We made a special purchase on the AND EK6100J which offers 6000g x 0.1g readability and is Legal for Trade while the Ohaus SPX2201 is NOT LFT and only weighs up to 2200 grams. So take a look at the A&D Weighing EK6100J before you make your final selection since the A&D is only a little more money for a lot more scale.
Designed for use in laboratory, industrial or education applications, the Ohaus Scout SPX continues the tradition set by the Ohaus Scout, Scout II and Scout Pro products. Featuring easy-to-use four-button operation, a high-contrast LCD display, operates on AC adapter (included) or 4 AA batteries (not included) for complete portability.
Features include ABS housing, stainless steel pan, weigh below hook, transportation lock, manual calibration lock switch, security slot, adjustable leveling feet, illuminated up-front level indicator. Stability indicator, stackable design with optional stacking & storage cover, mechanical and software overload/underload protection, low battery indicator, auto shut-off and auto tare. Span calibration mass is NOT included but can be purchased separately. We offer a large selection of calibration weights available at an additional cost.

Another comparable digital scale to the Ohaus SPX2201 is the A&D EJ2000 offering the ability to purchase either the RS-232 or USB module if you want to send weighing results to a computer. A&D offers WinCT data communication software to download free while Ohaus offers no free software. In addition, the A&D EJ digital scales are backed with a 5 year warranty while the Ohaus Scout SPX2201 has only a 2 year warranty. Schools are always calling us asking which scale offers the longer warranty and the 5 year warranty is something they really like.
If price is absolutely the #1 issue and you are in search of the lowest cost 0.1g digital scales then we have a couple of other digital scales that are made in China - the Ohaus SPX2201 is also made in China. These gram scales do not have all the bells and whistles included in an Ohaus SPX2201, but the price is much less. For our customers seeking a simplified digital portable balance, with less features we recommend My Weigh brand digital scales. My Weigh's i2600 balance offers 2600g x 0.1g and the EPB-3K digital precision scale at a much more affordable price.
