I still have more testing to do but my initial impressions are that the picture is actually far clearer than I expected with a great range of focus adjustment however the light amplification is a little lower than I hoped for but probably about right for the price.
Now as others have mentioned these work GREAT with the help from IR. Unfortunately the built in IR emitter puts out a red light that can be seen when looking at the unit but I tested it with some of my higher end IR flashlights that do not do show any visible light and it worked just as well. So my advice if you are trying to be as minimally visible as possible while using these but still want to have outstanding see in the dark results is to pair this with an external IR light. The flashing beacon on my SureFire helmet light was nearly blinding with these despite being completely invisible to the naked eye for example which be a good way to mark your campsite if trying to find your way back in the dark.
My only other concern is the durability both from bumps and moisture but only time will tell. For under $200 I think this is a solid value and so I'm giving it 4 stars or about an 85% rating.
