A must have for mid-range AmScope stereo-optic microscopes.A very effective, well made, reasonably priced accessory for stereo-optic microscopes.Stereo scopes are commonly used for viewing opaque objects: rocks; coins; macroscopic dissections; watch innards, etc. Consequently the stage is usually lit from above. I have an AmScope stereo 'scope that is has lights both above and below the stage -- unfortunately, with certain objectives the upper light is actually partially blocked by the objective. The fix for that is either an expensive external light mounted off the one side, or a ringlight.This ringlight uses LEDs, which is a nice complement to the halogen lights that came with my 'scope. It mounts easily above the objectives, and distributes light evenly over the stage. The intensity is adjustable from nearly full-off to full-on, via a small rotary control. If I were going to change one thing about this light, it would be to have it plug into the microscope base itself for power, rather than running a separate cable to yet another wall wart. Can't have everything, I guess. Otherwise, no issues.Once I installed this light, I find I use it almost all the time. Very useful, and recommended.5Some design issues. AmScope LED-56S-ZK is the better choice.1) The screws are metal, but the body is made of soft plastic. My light arrived with one of the screw holes stripped out already, making it impossible to securely tighten the light.2) The other issue is that the plug from the AC/DC transformer that goes into the light body protrudes out about 1.5". This interference prevents the light from sitting square with microscope body. (See attached images)It's a good light with nice dimming feature, but since I can't mount it securely or orient it the way it was intended to be used, I am returned it.AmScope LED-56S-ZK on the other hand has the same brightness, reinforced screw holes, doesn't have an external AC/DC power transformer, doesn't interfere with the microscope body, and costs less. It's everything I wanted in a ring light.2simple but effectiveComes with a plastic light ring adapter and the unit works fine. The cable is long enough to be routed alongside an articulating arm, but the power unit barely extends past the c-clamp base of the arm. I didn't want a loose cable for the light interfering with me moving an articulating arm around. There has been some negative comments about the plastic construction, but I think it's fine because I don't want to spend more for a simple light. I was able to use desk task lamp as a temporary light. It worked fine, but this ring light cleared up some real estate on my bench so it was worth the cost.5Not as bright as I had hoped.I purchased this for my AmScope SE400 microscope. This scope has a large working distance of about 8" and therefore requires a bright light to illuminate at such a distance. I have mounted it to the rectangular lens simply by friction fit (I just pushed it on until it stayed, no screws required). This light is great at eliminating shadows as I use it for micro soldering, but I still rely on the original gooseneck light for extra light. I use the 10x lens most of the time. I don't think this thing would illuminate enough by itself for magnifications higher than this. I figured for half the cost of the name brand light, I would give it a try. It appears that the LEDs are angled to focus on a single point about 2" from the lamp, so it very likely would work fine for a standard scope not meant to be worked under. Seems well made for Chinese quality, but I haven't torn it apart to check out the inside. I believe I'm going to repurpose it for a gig-pan macrophotography rig I'm building. It should work great for that.3Good light source but bad power adapter designThe ring light comes with a plastic mounting ring which attaches directly to the microscope. If you have a barrows lens on your microscope, the mounting ring screws onto the bottom of the barrows lens.The light source is very good and has good dispersion coverage.The only issue is the 12v power adapter. There is no way to plug it into the LED ring without stressing the plug because it doesn t clear the microscope frame.You could install the light rotated a bit but that seems stupid. A better solution would be to have a right angle plug on the power adapter.Fortunately we had such a power adapter in our parts drawer and use it in place of the one that came with the light.In the attached photo, the stock power adapter plug is see on the left and the adapter we used in on the right.4I am very pleased. The LEDs are very bright (as bright as ...I just received this item today. I have only spent 15 minutes, or so, using it so far, so this review should be considered an initial impression and not necessarily indicative of the long-term success you may experience. Overall, I am very pleased. The LEDs are very bright (as bright as you are likely to ever require, in my opinion) and give off a very even, wide angled and clean light with no flicker. The brightness control works well and the light level can be adjusted anywhere between off and blinding. As much as anything, I am really happy that the light appears to be about as close as you can hope to natural daylight (I haven't noticed any yellow and very little to no blue in the light it produces). My only concern is that the plastic through which the thumbscrews pass is relatively soft and seems like it could be stripped out if you aren't careful when tightening the screws. For the price, though, this thing seems great. I recommend it.5Good enough, pretty bright serves it s purpose.The scope I bought didn t include a light, decided to go with this one after getting frustrated trying to figure out which one fit and what the differences were. It s good enough. I don t find it to be poor quality and I don t see how you ll strip the screws on it as others have complained about, maybe they ve updated the design. Anyway it s plenty good enough for my needs. Only complaint I ve got is it should have been included with the $600 scope to begin with, they can t have more $10 in this thing. I get they are in business to make money and are trying to hide the true bottom line price of the scopes, but it just leaves a less than perfect impression of the company. At least I knew up front I d need this so both arrived at the same time, if I didn t and had to go and immediately order something for my new scope to actually use it I d be a little mad about it.5I really like this lightedit: added the images for a fix so the scope and light sit square as well as an image for the distance between the light and the amscope mount. Also just noticed that they no longer ship to my area? How odd.I really like this light, it is has a smooth variable adjustment and gets quite bright, however, there are two things that it could stand to have improvement on. The first being the lack of metal inserts for adjustment. This should not be a problem however as once you install it, it should never have to be moved. The second issue is that the power cord, which is a 12 volt wall wart has a plug that is too long to allow you to install the unit square with the scope. I fixed this with the use of a small "extension cable" that has a 90 degree angle one one end and a straight connector on the female end. The plug is a 5.5 O.D. and a 2.1 I.D. pin. I made the extension with a couple connectors that I had on hand as amazon for some reason feels that these connectors "require special handling and cannot be shipped to Alaska" (you get used to just making things yourself up here as a result), but you could easily find such a cable here on amazon when you order this light. After installing the 90 degree short extension, I am able to place the light square with the microscope frame and the entire feel changed as now I have access to BOTH the power switch and the adjustment without having to reach up under the microscope in an awkward fashion. If the plastic does eventually strip out, I might just grab a couple T-nuts from the hardware store and fit them on the inside of the light so when installed they push out on the ring securing it. . Hope this helps someone :)4The LED light ring, helped me get rid of lines in my camera picture due to the 80 LEd light ring that I returned to AMscope.Much better than the 80 LED ring from AmScope, and much cheaper. Some complained about the ring being made from plastic, and yes it feels cheap, but then it is cheap. The screws that tighten it to your scope go onto the black ring you see in the picture. That ring must fit your scope, or you will have trouble getting this LED light ring to hold one. The screws can't be tightened very much, because you will break the plastic that they are threaded into. That black ring has a groove cut out around the edge, so you only have to tighten the ring so the screws are in the grooves, they don't need to be very tight to hold on. So it might be the people who could not use the ring, or did not try to use the ring that had the most trouble with this light ring. The 80 LEd ring from AMScope put lines in my picture from the camera. The sad thing is that their tech support could not help me get rid of the lines, so the ring was defective, and i needed to return it. AMscope made me pay to return it, it cost me $15 to ship it back. It was heavy because of the metal control box. AMScope has some pretty shady business practices, so beware as you shop. Returning defective products should never cost the customer money to return. At AMScope, you will pay to return any defective products.5Very good light ring for low distance work.I like this light ring for my amscope Sm-4b. It works very well. The brightest is well bright enough! The variable brightness knob is very useful,and helps to get the best view on your project,depending on how much light you need.One thing people don t really seem to mention,is that at a longer working distance(like with the 0.5x Barlow lens),the quality of optics is greatly deteriorated. The lights from the ring are angled and designed perfectly for the 4 inch working distance the Sm scopes provide. But when you go to 8 inches,the angled lights shine DIRECTLY onto what you re looking at,from all directions,and this causes gray distorted colors. When you hold the light ring in your hand,you could see this. Have it aligned with the head of the scope,and move it closer to your object(for me it s a circuit board I solder on) ,and you see it gets colorful and clear,since the lights shine around what you re looking at. But when you move it farther away,the angled lights have more time and distance to cross over and shine across each other and directly onto what you re viewing. This causes the gray and reflective distortion. A gooseneck may be best in this case,or somehow attach the light ring to hang down from the scope so that it is 4 inches from the object of view.I only mention the above to help anyone that gets the ring and is confused about optics being grayed. I saw a review on here about that. They probably used a Barlow lens. Perhaps the 0.7x wouldn t be as bad since it s a 6.4 inch working distance.Otherwise,this light ring is very useful. For the price,I can t argue!5
