Bottom Line: A Talking Digital Scale that doesn't yell at me that I'm eating too much..........
Positive Product Points

This is a talking scale, it speaks out loud the weight of an item and even sort of tells you how to use it.  I like having it around so I don't have to stare at the LCD.  I sort of throw things onto the bowl and just listen for what it tells me the item weighs.   It has a nice metal tray and a large bowl that come with it.  It's also got a lot of other stuff that I don't use :)

Negative Product Points

The bowl is smaller then what I need.  It works fine for coffee but it's too small for salad or TVP

Detailed Commentary

I bought this because I thought it would make my mornings and cooking easier.  It definitely does that, yes I'm a bit lazy but staring down at the LCD just doesn't have the same mental effect for me as hearing the weight spoken to me.

I'm sure this scale would be great for anyone that has poor eyesight too.   I just like the voice feature and the high capacity.  Fortunately I don't need to have a talking scale but it really is fun (friends love it too).  Unlike my friends though,  this scale doesn't tell me I'm eating too much of the wrong things,  or drinking too much coffee.

Buying Experience

Easy,   searched for coffee scale and ended up on a few sites.  Cyberscale gave me the best deal so I bought from them and it showed up 3 days later via UPS.

Three Month Followup

Still loving my weighing scale!   It is kind of famous among my friends now and a couple of them have bought the same scale.   I really find it usefull to have the weight spoken as well as shown while I am cooking.
