I really like this makeup mirror. It has great magnification on the fold out sides and the magnetic pocket mirror that comes with it. It is very easy to put together. You can use the USB cable to use the lights in the mirror or you can use batteries. The only problem I have had with this mirror is that it is top heavy. If you lean the mirror back and bump the mirror or table slightly it falls back. If the base was heavier it wouldn't be a problem. Otherwise I really like everything about this mirror.
