As always, I read all the reviews and the specs, so I knew that this would be a small item - and it is! And that makes its' powerful magnification all the more impressive! I got this to view hand samples of rocks, minerals, and fossils at a high magnification, for at home or even in the field - and it hasn't disappointed! You're getting a powerful magnification in a very small size - pretty impressive, and very useful and usable!!! PS - I got one each for me and a friend who also loves rocks and minerals and fossils, and I'll be getting another one or two as extras!!!
It works great for both coins and gems and rocks. I would recommend this to others. This items is to be used close to your eye, my husband has a hard time adjusting to it. After just a few uses I found it easy to use and with the X45 it gives a great picture of the item.
This item appears to be sturdily built with good attention to detail. The lighting is excellent. The head of the unit (where the lens and lighting is located) is fairly heavy, so be sure to tighten that joint so it does not drop onto your work. I highly recommend this product, and plan to buy another one for myself soon.
