    What our Testers Liked
    **This review is a combination of opinions drawn from our testing groups across Scotland.
    Good for use in the kitchen to help follow a recipe while leaving both hands free.
    It can sit at an angle with one set of legs folded under.
    What our Testers Disliked
    Not so useful round the neck as it as you have to move it to get it to focus in the right place. To adjust the length of the cord, a screwdriver is required.
    The string gets in the way when you are opening and closing the legs.
    When magnifying print its not consistently clear and if using the light you get a rainbow effect on the page.
    What is Interesting
    It needs a longer focal range, but the option to sit the device at an angle was useful.
    What our Testers Said
    A little cumbersome but helpful for reading whole pages of text at a time.
