I just got it from Amazon, you can also find it on Ebay. It uses LEDs and has a big lens that is 7.5" x 6.2". It's a 5 diopter (2.25 magnification). I replaced a round 5" florescent magnifier (same magnification) light that was a little shaky whenever I put it into position. This new one is rock steady. It has variable brightness too. It uses 9 Watts and is 680 lumens. The "buttons" on top are touch sensitive. In fact they will work when your finger is about 1/8" over them. Anyway, here's some photos.

Nice lamp! I've got one from a few years back (a personal indulgence) and it's paid for itself many times over already.

Curt - I use a 'craft jewelry' head strap magnifier which are not too expensive and though it takes getting used to it is also a great help but it doesn't have a built in light source.

I once tried to combine the two - doesn't work, lol.

Thanks for the info Kats, I'll have to pick one up. Using 3/4pair of glasses is a real pain.

Nice. I like the 'toilet seat cover' it has. I have to keep cleaning the dust off my lens when I want to use it.
