Does what it says, no big problems
The scale was easy to set up and is simple to use - wake it up, wait for it to say it's ready and set on. I had to adjust to standing very still because it seemed pretty sensitive (I helped myself with this by keeping it somewhere that I can steady myself on a wall). After that it works pretty quickly and the voice is easy to understand - maybe even a little loud for my taste.
Overall it does what I need it to.

Very nice scale and A+ Seller
This scale is very nice and is exactly as described by seller.
My only issue "only for me personally and might not be an issue with most",
anyway due to personal health/physical issues I have a hard time standing still
long enough for it to get and accurate reading. Once I let go of my walker
I start losing balance thus need to sit back into my wheelchair before it
reads my weight. I understand I should have thought of this before buying
but due to health issues I needed to get a heavy duty 550 lbs scale ASAP and
this was/is within my low disability budget. Other than that this scale is build
solid and functions 100% as described by the seller. Have a nice day ?

Good product, and does what I need it to do
I will never fall in love with a scale, because scales tell me things I don't want to hear. This one does so in a weird robotic voice. You can turn the voice off, but you can't freeze the display so you can read the result after getting off, so I left the voice on.
However, it appears to do what it's meant to do, and the price was good. So all in all, a satisfactory product and one I would recommend.

Great Scale, very consistent
I chose this scale because it had really good reviews. I liked that one reviewer said that no matter how many times you get on this scale (in a short time period) it shows the same weight. That is exactly how it works. It doesn't matter if I go on 2-3x it shows the same weight. The nice wide platform is really easy to stand on, without feeling like you are going to tip over because your feet are too close together. I've had my scale for a couple of months and I would absolutely recommend it. I also really like that Will Knott Scales has good customer service. After my purchase they verified I received it and wanted to make sure I was happy. I would purchase from them again & highly recommend this scale.

This scale works! My friend weighs 395 and is having issues with water retention and his weight drastically goes up and down. Managing weight with edema is critical and having a scale that works his a must! I order 2 different scales from Amazon that were junk said to weigh up to 450 and he would step on them and the display pad would just flash numbers. This scale works. I explained to this company the importance of this scale and they actually replied to me and understood the importance of my situation for my friend to have a good scale. Thank you again O W K S :)

My wife has a problem with her stomach and I had to find a way to get her weighed other than going to Weight Watchers or somewhere outside our place.
We found this scale on the internet and decided to purchase it. It is an outstanding scale, very easy to use and easy to store. My wife likes it because she does not have to travel somewhere to find out how much she weighs. Convenience is key here because she cannot stand for a long period of time and wait to find out her weight.
5 stars from my wife and I.

I treat people for nutrition therapy and weight loss. Most of the time the scale we use weighs up to 400 lbs. and that's adequate. However recently we did an intake for a 6'10" fellow who we could not weigh on that scale. We ordered the XL-550 and it was delivered in just a few days. It works fine but I haven't figured out how to stop the scale from talking when weighing a patient. I would recommend your company and this product to anyone needing a scale for the obese person.

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.

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!!!
