The product arrived when expected and is as everyone described...nice looking, wide but not bulky with large numbers. Definately needs to placed on a solid surface such as ceramic flooring. The reason for the 4* rating is that its not quite as accurate as everyone claims. I weigh in at weight watchers once a week (their scales are expensive and extremely accurate) For comparison, I weighed myself on the Precision Plus scale on my weigh in day, in the am and pm to be sure. The scale was out 1 -2 lbs (under, so it felt good anyway). I think its close enough to keep track though.
