    Excellent quality and performance for the money

    Customer review by An anonymous customer

    5.0 stars by An anonymous customer

    I bought this microscope for a Christmas present after I bought a microscope and telescope set from Toys r us and found out that they weren't worth diddly. So I researched microscopes for a long time before deciding on this one. I figured if I bought one for them I wanted the best quality for the price- a low price. I bought it knowing it was on the cheap side, but at least I could use it and it was made by a company who made more than just toys. I am an engineer and used lab microscopes at various jobs and to my suprise this microscope had a very similar quality. I was plesently suprised by the quality and ease of use. It comes in a plastic protective carrying case similar to other tools I have. It also has the option for taking pictures and video on the computer, which I thought was important in case the kids (6 and 8) couldn't pick up looking into the eye piece real easy. They did though, with no problem and so I ended up setting the video capturing up myself. Not the best resolution/clarity with the video part, but better than I expected from the cost aspect. Totally worth the upgrade over the playtoys they have at Toys r us. It looks and feels like one you would have in a lab... only muuuuch less expensive. Good buy.

    I ordered the microscope for my son as birthday gift and he has enjoyed it tremendously since receiving it. I chose this one over others in the similar price range because of the extra digital eyepiece. I can easily connect it to a computer and have the displayed on a big screen. Which is Cool! This feature is especially good for a group of people to view together! Incredible, isn't it? The manual was ok for me but could be better written for children to understand the different aspects that could be done with it.

    I purchased this microscope for my 12 year old grandson for Christmas. It is very well made (not plastic) and had everything he needed to get started. It is a great microscope for a beginner.

    • I purchased it for my 12 year old son and he is very happy with it. He also has experience with more advanced microscopes and he really likes this one. It is durable and professional enough to last for years.

    • For the price, this thing is great. It's not a toy like many others. I believe its made from cast aluminum and looks and feels like a lab microscope. It will last as long as you don't drop it all over the place. I'm impressed with the quality for the price.

    • Our 11 year old daughter loves science too and is really enjoying this microscope (and her parents have had fun with it too). We have looked at her tooth that fell out, jewelry, paper towels, a tiny lightbulb to see if it was burned out, and more. It has a bright adjustable lower light and a pen light for opaque items. The knobs are easy to use to focus the microscope and it has a usb connector to take pictures on your computer. This is a nice microscope, walmart has the best price and it's not toy-ish like many marketed to young people.
