I can't find anything wrong with this light. It is a 'craft' light but shines at fixing all manner of electronic devices. The size of the magnifier allows for large area viewing. The value of the battery-power mode should not be overlooked. You can disconnect from the mains, connect to the battery pack, and take it wherever you like without having to plug in - i.e. it is portable in floor stand mode as well as in clip on or desk modes. With the three modes, and generous height adjustments, it probably copes with most reasonable circumstances. It is solidly built. Mine came with one of the connectors in the battery pack missing. An email, rapid reply from Julie, and 2 days later the replacement unit was in place. It seems well worth the price.

Bought this to help me complete a cross-stitch. As I've got older and needed to use reading glasses for fine work, I have found it increasingly difficult to work on cross-stitch embroideries. The light itself is good and helps a lot, and the magnifying glass means no more squinting at the fabric when trying to count the threads. It takes a bit of getting used to but is well worth it. The only drawback was that once the light had arrived I could clearly see a couple of small errors in my work (split or miscounted threads). However it was then easy to see to do a bit of unpicking and I completed the remainder of the design much more quickly than the part I had worked before getting the light.
