    X Stand night vision

    Anyone own the X Stand night vision? Local store has a sale on the Sniper pro Digital Night vision Binoculars. heck anything sniper has to be good right. I know any of these will be battery eaters. I am just tempted by the sale price.
    That right there is a warning sign for me. I have night vision but IMO more is better.
    Just when I see a real sale and the words sniper and Pro I get concerned. This one is a basic model no built in camera. Might be nice to have a lower cost one to beat up looking for rodents at night on the farm.

    So what the heck. Toys are toys and $100 is not a going to break me. First it is big In some ways reminds me of my old PVS 4. Surprising the day time 2x zoom works pretty good. Took it in dark basement and it really reminded me of walking with PVS4.
    While I would not recommend it to most I bet I could drive with it at night if I had to. I have to try it with a rifle, hand gun and range finder. Takes 8 AA batteries . 7 levels of IR settings. 1.3 pounds with out batteries. When it gets dark out more playing with it. At the time the PVS-4 was around they were about a $6,000 item. When Army was phasing them out used if you found them on the market $3,000 . So $100 for this does not seem all that bad.
    This one is Model XANB20 of course it is an "Deluxe" The neck strap must make it a deluxe.

    Tried it outside last night looking over an empty field. Not impressed even for a cheap one. Need to play with it a bit more before I list it as junk.

    I really should do some sort of night vision but I am not all that knowledgeable. I know they can get pricey for quality units.

    Good stuff is expensive. There is some affordable stuff that works well enough for most. At least this model of the the brand is looking like a bust. It takes time to learn to walk and drive with night vision. field of view is reduced and depth perception suffer.
    First time you walk in a field with it on you will like take a tumble.
    For around your home a lot of the security cams have good night vision.

    After playing with it some more I decided to keep it. It has some use and is not totally worthless. Best up close 100yards or less at night. The focus is touchy but works slightly above the lowest except-able level. It will expose rodents you would not see in an area.
    At 450 yards markers /signs can be seen that you would not see with out it. Vehicles sitting in the dark can be seen at much long distance. Moving objects you would likely miss in the dark are easy to pick up. Adjusting IR level up and down helps clear up your view. There is much better out there but at a much higher cost.
    If it had cost $10 dollars more I would return it.
