I've have owned 3 Gen 1's, a Gen 2+, and Gen 3 units. For the money this unit although expensive is a good choice if you cannot afford a Gen 2. I don't think a few statements about this being a smaller leap to gen 2 as being an over statement although range is an issue in comparison. It is in fact the best Gen 1 I have personally ever used (By FAR). Initially, I was upset with the purchase then I remembered to take off the lens cap (LOL, Sadly not the first time). As far as gen 1 goes, it's really good. It has an auto gain, which I dislike and you must focus to each distance for clarity. The image quality is like I sated already the best gen 1 I have seen though based on maybe 5 or 6 in total. It was much more affected by the oil flares at the ranch than the gen 2 I had with me but to be fair they both sucked bad even at a 45 degree angle away from the flares or a flare nearly a mile away. Using the IR greatly increases your range and clarity just like every other night vision ...

These "nvg's", and I use that term loosely, are the worst set of NOD's I've ever put my eye through. Visibility is next to nothing, and that's just in a room. Outside, in the elements, this things offer nothing. With all of the military grade options out there, I let my kid play with this joke of a product. I'll stick with my 14's.

This a good value for the money and can be used in a variety of mounts and applications. Overall its a the best gen 1 I've had the opportunity to use. For the money you can't go wrong. You do get some fish eye effect.

I recently purchased the spark monocular and am very pleased with the performance of the unit, I also purchased the 3X lens which works very well. I plan to purchase the IR illuminator when I have saved enough pennies. The adaptor for mounting to a rifle scope works well also, I had to turn the focus on the spark maximum one way in order for it to focus. The customer service is very good. I would recommend this and any armasight products to a friend

Pros:  lightweight, small, waterproof, ease of use, mountability, accessories
Cons:  at this price, THERE IS NONE!
Would recommend:  yes

the need for a smaller, less pricey model has always been limited to products that lack performance, durability and application. AS WE KNOW OF ARMASIGHT, they have breached all of those with this NVM and the only limits are found in the next step up! YOU CANT expect 300 yards out of a sub $500 unit and with the ability to add the magnifier and the necessity, even for the larger and higher GEN models, a reputable IR source adds a TON of ability to see into the night. This is capable of helmet mount to ballistic or bump helmets and use of military style mounts, or simply use the available head mount or add the weapon accessory to your rail equipped favorite! Bright and CLEAR unlike many of the other Gen 1 models! In consideration to "competition", I have found NONE that will go out and come back the same way when facing inclement weather! Battery life is VERY respecatble and again, if you are going to compare, ARMASIGHT makes it hard to not have GEN 1 in your kit. A pack comes with ...

I purchased this as my first person piece of night vision. It works as expected, it cannot perform important tasks such as hunting but it does help to see in the dark. I returned mine to purchase some third generation nv, but this is a very good product if you can't afford 3rd gen.

Pros:  By far the best bang for your buck

Would recommend:  yes

Gear Guy wrote:

After reading so many positive reviews, I decided to try one myself. The reviews are accurate! I absolutely love the versatility of this monocular. It is small, light, and clear enough to be used effectively in all applications that Armasight has developed the adapters for. (head gear, rifle mounts, helmet mounts, camera mounts....etc) They even make an adapter to snap two of these things together and make super clear binoculars. Actually, I have been told that you get a 10% discount code when you review a product. I'm writing this review so I can purchase another Spark and that adapter. Buy one....You will love it!

I ordered th Spark CORE night vision monocular and it was shipped promptly. I was happy with how it worked. But, when not using it, remove the battery. After I received the monocular, I decided to get the IR810 Illuminator. Again it was shipped promptly. But, a special bracket that you need to attach the illuminator to the monocular is not automatically shipped with the illuminator. The good people at optics planet sell so many different products, that they cannot be expected to know all these things. Even after a couple of emails and a phone call, there "logistics" people still did not understand what I needed. So they had me call ARMASIGHT directly and they knew immediately what I needed and shipped it to me. It is absolutely amazing how much the illuminator increases the brightness of the field of view. Optics Planet sells good products and good prices.

Cons:  Glass

I've used the best night vision and thermal while in the military, but for the price this unit can't be beat. I wanted a cheaper purchase, and decided to gamble and try the Spark. The clarity of the CORE intensifier is far beyond a Gen. 1 unit. The company's claim of a high resolution approaching Gen. 2 or 2+ seems totally true. Very clear view, crisp central-view resolution with 50% starlight and above. The unit does fairly well below this level, but will require external IR illumination. I could see a person standing about 200 m away in near-full starlight w/ no additional IR and a dense background. CONS- Image brightness is lacking, but I am use to adjustable gain models. This was expected. Using IR obviously brightens things up quite a bit in the short to intermediate ranges. The glass in the lenses is not of the highest quality. There is quite a bit more "globe-effect" or edge aberration than I would have expected. The central portion of the field of view remains excellent, ...
