Product did not suit our needs
from Merritt Island, FL
We wanted to use the magnifier in home office, but could not set it up on the TV in there. Did manage to set it up in sun room, but found the amount of the page magnified was too small--only a word or two at a time, making reading a whole book (or even a page) very tedious. The gadget is a great idea, but needs to give more reading area.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I am returning the product

The magnifier works just fine. However, the area magnified is small. It is so small, that the mouse-like scanner must be moved when reading even a single sentence in a single paragraph of a one column article in a newspaper. That characteristic is an annoyance at the very least, and makes it difficult to keep track of where you are on a single newspaper page. If one raises the scanner above the page to get a larger view, the entire scan goes out of focus. So, one is stuck with a smal area scanned even though it reads perfectly on the TV screen, one half a sentence at a time.

Like an electronic miracle
I purchased this for my mom, who is losing her eyesight to macular degeneration. She is 75, so her learning curve can be extreme, especially with 'electronic gadgets'. This was very easy to set up, and she took to it like a duck to water. Now she can continue to read all the things she hadn't been able to for a while. I've tried other products for her, but this one is definitely the best.

if you could make it to show more of the reading material, that would make it perfect.

Best magnifier I've ever used.
from Carrollton, Texas
This is the greatest gadget for aging eyes that have difficulty reading small print. Use to read your favorite books with ease.
I would buy this product again.

Great to use for all print, but especially the fine, tiny print.

we needed to use the device to aid in reading the newspaper. I have tremors and can't hold the paper. the print on the TV was too large and the area scanned was too small to be workable.

We would have to take the charging cord from the back of the TV in order to charge the hand unit and then put it back, every time the hand unit needed to be recharged. There should have been two cords. We would have to move a 70" TV out from the wall to charge this item. We are over 80 and that is just not possible for us.
