    Limited, but great for the price!

    Pros: Sturdy for the price
    Easy to install and use
    Does what it says it will do
    Great photos

    Cons: No on/off switch
    Only one magnification level

    If I could I'd give this four and a half stars I would. Great little gaget for the price. Very easy to install and use. A very quick install on Mac Maverick. Nice, clear photos. Great fun. My husband is excited to bring in bugs from the garden to see what exactly is eating his tomatoes. It would be a good gift for children wanting to explore nature in more detail.
    The half-star deduction is because there does appear to be an off/on switch you plug it into the usb slot and it is on, lights and all! I'd like to leave it permanently plugged in, but off for my technologically impaired hubby. Also, there is only one magnification option. However, for the price, what does one expect? All in all, a sturdy well-working device.

    Pros: Easy to use even by kids
    Low cost
    Works better than expected

    Cons: Really no major cons, the only thing I would mention is that the software can take a little time to recognize the device.

    I bought this 41 power microscope for my three grand kids (all girls ages 5, 7, and 9) as a gift for what we call little Christmas (which is actually January 6th) and gave it to them yesterday Jan 4th. I didn't know what to expect, after all it was just $15, nor did I know how the kids would react. But boy was it a hit!!! They played with that thing for about two hours looking at dead bugs, lint, hairs, wood surfaces, their skin, etc. whatever they could find to put under it and look at magnified, they did and they had a blast with it. They even took about 20 pictures of different things. And I must admit I was blown away at how well it worked. Heck I even played with it as did the kids father. It was worth twice the price, and at less than $15 on Monoprice, it was hard to pass up. This turned out to be one of the best and most inexpensive gifts we gave this year. Thanks Monoprice.

    - no heat is generated from the LED light. Can use on delicate items.

    Cons: - can't turn off or dim the light

    Excellent device for the price. See a lot of application for this.

    Pros: No nonsense setup. Easy to use.

    I really didn't need this. But I'm glad I purchased it. Got my monies worth already. From the enjoyment I get from using it for different applications.

    Pros: Very clear, very good resolution. Compact. Interface is simple.

    Cons: Limited resolution. Comes with a CD for install only.

    This thing is cool! It is definitely a novelty as I have no practical use for it at the moment. But it's still awesome that this thing exists and at very low price.
