    Pros

    I saw this at a neighbor's and ordered 2, one for me and one for a friend. We are both happy with it.
    Expensive especially with shipping but received it in a timely manner and it works great.

    We were watching one of the CSI programs and noticed that they used the same magnifying glass in the lab on one of their shows.

    Not a practical product
    Pros

    Product appears to be durable and well made
    The lights work well

    Cons

    Field of view is way, way, way too small.
    Not practical for most uses

    General Comments

    This product is probably useful if you have the exact application for which it was designed. It in not practical and has no value for most common types of magnification uses. You have to hold it so close to what you are trying to see that the field of view is basically worthless. I which I had not wasted money on this product.

    Besides, the postal service return the registration card that I got with the product indicating that it was not deliverable to the company at the address on the card.

    Sporty's product are usually much better than this one.
