Summary: My wife bought me this for Christmas at my request. I finally got to Colorado to try it out at night and it is virtually worthless. Maybe this one is defective, but focusing on anything more than about 10 feet away is impossible. And what you can see is not that much better than with the naked eye.
Summary: Ordered 3 NV devices; this plus Bushnell 2X24 and Stealthview II 3x42. Kept Bushnell 2x24. Neither digital had usable starlight capability, requiring constant illuminator use. Hard on illuminators and batteries. 5X FOV too small to use for surveillance.
Pros: excellent long range illuminator, long range makes 5X usable
Cons: 5X=small field of view, no starlight capability, low power illuminator visible and died 2nd use
Summary: This unit is outstanding for the price range. Right out of the box, it's easy to set up and use. The 2 focus adjusters are very easy to configure. ADJUST THE EYE PIECE FIRST until you have a full view (it will still be blurry, but don't worry, that's what the other adjuster will fix).
Summary: My wife purchased this as a gift that I picked out. Part of the view screen worked just as advertised - another 1/3 to 1/2 was totally grayed out and unusable. I tried to contact Yukon support and couldn't reach them ("leave a message").
Summary: Had this brand new unit 3 days now, what a waste of 315.0. Field of view very narrow,picture very grainy, both focus wheels too loose and are constantly adjusting themselves when walking or handling, very difficult to hold steady eyepiece too small, a very fiddly, annoying, piece of kit, and a poor...
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Focus adjustments too loose / grainy picture / eyepiece too small
Summary: Should provide full flippable len covers. Do not forget to open the front len covers before using! Use rechargable batteries.
Pros: Compact, lightweight and easy to use. Clear gen 2 digital resolution with stealth IR illuminators, one with very strong illumination. Provide 2 empty battery packs for long usage. See black and white night almost like day.
Summary: wasnt sure which unit to get. customer service was great and gave me good idea of which way to go. This is my first night vision and glad I went with digital. works great in complete darkness. the 5x mag is just right.
