I had a loupe prior to getting into electronics.  They used to be very useful for slides and negatives when used with a light box.  Haven't had to use it for that purpose for 10 years so it's now in the electronics lab.
I will never ask you to do anything that I wouldn't do myself.

Check warranty terms. See if they have a factory warranty. What they had last time I bought was a dealer warranty. Once of that was enough for me. The company won't back their own $#!+3 directly.

My experience with Seagate laptop drives that have a platter: they are noisy; they run hot.
