Seems to have fairly good range, optics aren't exactly lab quality, but very usable for small electronics repairs and such.
Tripod is kind of useless since it weighs virtualy nothing. It seems to move around and tip over a lot more than I would like it to. Focusing is a bit of a challenge at times, but I think this is to be expected from this type of design.
I used the clip for this that was provided with the tripod and attached it to some flexible coolant tubing with a base. It makes it much easier to control while soldering and adjusting small items.
For the price, I don't think you can do too much better. I wouldn't expect anything close to lab quality, but this thing is great for hobby and diy style uses.
