Ooh, this one takes photos: OMAX 40X-2000X Digital Binocular Biological Compound Microscope with Built-in 3.0MP USB Camera and Double Layer Mechanical Stage Is OMAX any good?

From Wikipedia: "With an optical microscope having a high numerical aperture and using oil immersion, the best possible resolution is 200 nm corresponding to a magnification of around 1200×." So, I searched for 1000x optical microscopes and found a AmScope 40x-1000x on Amazon. Has anybody used this brand? Will this be sufficient?
