Some limitations but cool and great for the price.

Great for the price. No fine adjustment but that would only be an issue at very high power. There are fine movement controls for the slides. You have several magnifications digitally on the monitor at every lens power. Screen is clear. There are 2 light sources one from the top one from the bottom.
The monitor controls are awkward in terms of saving a picture or a movie or viewing something saved as some buttons have dual purposes. It connects via usb to a computer but I havent figured out how to view it yet. Probably just need to find the SD card. The instructions are poorly written. 5 sample slides are included but no blank slides at all. You need to buy some slides and cover plates. I returned the first one because the monitor had become off the base and the second one was good but the 1 G D card did not work so I just bought a new one. That is probably a rare occurrence. Be careful when unpacking it. Has a very nice case. Overall it is pretty cool.
