It is much smaller than I expected (which is very good), because I was afraid it being too big. But the one easily can carry it even in his or her wallet. So, the size is about two match boxes put one on another, and it is made from very thin yet strong plastic. The main lense will zoom about 3x, and additional lense (its the round shape lense in the main lense) will zoom ~5x. The lense itself is crystal clear, so theres no problem while reading. And theres a very thiny LED light bulb at the back of the magnifier to read in the dark. Actually, very lovely item.

It's a bit frustrating. Mine arrived in perfect condition and my light works (but for how long?) however what I find really frustrating is that it doesn't magnify the stuff I need to read at all! It will only magnify stuff that I can read just fine without it. (I don't wear glasses). Example: it magnifies my email font but the tiny writings online stay tiny and unreadable. Same thing with tiny writings on labels of my supplement: unreadable! There is a circular lens bottom left that magnifies even more but it's too small a surface to read a page or even small area so it's too frustrating and unpractical to work with that! What I'd like to know is why wasn't the entire magnifier made out of the bigger resolution or more magnifying lens like that circle lens? Or somewhere in between both magnifiers. Bottom line? I feel $9.95 would be way too expensive for this. I know they were giving these free a while back however I only paid a few cents for mine. It's fine for what it is. I will need to buy a Sherlock Holmes magnifier sometime down the road...

very weak battery

I ordered 4 of these. One of them was nice and bright, but the other three were dim. Maybe the battery in some of these could be old and weak? It's fine if you mainly need the magnifier.

The magnifier size is good and suitable to put in bag on the go. However the light is not working upon receive. So disappointing.

A little small but i reckon its good for quick use instead of long periods.

not as magnifying as I would like. Wont help much with super fine print besides the tiny little circle that magnifies to a larger size. See my page for more reviews and info

This is really handy but would be better if that little circle of greater magnification is larger. It is where things are clearest.
