Amigo HD Magnifier

Amigo HD Video Magnifier

From the Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database:

Tools for improving the quality of life as we grow older — shared by the Tech-enhanced Life community.

 

Summary

This electronic magnifier displays the image on a screen unlike traditional magnifying glasses.  It can be held directly on the reading material or at a distance.  It has autofocus to adapt to any distance.  The color display is a 7-inch LCD screen.  The amount of magnification is adjustable from 1.4x to 25x, which is much higher than traditional magnifiers.

It weighs 1.3 pounds, which is much more than a magnifying glass.  The price is almost $1,000, which puts it out of the reach of many people.

Discussion and Reviews

 

from Passavant Circle (unverified) at July 28, 2020

Members of the Passavant Circle evaluated this magnifier and found the quality of the display to be very, very good. The buttons to operate the device are easy to see and use and the folding screen was very helpful in determining the proper distance for viewing. They felt that the price was higher than some others, but if you need assistance with vision they recommend the Amigo HD.

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the product or access the resource.

The criteria for adding products and resources to this database is that we think they "look useful, noteworthy, and interesting", and have the potential to improve life for older adults and their families. We have evaluated some of these products, in which case you will see links to a detailed review and or to explorer discussions about the product on this page, or inputs from explorers in the comments.

If the listing does not include reviews or explorer discussions, then we have not evaluated it sufficiently to be able to recommend it or comment on how well it works. If you research this product or resource further, and especially if you try it out, please come back to this page and add your comments.
