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. :-(
This isn't really a night vision scope in any way. It is an infra red video camera/monitor. It is virtually worthless in low light without the illuminator or outside the very limited range of the built in light source. Don't expect to see anything through it further then you could throw it. It is so useless without the IR light source that you can actually see in low light much better without the device.
Im calling this an "informed" review due to the number of reviews i have read on this monocular and similar products. Now that i have it and have used it, i can compare that to what ive read. From what ive read, alot of people want much more out of night vision, at this price point, than is realistic. Now, hold your horses on that thought, this little monocular is fantastic by any measure. For 95 dollars i am now able to see up to a hundred yards through my yard with great detail. And i asked myself the important question i think many of us on here wonder when looking for night vision devices. "Can I use this to see people or animals a solid distance in front of me, in complete darkness, with enough detail to make our who or what they are, and what they are doing?" Yes. Yes,yes,yes. Anyone who says otherwise has gotten a defective unit. Because for 95 dollars im able to use this stupid thing to pick out the details in the bark of a tree a solid 150 feet away from me. That is p-lenty enough for me. Now im not the owner of a large rural property, in which a more powerful device would be needed. Im in a suburban area with a fairly large yard, enough for this small device to show me whats going on at night, and i am usually able to scan about 1000-3000 square feet of space in front of me at any given angle of view. Thats assuming i can clearly see about 20-40 feet wide and about 100 deep.Additionally, this thing performs wonderfully in tight spaces, so that review about it not being suited for attics and crawl spaces, they are completely wrong.
Remember, this thing fits in my pocket without much trouble at all. So all in all, this device is very effective for how cheap and small it is. It has a surprisingly solid construction of what appears to be ABS plastic and hold three normal AAA batteries. I love that. My only question is how battery life holds up, but since it runs off AAA it can be replaced and as much as I need can be carried on me at any time of course. So it's designed for you to keep powering it wherever you need it really.
This appeared to be cheap and dodgy when i ordered it. What i got was far from that.
This monocular is seriously worth the money. 9/10
Pros: this is the smallest, lightest, least expensive NVD out there. It comes with an attached IR illuminator [this is important, because other Gen1 analog devices in this $-range do not, and none of them work w/o an external illumination source!] And being digital, this thing should NOT chew up batteries & spit them out the way the analog Gen1 NVD units do [altho' I haven't had mine long enough to test this theory, but I feel confident the efficiency is MUCH higher than analog units...]
Cons: The built-in IR light gives off a bright red [bullseye shaped, funnily enough!] glow visible to any creature that can see that color. The display brightness isn't controllable, & it is set WAY TOO BRIGHT, so you'll probably need to wear dark glasses to use this any length of time w/o eye fatigue [& you'll be completely night-blind in that eye for some time after use until your eye can regain dark-adaptation...]
Bottom Line: This unit works far better than any of the Gen1 NVDs close to in price, and is small enough to be pocketable and light enough that nobody can justify leaving it behind for its heft. You can roll your own by looking up the DIY videos on YouTube on how to adapt an old VHS or MiniDV video cam into a NVD, but that will end up costing you at least 1/2 what this does, be much bigger & clunky: in this, the folks at Carson stripped out all the excess hardware and just left you with the bare bones of the viewfinder circuit from one of those old videocams, & you know what? It works pretty good! Without the IR illuminator, it actually reveals less than a dark-adapted Eyeball, Mark1 Mod0, but *with* the IR lamp turned on, it's a whole 'nother ball game! Night vision devices are truly the key to unlocking a doorway into another world, the realm of night in which we humans are lacking the natural ability to function well [those glowy eyes of critters at night? They've got a built-in mirror on the backs of their eyeballs, to double the chances for the rods in their retina to catch the limited light available. We don't, so we get to stumble around in the dark while the raccoons, foxes, etc laugh at us! ;-) ]
As a sub-$100 entry-level device, I have to say this gadget is pretty much a no-brainer. That said, if you are willing to spend a *little* bit more, I'd check out one of the several variations on this theme that Amazon carries, simply because of the built-in camera capabilities and longer range [more power level adjustments to choose from] IR light: https://smile.amazon.com/Solomark-Monocular-Blue-infrared-Illuminator-Dark-records/dp/B00THZ2NFE/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1513923912&sr=8-4&keywords=solomark+night+vision+binocular
