DigitalScales.com - Digital Scale Manufacturer & Pocket Scale Manufacturer Guide
is a listing of some makes of digital scales. That site has other info, see the Home page and go from there.
For el cheapo scales, the two Cen-Tech scales I have from Harbor freight haven't let me down so far. One has been used for years.
