  • Better than I've expected

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Great price.

    - Very fun to play with.

    - Uses standard size batteries.

    - The LED is very useful. I can even use the microscope in the dark.

    - WIth the scale markings, you can even measure the stuff you are seeing. I don't expect it to be too accurate, however.

    Cons:

    - It looks very easy to break it. I wouldn't expect it to survive too long if I hand it to a kid.

    - The battery compartment is very tight and doesn't have springs on the contact points. It is very hard to remove one of the batteries from inside it. When I changed to a different brand of battery, I had to unbend the battery contact point so it actually touches the back of my new batteries.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    I've bought this item and I've got a 100x one instead of 80x. There were some problems with the supplier for this item on the past, so I would check if it is the right magnification immediately when receiving it.
