    Veho USB Microscope - Anyone tried one of these?

    After fighting another losing battle with the diabolically cack Digital Blue microscope software, I have resolved myself to replacing the blasted things. Was having a quick look around and have seen these being sold by a few retailers:

    Veho VMS-004 Discovery Deluxe USB Microscope with x400

    Anyone got one? Any good?

    I bought the 200x one a while ago from Maplin. The software is very basic, image quality isn't very good and I remember permissions errors installing it (I seem to recall the setup failing trying to put a short cut in the start menu for all users). I haven't really used it since and I go back to the (even older than the digital blue) Intex QX3 microscopes with their superior form factor (most specimens need illuminating from below, not above).

    I bought on of the "Veho" things from Maplin, and found that it would do what we wanted, so I ordered 4 more. They arrived significantly different, but with software that would allow measurement of the image. Not done more than play with them myself so far, but they seem OK. Installing on the teachers' PCs may be the test...
