Armasight NV monocular

by Epicurean pariah, from United States, GA Written on October 22, 2014
I get a kick out of this device. The monocular is clear and crisp in moonlight. When the infra red is lit it will illuminate out to 100 ft/ 35 yds.
I use this monocular to check out the critters in the back 40 and if the gain is turned down almost to the point where the image fades, this scope displays the hint, a whisper of color. I would call it subdued color. The unit fits well in the hand, feels solid and is lightweight. I really can not fault this thing, for what it is, it works fine and at the price I think is a bargain. O.P. also sells at least two illuminators that afix to the monocular, one is not adjustable and reaches out to about 100 yds., and another has adjustable features and claims to illuminate much farther out....
Pros:
  • Subdued color
Cons:
  • none... yet
Best Used for:
  • Night life spotting
Would recommend: Yes

Great night scope

by Steve F, from United States, TX Written on October 6, 2014
This is a great night time spotting scope. Minimal moonlight provides a clear view and on moonless nights the infrared illuminati works well. Battery life is very good too. This little digital scope is comparable to my Gen 3 scope but for a fraction of the cost. Bright light does not harm it and it actually works fine in the day....

Great Value!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 1, 2013
This unit far exceeded my expectations. The image quality is better than some of the much more expensive units I've used. The built in IR illuminator is also much better than most self contained lights. The main advantage of this digital version is that lights in an urban environment don't flare nearly as bad as traditional units. Range is very good with both the image and IR. I use it for hog hunting and it picks up eye shine (IR on) reflection at over 100 yards. I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a good night vision monocular. I don't think it's possible to get anything even close to this quality without spending considerably more money. This is the fourth Armasight product I've purchased in the last year. They have all been much better than I expected for the relatively low cost. I think Armasight's products overall are an excellent value. I have had zero issues with all four products. Also as usual great service and fast delivery from Optics Planet.
Pros: Price, Resoloution
Cons: None at this price!...

Excellent performance for the price!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 11, 2013
Well I have had this device for a few weeks and have tested it in a variety of conditions.

Under ideal conditions you can see a decent distance. Not long after I got it I tried it out on a big open field close to my place. I was able to read a highway sign that was about 100 yards away but the cool thing was that the green highway sign was noticeably green.

What really impressed me was how it performed last night on a clear moonless night. I was on a very dark road and was able to make out a street sign 2/10 of a mile away. Further down the road I was not able to see a good distance but that part of the road is in thick forest. All I could see clearly was the area the IR light lit up but with the gain set just right I could still distinguish different colors. I want to stress that everything within the IR lights range was perfectly clear as in I could see various different blades of long grass that stood out.

On my way back home I decided to stop by a pond to see how it would look through the device. Distances ranged from 10-45 yards. While scanning the shore I quickly discovered that a herd of deer were eating and drinking around the pond. And it wasn't just the clear shape of the deer that stood out the most. I could clearly see they were brown deer standing in green vegetation. I did have the IR on and had to fiddle with the gain to really make the color differences stand out. 1 buck, 3 does and a fawn. I was able to make out all this detail and color on a moonles...

Awesome! Great entry level NV that actually works!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 9, 2013
Great little unit. Took my a while to establish that the lens adjustment was cranked tight, called customer service and they had me straightened out in moments-very helpful to have that support.The 4x zoom really reaches out there, but you do have to tweak the focus as you use it (obviously!). Can't recommend this enough, unless you have a few grand to spare for Gen 3...
Pros: Only $200, works good long distance without the IR
Cons: For $200? There arn't any! Blew my friends away!...
Would recommend: Yes

Thanks for the good job!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 2, 2013
I always knew that somebody will eventually invent a decent, high quality and inexpensive night vision monocular. I waited several months for this product release. I'm writing this review because I received this unit yesterday and I'm really satisfied with the purchase of Prime DC 4x and I want to say thanks to guys from Armasight for this good job. I like the picture clearness and brightness and what's more important is that it is colourful.. It is very light-weight and easy to operate....
