This was my first time using the LED light source vs. the higher intensity bulbs, and there was a bit of a learning curve. There are times under high magnification while using contrast that it seems as if the bulb is a bit underpowered, but once I got used to it there was no problem. I love the fact that I can charge it and use it without the cord in the way. I would say the pro's highly outweigh the cons and would recommend this scope in a heartbeat!
Pros: easy to use, easy to set up, and no cord
Cons: LED is not as bright as the halogen, but that is to be expected.
