Question about Prime Entertainment QX-5 Microscope

Considering purchase but worried about the software

Hi I am considering buying this for my son to use for his science project but I am worried about the software - I have read reviews that it is difficult install and run and that it changes your computer resolution, etc. Can you contact the manufacturer directly? Do they have any patches for this software? I also read you may have to run in win98 mode or something. I am not a computer expert and my system is loaded already. I am trying to prevent major headaches and explore in advance, what intelligence is out there on this. Also I am open to other comparable models, such as the Celestron Digital Imager Microscope Adapter USB 2.0 Digital Camera #44420. I am looking at that at Thanks for your expert advice. - a mom running out of time to help her son complete this experiment. Thanks,

    Thanks for your input. I went ahead and bought a better quality microscope as my son is 13 and going into HS. It came packaged with the Ulead software for $129. It's a My First Lab Ultimate scope. Made of metal and it came with the digital eye camera and software.

    Thanks again, - Donna

This microscope does not run on vista(has a gliche in os it self) however it does work on xp sp2 and below as far as the resolution if you have enough memory no problem if not it will make your computer run slow while the program is running easy to use my 8year old son can run it and pretty much figured it out on his own even taught me a few things cause I was to lazy to read instructions.

    Better choice because the digital blue has its limitations, although it is good for grade school. Have a good day.

I am considering purchasing a Funai Full HD UpConvert DVD Recorder/VCR Combo. I have a HD Phillips TV with HDMI connections. I do not have cable - just use over the air TV. How do I connect the Fun

Purchase a DVD recorder/player that has a HDMI cable connection and use the connections on the TV so you'll get a hi def picture. RF will NOT give you a Hi Definition picture even if it's up converted.

Dlp chip replacement

This is one of those interesting and maybe amusing urban myths.

The DLP display chip if you could even find and purchase the correct one is well out of the range of being a repair even the most well equipped shops would even consider attempting.

The special part and the equipment needed to replace it (forget using chip quick and an isolated soldering station) just are not cost effective or practical at all.

Most who wanted to do this had a unit with pixel issues and considering that many but not all optical engines can be purchased rebuilt under exacting conditions what is to be gained here?

My view is if the display IC package is bad either live with it, replace the optical engine or buy a new set.

Just my views and do not represent the views of or some other "experts".
