Songmics 5x Magnification Wall Mounted Mirror

Songmics 5x Magnification Wall Mounted Mirror

The mirror has been made to a very high standard and quality. It is 5x and I thinks 3x may have been enough as you need to get quite close and some of the parts near your ears are slightly out of focus. The good thing is I no longer need to wear reading glasses to shave. There are a couple of minor design faults. The screw holes on the back plate should be elongated one horizontally and one vertically especially for fixing to a tile surface. I had to make rough washers out of card to put behind the back plate as the small screws to fix it to the back plate did not line up.

Arrived quickly and properly packed. It is of solid construction and attaching it to the wall it’s easy and straight forward. I have only given it a 3 star as it does not reach far enough when extended. Ideally, the shorter arm it should have been longer by at least another 2/3 inches. The choice I have made to go for the 5X magnification is the wrong one as you have to be very close to the mirror, somehow not comfortable, to have a proper undistorted view of your face. Staying away from the mirror even at 12/14 inches distance the image you get it’s distorted and not very clear. However I did not deduct any points for this as it was my own decision to go for a 5X magnification. I would say that 2.5X magnification is more than amble for shaving. I will revert after a few months with results as to how well the chromium withstands corrosion due to condensation.

After en-suite re-fit, we needed good, powerful new wall mirror for my shaving, boss’s make-up. Chose this as x5 magnification, made of brass, swivelling arms rather than expanding trellis, large head.
It really is very good, not expensive, should last. As others have said, mounting wall bracket has some rust, but treated that during fitting.

Love it, solid stylish and easy to fit. The chrome finish appears to be very durable and the mirror a perfect size, much more useful than many I have come across in hotels. I purchased it as a shaving mirror for my en-suite but it seems to have been taken over by my wife as a make up mirror. She normally use the family bathroom with its full wall mirror. Just proves what a good product tis is
