    Not bad!

    posted by bylrarzeitnt on 11/23/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a compact tool and works very effectively as a microscope. The microscope consists of two parts: the viewing tube (scope) and the light. There is the scale marking on the field of view, which makes it very convenient. It is down to 0.02 mm in increm...
    Cons:
    If you're clumsy, you might accidentally flip the sections apart and turn on the LED, thus wasting batteries. The image is proj...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Works quite well and provides a lot of fun. Very easy to see the details of fibers in your clothes. The light is very effective and comes on when you pull the barrels apart and turns off when they are together. So you can't accidentally put it in the case w...
    Cons:
    A lower magnification would be more useful. Mine is actually 100x and DX said they were shipping these as they had had problem ...

    excelent microscope

    posted by davidsch on 04/05/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Excelent optics. Very easy to use. As I see it,it's also well built. I just took it off the bag, easily put two AA batteries in (they last for ever), put it on my jeans and after a second of focusing I was seeing fibers of a few microns width. Then I took a...
    Cons:
    Really, really nothing. When I was a child I got a black microscope, x400, that was very expensive and had to prepare samples o...

    - Great price. - Very fun to play with. - Uses standard size batteries. - The LED is very useful. I can even use the microscope in the dark. - WIth the scale markings, you can even measure the stuff you are seeing. I don't expect it to be too accurate, howe...

    Pros:
    Gives very good magnification 80x Works well as a skin microscope to check edges of mole Built in LED can be a bit iffy, but works well and is bright. The white led illuminates the field quite evenly. Scale markings good for measurement

    need to dismantle the entire led torch section to insert / change the batteries. I worry about the lifespan of the plastic and ...
