    Quality electronic scale like Ohaus that doe grams and ounces?

    Quality electronic scale like Ohaus that weighs in grams and ounces?

    I like to buy quality products (like Ubuntu) and I don't recognize the brands from China on eBay of scales for dirt cheap nor would I trust them to weigh things.

    The Ohaus scales, which I'm familiar with being a Scientist, only come in grams as far as I can tell. I'm only familiar with Ohaus and I know it's a quality company from experience.

    But what other company is a quality company that makes them, I just need a small one to weigh things like jewelry. But I need ounces and grams.

    Much thanks in advance for any help!

    I'm not sure what level of quality in scales you're seeking. But for ordinary household, especially culinary, use, I've been happy with our Ozeri Pro Digital Kitchen Food Scale, 1g to 12 lbs capacity.

    I decided to stick with Ohaus since I've used them a lot when teaching Science and working as a Scientist for the U.S. Govt.

    I'm looking at these 3 and then I have questions below the link below:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._bw_g328_i4_pd

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._bw_g328_i3_bs

    and

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...hps_bw_g328_i7

    And my questions are:

    1) Can anyone tell me the difference between the first two scales linked above as the first to links - ? I see that one weighs up to 2000 grams, is this the only difference we can see here?

    2) The readout accuracy of the third scale is 0.1 grams, and my question is are the first two links/scales above also accurate to 0.1 grams? It looks like the first 2 are only accurate to 1 gram - ?

    3) Which scale would you choose if you were going to weigh dead insects, leaves, plants, etc....
