Better than I've expected – Mini LED 80X Microscope with Scale Markings Reviews

posted by ehabkost on 01/04/2009 Certified Owner

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.
Other:
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.
