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.

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.

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.

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.
