Hit or Miss

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 21, 2013
Bought six of these for prizes to give a troop of kids. First one opened was all blurry. But no dirt on lens, and no adjustments would clear up the view. Granted, didn't expect Zeiss quality, but I have a less expensive Junglee performs way better that this.
Pros: Cheap
Cons: Doesn't perform...
Would recommend: No

Not even an acceptable level for a TOY.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MN Written on October 9, 2013
Looked at the reviews while standing in front of the display @ Fleet Farm. 4.5 rating and $10.00, must be a good deal!

The only negative mentioned was the short focal length, and one mention of distortion at the EDGE of the field of view. Several mentions that it was workable, and a good value for the (low) price.

If it's less useful than your naked eyes, what value does it have?! This monocular is not acceptable even as a TOY. It is incapable of being focused, cloudy and distorted.

I am near sighted and wear glasses. I am used to lower price optics that require me to remove glasses to get the focal point close enough to use them, and use the focus feature to adjust for both distance AND my prescription- And expected this item to be similar.

Surprise, surprise- the focus adjustment of the eyepiece brought the image @ approx. 200 yards ALMOST to a useable level, then progressed back to useless. The lenses are cheap plastic, cloudy, milky looking and of poor light transmission.

I own Zeiss, Leupold, Burris, Steiner, Bushnell and "no name" oriental optics. I was emphaticaly NOT expecting the performance of a high end tool, but something better than the UNaided eye, at distance and with brigjt daylight, at a price point that would make losing the device while traveling inconsequential.

I have a background in physics and understand the parameters and trade offs in designing optical systems. This monocular isn't worth $1.00, let alone $10.00.
Cons: Useless. Inca...

It's OK for $10

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MN Written on June 7, 2013
I bought this knowing it was inexpensive and the product didn't blow me away. But it does work well, though eye relief could be better, easily fits in a pocket or on a belt, rubber coating should help it hold up is useful in a million applications.
Pros: fits in pocket and comes w/a sheath, rubber coated, $10
Cons: eye relief could be better...

Good Value for Price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on February 8, 2013
I bought three different brands of monoculars at one time and this Tasco is my second favourite of the bunch. I bought it because it had a 5 star rating and all the reviews about it were good. Honestly, after reading the reviews, I expected a bit more than what it is but it's still a good little monocular for the price. I trust the Tasco brand but I like the Celestron UpClose G2 10x25 Monocular, Box 71213
CI-M5-UPCLOSEMONOC-71213 best of all. Even so, I liked this one good enough to buy some more for gifts. This monocular is definitely worth the purchase price.
Pros: Easy to Use, Durable...

Tasco 10x25

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on December 24, 2010
10x25 is a good point-n-see-it-now device.
Tasco makes a tough and very useful little optic for a reasonable price.

Pros: Clear optics, good field of view, small, light, and simple...

Tasco 10x25

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 9, 2009
These are a great value. The optical quality is good. They aren't the best on the market (obviously), but for the money, you can't do any better. I bought them for my 7-year old daughter and she loves them. They are in line with other Tasco products.
Pros: Great value, good optics
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes
