  • Awful Quality

    posted by Spoot on 11/28/2007

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

    Pros:

    Not much to put here. It did allow me to see an image on my credit card using the UV light.
    The LED light is very bright.

    Cons:

    Awful build quality.
    I had to fix the battery contacts (they didn't touch the batteries) before the UV light would work.
    The switch is hard to use for my mother who i bought it for so she could see the TV guide better. She isn't able to move the switch without swearing at it.
    The lens is made of plastic and anything seen with it looks warped and barely readable.
    It uses expensive batteries (two CR2016).

    OtherThoughts:

    I honestly think DX should remove this product from their catalog.

    Bottomline:

    Not worth the money compared to other products on DX.
