I bought this because it was affordable, though I wanted a better monocular. It's all right. It'll work well for a walk through the woods, or other simple tasks, but for real night surveillance, it's not the best. The infrared illuminator comes on automatically, and cannot be turned off. All in all, it's a nice toy, but not much use for anything more serious.
We purchased the binoculars to experience the large population of wildlife passing through our large wooded backyard (1.25 acre). We use them often. Our grandchildren enjoy them the most. Great purchase.
