I bought this for marine use, seeing unlit pilings and channel markers at night....didn't know much about infrared nightvision scopes, thought video quality was like we see on TV and movies, didn't know that stuff was 4 to 5 thousand dollars, or reserved for military....so this is relatively crude black and white image...but hey, it WORKS PERFECTLY for piling spotting in total darkness, and is extremely easy to use while steering...this is one-handed, easy click through 5 preset video settings till you get the image that works best in those conditions....I'm satisfied. I had considered taking it back for a bigger, or waterproof model, til I discovered they all use $7 Lithium 123 battery, while this little XGen uses 3 universal AA batteries I could find in any remote island I might sail away to, so I'm keeping it. Thanks Night Owl ! :)

This thing worked fine for a few days and died. After I got it back from repair it died again. What a wast of time and money!

This device is very interesting, being digital and clear to view, however the LCD screen is much too bright and spoils the night vision of your eye, and also the field of view is so small that you cannot orient yourself with this device at night.
