Gen 2+ Performance

  • Summary: The Pulsar Recon X550 (#78026) is certainly WORTH the money. If your goal is to see in the dark with very good to excellent resolution, you want this unit. Its light gathering ability is quite good, but understand this is still not a 3K dollar Gen 3 device. You'll still need to occasionally use either its built in IR light (Max 75-100 yard range), or even better would be to purchase a high performance IR light & mount it to the accessory rail.
  • Pros: Easy to use & very good resolution.
  • Cons: No on-screen menu for things like: Battery %, "Sum Light", or IR Light.

night work

  • Summary: I now have two of the Pulsar n550 that should say it all but I I also tried the yukon but once you used the pulsar the yukon may cost a hundred dollars less but it is a toy by comparison to a Pulsar n550 and the Pulsar is a true true tool of the night.

Pulsar digital recon X550

Brian, opticsplanet.com

  • Summary: Has at least 7 bright pixels. Maybe more. Paperwork says up to seven is normal. That is bogus. Leads me to believe they are buying "second" quality CCDs to build these devices. My high end digital cameras have no "blown" pixels. Overall it is still a great device and I would buy it again, but this really bothers me.
  • Pros: Small, lightweight, overall works really well
  • Cons: Has at least 7 bright pixels. Probably more.
