Pros:
It's certainly a cheap option for this type of instrument.
Cons:
The light is off centre on not very bright. The focal point of the lens that you look for is very close to the end of the otoscope. This makes it quite dangerous when using it in your toddlers ears. Also the extra fitting don't stay on very well. When I tried the small aperture fitting it stayed in my daughters ear when I withdrew the otoscope.
Other:
For $5 it's not too bad. The light might be better with better batteries perhaps.
Bottomline:
It had potential to be ok but the poor quality light and it being off centre, in conjunction with near focal point make it not so useful.
