I would recommend this to a friend.


from Carol Stream, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is great for the beginner. It is so small and compact you could use this in a small closet. Would be great for a portable darkroom setup.

Skip this one!


from UT  -  Photo Enthusiast

It is hard to take out and put in the negative carrier. Very cheaply made, but I guess you get what you pay for.

An excellent enlarger for its price!


from Urbana, IL  -  Photography student

I looked far and wide for an enlarger that would suit my needs without costing too much, and this one was perfect! I have had it now for one year, and it still works perfectly. It is easy to use, yet has wonderful results. This is an excellent product to invest in.

Good starter enlarger
