No...I totally agree. Not sure why all the big fuss last time...(^_^)...but I guess it was just one of those 'Internet moments' and you just 'had' to do it (though not I).

I'm not sure why you say it's "back" -- it never left... it's just that very few stores actually carry it in stock, and it's still out of stock online.

At any rate, this time I'm not going to weight too long before I tare off to the store to get another!

Ha...my sides!

I guess I presumed that when all the 'hub-bub' died down it meant that the stores had all run out.

If you could tell me exactly how much it weighed I might have something to call about!

unfortunately i really don't think they're back. a quick search for stock reveals very little - and who knows if they actually do have it.

Whats all the fuss about pRon, this product is discontinued. RadioShack just lowered the price. Trying to clear out inventory. The nearest one to me is in Big Bear. Over an hour away. Its been like that for a long time.

An on-line check shows my local stores have them in stock. I just assumed they were out before (though I didn't check the last time these were available).

If you ask a USB scale to weigh itself, does it disappear into a black hole ?

People have still reported getting the scale. . .AND

people say that THIS link is more accurate in terms of local inventory. . . .try it!

Newt, that's wild. According to that link, they're all over the place near me-- which I cannot imagine is correct (all the local stores I called months ago said they didn't have them, so unless they've suddenly all been restocked, I dunno...)

Edit: confirmed. I just called the closest store, they say the closest one to me that has one is still pretty far (it's not even one of the ones that comes up in the listing if I do the search based on zip code).

If possible, which I know isn't always possible, go in person. . .people have had instance when they called (and this happened to me too) and was told they had none. . .then in person they had them (maybe lazy radioshack personnel?). . .

also, inventory isn't always accurate. .. they might have discovered some and updated their inventory or maybe people returned the ones they got. . .

as always YMMV. . .

Newt, guy in the store said someone had called right before me, and he gave the same info: closest store that has one is in a not-very-close location, and there are only 26 total of them in the district. So it seemed that he really knew what he was talking about, and apparently someone is really looking around for them...

That's a tare-iffying thought.
