That's strange about coming up in Spanish.

I get it in English.


I tried to find another listing and found only one. It was a bit more expensive (around $10 more) but I went through about ten pages at 100 items per page to find it.

It's like the truth.......it's out there!

Glad you found it even in Spanish.

Adios

English for me also.

I read some of his negative feedback and it seems that at some point in the past, the devices were either 2 megapixel or sold as 2 megapixel, which caused a complaint or two.

The magnifiers are now listed as 1.3 Megapixel

One or two complaints that the unit was lost in shipping; the majority of people who got one were happy.

Just my 2d,
Kirk

BUMP

Not exactly stamp-related, rather, family-gift-related, but has anyone used a screen magnifier of the type used to increase the size of the image available on a mobile telephone? And can you recommend one? The reviews on Amazon UK are all over the place. Many thanks.

Hi Geoff,
my colleague, whom specialised in Kangaroos, swears by a little program to enhance screen views of Ebay listings when he wants to fly speck.

I didn't care for it myself, dashed if I can find the source of the tiny program,
yet "agent ransack" found it on my computer, and just called "magnifier"

If no other members offer anything, I can ask my fellow in january.

Ah, Rod, thank you, but this is something different - sits on a table-top with your telephone positioned behind it, comme ca

jbcev80 and rohumpy,

I once did an audit of Norden. They had a complete bombsite in the lobby! As far as I know (20 years later), its still there. Norwalk, Connecticut.

Hello.
The magnifying glass is in the briefcase that I take to the Saturdays gatherings, In house I use this electronic microscope, it is genial.
Regards.

Many thanks - but I'm not looking for a microscope. This is a simple device that maginfies what's on a mobile telephone screen to make viewing easier.
Regards.
Geoff

Geoff,
I get the feeling "gadget" from reviews I have seen.
If you can stand this gentleman, perhaps fast forward a little, he seems to give an overall rounded opinion......

My suggestion: Save and buy a "Tablet"

I notice in this thread that a few people own, or recommended, the Optex USB digital magnifier. I have one of these and it worked really well until I had a recent computer failure and now only have a Windows 10 operating system. The old driver does not work and so far I have been unsuccessful finding a driver for this magnifier. I am wondering if the other members that have this device have been able to find a driver for this device. It would be a real shame to have to throw this into the trash due to a driver issue.

PMStamp, these digital microscopes are pretty much all the same. If you can't find a Windows 10 driver online this link may be helpful:

Thanks. I have gone down that route through Msft without any success. I have checked other Optex discussions and the only suggestions are to change the OS back to Windows 7 which I am not going to do. So I may be out of luck unless someone who has one of these can point me to an actual working driver.
