Comments about Illuminated Magnifier:
I used this at night in a car to read the map so I didn't have to use the overhead light (which distracts other drivers); also used it to see the key slot on the car door! I can't use store-bought reading glasses because my eyes have different seeing abilities---this takes care of that. I can read fine print, menus, instructions --- and used it to see a small splinter. I also like this handy little gadget because it fits in my purse and doesn't take up much space...I've used it to see what's in the bottom of my purse! The light is a blessing and the device fits well in my hand...good buy!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had other magnifiers that worked OK but you had to keep moving them around to be at the right level for clear magnifying. This one establishes the level for you and is convenient on a desk top. Doesn't take up a lot of space. I will take it on my travels with me.

Poor quality magnifier
from Vallejo, CA
I bought this to magnify the fine print on labels, etc. It does help with fine print but the quality isn't good. It's plastic and there were some scratches in the sides of it and a strange smudge like defect in the center of the lens when it arrived. The switch for the light is very stiff and would not easy for some people (e.g. someone with bad arthritis in their hands) to operate. I'd prefer a higher quality product and one that is made in the USA and this one is not.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

I should have looked more closely, when ordering.I am surprised to find the magnifier has a plastic skirt and I find it difficult to move it around to print. Or to store in glove compartment for traveling.

Disappointing as it is too bulky and awkard to use
Bought this for a dear friend with failing eyesight and it was a great help for her to retain her independence.
