This product is great for Fingerprinting Merit Badge!!!!

This Edu Science M1280X Ultra Student Microscope is really great to use to complete the requirements of Fingerprinting Merit Badge, Insect Study Merit Badge, Nature Merit Badge, Textiles Merit Badge and Plant Science...Read complete review

This Edu Science M1280X Ultra Student Microscope is really great to use to complete the requirements of Fingerprinting Merit Badge, Insect Study Merit Badge, Nature Merit Badge, Textiles Merit Badge and Plant Science Merit Badge while attending Ockanickon Boy Scout Camp located in Pipersville, Pennsylvania with my troop this week of July of 2016. This product is really great. This product has magnification power of fingerprints from 80 times to 1,280 times and the fingerprint patterns can by studied and identified. This product has both top and bottom lights and has a feature where the viewing of samples through the microscope may be transmitted and saved on a person's smart phone or other computerized storage capability from this microscope. Photographs of bacteria and amoebas that live in the water of the lake can be viewed using this microscope. One viewing objective may be used with microscope objective oil that helps with the ability to view samples that are placed for viewing by a person who is looking through the lens of the microscope. This is a really great microscope that is portable and may be hiked in while backpacking to our campsite. This microscope may be used for quite a few merit badges as well as for completing school work during the school year. This is a really great merit badge.

I bought this because I wanted to get my kids a stereo microscope. I figured that at this price it was worth the risk (thankfully I can return it).

As soon as I opened it, I knew I should return it, but decided to at least look through it anyway. (I wanted to try it out before giving it to my kids to make sure it worked, I did not want them to be disappointed.)

First - False Advertising. The box says 'course and fine focus knob', this is essential for high magnification. I guess it is not really false advertising, because both adjustments are on the same knob (note, they did not state 'knobs'). Turn a lot for course, turn a little for fine.

Second - The top illuminator was not even aimed to the scope stage. This is easy to fix by simply unscrewing the bezel, and gently moving the white LED. The top illuminator is pretty dim - they could have put a brighter LED in there.

Third - At the highest magnification, I cannot get any light throughput. Makes it kind of useless if you cannot see anything.

Bottom line is that I will be returning this, and hopefully finding something else. I was hoping to get my kids something that was usable, but was disappointed (and one present short).

Wish there was a way of leaving Zero stars - 1 star makes it seem that it gets a 20% satisfaction rating, where it is really a big zero.

      The "Edu Science M1280X Ultra Student Microscope", is one of the worst product designs we've seen. Purchased for my son for his 2017 Easter gift, and was shocked how cheap the microscope and all it's attachments are.

      Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science M1280X Ultra Student Microscope:

      My son bought this with his birthday money today and we cannot get it to focus on anything beyond the lowest magnification. Reading the reviews I aee we are not alone.Very disappointing--this will be going back and we will be buying elsewhere.

      Very poor optics for the money

      By John

      from Kilgore, tx

      Comments about Toys R Us 1001325 Edu Science M1280X Ultra Student Microscope:

      Very disappointed with this 1280x. Shame on edu products and Toys"R"Us for the high retail on such a poor product. Very poor optics for the retail value. At the lowest magnification 40x it is ok at best, at higher magnification it is horrible and not visible. The 1280x is a lie and you only get 640x out of this microscope. Just because you add two eye pieces it doesn't double the power. My children are disappointed as well.

            My son who is 8 is interested in science and was asking from Santa for a microscope. I did not want to buy a toy one but a better quality and after a long research realized this was the best item out there from several other stores. He loved it on Christmas day and it is a great quality. The best deal is that I got it on sale too.... great for any science enthusiastic kids.

                This microscope seems great as long as you don't mind staying at the lowest magnification. Things are pretty easy to find and the clarification was good. When we tried to increase however, we had no luck. I do know how to use microscopes so I'm pretty confident this is not user error.
