Great for light measuring (5 Stars)
When an opportunity came to try this scale out I figured it was perfect. I don't need the portability factor so much but the size makes it easy to store in my tiny kitchen. It has two nifty lids that keep it covered and can easily be used to hold objects being measured in a pinch.
Since trying it out I think the TOP500 is just a bit too small for what I want to use it for but would be great for jewelry and light mail uses. For the price it's an excellent little unit and I would definitely recommend folks who need a small scale for their postal and food measurements check out the TOP2KG and TOP3KG. I can't quite comment on the long-term durability but these are small enough to easily fit in a purse or briefcase.
