And thanks for taking to time to post this!
For the money it has been very much worth it. There's cheaper but I wouldn't want less then the 5MP. I like having both eye peices for the eyes so the trinocular was worth it to put the camera in the 3rd top slot. I like that the camera isn't built in so it can be upgraded or if I ever get a really nice DSLR I can swap it out. The x/y mechanics on it are really fairly smooth. I'm glad I went with the one I did.

For the home I think it's perfect. I'd love the 18mp camera they have out now for it of course.

Edit: oh yeah and the other thing I like is this one is LED and not halogen which while trying to look for all this life the halogen lamp would be baking it all. My previous scope was a crappy tungsten lamp which was better then mirror light sources I had before that which was my first microscope.
