Don't buy this product. The price of the Meade 8200 seemed good on the internet, but when we received it we felt that we should not have paid over $10 for it. The eyepiece barrel had some dirt in it to where you could not see clearly at the highest lense. Thinking it was just a product defect, we exchanged it for another one. Same problem-- though not as bad. I don't expect the world for that price, but I do expect it to work with the lenses that it has. Do yourself a favor and spend a bit extra for one that has better optics and is not made of cheap plastic. This one will be gathering dust on your shelf in no time.

I would not recommend this product to anyone. I thougth that because it was made by Meade it would be a great product but instead it was very cheaply made and not worth the money. It was even broken when it arrived. In fact, I found the same product at Walmart for $20.00 less.

Unfortunately I really can't review this very well, but will follow up. The initial delivery was prompt, but the scope's focusing mechanism was broken. The light source also did not work. Getting an RMA was quick and easy, but beware, you have to pay the postage to return the defective product. What was an inexpensive microscope for a child is quickly becoming more expensive once you add an additional $18.00 to UPS ship the part back. I can understand if I wanted to return the unit and it was fully functional, but since it was defective, I don't believe I should have to pay the postage. I should have just asked for my money back, but because it was a Christmas gift and there was time for them to re-ship, I asked for a replacement. Here it is Dec 27 and still no microscope! If I get another defective part, I'll be out almost the price of the scope in return charges and have nothing to show for it.

I bought this for my little third grader because he is interested in science. The package comes with some wonderful features and is a real great value! We have had no problems whatsoever. There's nothing more important than the education of your child. I'm also considering picking another one up as a Christmas gift for my nephew.

I couldn't agree more! I bought this microscope starter kit for my son for his birthday, and he hasn't stopped "playing" with it since he got it! He loves looking at all kinds of different stuff, and the microscope is easy enough for a small child to use (once given instruction), but it's also sophisticated enough that adults can have a good time "researching," too! There is certainly nothing juvenile about the image and magnification quality of this microscope! Who knows-- maybe my son has found his calling in the laboratory!!

My students use these microscope sets during their biology unit in class. They absolutely love them, they're simple, easy to use, and have a very clear magnification. The test averages have been much higher ever since we started teaching with these microscope sets. They actually make kids want to learn!

I got this microscope for my daughter for her birthday. Ever since they learned about cells in school she has asked me to buy her a microscope so she could do "research" as she calls it. She has been looking at cells of different leaves, human tissue, and anything else she finds around the house. I'm just a happy mom who loves to see her daughter spend so much time on something besides tv and video games.
