Pros:
* Provide great illumination and magnification while leaving your hands free to work!
* Several magnification lenses available.
* Superbright LED light is great even without lenses.
* Perfect for SMD work and other jobs that need some amplification and/or decent lighting.
* Cheap! Similar glasses purchased locally would cost >$50.
Cons:
* The frame itself is fairly flimsy and is easily bent.
* Hinge on the light unit is quite stiff.
* Not particularly comfortable, particularly with lens attached as it's quite heavy.
Other:
Bottomline:
Even if you only do a small amount of closeup work, these glasses are great and well worth the fairly inexpensive purchase price! The extra light alone makes things much easier, and the magnification can improve things even more! The build quality isn't fantastic but for the price it's quite acceptable. I would definitely recommend them.
