I prefer reporting about products I’ve found that really do me some good or save some money or something nice. But when I find a product that just doesn’t seem to be worth buying, I feel I should share that too so you can benefit from my experience. Of course, as with products I’m comfortable recommending, the fact that something didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. I’m just telling you my experience.
About two months ago, I went to a doctor for a routine appointment and her scales said I weighed less fully clothed than my scales at home said I’d weighed that morning without a stitch of clothing. I’d thought I’d been gaining weight despite my best efforts, but no – my bathroom scales were just dying. (Actually, it may have just been the lithium battery, but there was no way to replace them!)
I bought a Taylor scale to replace them. I liked the display, and the numbers it gave me seemed accurate (going by the doctor’s scale for comparison). But sometimes the display would come on, and other times it wouldn’t. Then I came in one morning and found the scales had come on all by themselves, and wouldn’t go off. (They finally went off when the clerk taking my return put them up on her counter.)
I took that scale back and bought another Taylor in its place – a different model. The exact same problems occurred: sometimes it wouldn’t come on at all, other times it came on of its own accord and stayed that way for hours.
Two different models from the same company having identical problems was enough to convince me that maybe Taylor scales just aren’t very well made. Has anyone else had any experience, good or bad, with this brand?
