anyone get a microscope that is not $$$ but still works well?

suggestions please


daughter, 7, got this one.
the cylinder does not stay put- hence it will not keep focus. 

will be returning - hopefully

thanks

hoping at least some members will have had some bad experiences also, so i can cross those off any list to replace. the reviews on the site are nice, but some are very 50/50

We got DS a microscope, but it's a bit pricey. It's totally awesome though.

This is what he got. It kicks ass:

He's considerably older though (11), and we homeschool, so we'll be using it for that as well.

yup, that is nice, but too much for my blood

40 for one that does not work, and i have a 50$ gift card from amazon

so maybe 100, or else get lucky and find one on ebay no one is bidding on, goodwill - which could take a while, rummage- but it is Winter here

she really wanted this, her big wish, and now biggest disappointment
but she is doing other stuff so not complaining
i guess am more bummed, as she got a lot of science stuff- her thing lately

Maybe check that site and see if they have something more affordable.

That looks as good as some of the ones we have in our lab lol. My boss got one for $200 that has a sucky 40x and 100x. So we couldn't use it for either urines or blood.

It really is nice. It arrived several weeks ago but I didn't want to take it out of the box so I was as surprised as DS when I actually saw the real thing. I am quite impressed.
