For what you are paying it is good quality, made very well.But as everyone will tell you it's real hard to get an accurate yardage reading because the slightest movement, even when you think you are very still, it jumps all over so the best you can hope for is an approximate reading.I would still recommend this product for those of you who don't want to or can't afford the luxury of a few hundred dollars for a GPS or Laser, this is still a tool that can help you with yardage when markers are not available.
For the price, you cannot beat it. I find that it works well for me as a new golfer.
The view is quite clear and bright. Comfortable in your hand and compact enough to store easily. Usefulness is the main reason for the tool, that's where it fails. The magnification make it nearly impossible to stay still enough to read the yardage.
