Ho Medics 360 Bathroom Scale Digital

Eatsmart Precision Plus Digital Bathroom Scale with Ultra Wide Platform and Step-on Technology, 440-Pounds

Homedics digital scales are the most telling of the cheap quality of Homedics products.
I quit buying them myself long ago; but, friends and family who I haven't warned continue to purchase them, and to even give me some as gifts. Their scale products are the most telling of the low quality because it becomes apparent right from the start (see other reviews). Not to mention the proverbial "LO" error that happens continuously. Massagers, foot baths, sound products work about half the life span of competitive products I have purchased. My last Homedic scale gift I just through away after 3 months of usage. GIVE UP!!

I didn't read reviews before purchasing this which is not usually my style. I wish I'd read reviews first! I picked it out from the selection at BB & B. It's an attractive looking scale and it was in the lower to midrange for price. Unfortunately, this scale only lasted a little over a year on the batteries it came with...so much for "never needs changing". I can't attest to its accuracy during that time, but we were under the impression that it was working okay. However, once we replaced the batteries, it is no longer working and we bought good quality Energizer replacements. It now takes forever to settle on a weight or reads "Err" and when it does give a weight reading, it's different every time. I also tried to test the accuracy with some weight plates, but I only have a couple of small ones, so it either wouldn't register that low (6lbs) or it's broken. Either way I DO NOT RECOMMEND this scale. I have just ordered a new scale after reading reviews on ConsumerReports.org and Amazon, the Taylor 7506 digital glass and chrome scale, which has a lifetime warranty and it's only $28.99 on Amazon with free shipping, of course! Looking forward to seeing what our family actually weighs soon...

My wife and I got this scale as a wedding present. It worked just fine for 18 months. So long as you placed it on a level surface it provided good, consistent and accurate weight measurements. The problem is that it lasted all of 18 months. One day it just stopped working, displaying crazy weight numbers and even the error message OLD. Ha! Changing the batteries did not help. I even took it apart to see if something was mechanically interfering with the weight measuring components. Nope. It just decided to stop working. I would not recommend this scale unless you want to be buying another one in a year and a half.

As an aside, it's not as if my wife and beat it to death with our excessive weight. I'm about 175 pounds and she weighs something significantly less than that.

This scale looks good, but this scale does not work. Every time it receives the slightest bump, you must recalibrate.

I have taken this scale to every room in my house and received an insanely different reading.

Spend your money on a scale that works.

I purchased this scale and while it looks very nice, its performance is very poor. First, it does not measure weight accurately. It shows different weights over a period of 10 minutes, for example. Second, it sometimes does not work at all but has changing numbers. At one point the difference between the first and the second measurement showed difference of 89 lbs. over a 5 minutes period. This product is substandard, and it appears that the problem is systemic and not in my scale.

We purchased this scale from BB&B. It worked great for 6 months. Yesterday morning I stepped on the scale and the scale was displaying crazy error messages. Replaced the batteries to see if that could be the problem. After replacing the batteries and recalibrating the scale, the scale still displays errors. This scale is going into the trash. Such a waste.

Purchased this scale about 9 months ago. I compared it with an accurate 2nd scale I own and it compared perfectly. The SC 405 worked for about 8 months. At first I thought it was the batteries and purchased a new set. The scale went from bad to worse! Tried every which way to ensure the batteries fitted properly but to no avail. The weight varied from 43 lbs to 293 lbs!! Proper weight should have been around 154 lbs!! At 43 lbs I knew I could eat more Chex Mix and chocolate but at 293 lbs, I figured I best toss out the Chex Mix and chocolate! Stepped back on my 2nd scale and whew back to 154 lbs. Bottom line, don't waste your money on the Hometics scale. Stick with Taylor brand scales!

This scale worked fairly consistently for about the first three months. Then all of a sudden it started jumping all over the place, +/- 100+ lbs. I tried reinitializing the scale and without any weight on it, it reported over 100lbs. Then it didn't shut itself off, and killed the battery. This scale is definately not worth buying.
