4.0 out of 5 stars Celestron 44310 LCD quality Dec 20 2011
By h.l. - Published on Amazon.com

I wanted a device to use in the field to take pictures of aquatic insects and upload them to my computer.The aquatics are returned unharmed to the stream. Once on the computer I can create a power point program. This device does the job and does it far better than the reviews would indicate. The device is not perfect. True, one must be careful with the battery cover. This is not an expensive instrument. I don't think it would take careless handling. Further, I think the user must be thouroughly familiar with the instructions to use it effectively. However, in spite of low expections set by reviews, I could not be more pleased with the end result. My rating reflects my satisfaction with the end result. And what is the end result? It is a detailed image of a tiny macroinvertebrate in full color swimming in a drop of water.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, I took the chance and bought it, ... June 25 2016
By Bob M Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

OK, I took the chance and bought it, here are a couple of Items I noticed a few people made comments on.
I used it for looking at mineral specimens, I balanced the battery cover on something solid, and tilt the microscope at a 45 deg angle, to get a steady focus, when you take the picture hold the pic button for 4 seconds and it takes the pic,no need to click the button, reduces the shakiness.
Battery cover, push down when sliding and stop after a 1/4" or yes it might break off, (Poor design) the battery markings are missing on mine.
To change the menu and shut off time, hit the M button then the down button while on picture mode,that brings up the menu. Read the instructions as there are several settings you can change. I put my pics on a SD card that fits in the unit, they are really clear on my screen, don't go by the little screen, (It doesn't do it justice) Here's a pic of some gold on quartz, and a Topaz I thought was a rough diamond (Wife says "Nope")
One more thing I noticed, on the quartz sample, it's appx 1.5" x 2" piece, the gold follows the vein down the face, the microscope will only focus on a flat plane, no depth of field, so everything past the surface will be fuzzy.

SD slot doesn't work. After I inserted the card I can't get it out anymore. And, it won't turn on at all. This is just a cheap piece made in China... Stay away, don't buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I have mixed feelings about this unit! Sept. 16 2011
By SilverCore Labs - Published on Amazon.com

I bought the unit against my better judgment after reading some of the reviews. I unboxed the scope and proceeded to install the batteries. Ooops, battery door broke first time I used it!!! There is a serious design flaw with this cheap flimsy battery door that has two tiny plastic clips which are extremely weak and break easy. Once this door is broken you have to tape it shut in order to get it to hold the batteries in place. This is all before first use!!!

After I taped the door closed, I proceeded to turn on the unit and setup operations to my like. All the functions appeared to operate as published and the video and still images are fairly good. The case is built a bit cheap and I feel it it were handle in any rough manner it could break. The LCD quality was good also, better than I have seen in this size before on other products. All in all, If you don't have a problem re-engineering the plastic battery cover to actually work well then the unit may serve its purpose. Would I buy another one? Probably not.
