this guy that imports these used to call them digi weigh but got sued by a old company called "digi weighable" or just "digi" then went with american weigh got sued for some law that says that if the brand has american in it it has to say in equal size letters that its not made in america and now its called weigh max

so what do you think its a good deal ?

Wow- now that I actually clicked the link, that's the exact scale a cat I know has. It works fine, as long as you aren't measuring anything less than 0.1 grams. That's a good price too.

It's an old scale, but it's good.

These are also good:

I'v got that same exact scale. Works perfectly. Drop a nickel on it and it weighs 5.0g's every time. Drop a bill on it and it also weighs out perfectly at 1.0g's every single time. I payed $40.00 even for mine a couple months back.

InsatiableThirst, I used to have that one bottom auto calibrating scale made by Gram Precision Inc. Ended up trading it for 2 grams of fishscale. bleh. I admit I liked the one by Gram Precision much better because it was a little less touchy. Meaning I could have it slightly off level and it would still weigh out perfect. However both are very nice products.

i like that it reads .01 in sted of .1 mine is a .15 off but it needs a 50 gram and 100 gram to calibrate it so it will be a few days till i do that but other than that it seems to work fine

awww i found out the truth

http://www.digitalscale.com/Precision.htm

5) Generic 50 "A" (Sold as Digiweigh, US Balance & many others)

The Generic "A" digital pocket scale is really made by XCH sensor in China. It was bland in appearance and has a shape that seems to resemble the MX-50. We found the slow speed and sudden measurements a bit difficult to work with. Accuracy was about the same as the HP-50 (in some tests it was better, in some it was worse). In the lower and upper range we experienced many readings within 0.01g but in the middle spectrum we obtained readings that were as inaccurate as 0.04g. The Generic A fluctuated wildly during the temperature change tests. The biggest fault with this scale is that it doesn't register adding weights well. If you slowly add 0.02g weights to the scale, it never reads them. You can pile many 0.02g weights on this scale one-by-one and it will continue to display 0.00g. This is because the software of the scale is set to overcompensate for fluctuation. (*NOTE: with any scale small amounts of weight won't be detected, for this scale any weight lower then 0.01g would normally not be detected. However this scale wouldn't detect adding weights of 0.02g). As with all generic scales the big question is who stands behind the scale if it breaks? In this case we feel uncomfortable with the small trading companies that offer this scale under their new brand names. To understand this, you should read up on Digiweigh and US Balance. The housing is made from a flimsy feeling plastic, we could bend the cover in our hands by lightly twisting on it. This is important to note because a scale should have a rigid thick base for maximum accuracy. Otherwise the housing will flex during weighing and cause fluctuations.


this is a little old and i think the scale might have been updated a little it seems preaty accurite but i havent bought any calibration weights yet
