The advantage of an electronic magnifier (video magnifier) is that they light up, you can vary the magnification, you can change the colour of the print and of the background, you can even 'freeze' the picture (like a camera picture) and study it at your leisure. The advantage of this particular is that it's small and neat enough to carry in the pocket.

{Pros & Cons}


Old model, good price

Small size, easy to carry. I could even suggest that if you have severe eye problems - buy a large digital magnifier for reading books and magazines and buy one of these to keep in your bag or pocket for when you go out.


The small size limits you to reading only a few words at a time - obviously; you can't squish several lines of text onto a tiny screen and make them large.

The buttons are small and fiddly, anyone with shaky hands or arthritis will not be able to operate them.
