It's pretty cool. About what I expected for the cheapo price of 20 bucks.

It's OK at the lower magnifications but it looses a lot as it gets to 400x. You can see in the attached photos how it blurs as the zoom increases.

It's a little hard to focus since the focus knob is on the unit itself and the unit is very sensitive to any movement. It would be nice if the software had a focus feature. The app that came with it is pretty lame but it allows capture of still shots and video so I guess that's about all it needs to do.

I'll do some experimenting later and post the results.
