Notes from the Community

Like one of the other reviewers, our ring pro doorbell worked well for 30 days and then kept disconnecting from the wi-fi. Following troubleshooting through the app, we performed a hard reboot which got the ring back up and running…temporarily. Every morning for a week, we did a hard reboot (not recommended by the way) and every night that thing disconnected from the wi-fi between 10 pm and midnight. So contacted Ring customer support. The first person we spoke with was not super helpful and I was convinced that he was just giving me a run around. But we called back and got someone different…way more helpful. Sent email pictures and instructions to help us locate the doorbell transformer. Ours was on the side of our electric panel and was a 16/15 V. Tech support person suggested upgrading to a 16/30 V. We did and so far so good. The Ring doorbell instantly fired itself back up after installation of the new transformer and has not disconnected from the wi-fi since. Heres the link to the transformer we got:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GND8RMQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Cliff notes*Its great assuming your doorbell transformer meets Rings voltage recommendations, your wifi signal strength is adequate, you properly configure motion detection settings/alerts and your internet connection speed is decent. Video quality is adequate but not great. Its good enough to see what is happening at your door.*We have a couple security cameras already but they are wired to an NVR recording box and the notifications are so slow or dont even send that I cant really rely on it for real-time notifications.For a while Ive resisted the notion of paying for surveillance when I can just get a cam with built in SD storage and a nice app like the Wyze cams (which I have inside and love) but having motion and video alerts and footage that cant be stolen or storage get corrupted and a well made phone app is worth $3 a month. I also like that if I decide to add more Ring cameras I can add as many as I want with the 10 dollar plan. Take notes here Nest.As for the doorbell itself, install was straight forward. I did have to upgrade my transformer for this. I installed the Endurance pro 24v unit. It was only a few bucks more than the 14v devices which apparently are the bare minimum Ring recommend. I figured that the extra voltage gives me some headroom to add a smart thermostat if I decide to do that in the future and after discovering how much of a pain it was to access my doorbell transformer in the attic, Im glad I only had to do this once. Make sure you locate yours before deciding on this model doorbell or the Ring 2 which would have been at least an hour or two shaved off the install time.Once I setup the motion detection zone, basically all false positive alerts are gone. I have the motion detection setting in the middle of the 5 settings. Lowering it doesnt detect the postman at the mailbox despite it being in the motion zone.Notification on my phone is instantaneous. I tested while walking up to the door and it had notified me and I had pulled up the app before I even got to the door both when connected to my home wifi and when on LTE. The remote chime installed without any issues as well.Speaking of home wifi, this seems to be a big sticking point for some owners. I used an android phone app to measure signal strength at my door and it was around -60db (the closer to 0, the stronger the signal). As a network engineer who has implemented numerous small business and commercial wifi installations, for reliable video streaming, I would say if your signal strength at the door is -65 or closer to zero, youre good. If its higher than -65 like -70 or -75~80, I would strongly recommend investing in upgrading your home wifi with a decent mesh setup like googles wifi, Orbi or EERO mesh. This will allow you to have a wifi access point closer to your door offering a much stronger signal for the doorbell to connect to. Wifi range extenders are hit or miss. Theyre less expensive than upgrading to a mesh setup but those have to piggyback off your existing wireless instead of just being a part of it and is generally more trouble than its worth for the average user to setup.The final piece of this working well is your internet speed both upload and download. If you are in a rural area with less than a 10 Mbps connection down and less than 2 Mbps upload, you will probably not have the best experience as this thing is both having to upload/stream video data to Rings servers and your phone is having to stream/download it from their servers. Rings video is not that high of bitrate (quality) but still needs to stream that data to their servers before you can even download/see it.If your ISP is metered, you need to be aware that the doorbell is constantly sending video footage. Mine has uploaded 600 megabytes of data in 4 days. At that rate, it will transfer about 4.5 gigs of data in a month. If your data is capped, be sure that you have the headroom to allow the doorbell to stream video footage. FYI it needs to stream this because if something is triggered, that portion of the stream is probably flagged as something you should see and it snips the motion detection part of the stream and sends it back to you. This is why you see your activity video and at first nothing happens and then you see whatever it is that triggered the motion alert. It was recording before it actually saw something move.The only real gripe I have is that sometimes when you open the app to view an event that just got recorded, the app will say that its processing and not available to play yet. Bought a refurbished Ring doorbell from Amazon. Installed and it worked on and off for a week. Then without warning it completely shut down. Called Ring Support and found out that the MAC address was not provisioned correctly, resulting in a non-functioning unit.Ring Support did immediately ship out a brand new unit (not refurbished) which is not working properly.5 stars to Amazon and Ring Support for fixing the issue, but the initial product gets 1 star. nothing on this thing worked as advertised. low voltage oh? replace transformer, disconnect rear door bell, buy interior chime bypass kit, buy replacement rechargable door bell chime. oh wifi weaj? buy wifi extender! it was never ending. calked tech support. dismal. first tech promised to get back to me after she requested i send her pictures. never heard back. found out from second tech that she did nothing with my issue! i also bought a first gen. battery powered one for back door… no problems with that one… hmmmm… Worked great for 30 days then will not stay connected to WiFi and customer was no help. Dont recommend product Ring apparently has two versions of the Ring Doorbell Pro. One which I received is the older model and is prone to burning out when connected to a low power doorbell transformer. I would say stay away from Ring doorbells if you do not have an upgraded transformer. They burn out in a few weeks and Ring will not ship you a new one, warranty doesnt cover that type of failure. Im going with the Nest Doorbell instead. I bought this simply be able to know whats happening around the kids…I went to the Doorbell Pro as I wanted it hardwired so I never had to deal with batteries. If you have an already wired doorbell, then be sure to buy the correct transformer to insure it gets proper voltage.I am going to buy one soon for my mom who lives alone, so I know intercede if someone tries to cold call her (which has happened) so that I can answer the door for her…indispensable piece of mind Overall good buy. Sometimes the video just takes to long to show up on my phone, even right near my router. In general this device has worked very well.

Notes from the Community

I tried this mascara recently. Although I naturally have long lashes. It helped make them longer, and fuller. I could honestly say that this 4d fiber mascara is M.A.S.T.E.R.E.D the science of mascara. It not only added the volume I needed, it separated my lash strands, elongated them, didnt burn my eyes and stayed on all day. FINALLY! Im very excited that I found THE mascara for me. Its been a long time coming. Directions are easy, doesnt take much time to apply, and stays on all day. I. Love. This. 4d Mascara. I originally purchased it to just try a fiber mascara and possibly not have to mess with strip lashes anymore. My package arrived on time, I couldnt wait to try it. Also I didnt even curl my lashes and this mascara lifted them and gave them a beautiful curl. The fiber mascara looks great for evenings out and special occasions. My favorite thing about this 4d mascara is that I can wear just the magnifying gel and get beautiful longer lashes with more volume, great for everyday makeup. Definitely recommend for now and will update later on if anything happens. Brilliant, the best mascara Ive ever used, its not quite like the girl pictured but its still the longest Ive ever got my lashes, cant fault it. Really happy with this, the first time I used it I was shocked at how gorgeous long and fluttery my eyelashes looked. The more layers I added the better they were..soo much fuller and longer. Product very easy to use and a great velvety black formula. The brush is a decent size not too big, the fibers go on easy and dont flake. Just cant believe how long my lashes are, they look like extensions. Will definitely buy it again. This is the first time I ordered 4-d mascara, and I was skeptical about it. I was not sure what it is about. It is basically a gel mascara with fiber lashes. You applied the gel mascara first as a glue, then the fiber, then again the gel to ensure they stick on your lashes. Yes, it takes some practices to apply it correctly, but i think this mascara gives you what it needs. It has a step-by-step instruction and numbering in the product, so it makes the application and practice much easier.First time I applied it, it was kinda messy, but after several trials and errors, I think I kinda master it (ha!). This mascara is waterproof, and from my experience, as long as you are not rubbing your eyes, this ink stays pretty long (about 12 hours). You do need a good eye makeup remover after to clean it up, and be careful when you clean your eyes, make sure all the residue (the tiny fiber lashes) gone from your eyes. Otherwise, it might irritated you if it got into your eyes.I have a short and thin eyelashes, with this mascara, it makes my lashes much look thicker and little longer.Overall, I am very satisfied with my buy, and will highly recommend to anyone that looking for good 4-d mascara. Oh, their customer service, Judy, is really great. They take customers satisfaction greatly! My lashes look amazing. Separate my lashes No clumps. No false lashes needed. Honest the best Iv used. Will continue to buy this mascara. Another reason that I love this Love this mascara so much is, even though its waterproof it is easy to remove! I have really sensitive eyes so I put it on one eye before going to bed and it was brilliant woke up no black eyes, and eye was not at all sore , defiantly recommend no more extensions for my eyelashes :+1:🏼:blush: TOTALLY RECOMMEND ! It makes my eyelashes look fantastic! I was out of the state when I purchased this, and once I got home, my mom commented on my lashes and she said noticed they looked different and that she loved them! I went to the beach and wore this mascara and it stayed on for the entire time I was swimming when I wasnt wiping my eyes to remove the water. And even then, some of it came off. And after I got out, I was worried I would look like a raccoon, but there was nothing under my eyes at all! I also sobbed at one point while wearing this, and you couldnt tell at all. They didnt clump, or go down under my eyes. Its like it never happened! Now I have read a comment that mentioned how she by accident bought the waterproof mascara when she meant to buy the normal and said she couldnt get it off for three days. So know, if you buy this mascara, you will need a waterproof makeup remover, and you will be just fine. You might have to work a little hard at it, but it still comes off! In short, I would highly recommend this to anyone who cries a lot, wants to wear makeup while swimming, or lives where it rains! Yall… IT WORKS!!!! its the best mascara Ive ever used :-) my lashes are real! I bought this b/c it has so many 5-star reviews - absolute garbage and total waste of money.


Vont 2 Pack LED Camping Lantern, Super Bright Portable Lanterns, Must Have During Hurricanes, Emergencies, Storms, Outages, Original Patented Collapsible Camping Lights/Lamp (Includes Batteries)

See Price


Description

Notes from the Community

Note: Requires 3 AA batteries.Pros:- Surprisingly lightweight for the size.- Feel solid; not cheap-o China plastic.- Bright: Theyve packed in some many LEDs its ridiculous how bright this thing gets.- Versatile: I hang this and also simply put it on the table like regular lantern.- Low-profile: It folds up compact and is black (not an annoyingly loud color). It looks almost tactical.- Easy: Its so easy to turn on. Simple open it up and bam its on (see video). No need to fumble in the dark for a tiny switch or button.Cons:- We had a cabin fire and I threw this out the window to break the glass so we could escape. It got lost in the bushes, and now I am saddened that my lantern is missing. This has been a test to see if youve read my review this far. If so, congratulations. I owe you lunch. And I am sorry for lying to you just now. I cant say enough good things about these mini L.E.D. lanterns.When I rate a product, one of the most important criteria is, Value For The Dollar.These lanterns certainly deliver.They are light, compact and very bright.There are others on the market for a little less and some for a little more.My decision in purchasing these was that they were plastic. No rusting of the base or the body.The batteries seem to last forever.They are bright enough, that if you lock your eyes on them, your vision will get a little blurred.At roughly $7. a light, I feel I got great value for the dollar.I did read some reviews on other brands and read comments about some of the ones with the metal bases, rusting up after contact with moisture.😎 JS SAYN We are campers. These compact, easy to use lanterns are ideal, especially for their price. For such a little laterns and not many batteries, these put off a good amount of light.. I suppose due to the led bulbs that are used in them. The hanging feature is great as well. We could place this on our picnic table or have the option to hang from the interior hook built into the roof of our tent. It provided plenty of light for us to take care of before bed things. These are a great addition to our camping bins. Shortly after we arrived home our house power had gone out, we grabbed one of these and were no longer sitting in the dark until my husband could get our generator going. I may buy a couple more to keep around the house.. much better than a flashlight in those situations, as they are directional light and these light up a room quite well. Insanely bright! Perfect for camping. Really small and light weight, I dont think there is one thing I would change about these. Picture is of one open and one closed next to a normal sized playing card. Decent brightness and very rugged design. I plan to use these as backup light when power goes out (for two to three days at a time) and for camping. This is designed and built for room lighting, not reading. Its a sufficient light to get around a campsite or a room, its good for eating. Many lights are so concentrated, so bright, that they ruin a campsite. These are slightly less bright than our Coleman propane light, fitting well with our intended use. I bought 3, 2 packs of these for Christmas gifts, everyone loved them and they all worked perfectly.I (suggested) to those I bought them for to use them in the backs of their camper shells and non lighting trunks so they can see at night or use in an emergency.I was super happy with the quality for the price. As a almost daily Amazon customer I rely heavily on the reviews and consider myself a very picky consumer. I highly recommend these! I ordered these lanterns in preparation for hurricane Matthew. Thankfully, they were not needed, but I will be glad to have them if I should ever need them for a power failure or for future camping trips. They came well packaged, and require three AA batteries to be installed in the bottom of the lantern. The battery installation was easy and required no tools. The laterns are small and light and seem sturdy. They have two metal handles that fold down when not in use. To activate the light you raise the top part and the light comes on automatically and turns off when the top is lowered. The light is bright, white and clean and illuminates very well. The laterns are small (see the photo of it in my hand), making them very convenient and comfortably portable. For two the price is excellent and I would highly recommend these lanterns to anyone who enjoys camping or who needs to complete their hurricane/etc preparedness kits. I know many people who lost power with this latest storm for several days who were not prepared with even the most basic of items such as these laterns. For such a low price I would urge anyone to use foresight and purchase this product and be prepared! I had bought these without really looking at the full product specifications. In my head I was thinking that I was receiving a lantern sized lantern. When the box arrived my first thought was what the heck is this. These are extremely small. However, do not let the size deceive you. These are incredibly bright and will illuminate much better than what I had in mind when I made the initial purchase.

Notes from the Community

I love the camera. It looks really nice, and works well.My only problem is the so-called instructions. They are REALLY poorly translated from Chinese, to the point of some paragraphs being completely incomprehensible. And the instructions are WAY too minimal. Anybody up for studying how the camera operates, how the features work, and writing a decent instruction manual?? 😁 I was pleasantly surprised at how well-built this dash cam seems. It feels solid in the hand, and, though its not heavy, it feels substantial. Additionally, the functionality of it seems to be pretty intuitive. I could turn it on and get it recording without referencing the users guide, which is good, because the users guide is almost useless. Oh, it doesnt come with a memory card, and is useless without one. The battery only lasts a few minutes, too, but they tell you up front that its only for backing up videos and the camera isnt intended to run on battery. So, all in all, Im pretty pleased with it, and may buy a second one. Great little dash cam! Absolutely wonderful camera and a God send in the area I live in, where people drive like their butts are on fire and dont pay attention to anyone else on the road. Gotta have that extra protection in case you get car insurance scammers, as I have had before! The only bad thing about this product is the absolutely HORRIBLE instruction manual they pack with it. It tells you almost nothing about how to use many of its features. This product is an addition to my insurance policy. It is a great help when someone dings my car and starts pointing I did it. California is famous for insurance scams involving accidents Im not paranoid just careful. Plus I want a memory card. When I received this camera and unpacked it I was totally impressed, the quality is super for the price. Works great and very easy to use and understand. I give this product a 10. If you need a car cam this is it. Small enough to put in front of mirror not intrusive. Beautiful 1080p with auto correct. Easy to set up and it automatic once set up you dont have to think about it again unless you need it one of my best buys great product price was very inexpensive for quality So far, so good! I hope I never need the camera footage!

This camera is the best money ever spent. Just caught someone breaking in to my apartment to steal pain medication from my son a week after brain surgery. The guy the apartment sent to change the locks was the guy in the video!! This camera has worked well for me, a non-tech person. I have tried to answer as many of the common questions asked about this camera as I could.I am not sure why, but there is a lot of misinformation out there, especially in some of the top reviews. Some of the problems have been fixed in software updates, but much of the information is just not correct. Hopefully these reviews will be updated at some point.(Edit 8/11/2018 I have noticed many of those top reviews with bad info and most of those camera caught the thief video reviews are gone for some reason). You can download and watch videos on a PC with the free plan (in the last 24 hours) You can watch live stream on a computer via cloudcam.amazon.com You can turn off audio playback (from the app) You can invert the video (from the app) You can turn of the infrared night light (from the app)UNPACKAGINGPackage came on time and was without any damage, but there was no padding inside the shipping box. Included in the main box were the camera, USB cable, AC adaptor for 110 voltage, small setup manual, wall mount and two drywall screws (see photos).OVERALL FIRST IMPRESSIONSCamera seems well made and a little smaller than I thought it would be. All items were included and in good condition.The image on the live view in daylight was good (see photo), images appeared sharp and easy to identify. Sound was crystal clear. I turned on the TV, went into another room and was easily able to watch the TV and hear the sound very clearly when it came through. There were some breakups of the sound at times though, making me miss some of the audio detail. But night vision is dark and grainy, it is not easy to make out itemsSETUPSet up took me less than 11 minutes which includes downloading the app and logging into all accounts. I am not a big tech guy but setup was quite easy. Basically you just plug the camera in to the AC adapter, download the Amazon Cloud Cam app to your phone, wait for the blue blinking light on the camera to change to a pulsating blue and green light, and you will hear a chime sound. This means the camera is ready for setup. Then you just hit the setup button on your phone and in about 3 minutes it is working. I am using a Moto E as my video source and for the app.HOW IT WORKSYou can watch live view or see the video clips the camera took upon it detecting movement. It quickly took several short videos detecting movement when I walked around. I also received a sound and text notice on my phone of Motion detected every time it detected motion and took a video, and when I touch the notice it will play the video for me. I do seem to get a lot of We were unable to play this video error codes when I first try to play the video, but usually it will play when I hit the blue replay button. I have not upgraded my plan so I will only get the last 24 hours of video. It does not take pictures but you can easily do this by just taking a screenshot (see photo) on your android phone, normally this is just hitting the power button and volume button at the same time. Or you could do a Print Screen on your computer when viewing recorded video clips. You can view the recorded videos AND download video clips from a PC with the free plan, just go to www.amazon.com/clouddrive, sign in, then when watching your videos in the upper right hand corner there is a download icon. You can also view live feed or videos up to 24 hours any time with the basic included plan on your cell phone or computer.GLASS WINDOWSIt will take video through a window as it can detect movement. Image for me was still pretty good. But at night the infrared light will glare badly on the windows blurring your view almost completely. You can turn off the infrared light via the app though, and using just a porch light I captured cool videos of many animals at night.WHAT I DO NOT LIKEIn my opinion this camera has poor night vision. It does have the ability to see live view from a computer even though many reviews say you cannot do this. Just go to cloudcam.amazon.com to set it up.I set this camera up to watch my car in my driveway as a test, but at night even at low sensitivity it goes constantly, recoding everything. OK, no problem yet. But when I go to Amazon Drive, I see a lot of recorded videos that I just want to delete. But as of now, I have to look at each one individually, and then hit the delete button each time. I would think this could be MUCH easier. I might take a star off for this in the future (maybe it is just something I do not see or have figured out?).Edit: Thx to Regolith who gave me an option to quickly delete the videos, see his/her two comments under the comments section, they worked well for me. It can work for the phone or the computer.ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ASKED You can download videos to a PC on the free plan in the last 24 hours You can view live stream on a PC via cloudcam.amazon.com It has no local SD storage Sound plays very clearly and loud You can turn off audio playback It only records if it detects movement This is an indoor camera only, it is not waterproof You can turn the camera on/off through the app When the camera detects motion, you receive a text and sound alert via a cell phone You can turn off the IR (infrared night light) It does not pan or zoom Night vision is dark and grainy, not easy to make out photos While camera viewing is wireless, it requires a wire to power it (it is not battery operated) You can have the camera image rotate 180 degrees for ceiling mounting Does not require a base station (some do, I have no idea what a base station is for)THOUGHTSI have not owned another camera to influence me one way or another.I have continuously updated this review as I have used and tested this camera out. Sorry to write so much, I know most people do not like detailed long reviews but I always write what I would want to know about an item before I make a purchase. Any misinformation please let me know or if you have any questions please ask via comments, I will answer what I can. Its a nice camera. Good quality and compact size. Capturing the sound is good, although not the best quality vs other cameras. The biggest issue and I think most important, is the camera will NOT send you a motion alert until AFTER the event has concluded. So if someone is in your home and the motion is constant, the camera will continue to capture the event, but NOT report it to you until motion has stopped. So that may when the person is leaving your place… Not three weeks after installing the Amazon Cloud Cam I received an alert of motion at our hunting cabin. There should not have been anyone there and I was surprised to find video of someone breaking-in and collecting our tools and hunting gear to take with him. I was not able to catch him in real time, but I was able to alert the Sherriff Dpt. within minutes of him leaving. With the 25 separate videos of the suspect the cloud Cam provided, the Sherriff Dpt. were able to quickly find him, our property, and put him in jail. Well worth the price of admission to put a bad guy in jail. We ordered this camera on thanksgiving just because it was on sale. It was delivered by Saturday and I installed it immediately. Sunday my family and I went out of town and I was excited to be able to watch our dog through the cloud cam app. On the way home Sunday evening, I received a notification that motion was detected. I open the app and see that my house had caught on fire and my dog was stuck inside. After calling 911 and a neighbor to break in to rescue our dog, I reopened the app to see the entire room filled with smoke and the fire blazing in the kitchen. Luckily this app saves videos for a week so I was able to share them with our fire department. I was also able to download the videos as well as zoom in to see what caused the fire (my dog hit the stove burner on). The camera is now melted and ruined, but I am forever grateful. I will order another one when we can live in our home again. Thank you Amazon for the sale and thank the universe nothing worse happened! I got the Amazon Cloud cam to see what my cats do during the day. Today, I had left the house and was out running errands. I got an alert that motion was detected in my Kitchen. I looked at the live view and saw a person had broken into my home. I used the microphone feature and yelled at him to get out of my house and told him the police were on the way. He immediately left. Thank you Amazon - without my cloud cams, this could have had a very different ending.

Notes from the Community

THis is a very nice scale! We tried a different brand before getting this one and we have not been disappointed by the Etekcity scale. When you step onto it the display lights up and gives you the weight and then turns off about ten seconds later. The day we received ours I had to go to the doctor so I weighed myself before leaving home and my weight was only .2 lbs different from the doctors scale. Id say thats pretty accurate! It does not save your weight from you previous weigh in but I actually prefer that. I can remember (or write it down) and its just simpler to use without that feature to me. The scale itself is very nice to look at, sleek and modern. I wouldnt hesitate to purchase!I try to be very honest and thorough in my reviews, if this review was helpful to you please click yes, thank you!!! This scale weighs consistently time after time. That means I dont lose a half a lb if I shift my weight or get off, pray, get back on. It still says Im chubby. I believe it. Love the accuracy. Easy to use. Looks great and should go with any décor.Im trying to lose weight (who isnt) and the spring scale I was using before couldnt give me any accurate readings. This one calibrates easily before each weighing and gives me a dead on reading. No guessing. Now I know exactly where Im at concerning my weight.The digital read out is bright and large enough to easily read.It came with a battery installed. All I had to do was pull the insulating strip and it was ready to use.I highly recommend this scale.UPDATE: Since I bought these scales I have lost about 2 lbs. per week. I am now 15 pounds lighter and much more energetic. Its fun to weigh in first thing each morning because I know Im getting very accurate readings which I record on my calendar.Before I had these scales I would stand on my old spring scales and watch the needle bounce around. If I leaned a little one way or another the weight would change. Not with these scales. You will get the same reading even if you do it 3 times in a row. Its encouraging when you can see the little amounts of progress and chart your weight loss accurately.Its still a 5 star rating :) . Im very happy with my choice to buy these scales. I really enjoyed this product for about 2 months. One day while cleaning, I went to pick up the scale so I could vacuum the bathroom floor. I gently grabbed the side of the scale and it completely shattered. I was so disappointed. After I wrote my first review on Amazon, I was contacted by an Etekcity customer support representative and they were extremely kind and wanted to be sure that I was satisfied with their product. They shipped me a brand new scale at zero cost to me. Ive had it for almost a week now and it seems to be working perfectly! It doesnt work! I calibrated it then got on the scale and it said I was at least 30lbs less than what gym scale and the doctors scale says. As much as i wish I was that light I know Im not. Every time I step on the scale I get a different weight. And by different I mean 10lbs heavier or lighter within minutes of each other. It makes no sense. I am very dissapppinted Ive finally got a scale that isnt annoying - Ive had several scales from various stores and they all invariably give a different weight almost every time I step on. I could step on and off four or five times in a row and get three or four different weights - and not just by a fraction but by a pound or more.This one is different! It weighs consistently every time. It came with little extra pads to level it, which seems like an indication that it is well made and so, likely to be more accurate. I like the look and its a bit bigger than the chain store ones. And it did not cost any more than Ive paid in those stores. Overall, I have to say this is the best scale, by far, that Ive ever owned. I highly recommend it. It worked fine for a few days, I felt it was fairly accurate and it gave me consistent weights. But now all the screen will show is LO. The first time I changed the batteries, and two days later the scale was dead again. Ive now changed the batteries multiple times and I get the same thing, making the scale useless. Love this scale & the measuring tape it came with. I will definitely rebuy.
