    I got what I was expecting and maybe even more

    Pros: Good lighting especially at 60x.
    small and doesn't take up much space.
    software seems to work well.

    Cons: I end up pushing the picture button on the top of the cam by accident. It actually is the whole top of the cam that you can push and easy to do by accident.

    If you think your going to get professional results with this, then you should be buying a pro scope for hundred or perhaps.thousands of dollars. For what I paid I was not expecting much but I find the scope to be suitable for anything I might want to look at or need it for. The picture at 60x is pretty darn good and even at 250X is still not bad.. Nice little thing to play with and it works well.

    Nifty little high power camera!

    Pros: Adjustable LED brightness
    Still, video, and time lapse modes
    Neat base, but also works freehand

    Cons: 640x480 image is not huge
    Limited depth of field, but that's probably unavoidable

    For the money this device does a great job of super-macro photography.

    A lot of devices like this are either unlit, in which case arranging enough light for such closeups becomes a real chore, or they have super bright lights that wash out most images. The adjustable brightness of the LEDs means you can get pretty good color on very dark and very light colored subjects at both resolutions. This is great.

    60x and 250x are two good choices for magnification. Since this is not really a microscope but a super-macro camera those aren't really the same ratings as you'd get with an optical microscope, but they're useful comparison. At 60x you can make your little fingernail fill the screen, great for big pictures of small objects. At 250x you can see the texture of paper or fabric and, lots of detail on skin, etc. You're not going to be able to observe microbes with this, but you can learn a lot and have a lot of fun.

    The OS X software is a little odd, but only a little, and it gives you great choices. Time lapse photography was not mentioned in the product description, but I can't wait to try it out. You get a lot of control over the frequency of the shots.

    A lot of microscopes have fussy focus mechanisms, but this one works really well. It's not hard to focus, and it holds its position. It does have a limited depth of field, that is, it focuses on a very specific distance from the lens. This means that if you are looking at an uneven surface such as a rock with an angled surface only part of the image will be in focus at one time. This is pretty typical with microscopes because you're gathering light from a very small space, and if you have a small aperture to give you more depth of field you need a lot more light. This generally isn't a problem, but it means you want to hold things so the camera is looking at a flat side, not angled.

    The stand is neat. The suction cup and good neck work well, they aren't cheap, you can put them where you want them and they stay there. The grid and rulers printed on the base are very handy. The camera itself pops in and out of the arm easily for super closeups. The focus grip is nice and big, and the brightness control is labelled. I can't find fault with the physical production of this camera.

    The 640x480 resolution is pretty small compared to today's monitors and phone cameras, but they're still plenty big to see what's going on. You're not going to win photography awards, but you're going to get your work done.

    I would recommend this device as a great value for the price if the resolution is not a problem. If you need big images you're going to need to spend a lot more.

    Super fun

    Pros: The stand works great, the LEDs are very bright, the picture is clear, the magnification is as advertised, the software is easy to install on both Mac and Windows, the light is adjustable and the focus ring is easy to use. I also like the button right on the camera since I don't have to worry about where my mouse pointer is while I'm walking around with my laptop looking for things to "microscope." There's also a ton of settings to adjust the picture, resolution, etc.

    Cons: Minor quibble: the camera button is a little finicky sometimes I have to press it several times to get it to take a picture and sometimes I manage to hit it by accident. Would be nice if it was an actual button with tactile feedback.

    I thought the price was too good to be true. Nope. Super fun little camera that works great.
