It features a 5"-diameter pan, large high-contrast display, backlight, automatic tare feature, keypad calibration, and hinged protective cover and it weighs in grams, ounces, troy-ounces, and pennyweight.

Good price, not sure of quality Review by
The price was right so I purchased it. My husband and I could not properly calibrate it so we sent it back. I am pretty sure it was not user error in the calibration...perhaps just a bad scale. We returned it to HST and easily got our money back, no problems.
Works great! Review by
Came calibrated almost perfectly. It measures in many different systems. If you don't have calibration weights, find a household item with a definite weight (look up online, ex. 47g, not 47.56)
Digital Scale Review by
First off this scale is dead accurate. I find the accuracy to be +/- 0.1 g which is more than acceptable in most situations. It's also easy to calibrate, but to do this you need a 2000 g calibration weight or several calibration weights that add up to 2000 g. I was able to make my own calibration weight for the time being using a glass 600 ml beaker filled with some 0.177 zinc plated BBs until I get my calibration weights in the mail. The calibration will be successful when it says "PASS" otherwise it will keep flashing the required calibration weight. This scale can measure in grams, ounces, troy ounces, and pennyweight however I mainly use grams and troy ounces. I love the fact that is has a tare feature which has come in handy for me verifying silver coin weights with the coin being in a plastic capsule. All I need to do is take the weight of a specific empty capsule and then place the coin and that same capsule together on the scale and it can figure out the weight of just the coin. Lastly another great feature is that you can power this off of AA batteries so it makes this scale super portable. Overall this is a great scale that is accurate and didn't dry out my wallet in the process.
Must have Review by
This balance was has met all of my homeschooler's needs for her science experiments. My only regret is not finding it sooner. She is a junior in high school and we have been using it for the past 3 years.
Good for the price Review by
I was looking for a dependable balance. It appeared that the other reviewers were using this product as a balance so I ordered two. The batteries lasted one day, but I did purchase the plug-in converter (which I recommend doing). A couple of times we had trouble getting to "grams" but were finally successful.
