Great gadget – 60X~100X Zoom Microscope with LED Illumination Light Reviews

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

Pros:
Very good build quality. Uses reflected light unlike conventional microscope. Thus you can immediately watch interesting textures and things around the house - cloth, pills, coins, needles... Kids just love it. Conventional microscopes require cutting a very thin slice but this microscope does not, because it uses the reflected light. The picture is very clear.
Cons:
The LED flickers randomly, although only occasionally. The picture is reversed just like in conventional microscopes. It would be nice if the picture was right side up. The microscope pouch is very, very poor quality.
Other:
Auto-turn off feature would be great to save power because kids forget to turn power off.
Bottomline:
Great for kids and can have some professional uses - looking at banknotes, precision mechanism, insects, printed circuit boards, the list goes on. A magnifying glass on steroids. Overall very cool.
