The 10x magnification makes it perfect for soldering and inspecting smt. I was able to hand solder the 208 pin 0.5mm pitch Xilinx Spartan 3 FPGA used on my HPSDR board in under 5 minutes which included inspecting each pin. If you do any serious smt work at all, you may want to consider purchasing a similar microscope. I was amazed at the difference it made in speed and comfort while working with fine pitch parts. (Price is about $214 + shipping).
