Great Sight

by superman, from United States, IN Written on August 20, 2014
The Lucid HD7 was a great value!! Very easy to mount, comes with everything you need. I thought the FDE was a great color, and matched my FDE AR very well. The sights were very bright and crisp, easy to use controls, and very clear lenses.
This is not magnified, so it was great for targets out to 25 yards or so. Seems to be ruggedly built, and for the price you can't go wrong. OpticsPlanet is for sure the best place to purchase, and I am very happy with mine....

Best Red Dot, OpticsPlanet is the best place to purchase

by Dadof3awesomekids, from United States, ME Written on August 6, 2014
This review is as much about opticsplanet as about the Lucid. The Lucid is the most durable feature rich sight around at this price or higher. Very clear reticle, love the auto or manual brightness option. The reticle options are great. The thing is completely waterproof, very user friendly, easy to get batteries. Yeah maybe you can't leave it on until your kids are in college like an aimpoint, but for $10 you can buy enough batteries to last just as long. Check out some of the in depth gear reviews on this, I did and you won't be disappointed.
Now on to OpticsPlanet, these guys were amazing, I originally ordered something totally different through walmart.com hut from opticsplanet, when I saw they had the lucid I called to change the order, it was very last minute and the representative bent over backwards and went way out of his way to get it done for me, now both the Black and FDE lucids were back ordered so I chose the black, but didn't really care, after a bit over a week I noticed the FDE was in stock, so I called, there were only 5 in stock, but again the representative went above and beyond and changed my order yet again to accommodate me and get my item to me faster. Everyone I dealt with was professional and courteous and went out of their way to be helpful....

lucid hd7 gen3

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, HI Written on March 25, 2014
This optic for the money is the best hands down it is rubber armored has excellent retical features that you dont have to zero in once thats done,the auto brightness works really well ,now for the goodies you can buy a scope coat from lucid which you will want to do once you see the quality of this optic the killflash thats made for this is actually made from high quality aluminum,not polymer and is nicely priced you can also get a screw in 2X magnifier even though I went with a 3X flip to side,this scope also uses AAA batteries,so thats easy and its tough as nails. It might be made in china ,but it is by far one of the best optics out there,and for the price vey hard to beat.
Pros: awesome optic for the money
Cons: made in china...

Outstanding

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MS Written on March 24, 2014
After searching and searching I found this sight. I had anxiety over buying a sight that was cheaper than the high priced sights it was said to contend with. Usually you get what you pay for. In This sight you way more than you pay for. If you have doubts at hit up youth and there are some guys that's can help sell you. I've put this up against an M-68 CCO and everything about the HD-7 beats the CCO. From the knob placements to the multiple reticles to auto off and the auto and manual brightness settings. Everything is better.
Pros: Over all value, functionality...

Pretty good range gear

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 2, 2014
Decent enough optic for the price. The reticles are crisp and usable (except possibly the inverted "V" one which seems very non-intuitive to me), the view is clear and reasonably bright, and the adjustments are much better than the gen 2 was. I really like that it uses a common AAA battery and the integral mount. The only real complaint I have is that it isn't waterproof. I tightened the battery cover down until I needed pliers to loosen it and then dropped it in about 6 inches of water (alongside an aimpoint pro). An hour later it had a significant amount of water inside the tube (the aimpoint was still dry as a bone). I removed the battery cap with the aid of my pliers and proceeded to empty several teaspoons of water out of the battery compartment. As it sat I was able to periodically drain more water or through the battery compartment until I had most of it out. It still turned on even with the water inside and seemed to work fine but I couldn't guarantee how long it would continue that way. As the title says, it's probably good enough for practice at the range or maybe hunting, but I wouldn't bet my life on this one. Then again, it costs less than half of what the cheapest aimpoint does - I guess this is one case where you get what you pay for.
Pros: Reasonably priced, tough, multiple reticles, uses common battery
Cons: Lens covers difficult to find/fit, NOT WATERPROOF...

Great red dot optic for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WI Written on February 23, 2014
I had an Aimpoint pro which I liked except for the fact that I have an astigmatism that I wasn't aware of until I looked thru the aimpoint and saw a red blob. Depending on the brightness level the blob got bigger and more distorted.
With the Lucid the reticles are crystal clear including the basic red dot reticle. I like the look of the optic as well. There are a lot of very positive reviews on the Lucid on the various forums as well as YouTube. Shipping was fast from Optics Planet. I will be a regular customer going forward.
Pros: Looks cool, acog like, nice reticle selection, 2moa
Cons: A little heavy at 13oz...
Would recommend: Yes

Olive Drab, not FDE, but still better than some others!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 12, 2014
Overall, this IS a pretty decent Red Dot for the money, and I wasn't ecpecting a Trijicon or Aimpoint here, just a decent sight in the same range as a Burris or Bushnell. What I got is actually a bit better than the Bushnell/Burris options, especially with the AAA battery, since I can use rechargeables!
However, perfection it is NOT.
There are a couple of minor points that keep it from being EXCELLENT at this price point - Things that I would think should be standard on ANY optic that isn't a knock-off of a knock-off.
First, the HD-7 doesn't have flip-up caps, while its closest competitor, the Vortex StrikeFire, does - STANDARD. Plus, the Strikefire comes with a 2X magnifier and green dot capability - but it doesn't have the AAA battery.
So come on Lucid, give us something a little extra? NOPE. Instead, all of the extras are exactly that. EXTRA, and not just a little extra. The QD setup cost $150. The Killflash is another $40. Did I mention Lens caps? Those aren't even available yet. A 2X screw-in magnifier is another $40.
To make it all a little harder to swallow, the setup for the mount is just a bit of a hassle too. It's got these huge screw, which are great to grab with your fingers or a wrench, but if you want to use a screwdriver in the slots provided, the screw pushes the screwdriver out of the slots as it tightens. It's a little gripe, unless you scratch your upper as a result. I think someone else mentioned they installed the screw heads on the wrong...

Very Crisp Optics and Reticles

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on January 13, 2014
I am very impressed with the Lucid HD7. The reticles are very clean, crisp and well defined. I also like the ability to utilize multiple reticles. I also have an Aimpoint PRO and two Leapers Red Dots and the Lucid offers a lot of value and quality for the money. I will know how well it shoots this Friday and will try it out on both .223 and .308 AR platforms.
Pros: High resolution Reticles; Multiple Reticles; Mount Included
Cons: None Yet...
