Have had one ever since they first came out. Can't remember exactly when that was, but many years ago. It has performed quite well. As with most digital scales, you have to be careful of wind or draft currents. It doesn't take much air movement to affect the scale. It must be checked for calibration each and every time it is being used. A Lyman scale calibration kit is recommended. The standard 771.6 gr. weight that comes with the scale for normal calibration is a must.

Newer models are available, so a LE1000 should be bought for a lesser price.
