a silver painted finish that looks high quality, nothing at all toylike or cheap. It has two lamps, both operated from the lower pedestal. It takes 4 AA batteries to power the lamps. There is a 4X, 10X and 40X objective lens on the nosepiece. The optic range is from 40x to 640x.The eyepiece tube uses the included 10X and 16X eyepieces, which came in their own packages in the box.The box also contains a slide box with eight prepared slides and 4 empty ones as well as specimen handling tools.
Everything on the instrument works well. The filter wheel, adjustment slides and turn knobs all have a quality feel to it. The eyepiece rotates 360 degrees, a welcome touch for a microscope in this price range. The instructions in the box are straightforward and are translated in several languages. This is a excellent instrument for a hobbyist, a high school or in the case of my son, a undergraduate college student. With two lighting elements on the scope, it should not only handle standard biological fare but forensic science specimens as well. It is a good first microscope for any child interested in science, the build quality could carry them through college years.
I am very happy with this microscope. It has a excellent combination of build quality, features, and value.
The bad....had to return 2 microscopes due to quality control problems. First microscope had a staging area that was
askew....not parallel to base, but at a 35 degree angle to the base. Also, fitting the batteries in the battery compartment
was ridiculously tight...had to use a small screwdriver on the battery ends to wedge them in. And...after all that work,
the lights would not come on. So...return microscope #1 & requested a replacement. Microscope #2 arrived with hopes
of a better experience. The battery compartment was much better...batteries fit snug but not to tight. And...the lights came
on. Yeah!!! Whoops...the bottom light cover looked cracked..but it was just scratched & was able to buff it out. Well..lets
try out the microscope itself. Took one of the supplied slides (bamboo) & tried out the different views...first the 4X...looking good...now the 10X.....wait...there is some sort of contaminate in the view. I tried to locate (lenses, slide,etc) in order to wipe clean, but no luck. The 4X was always clean with no problems. The 10x always had the contaminate. So...it was embedded within the 10X lense or inside it beyond reach-to-clean. So...return microscope #2. I don't mind contacting the manufacturer
for simple issues (i.e. missing part), but when a product lacks quality control before leaving the factory, I'm not going to keep it. So...now I'll look elsewhere for my microscope. Thanks to Amazon for an excellent return policy.
1- Its led lights are operated with batteries, which makes it very portable.
2- It has top and bottom lights.
3- Good range of magnifications.
4- With a digital camera eyepiece, it turns into a digital microscope.
5- It comes with accessories.
Not so good things are:
1- The worst thing is that its optics are not as good as I expected. But I guess, for the price this is what you get. At low magnifications, it is okay, but at high magnifications, it is difficult to get a clear image. At the 40x objective lens, some kind of optical noise decrease the clarity of the image.
2- The lenses cannot focus all the colors at high magnifications.
3- It doesn't have a fine adjusment knob.
Bottomline: Think of this microscope as a somewhat advanced toy for kids and it is good for that purpose. If you are a hobbyst or a more advanced user, I would look for better alternatives.

This is really easy to use, my only problem is that it doesn't have a fine focus knob and sometimes you have to hold the coarse knob because it shifts. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
