    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Full 20x magnification. LEDs come with batteries, and are sufficient enough to light the work area. Glasses frame is lightweight. Lenses can be adjusted to fit a wide arrange of head sizes. They can also be retracted independently to allow for full viewing of work.

    Cons:

    Has a focal point of about 2". Means work must be extremely close for a clear picture. (such doing anything that requires heat/soldiering is dangerous). Also pointless to have two lenses on one frame as you cannot focus both on the same point at the same time. See 'other thoughts' for suggestion on that.

    OtherThoughts:

    Did a little bit of disassemble and actually removed one of the eye pieces from the frame. I use it hand held for quick jobs, or in obscure places where the frames are not feasible.

    Bottomline:

    Great item for price, would recommend to others!
