Pros:
This microscope is a very easy to use tool. Just plug it in USB and you're ready for viewing. It has very handy light and focus adjustments, making it really quick to view anything. The fact it is handheld and displays the image on a computer screen makes is a big plus over traditional optical microscopes, where you have to stay curved over the target sample. The unit comes with a plastic ruler for calibrating the size of the viewed objects and the software for windows which comes with it allows you to measure the ruler and set a scale for pixes x mm, so you are able to measure the real size of the viewed objects at a given focus. It is TOTALLY LINUX COMPATIBLE (this is a BIG plus for me!). To use it under Linux just use the UVC webcam driver.
Cons:
Was broked stand plastic.Probaly cracked in cargo. -No long usb cable. -bad stand.Metal-metal- plastic. (down to up).Can be broke your microscope stand.
Other:
Worth the money. If you need cheap microscope for soldering, stamp collecting, craft of jewellery ....bay it
Bottomline:
Good device to check details in other equipaments or documents easy to use than a microscope
