A note regarding the small gooseneck stand which is included with the microscope...
Feedback from users and our own testing has revealed that the small, basic gooseneck stand included FREE with the Cosview MV200UM microscope has limited reach and can sometimes droop or lose vacuum. That’s why we offer a choice of quality stands including a larger gooseneck stand with greater reach and excellent stability. Due to its high magnification and small field of view, the microscope needs to be held in a steady position. We recommend purchasing this or another of our sturdy stands to provide better images with less effort for nearly all possible applications of the microscope.
I would give this a 4 ranking for use on PCs, but I bought this for use on Macs which both this site and Cosview claimed to support at time of purchase. However, 320 x 240 is the maximum resolution available under OS X according to my experience and as eventually confirmed by Cosview.
Cudos, though, to Saelig for prompt agreement to refund. They were unaware of the problem.

We have been using MiView Digital Microscope on and off for over a year now. One of the biggest reason I enjoy that microscope is because it connects to your computer and you don't have to look through eyepiece lenses [which make your eyes hurt]. Seeing the components of the circuit board on a large screen makes it easy to see and fast to spot errors.
We at Mathis Electronics concentrate on inspection and testing of our circuit boards that we design and assemble.
The quality of Saelig products is great and we love to see what new products they have for sale. Keep up the good work Alan!
