          The size and weight are perfect. The AA batteries make it light weight. I light is just right to see the ear drum. If you did not want to buy more caps, the ones that come with it can be washed. They are durable and twist nicely into place. The mag. glass can slide out of the way. The carring case is nothing to brag about, but since I do not use this often I do not mind. I think that if the flap could come down for a tighter fit I would like it a whole lot better. Everything else is very well made. Very happy with Diagnostik brand and price.

            I was a little apprehensive when purchasing this otoscope for home use. I've used cheap ones before, which were next to useless. This price is at least half of what big name ones will run, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Once I put the batteries in, however, I found that it not only will work for home use, but probably for professional use.

            It's very easy to setup. You simply install two AA batteries, screw the top back on and turn on the switch. The light is very bright and makes it easy to see the ear drum.

            My wife is an NP (like the other reviewer) and thinks that it works just as well as the ones they use at her clinic. In fact, she's going to tell her colleagues about it, as she cannot believe how well it works for an inexpensive otoscope.

            Our kids both have tubes, and this makes it very easy to see if the tubes are blocked as well as how the eardrum looks.

            I'm not sure how long the AA batteries would last with constant use (professional setting) or how durable it is, but for home use it will definitely do the trick.

            One thing to note is that the manual that comes with it does not explain what to look for when looking inside of the ear. You'll want to search on the internet or ask your physician to explain what you're looking for if you're unsure.

                I am a NP and use this at home for the kids. The bulb is very bright and only requires 2 AA batteries. Very portable!
