Switched from Night Vision to thermal, Have not been disappointed. It is light weight and battery life is sufficient for a normal hunt. controls can be a bit hard to use in the cold and dead of night. I can detect animals a mile away. the bore sighter feature gets you sighted in quickly. Only downside is that some nights the clarity of the picture is poor, it think due to dust or moisture in the air. I highly recommend this unit if you a looking at night vision. Night vision requires at least Star Light to work. Thermal can be used in the darkest of nights.
Pros: Light Weight,Cost,Setup,Startup
Cons: Buttons,Clarity of image
