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

    Pros:

    Good magnification

    Relatively easy to use

    Scale could be useful

    AA batteries

    Can be used as emergency flashlight

    Cons:

    Weak light

    100X probably too much

    "1 DIV/0.02mm" in large letters in view

    OtherThoughts:

    They are sending the 100X. It is probably a more expensive unit, but 80X or even 60X would probably be better. I got both SKU 1328 and this one. 1328 is tiny by comparison. It has a much brighter LED and is easier to use. I find I often use a Q5 flashlight to supplement the LED on this scope where it isn’t necessary with 1328. The optics on both are quite good. “1 Div/0.02mm” in large letters in the view clutters the screen and is unnecessary IMO. AAs are easier to find, but I doubt I will have to change the batteries on either for a long time. My low rating is based on a comparison with 1328. If this is the only one you have you will probably find it quite adequate.

    Bottomline:

    Unless you need the scale markings get SKU 1328 instead. This unit does the job but 1328 seems to do everything better.
