Only 20 to aprox. 200X – Portable USB 2.0 20X-800X 2MP Digital Microscope with 8-LED Illumination - Black Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- It's a really microscope;
- Two levels of light;
- Can use in absence of light (useful for oblique light observations);
- Good english manual.
Cons:
- Some two magnifications: 20 x and about 200 x. The remainder is given by the software;
- There is a gradation in the body of the microscope that is inconsistent with the magnification and should not serve as basis for determining the increase in image;
- It did not work on my laptop (Celeron M processor with Windows 7 32), but ran flawlessly on a desktop (Core 2 Duo with Windows 7 64).
Other:
There are several similar products on DealExtreme, I believe that there are only changes in the presentation.
Bottomline:
Good for children, scientists (entomologists for example) and CSI enthusiasts...
