Yes, it does everything it is supposed to do. I checked against known weights for letters,
packages and books and it was very accurate. It is easy to use and operates with the adapter or
battery, which was included. BTW, a replacement battery (9 volt) is about $4.00 at most stores.
You just place an item on the scale then in about 1-2 seconds it weighs and beeps. The weight
appears on the LED face, so just lift off the item and use the number for packaging reference.
You can also push the tare button and add item to get its weight. For my needs, I just found that
having the calculated weight on the front in a big LED and a beep to tell you the weight is calculated
speeds up the process: fewer times pushing buttons and glancing to get the info. You can change the mode
to Kg.. That does come in handy for weighing items going out-of-country. For a typical e-bay sale, it is
not likely that you would exceed the 75lb. maximum: most PC items max out a little over 50Lb, so the extra
25Lb. capacity definitely helps. Finally, the included 9 volt battery worked. For intermittent use, it's the
only way to go.
As a student, who buys and sells on e-bay, this is a very high value tool. I can weight out
accurately US mail and/or FedEx/UPS packages; it is constantly being used. Just knowing how
much books weigh, is a lot of help.
To sum up, for the price you get an excellent ROI.
Would highly recommend to anyone considering a purchase.
When I received it, the first thing I noticed was that the plastic it is made of seems to be very thin. Although I have not had any problems with its construction, it seems that in order to save on materials cost and bring this item to a low retail price, this thin plastic was used. This is a reason why I use this scale with even more care.
Now in regards to its accuracy, I have noticed that this scale overstates weight by a fraction of an ounce. I found out when weighing the same items on this scale and an analog scale. Not a big deal really, but it can make you overpay for postage sometimes as you end up moving to the next ounce mark. This issue can be attributed to the scale not being calibrated and it could be easily fixed by just doing that, calibrating it...if it was an easy task of course. I thought calibration was easy, but it's not! In order to calibrate this scale, YOU NEED TO DO IT WITH A 75LB WEIGHT!!! I thought that was very inconvenient as first of all, it's not easy to find something that weighs exactly 75lbs (unless you have a dumbell of that weight at home, for example, that you can use). The other issue is that it says on the manual that if you exceed the 75lb capacity, you can damage the sensor, so you have to use something that weighs EXACTLY 75lbs.Read more ›
For example, a 5 lb dumbbell I had which consistently showed a weight of 4lbs 15oz when I tested it on my analog scale, would show a weight on the Weighmax around 4lbs 8oz, varying by any number of ounces up to +/- 8 oz each time I weighed it again. Such erratic results are not accurate enough for my purposes.
The instructions suggested calibrating the scale before use, but doing so would require exactly 75 lbs of weight to place on the scale, and it's ridiculous to expect that anyone would conveniently have something of exactly that weight lying around the house. To make matters worse, weighing something over 75 lbs could damage the scale.
It was disappointing that I ended up having to return the Weighmax, as I was hoping for a more convenient and compact alternative to my old analog scale. I'll probably just stick with the analog, but if I ever decide to get a digital postal scale again, I'll be getting one of the ones that can be calibrated with any known weight, rather than just the exact maximum weight of the scale.
