HoMedics® Glass Digital Scale 405
We've had this scale for 8 months. It's accurate, stylish, thin, lightweight with a small foot print so that it takes up less floorspace than most others. The display is easy to read. I recommend it.

Recommended for looks but......
I selected this scale only because of the style, Clean smooth lines. After returning the first one, getting a second one and talking to a rep of the company I was told the numbers on the scale are not illuminated so you either use a flashlight or you get off scale and bend down to read numbers. I found this very odd. No one else seems to be bothered by this non feature.

Overall a good scale. Doesn't tap on as quickly as indicated. Wasn't aware of 2 lb variance, that may not be a good feature for tracking weight loss etc.

Not worth even the money
This scale looked great, and the glass and weight was nice. It felt quality for the price. But it is not accurate! Every time you step on it, it varies a few pounds here, a few pounds there.
My friend's scale is consistent every time I step on it.
I was in the store buying this scale, because the last one I bought was even worse. And had to buy this on the whim.
But I did not read the reviews, otherwise I would not have even bothered.

We really like this product. It is smooth glass on the top which helps to keep the metal part clean, which is underneath, free of dust in the crevices and potential water spot damage. We also like the looks, very modern. We would highly recommend this scale.

6 years old
I bought this scale as a newlywed and only had to change the batteries once in 6 years. Recently the scale started saying "low" which means low battery and I thought it must be broken since I knew the batteries weren't low yet. After inspection, I realized a piece that holds the battery in place had bent and my husband repaired it, however only a week later, the same piece that holds the other battery also broke (snapped completely off this time).
I bought a replacement scale this morning (from a different maker) that was a similar design but it was not as good as this one. This one is incredibly slim, light weight and stylish, while nothing has come close in design and ease of use. I always found it very accurate. I think given that it's 6 years old and it was about $40 even 6 years ago, I think it's a good deal.I'm going to return the other scale and buy this one from BB&B!

I bought this bathroom scale a little while ago. All I had to do was take it out of the box. Everything worked, no need to place batteries or remove tabs. All I do is step and instantly get my weight. I like not having to wait a few seconds for the scale to find its equilibrium like my old one did. The modern design is sleek and simple. Can look nice on any surface with almost any bathroom design. The only thing I dont like is the weight it shows on me haha!
