Very Good and most appreciative of service
After seven months scale has packed in. Even after changing the battery it did not show the correct weight. A refund or replacement was requested from the distributor of propert in Sydney. The distributors of Propert Glass digital scale willingly agreed to replace the same. That is excellent customer service and truly appreciated. Well done Propert!! I will now recommend you to my mates at the Gym.
Does Not Give Accurate Readingd
I needed accurate scales because of a health problem. It took me a couple of weeks before I realised it was weighing 2kgs heavier than it should. I stand on them, get off, stand on them again and it is always 2kg lighter.
Not good when you are relying on accurate readings
Purchased from Harris's Scarfe today. On Special for $14.95. Mine are already at 1.7 before stepping on them, tried to reset them, couldn't even get the battery cover off. I personally think these scales had been returned once before, and they've put them back out for sale. Well they'll be getting them back again!.Really wished I'd spent the extra dollars and got a better brand, as I should have stuck to my first instinct, as I purchased these from my Lorraine Lea linen party about 5years ago, and the first set had to be replaced, then the sec...ond stopped working too - It was still in warranty period, but I just gave up. I honestly thought after 5 years, they would have improved them, but obviously still having issues. I wouldn't give them a star rating either, if that was a choice.
Drains batteries every 2 days
Bought Propert 3177 from Bunnings. They come with batteries but those batteries were dead in 2 days. I bought new batteries and put them in, but again dead in 2 days. Other than that issue I was finding that I got consistent weight readings.
Propert Scales... no point
I bought my scales a couple of weeks ago from Harris Scarfe. I weighed myself first time, then two hours later... incredible weight loss (sarcastic comment) according to the scales I had lost 2 kilos. A few hours later I was 4 kilos heavier than the previous weigh in. There is no point in using them. I'd give zero stars if I could.
I agree with all the reviews of the Propert bathroom scales. Having started a weight loss program with my husband 2 months ago we had to weigh ourselves several times to get an average and that could vary by 500 gms. (Hey..thats 1/2 a kilo)!! Some days were just downright miserable after that weigh in!!! However, I must say I contacted the company and they have been wonderful and replaced our scales FOC with a very consistent (so as far as I am concerned accurate) set of Soehnle bathroom scales....and happy days my husband has lost 5 kg and I have lost 6. Thanks Kendal...customer service representative.!!
Here's the bad news.
Before purchasing new batteries the numbers on the screen wouldn't hold still.Now after inserting the new batteries it has gone totally wild.My best suggestion is to stand on it as it selects a random set of numbers for your Lotto entry.This Chinese crap is trading under a once well respected name in appliances and is being marketed by Woolworths a once respected name in retailing.
Complete waste of money.
Needed a new set of scales, as my last digital scales died suddenly. New scales on sale at Harris Scarfe (half price ). Now I know why. Also kicking myself for not checking Product Review first. These are total crap! DO NOT BUY!! Gives a different reading each and every time you weigh (within minutes). They are totally inaccurate!! Now, reading these reviews, obviously everybody else agrees. I cannot understand why Harris Scarfe would continue to stock a product with such a poor performance. What a consumer rip-off!!! Makes me mad. Should be illegal!!!
purchased at Big-W and they do not work
purchased these Propert brand scales at Big-W never imagining that they would not work. But to test them at home I checked that the scale was zero first. Then put an item on them that was actually 1kg and the reading said it was less than that. Tried another item that really had been weighed on shop scales as being exactly 2kg and yet the Propert scales result indicated that the item weighed less than half this. In every instance they Propert scales proved to weigh inaccurately. This is not acceptable. I will not buy this brand again
I bought two same products (Propert Model 3454 Vector) from Australia's most Trusted brand Woolworth, within a month one of them started to show Eroor code 2402. As i mentioned before, i bought two and started the second one after that. the second one also showing the same error code. i thought, its a battery problem and bought 2 pairs of expensive Duracell battery from Woolworth and didn't solve my problem. when I informed Woolworth Campsie (one of the Worst as Woolworth service), they asked me that could be mishandling the product or water da...manged. They adviced me to contact them later or better contact the store. nowadays, the receipt is lost and usual after sales the warranty is over. Anyway, i just tried to update our family scale to a newer one while our previous Digital scale (From ALDI Product 9704, Model # 4528) had a flat battery (I make it alive again simply after changing the battery). I'm a poor father of 3 kids aging 1.5y to 6y and living here as a temporary resident. I'm not eligible for any centrelink or medicare or any other residency advantages. i had to pay $8,500.00 to $9,000.00 every year to pay my daughter's school (Local Public School). Each single cents I've to count. Woolworth's some disappointing products like this make me very upset. Comparatively, i believe Coles customer service is better.
