The image becomes very streaky, and it seems that the range at which I could see was much worse as well.

As a 'nice to have' toy in my hunting pack, this compact night vision optic will be wonderful to see the critters scurrying around while i wait for th sun to rise.

It is so useless without the IR light source that you can actually see in low light much better without the device.

I purchased this nvm from Cabela's a few weeks ago as one of their doorbuster sales. I was in the market for a nvm as I hunt hogs at night. For the price when it was on sale, I couldn't pass this up. It works on IR, which has three variable settings. I usually use the highest setting because you can see more. This is an all digital nvm, which means there are no tubes to wear out. It runs on three AAA batteries.
Pros: Lightweight and compact, it can fit in your pants pocket or shirt pocket. has a nice wrist strap. You can see everything in crisp black and white in pitch black darkness. My dogs didn't know I was watching them...their eyes lit right up, so I'm assuming the hogs or varmints will too. Great image in viewfinder. Haven't used it in the woods yet, so don't know how it works in the field.
Cons: If there is a light source around, like the porch lights from the houses across the street, it overloads the nvm and you get streaks/bands through the image, making it worthless. However, i believe that in the field, when used for hunting, where there are no artificial lights, it should work just fine.

I highly recommend this nvm to anybody needing a night vision device on a budget. Get one!

The price was right so I picked this up just to have something in case the SHTF. Unfortunately it is more for fun and not for any security purposes. The reasons why are 1) it shines a red visible light that reflects back to be amplified in the viewer. While the light isn't bright like any flashlight, it is bright enough in pitch black that anyone else in the room or area would see it and be able to shoot at the light (which is your head). 2) I wanted to be able to see someone creeping around the yard but since it requires the light, that light reflects of any window and you can't then see what is outside that window. Yes you could open the window but that sound and the visible red light will give away your position.

So for looking for wildlife or just seeing around in the dark it may be fine. For security work I guess I will have to find something that costs big bucks. :-(

My father has been wanting a pair of night vision binoculars, which are incredibly expensive compared to this item, so I thought that I would try this. Unfortunately I ended up returning it. He wanted the NV for security purposes, seeing if anyone/thing is lurking around outside, that sort of stuff.
I first tried the mini aura in pitch black, at night in a room with all lights off - and I was amazed how well I could see everything! It's pretty neat in PITCH BLACK. However, the next night, I went outside to try it - it was fairly dark, besides a security light in the front and the moonlight. The Aura preformed much worse with any source of ambient light around, even just a little bit. The image becomes very streaky, and it seems that the range at which I could see was much worse as well. It was just no good, and really I could see better without the Aura. I tried adjusting the strength to no avail. It just doesn't preform well unless there is absolutely no light around - so out in the woods or something, you may like this thing...but not with a full moon.
It was a lot smaller than I'd anticipated - it just didn't feel worth the price to me for that alone, but then seeing how it preformed outside in mostly moonlight, I was too disappointed and returned the item. For a fun gadget, if you have the money to spare for it, it IS a neat device.
The return process was easy.

This little night vision monocular really impressed me in comparison to my old gen 1 scope. The black and white image quality is very clear and pronounced with a decent field of vision. The image quality of this unit compared to any gen 1 scopes green image is profound, far superior. This unit is also small, very small. It is only slightly larger then a pack of playing cards. If you're on the fence between units in this price range I strongly suggest you pick this little unit. I'm sure glad I did. I'd take this over almost any standard gen 1 monocular at any price range, I think it's simply better technology.

Performs very well for such a small scope and at this price range. Sturdy design and nice rubberized outside for good grip. The image is very clear and works well at low light without the IR light and it works really well with the IR light on. It really shows nice detail on all the settings - not much difference I can tell between full power, 60% or 30%. As mentioned by some of the other reviewers, it is probably best for viewing wildlife and not ideal for stealth because you really need the IR light when it gets dark and while the red IR light is certainly not as bright as a flashlight, it is definitely visable and will probably give away your position. I wished it worked a better in total darkenss without the IR light because I bought it in case of prowlers on my property. When I turn on the IR light with my fly screens or windows closed, the viewer screen looks just like you shined a flashlight onto the flyscreen or glass. The light and glare just won't get past the screen/window and into the yard unless you're pressed up against it. Other than that, I love the scope and will be using it on hikes and camping trips.
