Need a screen magnifier for a PC

Postby UFGN » Sun Sep 04, 2011 9:43 pm

Does anyone know where I can buy a clip-on screen magnifier for a flat screen monitor? I need one for work. I dont want magnifying software, it needs to be a physical one.

Thanks. Ive had no luck on Ebay etc.

Like them?


Well yeah but Id like to buy it off the high street if possible. Work will pay for it. They are more money than I expected them to be...I hope the boss doesnt mind lol

Just wondered if anyone already has one or knows someone who uses one

Is it for your eyesight or something H&S related?. If so, work should be buying it for you anyway mate... Not you buying it and then them paying for it.

Surely if you just tell them why/what it's specific for they should be getting you the 'best one' regardless?

Yeah my eyes are shite. But its a long process getting them to buy it. Theres a gvmt organisation that chip in 50% but you have to fill in forms, wait etc. f**k that. It will be much quicker if I just buy one I like and they can pay me back.
