The scale works great. My only issue is that mine keeps inexplicably coming on all by itself. Every time it does it beeps, so I have taken to removing the battery when I am done using it. Since I have to reconnect the battery every time I use it, it is definitely more than a little annoying.

UPDATE:

I returned the "haunted" scale to Amazon and got a replacement. It is working just fine and doesn't come on unless I actually press the on/off button.

I needed a small scale to help with selling things online, as I was getting tired of the constant runs to the post office. The low price made me a bit skeptical, but I figured if it didn't work it wouldn't be much money wasted.

However, it works great! It's got a little fold-up thing to hold items that might roll, but also has a tare if you prefer that. The only thing that I'm not too enthused about is the fact that it beeps a lot (when you turn it on, when you press a button, when whatever you're weighing stabilizes, etc), but that small annoyance is nothing compared to the convenience of having an accurate weight measurement to buy postage online.

Scale is already calibrated went sent. DO NOT pay attention to the calibration instructions that are included with the scale. Just insert the 9 volt battery and the scale is ready to use.

This is a very handy little scale. I use it whenever I ship stacks of paperwork or small packages of clothes for my business. It is compact so I can keep it out of the way and it seems very accurate. I love that I don't have to go to the post office all the time.. I just weigh my items and print labels at home, very convenient.

Scale is really handy, and works great. Doesn't take up too much room. I use it mainly for mailing 13oz or less items, so didn't need one with much capacity. I love the tare feature and the digital readout.

Nice machine!

Couldn't weigh anything under 10oz. Good for heavier items but not for pieces of clothing which I sell in my business.

It looks rather cheap, but weighs right on the nose for lbs and ounces (to the nearest 10th or 100th). Grams are different. It rounds to the nearest gram.

I've been using this extremely handy scale for about a year and have sent out dozens and dozens of packages. Indispensable tool for small eBayers. So far no complaints, and seems to be accurate enough. Sometimes the USPS clerk will spot check my pkg weight on drop off - no problems yet! it's nice to not guesstimate the weight anymore for USPS and likely ends up saving me money on shipping costs in the long run because I'm no longer overestimating pkg weights to be on the safe side. The cut off weight for USPS First Class packages is 13oz, so by using this scale I can accurately determine the best, lowest cost shipping options for my buyers when listing an item.

The small footprint takes up very little room on my desk. Battery life is great-I'm still on the original supplied 9 volt battery for almost 1 yr.
Hold feature is great for large, and irregular packages. I've only used the tare feature a couple of times but it's there when you need it. Mode lets you weigh in LBs/Ounces or Grams - Grams is especially useful for comparing and checking published weights of lightweight road bike parts and other outdoor gear.

My only tiny complaint is the phantom on/off other reviewers have mentioned, once in a blue moon but since the original battery is still going strong after a year, and this does happen so infrequently it doesn't bother me enough to worry about it.
