  • Fun and probably eductional

    posted by drboyd

    Easy software install on Windows XP, but I'm jealous because I didn't get the free virus on my disk like everyone else did.focus is adjustable via the thumbwheel. I'm guessing the button is to take a snapshot.Enough LEDs for good illumination.
    Good fun! I'm thinking about getting a bunch for family nextChristmas, except for the Windows 7 install issue noted in another review.
    I've got five bucks that says you look up your nose with it the first time you plug it in!
  • User shoukd know how this microscope works

    posted by drrk24

    - software is easy to install and simple to work with- no complex operation or functions- easyly set into operation (when understood how it works)- satisfying picture quality
    How it works (simplified):the optical system is figured by 2 planes - sensor on one end / object on the other - and a lens in between.The picture of the object is by this reproduced on the sensor surface. The ratio of the 2 distances to the lens define the magnification.However, for a sharp picture the distance between both ends is not constant ! It varies with the ratio. By this you get two fix-focuses for the same total distance (w/ vice versa position of the lens). Between both, total distance must be shorter, which is inside the device. So you get a low and a high magnification !
    For me it's worth the price !
  • great product loads of fun

    I love it, it is much more powerful than I expected. The inbuilt lights work well and it has a dimmer that allows adjustment of the light which is helpful. The arm is sturdy and the base is heavily weighted for stability. It can be used without the base and arm as a standalone unit which is in my opinion and added benefit, it enables you to look at samples or things that would be impossible to inspect with a conventional microscope.
  • Excellent Microscope!

    - Extremely compact
    - Easy to focus
    - Bright LED light
    - Scale markings
    - Great for kids, too!
    I really like this pocket microscope. It has scale markings from 0 to 1 mm in increments of 0.05 mm. It is excellent for looking at small things outside (I found bugs in some moss and lichen that were too small to see with the naked eye) and it is cool to see the textures of everyday objects up close. It is similar to microscopes I used in engineering labs for Brinell material hardness testing.
    Small enough to carry in your pocket and looking at tiny things is very interesting. It would be fun for kids, too (kids old enough to be interested and not eat the batteries).
    Good buy.
  • Does not work with Mac OX

    Decent quality image with Windows. Seems to provide fairly sharp images. Capture camera is a nice feature.
    Really needed it for my Mac, didn't want to open Windows 7 on my mac every time I want to use it. There is a 5mp version of the same scope on another site for $79, and it does work with Mac.
