    Pros:

    First of all, it really works and gives the 60x magnification. You can comfortably read a 0.05 mm text, which is usually called "microprint" and is used in various IDs or on some paper money.

    The size is very, very small - you see a big "microscope" on DX pictures, but it's real height is less than 3 cm. You can carry it anywhere and anytime in your pocket - it's useful if you wish to check large bills anywhere.

    The light is very bright, and it is very useful - you have to put the magnifier very close to the examined item, so you need a powerful light source. The LEDs are just OK. And the UV light is just a must have.

    Cons:

    It is very, very small, so it may seem some kind of unconvenient to use. Please note that the size is less than 3x3 cm! It's not "super mini", it's "super-super-mini".

    The "silver" paint of the body is not quite good - it easily scratches. And the fake leather bag is a real shame.

    Bottomline:

    A very good magnifier if you have the usage for it. The price is very, very good, a real bargain.
