Supereyes B005 0.1X ~ 200X Handheld USB Digital Mi&hellip by Supereyes
The microscope is OK once you get it working. But the software is a bit of a nightmare. I spent many hours struggling with it.

I ran into some problems installing this, but as I've never even used a wireless router before, let alone installed one, I'm probably not typical. On the other hand, the BT engineer who installed my FTTC connection couldn't work it out either.
The very brief printed initial setup instructions that come with the router suggest over-writing the pre-installed DD-WRT firmware with what they call "user friendly firmware" using a setup wizard on the supplied CD, but I… Read more
