    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    it's small, comes with a protective pouch and batteries, and it has leds for light and money testing.
    the leds also work as regular flashlight/money testing lights when the microscope function isn't used.

    Cons:

    the material feels very cheap, like it can fall apart at any moment.
    the light switch is also the battery cap, so when you turn off the led its very easy to accidentally twist it off.
    on mine the focus slider was glued to the casing by the paint, though this was solved by prying it loose with a pocket knife.
    the keychain often gets in the way.

    OtherThoughts:

    it works surprisingly well for it's price.
    the first thing I did was take a closer look on the screens of my phone and psvita, and while it took me a while to adjust my eyes I could clearly see the individual sub pixels.
    it actually works better than the "real" microscope I had as a kid.

    Bottomline:

    while the price matches the build quality, for this price it doesn't really matter.
    it works great, and with this price it won't really hurt your wallet to buy a few spares.
