  • Pretty fun tool/toy

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

    Pros:

    Pretty high quality image and magnifies very well. I had no trouble installing it on my Windows 7 64 bit machine once I figured out what to do.

    Cons:

    Instructions that came with it weren't good, but it didn't take too long to figure it out. Stand would be better if it had more adjustment capability and was more sturdy.

    OtherThoughts:

    I got this to view and take photos of coins and other small objects. It looks like it will work perfectly for taking pictures of coins of all sizes. I'll also use it to look at bug and other small items with my kids.

    Once I had the software installed and the unit plugged in to my computer, I was looking for an icon to click to start viewing, but I couldn't find one. Eventually I pushed the button on the microscope and it worked.

    Bottomline:

    Basically will be used as a powerful electronic magnifying glass and camera for taking close up pictures of things.
