Two light sources allow this microscope to magnify both slides and solid objects! View slides coins plants stamps insects jewelry and more! You would need two instruments to view what this one doesa basic biological scope to look at specimens on a slide (light shines up from under the slide and through the tissue) and a traditional stereo or dissecting microscope to view solid objects at lower power (light shines down onto the specimen to be observed). This new Duo-Scope with dual lighting allows for both types of applications! Cordless battery power makes it portable for field study.

The microscope comes well packed. On removal from the box it feels like it is a good quality item. In use it is every bit as good as expected. The dual LED light source (above and below the stage) is very useful. Solid objects can be observed with ease and the angle of the light gives a slight 3D effect because of shadowing. The light from below can be regulated via an aperture wheel which is a useful feature.
The lenses appear to be well made and all magnifications provide a good image. The lens changing wheel moves smoothly and clicks firmly into place. The magnifications provided are useful. Too high a magnification is very difficult to work with except on a very high quality microscpe. Perhaps I would have liked a 5x eyepiece as well. A lower magnification is often useful for many of the subjects you look at (experience from work).
The accessories provided are good. The prepared slides give an idea of what can be achieved with a little work. The slide with the liquid well is useful for looking at living organisms such as mosquito larvae, something that really gets children interested. The tools are all that are required for preparing specimens.
For what it cost this microscope cannot be faulted. It would be quite at home in a school biology lab. In this model it is clear that the important parts have been given priority in terms of build quality and this shows in the results produced. I am very happy with this purchase and can only hope that it continues my daughter's interest in science and provides education and fun at the same time.
Did not get the 5th star because only a few prepared slides. A bit churlish to quibble really, given the price
When I unwrapped it it felt well made, not heavy or "serious" but decent for the money. I was happy.
In terms of usability it is fantastic! Without using the instructions and within about two minutes we were looking at the pre-prepared slides in the three different magnifications. The boy could focus in an out with very little instruction. The "images" are really clear and bright and really satisfying. We quickly found some new samples to make up our own slides and spent the next two hours looking at red blood cells, fly wings, onion skins and comparing the shapes of all the pollen grains from each of the flowering plants in our house.
We can both thoroughly recommend this. Unless you are expecting a solid metal professional feeling microscope for £50 you will not be disappointed. Best birthday present we have bought him to date.

The lower LED is clearly broken, constantly flickering, so you can't really look at anything. He's just 8 years old this was his most anticipated Christmas present. I'm so bloody angry. Will be contacting Amazon for immediate replacement.
The instructions say that the LED pretty much works forever so there is no capacity for changing it, and that I need to get in contact of it doesn't work.
Not good enough at all.
