    Carson OD-95 reviews

    OD-95 5x MiniBrite Pocket Magnifier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it! Powerful small magnifier with excellent quality for the price. I like that the cover slides over the viewing area to keep it clean and dust off while stored. Also, when slid open, it automatically turns on the small light which is more that adequate for helping resolve detail close up. I'm surprised this produce doesn't cost at least twice as much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHOLEHEARTEDLY RECOMMEND! I'm SO glad I found this item--I'd been looking for a hand-held lighted magnifier for some time now, as it seems type is getting smaller every day; or maybe I'm just getting too old to read it < grin>. So I bought it...well, actually I bought 3 of them! I'd put one in my cart for myself, then it occurred to me that Hubby really needed one, too. Then it occurred to me that Hubby, who is an engineer, might like one for his tool box. He is very pleased with both, as am I with mine. The magnifiers arrived just yesterday and I've already used mine several times (including in the kitchen, checking ingredients contained in various food items). On the plus side, these magnifiers truly are small enough to keep in a pocket or purse. I'm keeping mine in my purse, which I always keep next to me, and expect I'll need it to read the menu the next time we go out to dinner at a lowly-lit restaurant. I also appreciate the fact that there is a switch for the light itself, so I can use the magnifier unlit when there's enogh light but the text is too small to read. I will also probably use the light of the magnifier as a flashlight when I'm out and about and need light. We'll also definitely take at least one magnifier with us when traveling, especially internationally. Further, the magnifiers seem durable: I dropped all of them repeatedly while installing the batteries, and they all survived. On the minus side, the batteries are a bit hard to install. Plus, AAA batteries are expensive, although you can find them for less using the internet. I can't say how long the batteries will last, but I hope it's for quite a while. And I'm 99.99% sure I ordered the magnifier case in black, but received cases colored dark green--no problem, really, just a bit of a surpirse when unpacking the box they arrived in. Bottom line is that this magnifier, while small and simple, truly does it all. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I can see! This makes for a great way to read small numbers at a dark podium. I got 10 of these for our restaurant and the cashier is much happier that they can see.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little magnifier I am a video engineer for an AV company. Sometimes we have to set DIP switches during setup of our shows. This magnifier is very helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory! Very useful item to have with my camera gear. Use it often in low light situations.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but filmsy Nice clear lens, but really filmsy plastic body construction. The plastic moves and flex pretty much everywhere. Really not much different from a dollar store quality. Such a waste for good design product. Really overpriced for what it is imo.
