I bought this to replace an inexpensive one I bought for my grandchildren, to build an enthusiam for science. This scope is fully capable for college level work and will serve us for many years. Since the lens cannot touch the platform, I do not have to worry about the chldren breakng the lens. Thanks for offering great products at competitive prices!
While clearly a mid to low range quality scope, it did return acceptable images and who can complain about the price?. My only complaint would be the narrow depth of field, but even this is not reallly all that bad. I clearly wont be returning it and will keep it for the use I bought it for. I also would have paid for a decent storage box (it comes in styrofoam/cardboard boxing). ***
Excellent quality of manufacture that offers and performs exactly as described, Worth noting for international customers is that the power supply for the inbuilt top and bottom illumination is a switching power supply that covers all from 120 to 240 volts. Also a nice touch was the inclusion of spare lamps to both illuminators. Internation dispatch was well packed and arrived with no damage, intial dispatch took a little longer than I expecected, but still acceptable ... but left me wondering for a week what was happening. Overall excellent
I am wondering whether I might of received a unit that had been previously used by someone. I'm not sure, but while the unit itself is sturdy and robust, mine was delivered with a missing lower halogen bulb! CS promtly sent me another bulb, and when I went to install it, I found the "original" bulb wedged into the space beneath the microscope. Other than that, I am satisfied. Customer Service was great.
