When will Scorewatch say my score is Good?

my equifax score recently hit a high of 685, after which scorewatch said in the "what it means to you" section that:

Your score of 685 is somewhat below the average score of U.S. consumers. Keep in mind, however, that many lenders consider this an Good score

Then however the score dropped to 671, because some stupid student loan reported a long ago late payment that they never did before because of a recent dispute (watch the disputes! You might get lenders posting negative things that they didn't post before!!)

So now it says this:
Your score of 671 is somewhat below the average score of U.S. consumers. Keep in mind, however, that many lenders consider this an acceptable score.

So what number do I have to hit for Scorewatch to tell me my score is a "Good Score?"
700? 720?

The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
