- Thursday, March 15, 2007 Microscope Slide set
I bought this microscope slide set as a gift for my son's birthday. The quality in each slide is excellent and there are no scratches on the glass. The set came in a hard plastic case which is a well designed quality case and easy to open. Also make a good fit for the slides to be stored.
I definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for good quality and excellent price in a microscope slide set.
- Tuesday, September 05, 2006 Another marvelous slide set!
Combining this with the biology slide set has given us a marvelous basic slide collection.
I do wish there were an intro slide set with some of the most commonly used intro slides (the letter 'e', threads, etc) as I had to purchase those elsewhere, but other than that, I could not be more pleased with the fabulous selection and quality HST offers!
