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.

            Worst ever - my daughter who loves Science and loves playing around with the gadgets in the set - but she was so excited on using the Microscope we have tried and tried to get it working and all we can see is our eyelashes , floaties in our eyes and dust I am so poorly disappointed and have been denied on returning it countless times... now I am stuck with a dud product and will never buy this make of anything ever again for shame Edu Science and Toys R Us for not standing behind your products and trying to keep a customer.

                  The stage(focus) adjustment is horrible! The focus slips if you let go of the knob. Say you want to help your kid look at something or he wants to share what he's looking at with you. It's impossible to set the focus and then let the other person look through because the focus is lost immediately. My son was immediately disappointed. The only thing that could be seen clearly was the massive amount of dust on the optics.
