Tried it on two different computers: Result is the same. Machine recognizes the new webcam and all I get is a black image. Tried installing the software, adjusting the lighting, moving the slide, adjusting focus, etc. Waste of money.

Really huge bang for the buck!
While this microscope isn't a $10,000 lab-grade instrument, it's far more than adequate for students and home tinkerers. The substage direct illumination and the back illumination are both great. The focus is a little touchy, but once you've got it, the image is stable and clear. Plugable doesn't mention Linux in their product description, but the microscope works fine with ucview, ffplay, mplayer, vlc, and possibly others.
Attached are a few photomicrographs I took with this 'scope.

Terrible image quality
I got this as a birthday gift, and had them return it. The image quality is terrible, far worse than my cheapo 1.3MP Celestron USB microscope, and the all-plastic build is flimsy.
