I was actually surprised at the quality of this little microscope. Yes, most of it is plastic, but it's a nice, sturdy plastic and the parts that really matter, like the objectives, eyepiece tube, and lenses are metal and glass. It magnifies X40, X100, and X1000. I think one of my favorite features on this microscope is the LED lights sub-stage and overhead that allows you to view both slides and solid objects, such as plants, coins, and insects. It's also battery-powered so it allows for portable use "in the field."
It comes with 5 blank slides, cover slides & slide labels for those, 4 prepared slides (ours came with paramecium, salt crystal, mouth smear, and pollen...those are really cool, the pollen was our favorite), 1 double well slide (for liquids, like pond water) all slides are glass, except for the double well slide, and come with 2 plastic carrying cases they all fit in. Also included are a plastic dropper, 2 bottles non-toxic "stain" (red & blue, they're actually just food coloring), forceps, lens paper, test tube (small, glass), Petri dish (small,plastic) and a user's manual. It also comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
The user's manual has lots of pictures and explains what each piece is and how to use it. It also has lots of good ideas for observation like onion cell-mitosis, observing mold growth, insect observation, shaking grains of pollen on a slide, comparing hairs from various animals, observing different fibers, how to stain specimens, and more.
My only real complaint about this microscope is there are some small spots that are always there when you look through the eyepiece (they can be seen on our pictures as small grey spots). I have cleaned all the outside lenses numerous times, so I know there must be either dust on the inside or just cheap glass lenses. It is only slightly annoying and we eventually got used to them.
For those of you interested in this for a child, we have found the book Greg's Microscope by Millicent E. Selsam to be helpful in sparking young children's interest in exploring our world through a microscope. It's an old book no longer in print, but you can find it on eBay.
All in all, this little microscope would be great for a child, beginner, or even just an "in the field" tool. Easy to use and lots of fun!
I figure that looking at prepared slides will take just a few minutes, so the more the better.
Make sure you if are buying slides, that you look closely and read exactly what you are getting. Honestly, the kits with just 48 prepared slides were a better value, as they were actually one 48 slides!
These slides are just a cheap imitation of something that could have been great.
