What "quality" are they talking about?,
This review is from: Educational Insights EI5301 Micropro Microscope Set, 48 Piece (Toy)
I purchased this scope from a local school store as a gift. Within minutes my nephews were asking for my help focusing. I thought the excessive scratches on the lenses and slides were to blame, only to discover the eyepiece/lenses didn't even line up with the hole through which the light is coming through in the platform! What a waste of money. I'm disappointed that quality-control for a company would allow this product to be sold, nevermind made! (The difference between the models manufactured by this company vary only in the even cheaper painted-plastic "accessories" that actually, laughably, are labeled with "Warning: sharp object" labels!) I'll be calling the company first thing in the morning for a refund so I can purchase something that the boys can actually use!

"I purchased this scope from a local school store" You didn't purchase it from Amazon so why the write up. Anyone should know that a microscope doesn't have scratches on the lenses sound like you got a second hand product. Someone probably returned it in that condition..Get in touch with the manufacturer or get the "school store" to replace it.
