    Quick reply.
    Yes bought one just over a month ago.
    SNDWAY 1000.
    $NZ132 delivered to the door.

    For the price I believe excellent. Tidy compact little unit. Optics are clear and light though probably not up there with the more expensive models.
    I haven't taken it into the bush and I don't believe that it would stand up to a lot of moisture.

    The readout is in standard LCD grey so can be a little hard to read when sighting on something in the shadows.
    It does meters or yards, also has speed and angle functions, not that I have tried them as yet.
    Have ranged different objects that I knew the distance to and I believe it is accurate to within -+ 2 meters.
    The furthest distance I have ranged was a farm shed at 1074 meters.

    I purchased it mostly to help me get more accurate at judging distances by eye.

    For me and the purpose I want it for it has been exceptional value.

    Hope that helps.

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I also have the SDNWAY 1000. Have had it for about 6 months now and I rate it very highly. Would definitely recommend it to anyone
