Features not Correct – Portable USB 5~500X 2.0 MP CMOS Digital Microscope with 8-LED Illumination - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
Not very expensive compared to other options. Build quality is pretty good and stand is awesome (even better than the camera itself). Still images at native resolution are fairly decent.
Cons:
First of all, native resolution is not 2 Mpx, it is just 640x480. Plus, video capture is not at 30 fps. Therefore, if you move something below the camera, you will end up with some lag. For me, It is not useful for me anymore, as I wanted it for soldering some small electronic components.
Other:
Product is not well described, so you think you buy some features but get others (and they are worse).
Bottomline:
Nothing to add
