Good Microscope for this price – Portable USB 2.0 20X-800X 2MP Digital Microscope with 8-LED Illumination - Black Reviews

Pros:
Good price and quality, easy to install drivers and use it. It has a big resolution (up to 2048x1536) and a two levels of light.
Cons:
The maximum magnification I could get - approximately 380 (in maximum resolution and minimum dpi - 72). Well, it's good, but it's not 800 as described... Besides, it has only 2 magnifications: the minimum (20X) and the maximum. I couldn't get the other medium magnification. Also usb cable could be a little longer and stand holder a little heavier
Other:
Frame rate 30 fps only in resolution up to 1024x768. In the 1280x1024 - 15 fps, in the highest resolution it's only 5 fps. I think it's normal, but it's not described.
Bottomline:
Really good compact microscope, especially for this price. But, unfortunatelly it's not real 800X.
