bad distortion – 10X Texture Close-up Magnifier Reviews

Well, it's cheap - much cheaper than you'd find them anywhere else. I had hoped to use this to inspect 35mm transparencies before taking the time to scan them.
The lens on my unit is very poor, there is a tiny part in the centre which gives a usable image, but outside that it's so distorted, it is unusable. I'll probably struggle by because I'm only looking for tiny details, but I'm guessing for most purposes, this would be useless.
Others seem to have got these without distortion, given the very cheap price, maybe it would be smart to purchase a few and toss away the bad ones.
