    Yes, they work and accurate too. Someone did a review on here, Dougie I think. Way cheaper if you order directly from China/AliExpress. My only criticism is that that they fall down a bit in low light, but excellent value.

    Thanks MB. Already saw the price on AliExpress. Thought it was too good to be true.

    AliExpress is fine, just be a little savvy in choosing the vendor - good ratings, high number of sales etc. Delivery time is 1 - 2 months though. That's the downside.

    Iíve got one... put it head-to-head with my bossís $1600 Leica and they were within 1m of each other at 250m. Slightly lower light transmission and the digital display can be a bit hard to read as others have pointed out, but I canít see myself needing to upgrade it any time soon.

    I'm curious, wow would you do with it on its own, like if you find yourself out there and you've left your binoculars in the car?
    Bad choices do kill.

    Yep. Got one off Aliexpress, I think a 900 or 950 or something. Does what it says on the box. Very happy with it. Was about 135 delivered, was here in about 10 days to 2 weeks.

    Edit, just checked account, its the 1000m model, and was 89usd, so whatever that works out at on the day.

    The issue would be the small field of view, and I think most rangefinders would be similar in that respect. You might lose a few minutes at either end of the day due to the light transmission. I find it hard looking through a monocular for any length of time as well. Certainly wouldn't walk back to the car for my binos though, and it's small enough to keep in easy reach in a chest pocket.

    Thanks all,

    After reading all the comments and reviews, I ordered one of AliExpress. Now it is just the long wait until it arrives!
