Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Rugged plastic protective case with clear acrylic lid.
Magnifier is all metal construction, nicely polished & bright finished. Lens is glass & seems of sound quality with no obvious distortion. The LEDs are bright, somewhat bluish but make observation in poor light a breeze. LED switch is a little awkward but given the compact nature overall its not a problem.
Cons:
The need for a special battery compartment access tool seems un-necessary & you wonder why a slotted plug for a screwdriver was not used. Given the provision of a plastic case, with a place tor the special tool, this should not be more than a minor annoyance.
On my unit there was one metal edge that was not properly deburred, this spoilt what otherwise might be a perfect product, although in itself fairly minor.
Other:
For $5 this is a steal & I can't imagine anyone not being able to find a use for it. The nice case makes it easy to store & find.
Bottomline:
Get it or get several!
