Good value for money, with considerations
on June 10, 2017
Overall, these binoculars are good value for money and I recommend them to my students who purchase binoculars for a lab that I teach. They get the job done without a significant investment and are actually reasonably well-built and pretty good optically. A serious user can tell where the costs are cut to sell 10x50 binoculars at a $40 price point. The images are not as sharp as produced by high-end products and the infinity focus is a little mushy, meaning that the image doesn't "snap" in and out of focus near the infinity setting for viewing distant landscapes or the sky. Also when used near infinity, the focus-knob rocker must be rotated far to the left, thus making the finger slots slightly awkward to use for refining the focus. Most users may not find these issues to be significant for casual use or viewing at intermediate distances, especially when considering the $40 investment. I had no illusions about what I would be getting for this price so, yes, I would buy them again.
