I purchased the item because of Bushnell's reputation and the description of the item. Upon on my preliminary test, I noticed that the images were blurry to the point of not even recognizable (low light and with IR assist). Rather than to assume it was defective, I contacted Bushnell (very receptive and helpful technical support) and they recommend that I return the item. I was almost tempted to get a refund and look at another model or brand but I'm willing to give the product one more try.
Aside from the image issues, the product does seem to be well constructed. I hope to update the review with some better news once I get the replacement.

**Replacement update** 10/25/2011
The replacement item was received from Amazon as part of a seamless exchange. The product has thus far exceeded my expectations. What you do have to be careful with is the focus adjustment on the front lens. The part of the lens that is supposed to focus is tightly screwed in from the factory which predisposes you to back off the other two sets of threads that hold on to the front assembly. Once you get the focus sorted, the image quality is spot on. From a distance of 15 yards I could make out the grain pattern of the wood swing set.
For the price, it does the job.

The Good:
Working with several devices including the outstanding Yukon NVMT scopes and coveted iGen from Night Owl, I must say the Bushnell 2 x 28mm Equinox boasts a slight, but noticable edge on clarity compared to any of the Gen 1 devices I have used. The unit also produces above average brightness (for Gen 1) and productes a sharper image than many other offerings and is ruggedly built to boot. The optics are excellent as the coating on the lenses minimizes distracting flare and contribute to excellent clarity, contrast and sharpness taking Gen 1 technology a bit further than Bushnell's previous models. Based on the rugged build quality and IPX4 level waterproofing, selection of tube (minimal black spots) and appealing optically clear image quality - I would highly recommend this particular model to be at or near the top of your list.

The Gripes:
I personally have minimal gripes about the Equinox 2 x 28, but nevertheless no review would be honest without mentioning these. I find the objective lens cap (front lens) to be far deeper than necessary, hence you have to wrestle a bit to pull it off the front of the scope which is not only a bit of a hassle, but could potentially put a strain on the lens connection to the body. Thankfully, this can be avoided by simply placing the cap 1/3 of the way down when replacing it after use, thus making it much easier to remove. Secondly (and this is really minor), the ocular lens (eyepiece) moves easily during mere handling of the scope so it may need to be readjusted often upon use.

Can't say enough about this monoc! It totally meets my expectations. I tried Yukon Sea Wolf and the clarity was terrible. This monoc is clear as a bell. You do need an external illuminator though. I recommend the streamlight TL-2IR. It increases viewing distance triple fold. A great combo if you get the picatinny rail mount for the light! Awesome! It has a great feel in the hand and seems quite rugged!

Works Nice, Turns on right away, Does take a couple minutes to turn off. Looks like a normal thing for gen 1 screens. Use the turn off period as a battery saver. Everything still works during cool down except the IR (infa Red). Its Light Weight, Has a Good Detail Bright Screen & IR . The red in front of IR lense is the same as all other brands. Has Easy Adjustments, Green screen only on this model#260228. But you can adjust IR to make a highlighted dot detail in the center of the screen. Better Than I thought it would be for being one of the cheapest on the market.

This is a great monocular, better picture quality then any GEN 1 I have ever use. Compares to some entry level GEN 2! Easy 3 button control is straight forward. I was expecting a low quality picture but in pleasantly surprised!

The illumination on the monocular works fine for my purpose and the magnification is good for medium range viewing. I would recommend this any one looking for night vision on a budget without sacrificing quality!

Wish it had a tripod mount tho..

Kinda expensive but does a pretty good job, especially if you have an IR illuminator.
Very operator friendly. The built in IR illuminator is very good compared to most other
monocular IR that is built in......

Amazon delivery was on time and item as ordered.. I was very excited to try my first night vision purchase. After installing the batteries and turning the unit on. I could not see anything. Went back and reviewed the manual once more. The manual is simple and easy to understand. I found myself making all sorts of adjustments. The objective, the IR, the brightness mode. Finally got it to work somewhat. but each time you turn it on and off it defaults to presets. Don't expect to just turn it on and view anything quickly. Chances are whatever your trying to capture will be gone before you make all the necessary adjustments. But that's my first impression.
