How long is at other scale manufacturer's factory warranty? The EK-1200i is 5 years. Ohaus warranties their scales for only 2 years, while Mettler Toledo gem scales are only 1 year.
What is the scale's TRUE readability in Legal for Trade mode? The EK-1200i is 1200g x 0.1g. Caveat Emptor many jewelry scales on the market might read to 0.1 gram, but are LFT only to 1 gram. Other precious metal scales might read to 0.01g, but they are only LFT to 0.1g and offer very little weighing capacity. If the Weights & Measures Inspector know their job you should expect to weigh down to only what your scale has been approved for weighing. If you look at a CofC the inspector will only allow you to weigh to the the tolerances based on "e" not "d". The EK-1200i offers 1200 grams weighing capacity and the scale is LFT over the entire weighing range by 0.1 grams.
Another factor to consider is how does one locked out the scale and put it into service as a Legal for Trade Scale. The A&D design is very simple and easy. A&D designed the scale with a removable door on the back of the scale that the Weights & Measures Inspector simply puts a wire through and crimps.

If require a scale to weigh medical marijuana most states require you to weigh on a scale that is legal for trade to 0.01 grams (EK1200i is NOT accurate enough). Some states like Colorado as of March 2016 accept "d" (value of scale division) to 0.01 grams and "e" (value of verification scale division) is 0.1 grams (Example A&D EK-610J, Mettler Toledo JL602-GE or Ohaus AX622N/E). Other states like Oregon and even Minnesota for weighing precious metals require "e" to 0.01 grams and this means you'll need to buy a weighing device were "d" equals 0.001g (Example A&D FX300iN , AND GF-200P or Ohaus AX423N/E). Always check with your particular requirements since State, County and City regulations have changed and enforcement is getting stricter. Just because a store down the street is using a particular model scale does not mean if you buy the same model they will allow you to use the scale since that store might fall under a grandfather clause under the old law.

In the video above we unbox the A&D Weighing EK6100J and show you what comes with the scale and discuss some of the available accessories.

Weighing equipment - The world runs on weights & measures. Almost everything you see & touch is weighed.
In this video we offer an overview of the A&D Weighing EK6100J and EK610J. The EK610J (600g x 0.01g) has the same display, same housing and operates very similar to the EK1200i so we recommend you watch the video to gain more insight on the scale. There are some slight differences mainly the EK1200i only reads to 0.1 gram while the EK610J increments in 0.01 gram increments.
Another difference is weighing platform size for the EK1200i is rectangular measuring 5.2 x 6.7 inches, while the EK610J is a round 4.3 inch diameter platform. Both scales are Legal for Trade and NTEP Approved Class II Scales.
For the EK610J the maximum weighing capacity is 600 grams and "d"(value of scale division) is 0.01 grams and the "e" (value of verification scale division) is 0.1 grams, while the EK1200i "d" and "e" are both 0.1 grams. The EK-610J DOES NOT have a functional RS-232 serial interface so you can not connect the EK-610J scale to a computer or A&D printer, but you could with the EK-1200i.
For the EK6100J the maximum weighing capacity is 6000 grams and "d"(value of scale division) is 0.1 grams and the "e" (value of verification scale division) is 1 gram, while the EK1200i "d" and "e" are both 0.1 grams. The EK-6100J DOES NOT have a functional RS-232 serial interface so you can not connect the EK-6100J scale to a computer or A&D printer, but you could with the EK-1200i.
If you have no plans to connect the EK1200i to a computer for data acquisition or the A&D 8121B printer the EK610J is a better buy for most people since you get greater accuracy than the EK-1200i.
The EK1200-i comes standard with an 120V AC Adapter. So you'll need to plug the scale into a power receptacle. What happens if you need to operate the scale and there is no electrical outlet available?
Well there is an answer to your dilemma, but it requires you to purchase the optional EKW-09i rechargeable battery pack. When fully charged you'll have approximately 9 hours of scale operating time. Watch the video above to see how to install the optional EKW-09i rechargeable battery pack. Installation is the same for the EK-1200i.

This form fitted clear transparent plastic cover in-use cover is easy to install on the EK-1200i and other EK/EW models with the 5.2 x 6.7 inches rectangular platform requires you to remove the weighing pan support to install the clear plastic cover and this video shows how this is done.
