Very good for checking soldering quality on a PCB and verifying SMD components. The bult in scale also useful for measuring distances and the white LED gives enough light for clear image.
There is no real cons. It just shows the image upside-down, so its a bit confusing to move area of interest into view. (of course if you don't mind the scale is upside-down you can turn the magnifier for normally oriented image)
The focus plane is at the front of the device and the depth of field is quite small (no wonder at 80x magnification). So for clear image the front of the magnifier must touch the target object's surface.
I recommend for everyone who is working with SMD components.
