Better than expected microscope.
We had purchased another microscope and it was mostly plastic. We couldn't adjust the focus easily. Fortunately, we saw this one online and for just a few dollars more it came with a plug-in LED light source, much better optics, and was easy to focus. This will work just fine for our middle school aged granddaughter. Beware of the microscopes where the light source is powered by 2 AA batteries. Not enough light to see anything.
Better than other reviews led me to believe
Needed a microscope for school, the reviews kind of threw me off and stressed me out so I waited to order it until the last minute, browsing all other choices. Turns out it works fine for what was needed I believe, general college biology. Sure will have to get a better model for use in later classes in the future, but short term and for this class in particular it was perfect. Would have to get better one in future for the magnification will not be strong enough. So overall, don't be skeptical in buying, really worked great and got the job done for the price despite the skeptics.
GREAT FOR KIDS!
My 3 year old is slowly losing her mind in self-quarantine, so I decided to get her something that would catch her curiosity. This did it! She's wanted to see everything under this microscope, from fruits and fur to insects from her mom's plant collection. It's a fun and easy to use tool to keep your kids entertained, and introduce them early to things they may take a strong interest in later. For the price, this was a great purchase!
Cheap, not great for college
I felt this microscope was too cheap. I did buy the cheapest one I could for school but expected it to work a little better. Perhaps because I was using it for college level stuff rather than elementary things. It was hard to find the field, some specimens did not look great. I also keep finding sticky stuff around the lenses.
Easy to use and great quality!
I ordered this microscope to use in my college biology course and it has been wonderful. I didn’t use the prepared slides all that much, but they were wonderful to view!
Smelled like it was on fire ..
Would give 0 if it let me !!!! Used it one time second time my daughter went to use it the light had smoke and smelled like fire hard to believe it had the high reviews it did .. starting to think AMAZON BOOST THES REVIEWS TO MAKE MORE MONEY so much for doing your research... my daughters had theirs bacteria all ready and planned this day to look at it very disappointing
Great value, questionable quality control
I bought this microscope for homeschooling. It seems to be a great value, except for the 40x objective lens seems to have some quality control problems. I'm not sure if it is adhesive on the lens or if the glass is cracked, but it renders that lens useless.
Good starter microscope. Easy to use with good light source
introduced my 6 year old grandson to the micro world
Great for teenagers
My son loves this, did need to buy other bits for full use, can complete experiments he wanted to.
lighting doesn't work
bought for my grandson on his 8th birthday .. lighting doesn't work.. don't know if it's the adapter or bulb .. no matter how much we tried we couldn't get any clear image .. planning to send it back .. luckily he has more toys to play with to take his mind off it although he is disappointed
Great starter microscope
Got this for my Daughter who is 8. It's very well made and is easy to use. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a low cost microscope that works well with a variety of magnification levels
Best for blood testing at home.
Good item to keep at home.
Bastante bueno por el precio
Llegó bastante rápido, al día siguiente del pago, aunque es algo pequeño (30 cm) vale la pena, tiene muy buena óptica y está hecho de metal, la luz es muy buena y tiene un diafragma para regular la iluminación, los portaobjetos son de vidrio, si se alcanzan a ver células, microorganismos y fibras (la foto es de una pata de mosca con uno de los aumentos más leves)
