    My vision is very very limited and this device is a life-saver. It allows me to read the daily newspaper without having to hold a magnifying glass. Even though it is portable, I leave it up on my dining room table for convenience so that I can just slide over and use it anytime I like (my mobility is limited too). I needed a little help to set it up because my eyesight is so bad. But overall it is a very helpful device, well worth the money.

    My Mom has been using Snow 12 for a year.The Snow product is easy use for her. She is 65 years old now and her vision is poor for years.

    I had a magnifier from other company. That one was nice but not as big as SNOW 12. I love the large screen. Comparing with my old one, the image in SNOW 12 is much more clearer and higher contrast. The best thing is no blur when I move my book and read. My old one was blurry if I do that.

    Snow 12 is the best magnifier for me. I used two electronic magnifiers before. As a reading device, a larger screen and comfortable reading angle are important. Snow 12 did it!

    A salesman from the low vision store near me came to my house for the demonstration of Snow 12. He also brought me a 12 inch item from Humanware and another one device from Optelec. Those two units are too complicated to use, so that I ordered the Snow 12. I spent ten or 15 minutes to learn how to use it. The image is sharpe and the price is reasonable. I referred it to my good friend last week.

    I purchased SNOW 12 for my student. He uses it for reading and writing. It can save many files and photos. He sometimes uses the speech function. Snow helps him a lot in his study.

    Snow 12 is my second digital magnifier from Zoomax. I love the small Zoomax Snow. Both of them are greatly helpful in my life. Thank you for your excellent service and product!

    I bought SNOW 12 for my Grandma as Thanks Giving gift. She has been using it for about 1 year. She said the product perfoms very well. Whenever she had any question, she talked with the ZOOMAX people and they are really helpful.

    I bought SNOW 12 and Luna 6 for my Dad. He prefers Snow 12. Its screen is bigger and the external stand is helpful when he reads a book. The luna 6 is kept by him, too. He uses it when he is in the kitchen or bedroom while trying to get the information on the bottles.

    Zoomax Snow was my favorite. I used the Snow for many years. When I wanted to buy a magnifier with big screen, I decided to buy the SNOW 12. Now. I have two Snow!

    I just got the Snow 12 today. It looks amazing! Everything in the box is awsome. After trying it out for a while, I regret being lacking of this wonderful product in the past few years. I can’t wait to say thanks to your company. This is my best investment!

    One of my eyes is legally blind. Zoomax Snow 12 helps me study with high-efficiency at school. Thanks to the assistive technology, I am able to continue my study. It means a lot for me!

    My Dad had a ZOOMAX SNOW 7. It helps him read everyday. It is also good when he needs to sign his name on the bill. But for more writing, SNOW 12 is much useful. There is the space, so that he could write as before when he had normal vision.

    I have a student using ZOOMAX SNOW 12. This device is a good helper for him. He reads faster and is able to complete his homework every day. He is now thinking of buying another Snow 12, so that he could have one at home and another one at school. I am so glad that I recommended the SNOW 12 to him when he asked me for help. The reason of writing this comment is to tell the kids that this product is absolutely necessary for student with vision loss. They will catch up in the class and find it easier to continue the schooling.
