Excerpt: This was a Christmas present from my wife. I've only had the opportunity to use them a couple of times and they seemed to work okay. They aren't quite as clear as I'd like but you can get an idea of what's going on around you. We plan to use them for boating.
Pros: Close Focus, Compact, Easy to use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction, Very Portable, Waterproof, Works Well With Glasses
Cons: Better Instruction Book, Heavy, Needs Pocket On Case
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).
Excerpt: Worked right out of the box... I had the AA batteries ready to drop in. Has lots of included accessories and options! You just need to buy batteries. You can also plug it into the lighter/cargo plug in the car or use an a/c outlet in the house, as well.
Pros: Didn't need my glasses, Easy to use, Lightweight, Lots of accessories, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
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").
