Works well... But get the black version
Like the other commenters here mentioned, the etchings are a bit hard to read if the light is too bright. You have to angle it so the light doesn't shine directly on it.
But the more troublesome issue is that the indicator needle is too long. The gradation markings are divided into 3 regions [ 1-20gm with 1gm markings ] , [ 20 - 50 gm at 5gm markings ] and [ 50 - 100 gm at 10 gm markings]
When in the first region, the 1gm markings are short and the needle completely hides them so you cannot see the actual marking at which the tip of the arrow head has come to rest. This is a bit of a problem because you then have to guess roughly, so the 1gm markings lose their efficacy.
The black version of this scale doesn't have any of these issues.

Ounce scale markings faint
The ounce scale markings are so lightly incised that it is almost impossible to read them.

Great scale for a tiny price
I bought this scale for my grandson, so he could use it to do a science project. It arrived immediately and I am delighted with it! Perfect size for his project.

We needed a small scale to weigh envelopes. This is perfect - very small so it doesn't take a lot of space to store, excellent price, and it is perfect for our postage weighing needs.
