Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
As others have said, quite powerful, though the magnification is definitely not 30x - I can however use it to look close up at dandruff flakes
Other people I've lent it to have found it quite hard to focus or zoom in on a particular area (i.e. at what distance the magnifier and their eye should be). The field of vision is not very wide so you have to hold it quite steady if you're focusing on one spot. Also when mine arrived the screws were a little loose, and there was a bit of rubbish stuck underneath them.
This would more useful if it came in the form of hands-free attachment (i.e. something you can wear around your head). Particularly for soldering jobs.
Still pretty good value, build quality is also good considering the price. You might want to consider something else if you need both hands, as it's hard for someone else to hold it exactly where you want it as the slightest adjustment will bring it out of focus.
