Can't fault this product, exactly what I wanted, does the job admirably and speedy delivery. Surprising how this can be marketed at such a low price

A simple, magnifying glass that is great for reading the tiny print on the back of packages, enlarging text on computer screens that does not respond to zoom level adjustments, finding that tiny item that you dropped, or whatever.

This is a solid, well-made item that has no built-in lights that need batteries, and no extra gizmos to go wrong. It just does the job of magnifying.

Free delivery was first class. The product arrived within a couple of days.

Good solid and simple construction, as you expect from Chinese goods these days. Difficult to see how it can be manufactured and shipped for such a give-away price!

A five star review suggests that you "love" the product. I doubt that even this magnifying glasses mum could say that of little Astro. Instead, she would draw attention to the quality of the lens, the price and it's overall fitness for purpose. If you are looking for a magnifying glass to help you read tiny print on instructions or such like, this will do the job well. I you are thinking of using it to read the newspaper then personally I'd go for something more expensive. I'm 100% happy with mine.

Item arrived well before the delivery date cutoff, well packed and in perfect condition.

Works as described and with good clarity. My only slight grumble is that nowhere does it say what the magnification is, not even on the packaging. However, it appears to be 2 or 3x and for under £3 total, this is perfectly fine. This is good for magnifying text to help someone to read, but for anything finer, a more powerful magnifying glass is required.

I already had a magnifying glass, but it's quite small - the lens is only two inches in diameter - and it's quite ornate to look at. It's the sort of thing you might leave lying around on the desktop to look nice, but it's not a great lot of use. Its limitations became more evident when I wanted to read the small print instructions for an item I had just purchased (a calculator). The pages of the booklet were only narrow, but I couldn't view the entire width of a single page without having to keep moving the glass left and right. So I went onto Amazon and found this item. The glass (and it IS glass, not just plastic) is four inches in diameter, and the handle is another four inches long. It's 3x magnification, and I can now view the entire page of the manual I was looking at without having to move the glass at all. It's not the prettiest item you will ever see - the handle and glass surround is black plastic, and there is no pretence of making it aesthetically pleasing. It is robust and practical, and does the job perfectly. And at the price quoted I can't speak highly enough of it.

A marvellous glass for the price. The optic gives good magnification whilst remaining completely in focus. A first Class purchase.

The pros:
Good value
Prompt delivery
Useable quality
The cons:
Lens acrylic, not glass
Handle too short
Slight distortion
One improvement would be a sleeve to keep it in, to prevent scratches.

Seems fine though it had already had been opened but it does the job. Price was very reasonable so can't really complain. Received very quickly as well.
