Very simple, entry-level price point provides accessibility for automated lensometry, printer comes standard, all lenses measured.
…very simple display looks more like a retro video game, older looking design and brittle plastic.
Buy this if automated lensometry is needed yet budget is on the bare-bottom end of things.
We promise that despite the CL-2000s retro arcade look, it is very much a lensometer. We here at Acme can’t change the arcade stylings of this unit, but we can remove the urine-stained coatings on the plastics and make it looks (almost) new. With that being said the CL-2000 will be forever simple and perhaps too simple for some. A black and green analog monitor provides limited lens measurement data and its bulky design will keep reminding you that it is a bit dated. With all that being said, the CL-2000 does exactly what its supposed to do- and we don’t see a reason why it won’t for another 5 (or so) years. If automated lensometry is necessary, but you have a very limited budget, this certainly could be the right fit.
