Pros:
First of all, it really works and gives the 60x magnification. You can comfortably read a 0.05 mm text, which is usually called "microprint" and is used in various IDs or on some paper money.
The size is very, very small - you see a big "microscope" on DX pictures, but it's real height is less than 3 cm. You can carry it anywhere and anytime in your pocket - it's useful if you wish to check large bills anywhere.
The light is very bright, and it is very useful - you have to put the magnifier very close to the examined item, so you need a powerful light source. The LEDs are just OK. And the UV light is just a must have.
Cons:
It is very, very small, so it may seem some kind of unconvenient to use. Please note that the size is less than 3x3 cm! It's not "super mini", it's "super-super-mini".
The "silver" paint of the body is not quite good - it easily scratches. And the fake leather bag is a real shame.
Other:
Bottomline:
A very good magnifier if you have the usage for it. The price is very, very good, a real bargain.
