When I first opened the package, I had a hard time inserting the battery. The wire spring was crooked.I managed to insert the battery with a nail file clipper.As long as that light works well, we are happy with the microscope.

It's ok. Hard to adjust settings. It doesn't work well with all experiments but some.

This is a really great microscope! I was pleasently surprised that this actually is metal on it. I thought for the price that a piece of plastic might show up, but it's been doing the job quite well. Obviously if you have older kids that are doing a lot of biology work then you'll want a sharper, more high end model, but for everyday use of random things that you may be looking at or learning about this is perfect! I would buy it again and recommend to others!

I think this is a very good product especially for homeschool use. We could use more of this kind of hands on stuff for kids to learn from.
