Pretty good for the price

  • Summary: Monoculars come in all ranges and qualities. This one is inexpensive, but the quality is not bad. Relatively bright and clear images at its magnification. Focus is a little stiff, but has the advantage that it doesn't slip once set.

Good to carry around on a daily basis

  • Summary: I like this because it's small & lightweight- I put it over my neck every day before I walk my dogs. It's so small & lightweight I barely notice, yet it's strong enough I can distinguish hawks from crows & read roadsigns at much greater distance. Only used the close focus once but worked well.

Poor glass

  • Summary: I never had any optics that I could say glass made a difference before. I have Bushnells and I can't tell the difference between them and a friends Swarski's. But these, I can honestly say are hurt by the poor glass.

Exactly as advertised

  • Summary: I bought this so I could read the displays on my audio-video system. When seated far enough away to enjoy it properly I can't read most of the displays, especially my radio. The close-up monocular was just what I needed.
