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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
-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.
Price, Display size, 2xAA Battery Power and 55lb Capacity are the main reasons I chose this model.
I bought this because it appeared to have a larger display than other scales do and the fact that it uses only two AA batteries. I forgot about buying batteries at the 99c store as name brand alkaline 9V batteries are usually quite expensive and I am not about to plug SIX AA batteries into a scale which sees little use. I'll just throw in a couple of rechargeables when the included AA's expire.
The display is large and bright. Numerals are about 3/4 inch high.
Took to USPS APC and at 10 lbs weight, my scale was reading 0.2 ounces less than the high quality USPS APC scale. Was right on at 4 ounces, so there is little difference between the two scales, certainly not enough to worry about.
AC adapter does not appear to be UL listed, so maybe keep this in mind and maybe unplug it before any extended period, it's your call on that one.
I'm super glad that I bought this scale.
I DO SEE THIS MODEL LISTED ON THE MEGA AUCTION SITE, as well as some cheap, thin scales, but in reality the thin scale models display appear tiny.
This backlit display and everything about this scale rocks! Like everyone else, I'm running around weighing everything in the house!
By the way, the resolution is 0.01 lb, and with 16 ounces per lb, that gives us a resolution of 0.16 ounces, so while I would like the advertised 0.1 ounce readability, the actual display changes every 0.2 ounces. Not bad at all for a 55 lb scale. I don't expect USPS or UPS to come knocking down your door for an error of 0.1 ounce (half of the 0.2 ounce display resolution).Read more ›
