I bought this scale because of the price. It showed up last week, and it is about three pounds off of the scale I use at the gym/doctor's office. Not only that - it shows me frequently gaining and losing up to eight pounds at a time. For example, I weighed myself this morning, put on a load of laundry, and when I weighed myself again ten minutes later I weighed four pounds less than I had before! For anybody that is weighing themselves on a regular basis (like me, I'm dieting/exercising and weighing myself frequently to track progress) this scale is no good. Not dependable at all! Wish I had read a review like this one before I bought it - trust me it's cheap for a reason. Save your money and buy a nicer scale!! This one is junk.
