All that I've read about them is they're a ripoff and itty bitty.

Try hunting with this... "The physical screen is 13/16" wide by 9/16" tall. Due to the border and battery display, however, the actual viewable area is 21/32" x 15/32" tall. Basically, you can cover it with a stamp and have paper left over."

Ads show a reticle, when it arrives, there isn't one, so they say.

Just what I've read, YMMV.

I read that review as well, but think that was for the t10 model. Per TP rep the t12 does have 3x and a chevron recticle in red or black and another type of reticle as well. It does have a small screen though and that concerns me also. My eotech and other scopes don't have much for screen size either and they work alright, so I'm hopefull and decided to it a go. Planning on going up to my buddy's place next weekend and will put it to the test. I'll try and take some video and share how it does.

What are you missing?

You are missing clarity of image, image size, and the fact that they are so bright as to nearly be blinding. For airsoft might be fine, but target identification can be quite difficult because of the low resolution at hunting distances.

I would not call them a ripoff, but I would say that they are a poor technological purchase

Agreed. Came in today and it will go back out tomorrow. Very weak and a pixel was burned out to boot. Oh well.

Just rented the armasight Zeus 336 and it rocks! No comparison.

There is a T14 coming out in April that has a 2x8 zoom, the screen is the same size as an Eotech and has double the resolution. There is also a choice of 2 reticle so, chevron or box and you can take pictures of video with them. Should be about 999.00

So that would be a 160x120 resolution optic? That is still going to be a very short range optic given the low resolution.

And you know, it will probably be great for that.
