Rated 5 out of 5★ by 321qwer321asdf Works as advertised. Considering the price point of this model, it works perfect. Could not ask for more. 05/28/2012
Rated 1 out of 5 Not what I expected from a Vivatar product The saying, "You get what you pay for." could never be truer. This microscope is a waste of money (It's going back!) It's extremely difficult to focus, the slides are cheap plastic and have flaws in the viewing portion. The tools are made of plastic and are useless. My 7 year old granddaughter lost interest within ten minutes of attempting to use this microscope. Any child interested in using a microscope will be frustrated and disappointed with this set. My advice is to spend a bit more and get a better quality set. 12/27/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by MrsBG Christmas Present I purchased this product as a Christmas present for my niece. I am unsure of the quality of this product, however I am told it is used often. It was a great rate for the product and arrived quickly to the store I requested it shipped at. 01/17/2014
Rated 1 out of 5 Does not focus properly I tried several times and with several different items only to be disappointed that the focal area was not nearly sharp enough to be clearly viewed. 12/30/2012
Rated 1 out of 5★ by davestl17 Don't buy this if you want more than a toy. I regret purchasing this as a gift for a teenage boy. The slides and slide covers are made of plastic. The covers are extremely thin and seem easily damaged, even just by cleaning them. The focus is poor in 150x and 900x, while the 450x was just slightly better. I did not find 20 pieces. If you include the box, instructions, and packing material you might get close to 20. 12/25/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by lobman I knew it was inexpensive, but was Really disappointed even though the price was so low, I did not have high expectations, but it was useless. Could not get it to focus clearly and just wasted my time. Bought it for a grand kid, but never gave it to her after trying it out as I didn't want her to be disappointed too. You don't even get what you pay for with this one. 02/18/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by mpsangel This microscope is nice for the price that I paid for it. The tools that come with it are plastic and the description said it came with a hard shell carrying case, it did not. My son loves using it and I decided not to mention my disappointment in the product to him. It is a good microscope for beginners though. 01/03/2013
