Pros: it magnifies
Cons: not too well, definitely not an optical marvel
if you want an ultra cheap magnifier, perhaps for a child to use for show and tell, then that is your purchase.
For the money - it's tops

Pros: Not sure if it's 10x, but close enough.
Clear sides allow enough light in.
Cons: Some minor distortion (hey it's $3).
. I need this with some of the work that I do. Not perfect, but for $3 I don't expect perfection. You will need a good light source, but the clear sides help. I will probably buy another as a spare, I have been using it fairly often.
Works fairly well as long as you have a bright light

Pros: Inexpensive, compact.
Cons: Very small field of view, illumination must be bright and from a side.
I have used this magnifier a few times and it works OK, as long as you have a bright light illuminating the subject from the side. If the illumination is from above, like a ceiling mounted light, the glare makes it impossible to see anything. The field of view is rather small, and the image is very bowed at the edges.

Met my expectations for $3

Pros: Extremely inexpensive
Clear walls let in lots of light
Cons: So-so optics
I got these in bulk to give away, so I needed something cheap but usable. These fit the bill. I have a 10x Carson loupe that I was comparing these against. The Carson goes for about $11, and if you are just buying one you should definitely go with that. Although these were true to the 10x power in the very center, there was a lot of change in focus across the viewing area and a marked curvature, whereas the Carson has a much more regular image. In summary, there are noticeably better loupes available for just a few dollars more, but at $3 these are no rip-off.
