4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product but Lacking Manuals, July 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AmScope M158C-E Compound Monocular Microscope, WF10x and WF25x Eyepieces, 40x-1000x Magnification, Brightfield, LED Illumination, Plain Stage, Includes 0.3MP Camera (Misc.)
The microscope came with a USB eyepiece to allow images to be captured by computer. The mini-CD installed software but when clicking on the install software option "Camera Drivers" an odd error message in what appears to be Chinese appears. There was precious little documentation on how to use the image capture software. I finally did get it working but it should have been much easier. As for the microscope itself it's a good product and works beautifully. Once I got the image capture working the pictures were clear and even the videos were better than might be expected. If the documentation had been better I would have given the package 5 stars.
