The .5 increments are just what my husband wanted--and it's hard to find a scale today that's not .2. Easy to set up and use. It's perfect!
I like this scale very much.
Had to tinker with the 9V battery for a few minutes but it works very well.
I'm thoroughly disgusted with my Taylor scale. Got it on January 10, 2014 and it stopped working in April! The display won't read. It's black. I changed batteries and no help. I rubbed the battery terminal and got it to work long enough to weigh myself, but tried again another day to no avail. I paid $20 for this and got three months of use from it. The cost to ship it back to Taylor would probably run $7.00--plus, I'd have to hunt for a box into which it would fit and then drive 7 miles to the post office. What a hassle and why should I have to pay postage when it's their product failure?? I'm so disappointed!
Similar to another posted review, I bought a model 9856 circa Oct 2012, and it worked just fine until about a month ago (late May 13) when it began to falter. As others have stated, the scale started to go into some kind of re-calibration sequence that never ended...some sort of chip design flaw or problem, I suppose. I tried changing the battery, and placed on different surfaces, etc., but to no avail. A real letdown, since I really liked the scale...while it worked, at least. I read other reviews that say you can send it back to Taylor at your own expense ($15.00 !?) and they'll repair it, but that seems like throwing good money after a faulty product. If Taylor stands behind their product they should pay, or send me a new replacement with a better track record. I'll see if they care enough to read this and take action. Otherwise I'll find another company's product that I can rely upon!
I received this scale as a gift. It worked fine at first but after several months, it stopped working. The display just reads o's.
I only used it about 20 times.
I read the owners manual to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong but after several batteries, moving it to different surfaces and going through the calibration routine stated in the manual, it still doesn't work.
I'm totally dissatisfied with this scale. It has a 5 year warrenty but I have to pay $15 to ship it back to the manufacturer for repairs and since it was a gift, I have no receipt so they won't take it back.
The manual says "precision instrument engineered to meet highest quality standards" but apparently not all the scales are precision engineered and are not engineered to last long. They can't even last through the warrenty period. My old mechanical scale lasted 24 years before it stopped working.
We have had this scales for about 2 years. just zeros flashing across screen - we put new battery in and the same thing is happening - just zeros acrosss screen. HELP
I like this scale in some ways, but not in others.
The LEDs would be satisfactory with indoor lighting, but just weren't as bright as I would have liked for my application, which is outdoors.
I bought three of the scales. They appear to produce the same or very close to the same results: eg if something weighs 200 lbs on one scale, it measures the same on the others. That's good!
But the real downer for me was the odd way in which the scales made a measurement. I had to place the thing to be weighed on the scale, then bounce it up and down, before the scale would make a measurement.
Unfortunately, the scale didn't hold the measurement very long, before the display would go out. That made it hard to record the result.
Some of these concerns may not apply when weighing a human. But when weighing a static object at three points simultaneously, it was a
Perfect !! Does exactly what was advertised and meets our requirements to a "tee". A real bargain !!
I have scale and it decided to just stop working. I put in a new battery and when i step on it, it just displays o's.
I love the new scale,i can't wait to use it every morning before shower.My children love it,my other family members came over just to see it .The price is not bad specially if you are in a budget.Mounou79
This scale came with the battery and worked right away. I like just getting on it, seeing my weight and getting back off. I wanted something straight forward without all the bells and whistles. Shipped very fast, a wonderful store to shop with.
I am very pleased with this scale. It is very easy to read the LED display and the ease of stepping on it and weighing yourself and stepping off. No bending over! I had a Taylor scale that was 10 yrs old and it just quit. The new scale is comparable to it.
A: It can be installed by turning the scale over and locating the rectangular door on the back. Once you locate the scale, you can remove the battery door and place the battery in the slot. It requires a 9 volt battery. You will need to match the battery terminals with positive and negative.
A: Hey there Eddy1,I'm not really sure to be honest. I would recommend giving Taylor a call and seeing if they can help you with your problem. Here's the number: 1.866.843.3905 It will get you to both the technical support line and the warranty replacement line as well.Take care,Brandon
