    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - very good magnification

    - solid illumination

    - works in linux (Ubuntu 9.04) without installing extra driver (appears as dig.camera)

    - tripod as bonus

    Cons:

    - if you want to switch from lower magnification to higher one (230x) - or vice versa - you need to turn by slip-ring quite a lot (almost to the edge position) so I am affraid of releasing of this part. It could be overused quite soon.

    - a tripod is not quite stable

    OtherThoughts:

    There is misunderstanding in description:

    10x~230x magnification means just two possibilities (+/- 10x and +/- 230x) not a range between borders

    Bottomline:

    Very good review was at http://www.freelabs.com/~whitis/reviews/230X_USB_Microscope/index.xhtml
