    Makes a Good Gift

    By AdirondkPk

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Made By Meade
    • Price

    Cons

    • Contaings Sharp Objects
    • Made In China
    • Supervision Needed

    Best Uses

    • Gift - Not Opened Yet
    • Good Starter Set

    Comments about Meade 900x Microscope with 28 Piece Kit:

    I was very impressed when I received the microscope set. When I read about the appropriate ages, I realized that my granddaughter is too young. I am going to take out the scalpel, tweezers, etc. that might harm her but she will be using it with adult supervision anyway.
    Meade is a good brand, but I read "made in China" on the case. I'm trying my best not to buy items that are made there, but it's very difficult - they're everywhere!!
    Anyway, the set is a Christmas gift, so it hasn't been opened - one side of the case is clear. It looks like a great starter set, to be used under adult supervision. Plus, the B & H price was better than ANYWHERE on the net. I checked everywhere. The shipping was not cheap but it was very quick.

    Pros

    • Can Work As A Microscope
    • Low price

    Cons

    • Is A Toy
    • Poor Image Quality

    Best Uses

      Comments about Meade 900x Microscope with 28 Piece Kit:

      Okay, first you need to think it is a toy with kind of microscopy function. It could offer magnified images but the quality is not good. Don't expect you could see very detailed, clear images. Second, as a toy it worth the price because it indeed magnified the stuff you could not see with your naked eye. As to 900X magnification, I don't think you could manage to do that because first, the light would be too weak for you to see it; second it is a real challenge for you to get the proper focus on the object. 450x works.
      The poor image quality prevent me to recommand this product.

            I ordered this for my 9 year old son for Christmas. He unwrapped it and stopped unwrapping other presents. We took apart the entire kit and looked at everything, and he has several ideas of things he wants to collect to look at. I also purchased to book that gives us several ideas and explanations that he is very excited about as well.

                The Microscope was a birthday gift for our 9 year old granddaughter. We wanted a starter kit that would intrigue and delight a promising scholar. And, it did! When her 3rd grade teacher asked about her birthday all Ellie could talk about was the microscope kit. We were very impressed with the ease of ordering, the speedy delivery and the great value B & H offered.
