Great bang for you buck
Pros: Used this to accompany my flux capacitor while building my proton excellerator which i plan to sell to the Russians
Cons: Out of the 8 that i had bought, 3 were DOA.....they caused a massive time rift in the multideminsional time matrix....causing a dual-quantum paradox causing me to lose a few family memebers.....dont buy this is you value your life and that of others....in case your wondering why i gave it 4 eggs....i hate my family

only the scale is good
Pros: - All measurements are fairly consistent with in a short time frame.
Cons: When I got the scale, it put my body fat at 27 and body age at a (oh noes) 60. I'm only 23 and I'm only slightly out of shape so I doubt those readings are accurate. But I thought they would serve as a a bench mark to track progression.
Other Thoughts: It's just a scale. nothing more.

Never the same results twice
Pros: Gives lots of information, so of which is even useful. Body fat reading within 2% of a Bod Pod. An HBF-400 reported 4% higher than the Bod Pod and an HBF-300 reported 4% lower.
Cons: I can do 5 measurements and get 5 different answers for body fat %. In just 7 days I have seen readings as low as 24.5%, and as high as 25.6%, taken first thing in the morning every day. This does however match up closely with a Bod Pod test that put my body fat at 26.9%, so for me it's pretty accurate. An HBF-400 (feet only) said I was over 30%. An HBF-300 (hands only) put me at 23%, so the HBF-516B is in between those two extremes.
Other Thoughts: The absolute accuracy of ANY of these BIA devices is going to be questionable. For populations of people they are pretty accurate, but for any one individual, they can be off by quite a bit. Their value is in reporting changes over time.
