This was the first Taylor scale I bought and sent back the same night. The LED readout can not be read while standing on scale. Numbers appear dark after stepping off scale and moving back.Buy the EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale w/ Extra Large Backlit 3.5" Display and "Step-On" Technology . I had this scale but dropped it. So I bought another brand scale. Should have just bought another.You must use it on a flat surface as with ANY four footed..
