Quality and functionality is OK. The hardest part is

Quality and functionality is OK. The hardest part is positioning the camera so the light reflects without coming straight back into the camera causing white spots in the image.

Great product, my kid loves it

I saw this product at the MIT science fair and had to buy one. I was pleased with the price and product. The microscope works well the pocture quality is great and the magnification is pretty good. I use it with my 9yo daughter and we look at bugs, our skin/hair folicles and household items up close. If you want very high magnification then this may not be for you. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars, other than that the product is great.

Great for the price

Zooms in very well. Its exactly what i'm looking for at this price point. One thing to note is that the higher the resolution goes the worse the framerate gets which is normal for this price point. Just keep that in mind for any future buyers.

Product was delivered on time and exactly as described. I bought it for my 7 year old granddaughter - I can't wait to see if she likes it as much as I do.

Would be nice to have a user manual to optimize. Install is straightforward on Windows 10. Pretty impressive for the price.

Not a toy for kids, but good enough for grownups to enjoy

I purchased this on Prime Day as a fun way to help my toddler explore the world and dive deeper into STEM toys. I had hoped it would be simple enough that she could use it herself - she certainly cannot.However, once I got it properly up and running (more on that in a moment) I found it was good enough that I wanted to keep it so I could help my daughter look at things (especially bugs and rocks), and so I could look at things myself.On to the ""up and running"" bit:You need to go to their website and install the driver on your computer in order to get it up and running. It was easy enough to do, but it's not ready to go out of the box. If you want it to be go to their website ahead of time and download the driver.Once I had the software installed I very quickly and easily put together the parts. And was so disappointed in the image quality that I started processing the return.The reason I still have it (and am giving it 4 stars) is because when I was taking it apart to return I saw that there was a light adjustment wheel. Turning the light all the way up got me the image quality I was expecting. It's very easy to focus (turn the large rubberized piece), but I had missed the tiny black on black wheel that adjusted brightness and thought that the light was simply insufficient to get good imaging.I put it back together, plugged it back in, turned the light all the way up and was very happy with image quality. 4 stars for lack of directions - packaging includes one tiny piece of paper instructing you to download the driver to get it to work with a website.For the price this cannot be beat - very impressive imaging. And while I can't pass this over to my daughter (yet) - it's not so delicate or complex that she can't enjoy it once I've gotten a good image up on the screen.

Excellent microscope for the price

Bought this on Prime Day for my kids, and it's an excellent microscope for the prices. Attached are some examples: the blade stamp on a Swiss Army knife, closeup of a quarter, the circuit board of a Raspberry Pi Zero W.The cons are that the relatively low-resolution sensor is somewhat noisy, and precise focus is difficult with the included flexible stand. I just ordered a geared metal stand (Jiusion Aluminium Alloy Universal Adjustable Professional Base Stand Holder Desktop Support Bracket for Max 1.4"" in Diameter USB Digital Microscope Endoscope Magnifier Loupe Camera (Aluminium Alloy)) that I'll review separately when it arrives.
