A good product, easy to setup and easy to use software and PC interface.
The Siedentopf head is a unique feature.
In magnification, 2500X is more than what other competitors have to offer. It offers much more than what the price indicates! The lenses give a sharp picture; the mechanical stage operates smoothly. For the price, it is an excellent purchase and makes an excellent microscope for students and kids.
Directions for getting it operational are not very clear. The camera is also not that good.
A case could have been provided for eyepieces not in use to prevent them from getting dusty.
One user had difficulty with the AmScope not able to resolve the delicate structures like white blood cells with the camera making things worse.
