When the magnifier arrived I was surprised at the lightness of colour, in images you can kinda see it is a grey colour, not black, but it definitely appears black at first glance. In the flesh it is obviously grey.
It is very light, but despite that still feels well made. The sliding action is very satisfying, akin to the satisfaction from a zippo lighter, The magnification is good. I will be primarily using this at work for reading the small numbers on micro sim cards, and the IMEI numbers of phone handsets, and this will easily fit in my trousers unobtrusively.
