    These are great! Was really impressed with the clarity of focus, a bit worried about using them on something that’s not stable, as in a shaky tree branch, but if subject is stable it’ll be excellent! Also you can’t focus or see anything without the light on, which is easy enough but products didn’t come with batteries and the button to turn light on can easily be bumped by accident! So just be vigilant! Otherwise I’m happy!

    Every so often there comes an item that is an unbelievable combination of price and quality. Mora knives ($13), cree flashlights ($3) are good examples of this, assuming that sellers don’t just start over charging for them. Adding to that list is this microscope. For what it is, I can’t imagine how it could be improved. Amazing magnification, clear image and compact size for under $10 if you get 4 of them. Before I ordered these, I knew other people would like them for themselves or their kids, so I got the set and sold 3 of them to other people for $10 each. Since then, I have ordered another set and may have to get third. That is the thing with stuff like this microscope and the Mora and cree – once you show them to other people, they want one too and for some reason they can’t go to Amazon themselves, so you end up buying it again.

    My kids and I enjoyed our test run with these microscopes. We found it hard to focus when zoomed in, but loved checking out things from our nature tray (leaf, feather, rocks, seashells, etc). A whole new world was opened up at a very affordable price.

    It doesn’t come with the lanyard so we will need to find some before hitting the trail. I love that they don’t have to share these like we share our binoculars. Will have to order some slides to see how well they work. If that’s a success, we plan to order a set for Grandma’s classroom. I bet her students would enjoy them, too.

    This works amazing for checking your tricomes on cannabis plants – just be patient, it’s a very small aperture on it so it does take a little work to get it into position.

    couple helpful tips:
    Turn your fans off – stop all air movement while you check your plants, makes it so much easier to make the small adjustments you need to see clearly if you plant isn’t dancing under the thing.

    Don’t get frustrated or think you are doing something wrong – it’ll take you probably 10 minutes the first time you try to use this to find what you are looking for, it gets a lot easier really fast as you get used to using these. They are a great value and you get 4 of them, so when you throw one in a fit of rage ’cause you can’t get it to focus – you have a replacement already….not that I would personally do this…I did it twice 🙂

    At 4 for $36, these are the best value we’ve found and still incredibly good! My kids LOVE looking at everything through these – carpet, hair, printed paper, cardboard, leaves, their skin, etc. Truly a great value, and super nice to drop in my pocket when we go for a nature hike and want to look at moss up close. It’s sometimes hard to hold it still enough when you’re actually out in nature, just because things are SO magnified, that moving even a few mm results in the object no longer being in focus. But that’s not a problem with the magnifiers so much as my own ability to hold still! When we really want to see it without it shifting, we just put it on the table and put the magnifier on top of the table and problem solved.

    We bought a four pack of these thinking they’d be fun toys for the grandchildren and were very surprised at just how good they were. Smaller than I’d envisaged at approx 3x2x1 inches, so small enough to pop into a pocket. Very well made, easy to use and they work really well. Grandchildren are captivated by seeing a whole new world through the lens. The magnification is as stated, no more, no less, but easily good enough to see individual cells, the structure of hair and tiny “monsters”. Very pleased, would highly recommend this product both for its educational and fun use.

    Depends on use, and personal tastes to optic quality, i suppose. Overpriced for what it gives. There is a $3/ 60 power pocket scope of which i love, and have bought for many family members. Had expected this higher priced item to exceed in all respects. Sadly, it met none of the qualities of the less expensive unit. Mine was returned as to being unsatisfactory.

    Adults, teens, and tweens alike spend hours looking at items through this microscope. Really helpful that it lights the specimen and can zoom in/out for focus. As an added bonus align a camera into the eyepiece and play “guess this material”. Bought this set of four since two would cost just as much individually. Bought as gifts but doling them out one at a time. Family members are “whining” that THEY want one too…little do they know 😉 Bought the hard-shell case to go with it, makes it super easy to transport. Would by again!

    Bought for the kids & husband – They love them better than expected great magnification and so convenient and can be stuffed into the pocket when out for walks/hikes (insects, plants, rocks and just about anything else is now being explored). Great gift for kids, teenagers and adults. Well worth the money without breaking the bank.

    I ordered these microscopes to have on hand for gifts. They are great for pre-teens to teens. The zoom adjusts easily and will stay where you put it. They are interesting to use for anything you want to see up close. We have looked at insects, fabric, hair, printing, etc. Look at the difference between what comes out of an ink jet printer and a laser printer. We also use one when someone gets a splinter…sometimes it helps to see which direction it went in, so you can get it out.
