Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I needed a great scale. It had to be sensitive at least up to hundredths of a gram, and I wanted the ability to weigh in a number of different units. I also wanted something that's small enough for a shirt pocket, light-weight, and accurate. In order to find the ideal scale, I carefully read the reviews of most of the scales that Amazon sells. They were mostly confusing and unhelpful, with people contradicting each other in the extreme. So, instead, I focused on the product descriptions and I picked out 7 of the best scales Amazon carries that fit my needs. Price did not matter. None of the scales were out of my price-range, so that just wasn't a problem.
I ordered 7 scales, and within a week I had them all. I went to work, scales all lined up beside each other, and I used them all. Indeed, the measurements for the same objects would vary from scale to scale. I calibrated every unit, which helped, but some were still consistently off. How to determine the most accurate...
Great little scale, stunning price, hard to pick between this one and it's brother, the ACP-200. After studying the reviews I bought both so I could review and either send back the least favored or keep them both (i'm keeping both).
How do they compare?
The size; chrome is smaller, 2 1/2 x 4 9/16 x 3/4 inches vs 2 3/4 x 4 7/8 x 3/4 (2 7/8 bumps for the hinges) volume: 8.55 cu. inches vs 10.05 cu. inches (the chrome is 15% smaller).
The chrome is nearly identical in width and height to an iphone 4 in a case, and 1/4 in. thicker, the other is 1/4 inch bigger in all all 3 dimensions.
The chrome weighs 116g vs the other is 143 w/o the pouch and 152g with. (means the chrome is 25% lighter). for comparison my iphone 5 with the case is almost identical to the acp-200 (not the chrome) at 142g.
Hands down winner is the non-chrome. The chrome is reverse LCD and you can almost always see the ghost of the non-lit...
Very happy with this scale. Accurately calibrated on arrival. The hundredths reading will move +/- .05g fairly easily (just by breathing on it) but i'm only concerned about the tenths reading and that is stable. It is solidly built (twice the weight of my last scale and same size). Nice auto-shutoff feature... its based on last activity as opposed to just shutting down after a pre-set time. Display is easy to ready and can be seen from about 20deg off center (90deg +/- about 20deg). Scale platform size is 2" x 2.5". Cover is easy to remove and replace. Uses 2-AAA batteries. Dont know about the battery life since i've only had it a week or so.
All in all, a great little scale for the money (i only give 5 stars on a product or item that has stood the test of time and i've only had this scale about a week).
