I am a researcher and have access to research-grade microscopes. This inexpensive microscope does not replace a research microscope. However, it is a great entry microscope that may be useful, say, for a field trip in a college-level class, like my Invertebrate Zoology or Parasitology classes. I may order a bunch of this scopes for my classes to take to the beach or field.
A few things could be better: as mentioned above, the focus could be better if it were on a twisting dial and the battery could stay on, and with a larger battery (e.g., AA). It would also be useful if it could capture the image (but adding a camera it would increase considerably the cost); alternatively, it would be more useful if it could be attached to a cell phone camera, since cell phones are ubiquitous and take great photos. And a small detail: the scope could have a ring or loop so that it could be wore on a chain or lanyard like a jeweler's loupe (the 60-100x model has it).
As others have suggested, it would be a great gift to a child who may be interested in sciences. And being so inexpensive, it is a low risk investment. This scope is much easier to use and has better image quality that other simple microscopes that I have seen. I highly recommend it.
Slides fit into a slot in the black base. The black base comes off which lets you use it for looking at things on the ground.
If you have a steady hand, you can take a vignetted picture with an iphone (other moble phones too?). It's pretty hard to do this. It's better if one person is holding & focusing the microscope and the other is positioning the phone. See attached examples where I did this.

Only wish would be for the led light to have a permanent on button. As it is cumbersome to keep holding it and changing the settings at the same time. Though, because I like this quite a lot, will keep the 5*.
Daughter finds amazing the amount of things she's seen through it. Well worth it.
