Pioneer Plus Balances models use a magnetic force restoration weigh sensor, not a cheap strain gauge that is prone to drifting with the numbers on the display moving even though you added nothing to the weighing platform. We get so many calls from end users saying they purchased some no name brand made and they hate their balance since it is a strain gauge. If you don't understand then watch this video HERE demonstrating a magnetic force restoration balance verses strain gauge scale.
