    Pros:
    It is a very cheap microscope, in my country it costs $ 30. It is also small and easy to walk around with. The quality is better than what I had expected for the price. It is easy to use. If I lose mine, I will definitely buy one more.
    Cons:
    Carrying pouch is useless, and poor quality. And had problems with the LED light, you could not turn off sometimes.
