The Tanita Bathroom Scale looks good but isn't really accurate. I bought this scale recently to replace an old, ugly scale I had. I liked the looks of it with its large, clear digital display. It looks very nice in my bathroom and is a great replacement for what was there. It didn't cost a lot and I don't depend on it to be 100% accurate. I just us it to get a general idea of my weight. My weight fluctuates a lot (about 3 to 5 pounds per month) and I usually know when I'm UP or DOWN, but I like having a scale around to confirm. I don't expect a low cost bathroom scale to give me the exact same number as I get at my doctor's office. But I do expect it to be consistent. If I get on and off the scale 5 times in a 60 second period, a good scale would give me the same number every time. The Tanita bathroom scale does not. It's an ok product. It does it's job. I just get a little annoyed that weighing myself 5 times gives me a variance of sometimes as much as a full pound. Performance When I get on and off the scale 5 times in 60 seconds, I get a variance of up to 1 pound. That is too inconsistent to me! Durability I don't think this scale will last a lifetime. It does it job right now. I will probably replace it soon. Design It looks good. It is a good size and the digital readout is large and clear. Ease of Use How easy does it have to be. Stand on it and read the number.... Accuracy Accuracy and consistency are this scale's week points.
