I received the item today 11/5/2013. Looked great. Opened the batteries, put them in the unit. No go. Tested the batteries. Dead as a doornail. Called OpticsPlanet and Barska. Both said feel free to return it, they won't send new batteries. That's pretty lousy customer service. I'll buy a different model from another vendor.
Cons: You'll have to pay $20 for batteries
