1.0 out of 5 stars Tasco 8x21 are a much better pair of binoculars, September 18, 2012
This review is from: Tasco Essentials 10x 25mm Compact Binoculars (Electronics)
Bought a pair of these from a big box outfit yesterday. Took 'em home and pit 'em against the legendary Tasco 8x21 set.

1. The 8x21s were much more pleasing to look through

2. The 8x21s are clear throughout. The 10x25s are barely clear in the center and terribly fuzzy and distorted beyond the center point.

3. Of course the 10x25s are higher powered, but I believe I could still make out a whisker more detail with the 8x21s.

4. Eye relief is similar on each, but since the outer edges of the 10x25s are distorted, they have, essentially less eye relief and thus the 8x21s have a wider field of vision

5. The 8x21s are more compact

6. My 8x21s are every bit as clear as my more expensive and much larger and heavier Barska Atlantic 8x32s. The only benefit to the larger pair is the larger field of vision

7. The Tasco 10x25s might be the worst pair of binoculars I have ever had the displeasure of peering through. I returned them within about an hour of purchase

Dear Sketcha:
i agree completely...i tried to 'review' these, as well as the 8 x 21s, but it first 'mixed up' my reviews, and then deleted this one! don't know what is going on, but 'wake up, amazon!'....lol!
i agree with you though, and feel that the 8 x 21s are superior, in every way, to these, and these are substantially larger...i guess you could still call them 'portable', but they seemed almost double the size of the 8s, and not as clear, or easy to use, and the 8s did seem to show more 'detail', as you said, even though these were slightly 'larger' (the image size)...both had flimsy neck 'string', and both had pretty lame cases, but the 8 case seemed to cover them a bit more...still a space at the top on both, after you close the velcro...would be adequate, just to cover them, to put in a bag/purse/pocket, but that's it....would rank these 10 x 25 with 2 stars....if i had to stretch it, no greater than 3, for sure....the 8 x 21s i would give at least 4 stars...the 8s might not the clearest of images, but certainly good for the price/portability....way clearer than the 10 x 25s...
