Ok im looking to buy one but not them high price ones just one from $20 to$40 or so.

I found a few but i dont know what one is good enough for me. I dont know if 100x is better than 50x or if 900x is better than 600x i just dont understand that part.

Any way here are a few i found that im going to think about getting one, can some one let me know if any of these are ok?

Really depends on what you are interested in doing with it... for biological samples (my bias) 5-20x is all the more you need.

Beware of scopes that advertise large magnification. So many other things are more important---eye relief, for example.

See if you can get one of those USB-enabled scopes with a camera built in. They look like toys but are actually pretty good.
