Not perfect, but good value and it works. – Dual Side 10X 18mm + 20X 12mm Jewelers Loupes / Magnifiers Reviews

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

Pros:
- Comes packaged in a cardboard box, containing a plastic holder box - Two sides, 10x-18mm and 20x-12mm - Hinge to swing out the lenses feels solid, unlikely to break - Machining is done well, no unexpectedly sharp edges. Feels solid.
Cons:
- Plastic holder box will not withstand much abuse. You probably should not sit/stand on it, but it will help keep it from getting knocked about in your bag. - Some aberrations at the edge of the lenses, but it's tolerable for the price. Just use the centre. - Metal is too glossy (well done!), picks up fingerprints. - On arrival, lenses were not very clean. Quite a lot of dust specks.
Other:
- I can't verify the magnification ratios, but there's definitely a difference between the 10x and 20x side.
Bottomline:
- For the price, the cons are worth it. - Would recommend to others.
