worth the money – 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:
Good for soldering SMD and inspecting PCB. Good LED light. Work with generic WEB CAM drivers and imaging software.
Cons:
Stend is OK but not easy to adjust. Focus range is not: 10mm ~ 500mm as stated but 10mm - 170mm. It is imposible to take good still images with build in button (red one) because you move microscope out of focus.
Other:
I use freeware software DScaler for viewing and capturing images (use L key on keyboard). This way you avoid vibrations
Bottomline:
Worth the money. If you need cheap microscope for soldering, stamp collecting, craft of jewellery ....bay it
