    I got this one for 10.73 from Dealextreme with shipping included. Works great. I also bought a small tabletop digital for less than 20 bucks for weighing small parts. They have great service and you can't beat the price.

    I've been thinking about getting one of these. Any idea of how accurate it is? Have you been able to compare the weight it gives to another scale?

    I've got the same one, not bad at all for the money. It's not as nice as the Ultimate Support one as you can't clamp it in a workstand, but it definitely is consistent. Even if it craps out on me in a year or two it's worth the 11 bucks I spent on it.

    Dealextreme products may not seem as such deal once you get it (cheap stuff). Also they will not publish critical product reviews. Since they are oversees it is not worth returning anything.

    However the scale is fine but you can't hand hold it as the ring handle is too small and would rip off your fingers for heavier stuff.
    What do I know, ask the "experts"!

    I put a hook in the ceiling of my workshop to hang the scale from.


    I won't argue about Dealextreme selling cheap stuff, and it always takes them 2-4 weeks to ship my orders. But you can't complain about the price.

    Yes, I can...no excuse for products that you end up not using.

    What did you have problems with?

    I have had one poor quality LED so far (have bought 10), but that's not bad when they are 50-100% cheaper than other places.

    I suggest that you read the product reviews which were never published.

    The resolution is +/- 20g & 0.2 lbs. It compares well to my digital bathroom scale, but that might not be very accurate either. Also, just because mine is accurate doesn't mean the next one will be. A random manufacturing process can still produce a few good products. You would need to collect some more data to establish capability & consistency.

    I figured for the price, it was worth a chance. I've had it about 6 months & only used it twice.
