        I am using the PocketViewer since autumn season. It is handy. It is easy
        to use. It is only W/B and B/W display. All battery, display, camera, and
        lights in one unit. You can carry it in your pocket or purse. It costs
        $900 in USA. Remember it has no color. It is really different design
        than others.

          Michael,

          Yes, you are right I remember I tried it to the laptop but not work. You
          are right.

          About 2 years ago I bought OPTi (cctv-like with PCMCIA for the laptop).
          It was perfect one but it can not see any red in B&W display. I returned
          them back.

          I never see them again. I do not know what happen.

            The last I heard about the Opti, the company wasn't selling them but was
            working on a redesign of the system to make it work better. But that was
            over a year ago. It could be the product line was just dropped but I really
            don't know for sure.

            Michael,

            Yes, you are right I remember I tried it to the laptop but not work. You
            are right.

            About 2 years ago I bought OPTi (cctv-like with PCMCIA for the laptop).
            It was perfect one but it can not see any red in B&W display. I returned
            them back.

            I never see them again. I do not know what happen.
