    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It's small, and cheap
    Cons:
    Frankly I can't tell any more detail with it compare to naked eye within 150 meters or so, in fact I couldn't even tell if it h...

    Okayish

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It's cheap and works, the sound quality is actually decent.
    Cons:
    The whole thing is pretty flimsy, plastic parts are not very molded and looks like something from the dollar store. The spring ...

    Good price, with limitations

    posted by jzmtl on 12/08/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Good price, well made with sturdy aluminum body. Only the front screw requires slot in rail. Both green/red dot works despite some claims otherwise.
    Cons:
    Serious parallex issue, better get used to keep the red dot on target and centered in viewfinder. But at this price I guess it'...

    Decent build, some tinkering required

    posted by jzmtl on 11/16/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Mount and body are quite solid, thick wall with o-ring all around. Mount holds tight onto rail and laser body. Came with both twist/momentary switch and remote mount switch.
    Cons:
    One of the o-ring came pre-broken, the set screw holding laser module inside the sleeve isn't tight so module slid around and l...

    Great value

    posted by jzmtl on 10/22/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Great value, feels about the same as brand name rings several times the price
    Cons:
    If your rifle has non-adjustable stocks, and they are the right height for open sight, this will be a little too tall. I used t...

    Decent priced doodad

    posted by jzmtl on 09/18/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    It's cheap and it works, so why not?
    Cons:
    A little slippery, but chuck it in a drill and rough up with some 100 grit sandpaper works wonders. The screw joints aren't rea...

    Good for the price

    posted by jzmtl on 09/18/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Clear and bright image quality, quite well made. Joints are tight and focus knob is easily adjustable one handed
    Cons:
    Whatever rubber used stinks like chemical, needs a few days of air out. The twist up eye cup doesn't really go down enough to a...

    Works but not very sensative

    posted by jzmtl on 09/30/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    The shaft appears to be made entirely from aluminum (the 3 ridges are rubber inserts). The machining and anodizing is damn good, especially for this price. Works on my i9100, however see cons.
    Cons:
    Not very sensitive, sometimes a touch is enough but other times it really need to be pushed down, i.e. launching apps when I wa...

    Not bad

    posted by jzmtl on 06/17/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is an actual working mirror compass (not lensatic like the title claims), not some weird mirror/lensatic compass combination like sku 6720 which doesn't work as either. Compared it with my pro grade compass and it's pretty accurate. It also comes an in...
    Cons:
    The bezel is very hard to turn so needs two hand to work, although some silicone lube fixed it immediately. The mirror lacks a ...

    Works, not very accurate

    posted by jzmtl on 06/17/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very cheap, same thing from well known Finnish brand cost 6 times as much, and it works alright too. The compass is actually pretty accurate, I compared it with my $70 pro grade compass and it's pretty much dead on.
    Cons:
    The thermometer display lower than actual temperature, about 5 degrees lower in fact. Not that serious but it seems this is eas...
