    I really need to stop buying random stuff off Facebook... Anyway thought I would share these units, managed to get 3 different skews for $80. 2 x Black and white (one with LCD, one with CRT). One is full colour but the resolution sucks so I put that one aside. I have toyed with picking these up from time to time for a while but wondered how useful they actually are.

    Now you can judge for yourself! I would say this specific unit is definitely useful when sitting back from the screen a bit but could certainly do with a higher resolution and colour (newer model?). Surprisingly the lens assy is made in Japan and colour capable apparently so there may be a way to hack them to full colour but nothing stands out immediately...

    What I do like is it fits neatly on my tool bench and can be used for electronics repair or tool inspection. The table moves in X/Y for panning and has some sort of infrared reflective LED for edge illumination
