yup, still have it right on my desk and use it at least once a week. Possibly one of the oldest pieces of computer gear that I still have in service. I keep assuming it will just stop working at some point, but it keeps on trucking.

I regretted missing that deal but received one a few years later from generous forumite richorlin for the cost of postage. thumbs up

Works great with El Capitan and I use it frequently.

Can't remember what I did with mine, but there are plenty of times I wish I still had it.

My wife uses hers multiple times per week for eBay shipments. If anyone has a near or like new one that wants to get rid of it let me know.

I use a stand alone digital scale, I think Dymo, $10 and it can go up to 5 lb. Perfect for small packages or for the kitchen. My unit will still work long after your USB units stop working due to software issues or when Apple discontinues USB ports.

Still going strong, though usage runs in spurts. I did give one to MIL/FIL, but MIL (who was the primary user) died shortly thereafter. I don't think FIL has used it since, even though I've demo'ed it for him a couple of times over the years. He recently got a new iMac (his 6th), and a couple of his grandkids set it up for him. The RYF RSUSBS didn't make the cut, yet, so I'll have to remember o bring the driver for it one of these visits. OTOH, he probably wouldn't miss it if I took it back, so if I forget the driver (again), maybe I can remember to throw it in the van and can send it to someone here that will actually use it. One of the best ten buck tech deal ever.

I own an USB scale, but I procured mine during my six week stint at Stamps.com back in 2004.



It is what it is.

11 years!?!
Holy avoirdupois, Batman!
I sorta wanted one, but didn't have a laptop for the kitchen so never got one. As it turns out, I didn't need one.
But I remember the frenzy fondly.

It's around here somewhere,

Will be sure to look for it when I go digging for a old PATA drive I have been thinking about.

I still have the App installed - it's version 2.0b1 - hopefully that will work in 10.9.5 - is there a update for newer OS?
