Best at this price – 8-LED Illumination 230X Zooming USB Digital Microscope with Dock Stand and Tripod Reviews

posted by HonzaG on 01/28/2012 Certified Owner

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
Other:
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
