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

    Pros:

    Good quality of the image.Sharp,high contrast.
    Small size;really very portable.
    The angle of the incident LED light is appropriate.
    Very easy to use.

    Cons:

    The magnification is far from 45X.
    I have a high quality microscope and it's easy to see the difference.
    I think the real magnification is between 15 and 20, which actually is quite useful and I personally don't have a problem with this.
    The LED-s don't work very reliably.They kind of blink due to bad contact.Easy to fix though.

    OtherThoughts:

    I think the light is too bright for me.The current consumption is about 40mA, which would drain the batteries quite fast (less than half an hour).That's why I redused the current to 7mA by putting an aditional SMD resistor of 180 Ohms.The light is quite sufficient and I am not that concerned about the battery life anymore.

    Bottomline:

    I'd recommend it for DIY people.To me it's quite useful.
