Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is truly excellent as an aid when soldering surface-mount components on printed circuit boards. I actually prefer it to more expensive magnifiers such as A23HR and A40GB. The inset lens (X4) must be positioned about 8 cm above the object for maximum clarity. The positioning of the main lens (X2) is much less critical. The LED light is very bright and can be positioned independently of the lens. This is one of those products that you use and then ask yourself "How did I ever manage without it" !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was contemplating the ?ъ25 metal task light with magnifier built in, and the ?ъ17 visor with the separate lenses and built-on head torch. This little fellow, however, allows your 48-year old eyes to see the fiddly bits of iPhone you're mending with wallet and dignity relatively intact. The lens is surprisingly usable even with what I felt was going to be a low 2x magnification - the aspherical design means things don't go utterly weird at the edges, and the LED light is powerful enough for small jobs although you can expect a blue-ish white light. It'll sit on or clamp to the worktop quite happily. As suggested by the previous reviewer, the 4x inset lens is a bit of a fiddle to use, but once you've positioned things so that you can peer through the 20mm 'window' it's pretty handy. The separate bendy swan necks for the light and lens work well and make it easy to get (re)positioned quickly. My only minor quibble is that the USB cable is a little short at under 70cm - I found myself having to be very careful how I routed the cable from the laptop past the myriad small screws carefully stuck to coloured post-its, various spudgers/screwdrivers etc to its clamping point, so that nothing got knocked over. But hey, at a tenner it's nothing short of brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this because I struggle to read small print. I am delighted with it. The magnifying glass is of great quality, with no distortions & the LED light is a bonus. I would recommend using it from the USB power source as the LEDs are considerably brighter than unswe battery power. Please be aware that the USB cable is very short, so a USB extension cable (Maplin Code: L06BT) is a useful.addition

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful This magnifier is useful, but could have been so much better. The X2 lens helps a bit, but a X3 or X4 would have been so much more useful. The 4 LEDs really are a bit weak, and do not really light up the work area covered by the lens. On the other hand it was cheap enough, although I would have paid a bit more for higher magnification and better lighting.
