Default Scale Recommendations?

So there is 5 pound decrepancy between both the scales at my house and neither of them will give me the same weight twice. I think I need a new scale before I scream. Can anyone recommend a brand? I don't need anything fancy just reliable...

I like Omron's scales... Their HBF-400 is currently $39.99 on Amazon.com, and I think this is the model I have. I got it. After a few weeks, my then-GF bought it. A few months later, my parents got it. It's a great scale, and the BF% monitor is really consistent too.

I was just coming here to recommend the same scale as the previous poster, Omron HBF-400. (I removed a link to it on Amazon, I wasn't sure we were supposed to include links in our postings. If anyone is interested, you can search for it (search for "Omron HBF-400" or for "Omron Body Fat Monitor and Scale" on Amazon.)

Wow thanks guys... Do you have to have wet feet for it to read body fat?

Nope, you don't need wet feet for it to read body fat (at least not on the one I have).
