Hey Guys,

I have a returned USB Digital Microscope here (older version than the one on the site currently).

There's a problem with either the software ("Brightwell") included, or the drivers. A really geeky person here could probably get it working.

In the box is what is included in the picture below. This product (as it is faulty) comes with no warranty.

Hence the reason we no longer stock and sell this model. Smile

Here are some "real-use-images" of this model I have found:

c71931f: I'd give you 15...


I'm sure Shaun would do that for you.

$15 + $10 Courier + $5 Handling Fee = $30 


Yeah?
