Useful magnifier – 10X Close-up Map Magnifier Reviews

posted by mikeham on 05/22/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
For my application (inspecting home-made printed circuit boards), it works perfectly. Magnification level fine for viewing handheld - higher levels introduce problems with shaking
Cons:
Fixed focus (no focus adjustment.) My unit is not quite in focus when placed on a surface without lifting it up slightly. All-plastic construction (including lens); therefore perhaps could have been a few cents cheaper
Other:
Build quality adequate for an all-plastic product
Bottomline:
Cheap and cheerful magnifier. No, it's not a microscope, but I've found it to be very useful
