        Comments about Celestron 44340 LDM - LCD Digital Microscope:

        looking at blood slides and thin sections;

        + the unit has a lot of magnification
        + the images aren't too bad on the screen

        - no fine focus & stage is twitchy
        - unit moves when you hit the Snap button, ruining image
        - unsteady base, have added leveling feet to it
        - PC interface doesn't work

          Comments about Celestron 44340 LDM - LCD Digital Microscope:

          Wow! Great microscope for the price!! It's very lightweight and easy to use and comes with a hard sided case that seems well built. It doesn't seem like it would hold up very well in harsh conditions so I won't be taking it on field excursions but seems pretty hardy for home use. Definitely not a microscope you would see in biology class at the university, but for the price AND being able to see objects at 1600X you just can't beat it! Highly recommended for parents/kids and biology nerds such as myself!

            This is an everyday microscope for nondestructive evaluation of surfaces. The LCD has sufficient clarity and the controls work well for detailed viewing.
