Its a really nice microscope. I have an unfair advantage when it comes to microscopes.
I have tried to point out that you can find a lot better optics if you look for a used microscope that is research grade. My home microscope is an "Ernst Leitz Wetzlar" medical microscope from about 1950-1952, I purchased it on Craiglist for $100 from a doctor closing down his office. Unfortunately I had to watch the Chicago craiglist for about a year before I found a really high quality microscope at a low price that didn't appear to be stolen. I actually brought a slide with some yeast on it to check out the scope before I bought it.
There are a few really good names in optical microscopes and you can search ebay or craiglist for Carl Zeiss, Leitz, Leica, Nikon, Olympus. The latter two have made good units for the last 20 years, and the others for the last 50 or 60 years. I would rather take my chances on a 100 year old Carl Zeiss microscope than a no name"student" microscope. The one inexpensive model that seems to be very high quality is "LOMO", a research grade microscope out of Russia that is surprisingly low cost available from optics planet.
