This LED-illuminated magnifier provides a 30% larger field of view than traditional circular lenses. The rectangular, 8" x 10" acrylic lens magnifies without distortion, allowing you to quickly scan with both eyes. The scratch-resistant lens makes objects appear three times their actual size and 12 LEDs cast expansive, bright light without the glare common to fluorescent and incandescent bulbs, resulting in reduced eyestrain. Mounted on a flexible gooseneck, the lens can be raised, lowered, and twisted to the optimal position for reading, detailed crafts, or other up-close work. The floor-standing unit’s weighted base counterbalances its head to prevent tipping and a handle on the magnifier lets you maneuver it easily. LEDs are rated for 50,000 hours. For an optimal view, hold pages parallel to the lens. Rechargeable battery provides eight hours of continuous light from an eight-hour charge with the included AC adapter. 57" H x 28" W x 12 1/4" D. (9 lbs.)
The Cordless Wide View Illuminating Magnifier comes with The Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee. If this product ever disappoints you, for any reason, you may return your Hammacher Schlemmer purchase for exchange, credit, or refund.

Not worth it
from Browsntown, MI
Appreciate the adjustability. But the "glass"/magnifier picks up glarewhich distracts and the circle pattern on the "glass"/magnifier is verydistracting.We purchased the wide-view illuminating magnifier for my 85 year old Dad who enjoys reading very much. But the magnifier distracts rather than helps.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Disappointed. Too bad I threw away the b
from Cleveland, OH
I wish I had saved the box. This magnifier has LED lights, which seem dim. Maybe there's too much surface area to illuminate, but it actually cast shadows and made things harder to see than the naked eye.

Not as good as it sounds
from Santa Barbara, Ca.
This lamp was not useable, could not be assembled securely enough to try. There is no thread on the post to connect it to the base. Even if secured, it would fall over. The obvious lack of thought in assembly and design is not of the quality near what I expect from Hammascher.

product didn't fit need
By the neighbor
from Oshkosh, WI
This product would be great for someone with a slight sight deficiency. It was easy to assemble and easy to use. However, for someone who has to bring the reading material very close to the glass, it doesn't work because it throws shadows on the page making it impossible to read it.
Good light magification for reading
from Birmingham, AL
The light works great but be prepared to place a weight on the base to keep it from turning over. The base should be heavier or bigger!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Mom can see to thread a needle again!
By Happy in Indy
from Columbus, IN
It will take Mom some getting used to working with the lamp. With her medical issues she has not bee able to do the two hobbies she loved the most, reading and writing and sewing. Now she can thread a needle even with her one blind eye! She was thrilled! This is the second one I've purchased the other was for my 100 year old Grandmother. If you are not able to use your eyes to fulfill task which filled your free time working on hobbies this is the magnifier / lamp for you! I do wish the LED lighting were brighter or there were more of them. We are thankful Mom can do things to fulfill her day!

Not What I Expected
By Queen bee
from Bellflower, CA
I was disappointed with this product. I was expecting a higher quality magifying glass, with brighter lights. Also, the pole does not bend enough to accomadate my needs as a beader. I was so excited when I first saw the picture. Step up the quality, even if I have to pay more money!!

Cordless Wide View Illuminating Magnifer
from Flagstaff, AZ
we had to return this item. it didn't work well for my mom. she couldn't get it situated in a comfortable position for her to read. She has macular degeneration and glaucoma. We couldn't bend the neck low enough for her. Besides all that, I thought it was nice looking, lighting seemed good and would be a good addition to any room.

Best gift I bought this year!
By Irish Chicago
from Chicago, IL
Purchased this as a gift for my Mother who is older and has slight vision problems. She can now read the morning paper from cover to cover with ease. She loves to sew and can now thread a needle with ease and see her entire project with both eyes because of the huge viewing area. She absolutely loves this and I get all the credit for buying it !!!
