Review overview

Bushnell is a world-famous company that values ​​its authority. It would seem that reviews of monoculars should only be positive, but this is not the case. The opinions of users turned out to be not only different, but absolutely contradictory. The real positive aspects include the light weight and compactness of the device, in this regard it is so invisible that you can carry it with you all the time. This fact is noted even in negative reviews.

Most of the owners of monoculars are enthusiastic about the possibilities of night vision, clear images, excellent zoom, good range. Celebrate the quality of the lenses and the reliability of the sturdy, non-slip housing.

At the same time, in other reviews, except for the pleasant price formed by a successful action, contains a solid negative. Night vision is not at all, the image is blurred, and the plastic on the case is unlikely to stand the random drop. Especially indignant buyers declared range of 8000 m, but in fact there is no 800, and 16-fold increase, although the device does not increase even 2 times.

Having studied the problem deeper, we found the answer to these contradictions. It turns out that some little-known online stores under the brand of the famous brand are sold for 1000-1500 p. Chinese fakes, actually toys with plastic lenses without any spraying fullvision, in a weak body, which will not protect any of the water, nor from shocks, although in the proposed characteristics all these “miracles” are promised.

There is only one conclusion: good equipment cannot be cheap, and it should be purchased on sites that are official suppliers of optical devices from Bushnell.
