Useful But OverpricedSaturday, July 28, 2012
I had this model in my pocket for many years until I recently lost it. The ability to get different levels of magnification by selecting combinations of the three lenses is handy. The field of view is small, but that's to be expected for a 20x loupe. At 20x magnification you must hold the work very close to your eye (a function of basic physics, nothing special about this model), which can make it tricky to illuminate the work. This magnifier has no built-in light. One problem with this model is that nothing keeps it folded except friction in the hinge. After a few weeks of use, the hinge loosens enough that it doesn't keep the magnifier folded. The case provides very little protection, since the magnifier is as likely as not to flop open in my pocket.
Cchoice of degree of magnification. Small, lightweight. Clear image
Case doesn't stay shut. Lighting can be a problem
Not What I ExpectedWednesday, April 18, 2012
Lenses are extremely small. Drillspot charges 15% restocking fee to return. I might as well keep it even though it is useless.
