Summary: Folks DONT buy these binoculars without checking a pair out for yourself...I know theres people on here giving reviews that say the image quaility is good...Those folks have NEVER seen good image quaility...trust me..Now I'm sure there are some of you that would be happy with these ...But if image quaility is important to you DONT buy without going somewhere where you can check these out firsthand...Yes they are cheap...theses a very good reason for that..
Summary: These are some GREAT binoculars for the price, as a matter of fact they are better than some $100.00+ glasses I have used. Big enough for serious magnification,yet not too big to carry around.The 10-30 zoom actually works!
Summary: Using them for spotting on targets. Work very well but I should have got the tripod/bipod as well. They are so powerful that it is had to hold steady but that is not the fault of the Binocular, only the holder! Very happy with purchase.
Summary: I was not familiar with this brand, but after purchasing them for a friend I found them to be seemingly well made. I was also not familiar with the 10-30 power magnification feature, but the lever control slides smoothly and seems to work as it should. My friend asked for this style (10-30X) specifically and I must say that I would not buy them for myself. Focus is good up to about 25 power and then it begins to get fuzzy, not clear enough for my liking.
Summary: I was hoping for a better product. All the features sound great. If you only use it on lowest power it is ok. As you increase the magnification the detail gets worse and worse no matter how much you adjust. I read other reviews which said pretty much the same thing. They were right.
Horrible optical/mechanical quality; Your eyes deserve better !!

Summary: Review of Barska 10-30xZoom X 50 binoculars....I've given these every chance, but I'm sorry, they're horrible optical and mechanical quality...bought them after reading all these reviews, thinking I could trust them, and I even have a pair of Barska Marine 7x50's that are excellent optical quality, but now I'm wondering who's writing these reviews, the Barska marketing department?...
Summary: Well worth the money. Great optics, quality piece from Barska for the money! Bought for the rifle range to spot targets out to 100 yds, optics are clear and focus well. Can see .22 hits on target from 100 yrds clearly.
