I like that I can weigh packages up to 50 pounds without a problem. The scale is bulky, but what else do you expect from a scale that can weigh packages up to 50 lbs.? This scale is excellent in giving you 1/2-1 lb. readings. If you're looking for precise readings, such as 19 lbs. 7 oz., then this isn't for you. The only downside to this is that it doesn't give measurements in ounces. However, most methods of shipping don't necessarily require that.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
