    I like this product because it's durable and I have the confidence to stand on it - something I didn't have on most scales. It will only "talk" if you stand very still and the numbers start flashing. I have a hard time standing that still due to some medical issues, but it's a very accurate scale. If anyone has idea or hint how to resolve that issue, would love to hear from you.

    I purchased this product on the strength of the reviews from other customers. Sadly, my experience was quite the opposite. The scale stopped working within a few months of purchasing. At first it started giving wild variations when stepped on then that morphed into an error message. I tried troubleshooting, new batteries etc. but none of that worked. Maybe it was bad luck and I happened to get the lemon of the batch but this was a disappointing first purchase from Living XL.

        I had a doctor's appointment yesterday. Before I left home, I weighed myself on these scales. When I got to the doctor's office I weighed in at exactly the same weight I had gotten from my home scales. That was what I was looking for when I bought these scales - an accurate account of my weight. This is exactly what I got with my scales. Thank you.

            I've used digital scales in the past with horrible results. You could stand on it 20 times and get 20 different readings. Not so with this one. So far it's been very consistent. Thumbs up.

            Comments about Idea Works® Extra-Wide Talking Scale:

            I love this scale because I am larger than normal but because of my size and other health issues, I cannot stand still and it shuts off on me repeatedly. It takes me between 5 and 10 tries to get my weight. Sometimes I give up. Other than that it is a good scale.

                        This scale has a great wide surface for size 14 feet. It is easy to move to different locations, and weighs very accurately, and is consistent. The touch power up has to be tapped just right, or else it takes several attempts to turn it on . Overall, we like it.
