The KV5100V is ok but not if you want a clear picture. A vet came over and we tag teamed ultra-sounding the goats and his old tube TV unit was much more clear. I am not sure what to recommend but if I had to do over it would not be this one. I would probably get one that used standard probes as this one has a specialized connector for the probes which makes you limited in your choices.

Excellent value for money
I bought this model exactly 3 years ago. I have used and continue to use it for farm animal, equine (repro only) and small animal purposes, and it has not malfunctioned once. The batteries do last well after a complete charge, and the device is relatively easy to use. Picture quality/resolution is very good, for the price, IMO. I have only used the linear (rectal) probe, including improvising its use for small animal work, with generally good results. The small animal side of our mixed practice is not busy enough to warrant me buying the convex probe, but I will do, should things get much busier.
I had to make a bespoke wooden protective box and waterproof cover, to protect the device during farm/equine use, which took considerable effort. The device certainly isn't waterproof, but with minding, will last and serve well.

We are very happy with the Kaixin KX5100V. Have had no issues with it and works very well in ultrasound preg testing our sheep, used on over 800 head so far.

I tried out the Kaixin KX5100V ulrasound I bought today and I am very pleased with the picture quality. Love the protability though I will have to see if there is a neck strap or something to hold it up to leave my hand free to press the buttons to take measurements etc. However, as far as function goes I am very pleased with it so far.
