Dark spot on LCD,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron 44340 LCD Digital LDM Biological Microscope (Camera)I ended up returning this item for a replacement because it had a dark spot in the middle of the LCD. Once I received my replacement it did not have a dark spot but now there was debris internally that could not be removed. I ended up sending it back for a refund. However, I did order another style of a Celestron Microscope without the LCD screen. I give this product 3 stars because the concept and viewing options for this unit is incredible. It is also very easy to use and very lightweight. it just so happened I did not receive a "keeper".

Thanks for the review. I read that you got another kind of Celestron with LCD. What did you get. Do you feel it is better than this one, the 44340?
I like the idea of the LCD so I haven't got to attach it to my laptop.

I ended up getting the good "old fashion" type microscope by Celestron. This is the one I purchased my daughter and also wrote a review about: Celestron 44104 500x Power Advanced Biological Microscope. I thought the idea of attaching it to the computer would be a benefit, but it was more of a headache. Good luck!

Thanks, I'm leaning in the same direction - get a regular compound scope (trinocular). Then I can attach my camera to the third (up-right) ocular. I just want to be sure that all the oculars are parfocal (all in focus at the same time, even as you rotate the objective lenses). I hope your daughter enjoys her scope. I taught Biology for 30 years and today's scopes have improved markedly over the years.

Take a look at the Omax microscope. It has a built in camera and offers plug and play hookup to pc's and Macs.
