This Amscope 40X-1000X Cordless Student Biological Compound Microscope is an excellent basic beginner microscope.
Whether homeschooling your child or tackling science projects sent home from school, this student microscope will help put your child at an advantage as a nice supplement to their studies.
This is a monocular instrument which may be more appropriate for a young child.
The ability to snap viewable images with its digital USB imager and download to a folder or simply choose live feed will add to their enjoyment and is a nice addition included with this purchase.
As in what seems to be true with all AmScope microscopes, the instructions sent with your purchase are minimal at best. Although, there are downloadable manuals available directly from the AmScope website.
Several customers receive their microscope and have difficulty running the software on their Mac as it typically runs on Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 operating systems. However, a solution is to visit http://www.bodelin.com/proscope/software to solve the issues. Any problems are easily dealt with.
The price is perfect even without the digital viewing option so should be seen as an added bonus. The images are crisp up to 40X but any higher and images lose resolution.
It is necessary to purchase slides, cover glasses or even a prepared microscope slide kit with your AmScope student microscope as these are not included.
