to weigh most anything from postal letters, medium parcels and packages, to food portions in the kitchen. It includes a 20-year warranty from the manufacturer, AWS. This PS-25 is the second AWS scale that I've purchased (I also have a small AWS-100) and the PS-25 seems to offer excellent value. I'm very satisfied with it and highly recommend it.
-1.9oz. to plus 2.1 oz.
How can you weight anything if won't zero out??? I suspect the dampering function is non existance or defective.
JULY 24th - UPDATE.
To my amazement AWS saw this review and contacted me by email. They advised that they would warranty this item for ten years and requested I send it back for a replacement. - FANTASTIC! Great Company and thanks AWS for the follow up.

In fairness I was offered a refund but this should not be necessary - if in doubt ask what sort of adapter you will receive.
