OK, but not great
on June 19, 2014
Scale seems to be pretty accurate, but I'm not a huge fan of the design. Prior to this I used the Balanzza Digital Compact Luggage Scale, and while the weight might have been slightly off at times (I just learned to always leave a buffer of 2-4 pounds, just in case), I loved the design way more. I'm 4'11" and petite, and while I can lift heavy objects with proper grip, the TINY and ANGLED handle on this thing makes it difficult for me to pick it up with two hands (unlike the Balanzza, whose slightly larger and horizontal grip design DOES allow me to pick it up with two hands easily). I've tried to pick it up with two hands, and sometimes I can do it when my luggage isn't too heavy, but whenit's tipping 50 pounds, it can become an issue to try to lift it with my wrists at an angle. (see how the black plastic on the sides are angled, that's not a very conducive position to lift from.)
So while the Balanzza scale was off at times (it may just have been old, or I got a defective one) I prefer just rounding my luggage weight up a couple pounds, than to be UNABLE to even LIFT the dang thing in the first place, as is the case with this scale.
