Great product! – Portable USB Adjustable 200X Digital Microscope with LED Illumination Reviews

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

Pros:
Seems to have fairly good range, optics aren't exactly lab quality, but very usable for small electronics repairs and such.
Cons:
Tripod is kind of useless since it weighs virtualy nothing. It seems to move around and tip over a lot more than I would like it to. Focusing is a bit of a challenge at times, but I think this is to be expected from this type of design.
Other:
I used the clip for this that was provided with the tripod and attached it to some flexible coolant tubing with a base. It makes it much easier to control while soldering and adjusting small items.
Bottomline:
For the price, I don't think you can do too much better. I wouldn't expect anything close to lab quality, but this thing is great for hobby and diy style uses.
