Meade 900x Microscope

This is not a product I would recommend for anyone who is actually interested in seeing things clearly through a low-power microscope. I had low expectations for this kit when I ordered it due to the price. Even then, I am still disappointed with the quality of this kit. I was most dissatisfied with quality of lenses that are in this microscope. The image looking through it was very poor with deformities in the lenses and dust on the lenses for all 3 magnifications. They can not be cleaned since the dust was on the inside of the lens housing (which is made from plastic) and would require disassembling the microscope to access them.. The lenses themselves are also made from plastic. This kit comes with a replacement light bulb for the microscope, which was a good thing in my case, as the installed light bulb quit working after about 3 minutes of continuous use. The kit it's self contains a variety of things like plastic slides, a dull and flimsy scalpel, some brine shrimp eggs, and other assorted items that may be of interest/use to some people. In short, this is a TOY that appears to be a semi-decent-quality microscope and should be purchased with that in mind.

Educational and Fun Product

I ordered this Microscope for my Grandfather, and he loves it!! He was thrilled with everything it came with. Almost every night he uses it to look at something, sometimes bugs, leaves, or a piece of my Grandma's hair he plucked out!!! I would say if you have a child or an adult who wants to see how things look up close, this is the product for you.

Not so good

My husband and I purchased this as a Christmas present for our 6-year old daughter. I was surprised when I removed it from the case how poorly made it was. Granted, it is for my 6-year old but I believe I can find something a bit heartier for the price. I did purchase the 20-pc. slide kit in conjunction with which I plan to keep so my thought now is to simply purchase a microscope without all the accessories as the extras don't seem necessary.

Meade Microscope

I feel that for the price, the microscope should be made with a little more durable materials. It should withstand minor adjustments of lenses without stripping out the lense adjustment knobs. This microscope was bought for a very bright 8 year old that uses microscopes and telescopes almost daily. It isn't as though she doesn't know how to adjust a lense by turning a simple plastic knob. I suggest that anyone considering the purchase of the Meade 900x Microscope kit, spend a little more money and purchase a microscope that your child can enjoy for more than a few minutes.

Bukb not functional out of the box

As soon as I took the Microscope out of the box I had plugged it in. Come to find out that the bulb was faulty which made my 6 year old son cry because he was so excited about getting a microscope for Christmas.
