Piece of junk

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 2, 2014
It's the cheapest made product on the market. The construction of leupold range finders is horrible and not durable at all for even delicate use. Highly not recommended. I suggest vortex they at least stand behind their product
Pros: Accurate when it worked
Cons: Not built for outdoor use...
Would recommend: No

Epic Fail

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 20, 2013
For this kind of money it should work very well and have Leupold quality optics.
It should not fail power up. Also, be careful what you buy it for. If you are using a rifle get the TBR version. The basic only provides LOS measurement.
Buy only if you trust that a $400 one will actually power up whereas the $350 version will not. Mine was a waste of time and tied up money.
Pros: Nice packaging looks rugged, has Leupold name on it
Cons: Did not work brand new out of the box. Would not power up, even though battery tested good...

Sweet, small unit

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on October 10, 2013
Accuracy TBD.
Pros: - Beautiful lenses! - Light. - Compact. - Very fast. - Quick start-up.
Cons: - For such a simple function and options, it has the most user-hostile setup ever. My friend has an older TBR with bells and whistles and his is even worse. - Could use units in feet. - Could use a tripod threaded mount hole. - Could use a manual OFF as well as 7 sec. timeout. - Could use a bit wider FOV....

Excellent

Excellent optics. Recognizes not-so-bright objects at long distances. Everything you would expect from Leupold. Works for hunting and golf.
Pros: compact, accurate, user friendly...

Simple & Accurate!

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, LA Written on May 22, 2013
Being my first Range Finder, I researched net overall reviews extensively. As with other Leupold Optics product line customer reviews, the RX-1000i write-ups continually stated strong performances, solid designs and great values in the Range Finder market place. My personal experiences with their binoculars and rifle\spotting scopes only helped to solidify my decision!

The RX-1000i is a work of art in simplicity, ergonomics and function. Ranging objects has proven excellent accuracy, from its 5 yard near field collections, all the way out to 650yds (farthest I'm able to sight). Repeatability has been surprising and differentiating between a line of bushes (485yds)versus the tree line (500yds)was quick, easy and consistent. The 3-level OLED reticle display makes sighting objects quick and simple, from daylight through dusk. The 6 power monocular view clarity is excellent with full range diopter adjustment (a little stiff, but just needs more use). I find operation is very straight forward and menu selection quick and easy to access. The unit with battery weights in a little over 7 ounces and can easily fit in my shirt, pant or coat pocket. Although Leupold doesn't claim it is full waterproof, they state it is weather resistant and can be immersed for short duration. It does have a very solid feel and I'm confident it'll take whatever hunting abuse I can dish out.

I really like my ranging buddy and will count on it to take accurate, long range shots when hunting game oppo...

Expected Reliability

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on October 30, 2012
I used this on a recent week-long hunt and ranged a dozen times throughout the day. It consistently read out distances from 7-650 yards. Past that you needed to concentrate on finding a suitable object to lase, like a flat rock in the distance.
At 6x magnification, aiming the reticle with one hand at far distances past 700 is a chore. You need to find a tree or rock on which to rest the unit for a steady sight picture.

The reticle brigtness can get washed out in full desert sun.


Scanning mode works great. Battery life has yet to be tested fully, but the indicator still shows a full charge after the week.

Overall, it's a nice piece of gear and I'm glad I convinced myself to spend a little extra for the Leuopold quality. I know I won't have to buy the same bit of gear twice.

A minor gripe is that the lanyard loop hole is the size of a teenager's cell phone attachment point. I purchased a maxpedition retractable lanyard tether and I had to use a snap ring from a hardware store to mate it to the rangefinder.
Pros: easy to use, comes with carry case
Cons: Lanyard loop holes are very small. 6x magnification bothersome at long range...
