The best scale I have ever owned
This scale is AWESOME! - It came in just a few days - When you put it on the floor and step on it, it doesn't budge....very sturdy, but light to carry. - It is very inexpensive and high quality especially compared to Walmart scales - It is a lot of fun to have your weight read to you aloud. The voice feature works great. My kids and grandkids love it, too! - It has not read a different weight in all the times I have stood on it a like all the other scales I have owned I guarantee you that you won't be sorry if you buy this scale! I am glad I went out on a limb and bought it!

helping with long - term weight loss goals
I purchased this for a relative who has weight and health issues. He usually avoids any focus on his weight, so I was amazed when he agreed to this scale. In addition to being 300+ pounds, he has poor vision so this seemed to be the right scale for him. Not only does the scale work as advertised, it has become a tool to help him become more focused on losing weight. Instead of avoiding anything to do with weight, he is weighing himself regularly and keeping track of the loss/gain in weight. So far he has lost weight and we are actively talking healthy eating, exercise, and using the scale to keep in on track.

Great Product - Great Delivery
I received the scale four days after ordering using free shipping. The scale is everything as advertised and then some. I weigh 360 pounds and am recovering from hip replacement surgery with a subsequent hip fracture and therefore am not able to stand very well. Even though I am wobbly when standing, the scale settles in and gives me a weight. The "talking" feature makes it convenient as I don't have to look down.

I've owned this scale for about a month now and I am very pleased with it. I really appreciate the fact that when you step on it you don't have to worry about it breaking, it is very sturdy. I am a large man and have gone through two other scales that had eventually cracked from use although they were "rated" to handle more than my weight. The weight this scale displays is precisely what the scale at my doctors office shows also, so I believe it to be accurate. The bonus is the price, I was concerned that buying another low priced scale would end up the same as the first two, since using it, I have been relieved of that concern.I know this is supposed to be a scale review, but I would also like to mention that dealing with Old Will Knott was a great experience, I give their company a 5 star rating as well as this scale.

The customer service rep was very helpful and knowledgeable. I was undecided and finally settled on the My Weigh XL-440. It is very accurate and the voice readout keeps me from having to move to read my weight.

I have owned this scale about a month and think it is great. The scale is accurate (weighs exactly as my MD's scale), well constructed and the voice is easy to understand. I have poor eyesight and this works well for me. I owned another talking scale from Will Knott's prior to this but it stopped working after awhile. I was very happy to find another even better one at Will Knott Scale. Will Knott's is my go to place for all scales!

My husband weighs slightly over 400lbs and we wanted to ensure that he could weigh in without the scale being stressed. It has worked nicely. I found the voice odd at first but now it amuses me. It says hello and we say hello. It tells us it's ready and we say okay. It says goodbye and we say goodbye. Sort of a pretty amusing game. Scale seems to function well. Black color does like to look dirty easily. But that's a minor thing.

I bought this scale and love it to death. It is so perfect for me. The only thing that is hard for me is to understand what they are saying as far as the weight goes.as I am hard of hearing. I look down and see the numbers and I am fine. I would recommend this for everybody.IT IS THE BEST. Keep up the great work and Merry Christmas cause mine will be!

My father in law, who is legally blind at 94 years of age, likes to track his weight and this allows him to do it. About the only thing that would make it better is if it had some level of memory so that somewhere between a week and a month of weights could be retained.

I was more than shocked to find scales that weight over 350 pounds for under $50 but Old Will Knott Scales had many!!!! The talking feature on this scale stopped working after a couple of days. I picked it up and shook it and it worked but it was so quiet I could barely hear it. I shook it some more and it worked ok but I was so disappointed in it I shut the talking button off. Works great though.

This scale is really a wonder. I bought it for my mom (90 yrs young). She needs to weigh herself daily due to CHF. She is also hard of hearing. If the volume could be turned up it would be perfect. She adapts though and when she hears it she steps off and picks up the scale and holds it close to her eyes! The digital display is JUST big enough. So 4 STARS instead of 5 however very happy with the purchase. (I can hear it clearly no problem)

I bought this scale for my elderly mother who still lives on her own. She gets a chuckle out of hearing the voice greet her, tell her what she weighs, and then say goodbye. The scale is accurate & easy to read. She uses it on a hard floor rather than carpeting. It's a great value for the price.

I was looking forward to the scales being true no matter where I put it. First of all it needed a hard floor to put it on ,not carpet. The voice sounds like a depressed English lady (old ). It changes weight depending on where you step on. I am not impressed and wished I'd saved my money.

Perfect Scale for Sight Impaired Person
I ordered this for my 83-year old Mother who has serious eye challenges. She must weigh herself every day and was having problems seeing her "standard" scale. This was the perfect solution! She uses this every day and loves the simplicity of it. I had a great customer experience buying this for her. Their communications was top notch.

My Weigh XL-440 Bathroom Scale
I love this scale! It can not only handle a 300+lb body but also accommodate large feet and aging eyes. (Very good size digital numbers.) I liked the talking function, but my husband did not; I was very glad it offers the option to turn the sound off. I give this my highest recommendation!

I ordered the My Weigh XL440 talking scale on 7/8/2013 and I received the scale in less than the 5 business days expected. Old Will Knott has an "outstanding customer service" department!!! The operational instructions that accompanied the order was "VERY USER FRIENDLY" and I was able to start my weighing in a couple of minutes. The voice that announces my weight is clear and loud enough to be easily heard. So far, I am happy with my new scale and I look forward to the voiced announcements as I lower my weight.

I bought this scale for my husband who has a medical condition necesitating him to weigh daily. He could not read the numbers on any of the scales we owned and I found this one. Not only can he read the numbers, he doesn't have to and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to use it. It has a large platform making it stay in one place and easy for a larger person to get on and off. It weighs to the ounce (150.5) and is accurate. This is not only useful, but necessary for some medical conditions. I would highly recommend this scale over the pricier ones I have purchased. The service was fantastic at this web site.

this is the best scale I have ever owned. We love the voice talking to us when we use it. This helps keep us honest when we get on to weigh. . It makes my grandkids laugh and they think its the best thing in the house to try out when they come to visit. The large platform makes for ease of use. I like the fact that it dont take those real expensive batteries and just regular AA I couldnt be more pleased with this purchase. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an excellent scale.

So glad I bought this scale
I bought this scale because I am morbidly obese at 412 pounds and wanted to know how much I weigh so I can keep track of it and try to work on losing weight. No more waiting to go to the doctor to see how much I've gained or lost. I am thrilled with this scale. For a talking scale, it was inexpensive. I love it. It is easy to use, the display is large and easy to read, also there is no fudging on how much you weigh because the female voice tells you (without any hint of judgement about how much you weigh). When you step to activate the scale she pleasantly says "hello". She tells you "it's ready" when it si time to step on the scale and "good bye" after you have stepped off. The customer service at Old Will Knott Scales is outstanding. They followed up with me through email to see how I liked my purchase. Love it!

Awesome Scale/Awesome Company
I received my scale quite quickly. I ordered this because with eyesight not being as great as it was I wanted something that would speak my weight. This scale did - down to the ounces! I love it. I even "tested" it by moving it around the house - same weight everywhere! I even tested with holding my cat and not holding - and he weighs 16 lbs! He needs a diet! Thanks guys - great service - came quickly - emails kept me updated and in perfect shape!
