If price is absolutely the #1 factor in you purchasing a 1210 gram balance with 0.01g readability designed with a force restoration magnetic motor then we would recommend you take a look at the AND FX-1200i precision balance.

Watch the review of the FX-3000i from AND Weighing. The FX-i is the economy model A&D Weighing offers for those customers not willing to pony up the money for the AND GF Series. The FZ-i is the economy model A&D offers for those customers not willing to pony up the money for the A&D Weighing GX Series. The A&D FX-1200i might be an option if the GF-1200 precision balance is too expensive for your budget.
Before you make your final decision for purchasing your next precision laboratory balance be sure to see the Sartorius Entris Series. Lightening fast weighing results, high-contrast backlit LCD and a spirit bubble located to the left of the weighing display so you know your balance is level to measure optimum accuracy. Combining affordability with a versatile design the Sartorius Entris is the affordable standard for precision 2 decimal place weighing.
Sartorius Secura Laboratory Balance offer advanced weighing features compliant with the USP minimum sample weight requirements. The balance's display indicates when the minimum sample weight is below the required minimum weight limit.
Secura guarantees high reliability and security in regulated areas for the most common weighing ranges. Sartorius Quintix is convenience in operation, calibration and data transfer. Even Sartorius Practum features weighing technology at the highest quality level.
Can you work with less weighing capacity? How about 600 gams? The A&D Weighing EK610J electronic digital scale has 600 grams weighing capacity with 0.01 grams readability. The scale features a 4.3 inches diameter stainless steel platform that is removable for easy cleaning. The large 7 segment LCD display with backlit allows for easy viewing is even low lighting conditions. If you look at the scale's display you will notice 5 diagonal line printed on the screen. Since "e" and "d" are not the same value the last digit of the display is boxed as per Legal for trade requirements. The "boxed markings" can not be removed and does slightly obscure your ability to read the last decimal.
You have a five (5) button tactile keypad with positive click so you really know the key was pressed. If you have shopped around for a new scale you might notice many now have touchscreens. Problem with touchscreens is they don't always work well if you have gloves on or your fingers are wet. Tactile keypads don't have any working issues. If you open the manual on page 3 each key function is explained and the instruction manual is clearly written and easy to understand unlike those scales made in China, Switzerland or even Germany that are very hard to understand and follow
