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.
