This is the second XL-550 I have purchased from Old Will Knott Scales. I bought this set of scales for my wife when hers (not an XL-550) started giving her trouble. It took her a couple minutes to realize how to use it, i.e. step on, step off, then wait until it says "Its ready" to step on and weigh yourself. She did not want to read the instructions. As I mentioned, these scales talk to you, which is good if your belly gets in the way (my problem). If you do not want the rest of the room to hear what you weigh, there is a mute switch on the bottom. I have owned the XL-550 for years with absolutely zero problems, I highly recommend it.
I like doing business with Old Will Knott Scales when buying scales, because scales are their only business. The only scales I have purchased have been the XL-550, however the rest of their products appear to be quality products also.

We really love this scale. It's fairly lightweight considering some I've seen. It's easy to use, accurate and it even comes with batteries. You won't be sorry for this purchase. I will buy from this company again.

I have had a lot of regular store bought scales die on me, so I decided to buy a sturdier scale with good reviews. This one arrived quickly and was super easy to set up (literally just take it out of the box and go). It talks to you, which is cute. The accuracy of the weight was a consideration of mine, because I joined weight watchers recently as part of this endeavor and wanted a scale that would be accurate to what I would be weighing in on that program, and it was 100% accurate. I am very pleased and would recommend this site and this scale to anyone looking for a quality product from a great retailer. The customer service here has also been fantastic.

I am so happy with this scale, it is everything I wanted. It is being used on a daily basis by the entire family, the display is large enough I don't need my glasses to read it, we haven't used the voice activation feature yet but will eventually get around to it. The scale is light weight to move around but is heavy duty enough to hold all the weight put on it. I highly recommend it.

Very Happy with my purchase
It does everything it says very easy to use, and have not one problem with it. It is so easy to use and convenient I'm surprised it doesn't tell me my weight when I just walk by it. Maybe I am so happy with it cause my weight loss is going good and it tells me what I want to hear I don't know. LOL I'm just very pleased with the the customer service as well.

Great Scale for all sizes
I bought this scale to use for our company weight loss challenge. I liked the talking function but we turned it off easily so others wouldn't overhear.After 1 month We have had a couple people comment that have came from doctors office and say the scale is pretty darn accurate. We have people using it from 150 lb all the way up to 470. Only thing I noticed is that the heavier the person the more solid the floor under the scale needs to be ( don't use it on carpet)

Great scale. Very accurate.
I ordered this scale to use in a weight loss challenge at my place of employment. We do have some employees that are on the heavier side so I had to make sure the scale was not only portable but had a heavier capacity. The wide platform, large pound capacity, and performance are exactally what we needed. I am very please with my purchase!

I have found this scale easy to use and accurate. The talking feature makes it a pleasure to use, especially for someone of my size. There is a delay from the time one touches the scale until it says "hello" , then a delay until it says "ready" , and a long delay until it reads out the weight - but it is accurate. I found purchasing from Old Will Knot to be effortless, with good feedback from the company on the purchase, well packed and prompt delivery. A good company to do business with.

I bought this scale so I could have an accurate weight at home, and so many scales do not go up high enough or have the accuracy that exists on this scale. The platform is wide enough to do an accurate weight. I don't have the talking feature enabled. The only thing I would change in this design is the display. It would be better if the numbers were just a bit bigger and bolder and contrasted against a lighter background. However, I can read the numbers OK in typical bathroom light. This scale is also accurate at the low end. I have weighed my new cat over the past year and watched him grow from under 5 pounds to 9.8 pounds, then 10 pounds so far. I am pleased to see it accurate on both ends of the weight spectrum. This scale has become my best friend because I am on the new Shaklee180 Turnaround program and so far have lost 35 pounds in just 5 weeks!!!

I was a little concerned about ordering on line, and trying to find something in my price range, but I was pleased with the response, follow through and follow up by Old Will Knott, and am generally pleased with the product.

My mom is almost 90, almost blind and almost deaf. She has a hard time. Her doctor asked her to monitor her weight due to congestive heart failure and fluid build up. I bought the talking scale in bopes that she would be able to do what the doctor asked. What a success! She can hear and underswtand the voice and loves the fact that she can monitor her weight herself. Home health care is very supportive of her ability to follow through. Thanks so much.
