This is the microscope that replaces the standard eyepiece with an LCD screen that displays objects at up to 1600X magnification. A built-in 5 MP digital camera captures still images or videos and displays objects on a 3 1/2" thin-film transistor LCD at 320 x 240 resolution. The microscope's three objective lenses (4X, 10X, or 40X) provide magnification from 40X-400X (up to 1600X when used with its 4X digital zoom). Objects can either be illuminated from the top (for solid objects) or from the bottom (for prepared slides) using two separate built-in light sources. A colored filter wheel helps block out wavelengths to make objects clearer. The camera's built-in 128MB memory can store up to 120 still shots or up to 40 minutes of video at 1600 x 1200 resolution; an SD card slot allows for memory expansion. A USB port (cable included) allows you to download content to your computer; works with Windows 7, Vista (32-bit version only), and XP. Plugs into AC. 13" H x 6" W x 4 1/2" D. (3 1/4 lbs.)

Notice - this scope has no movable stage
By Vet Tech
from Fort Worth, TX
While the image quality and overall construction seem good for the price, the stage is not movable. There is no way to systematically scan a slide. The slide must be moved by hand, limiting it's usefulness in some situations. This is something that should be clearly mentioned in the description. Also, the scope is smaller than expected, but may be useful as a travel scope. Comes in a very sturdy case.

Innovative teaching tool
By Ruby the Lab Tech
from Temple. TX
It was better than I expected! The service was exceptional! However, since I needed it for medical mission trips and to do complete blood counts (CBC), counting 100 white cells on each slide was impossible. Other than that the product was really great! Very innovative!!! Keep up the good work!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Its a toy
from minot, nd
I thought this might be a useful diagnostic tool but its more of a toy. It is functional and "fun" and probably educational but not useful as a serious microscope. It probably was meant that way but I didn't understand that when I made the purchase.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Use the scope for detail coin evaluations. Love the ease of taking photos of the coin close-ups.
