Well, I done done it. I finally bit the bullet and upgraded from a Armasight Predator 336 to the Pulsar Trail XQ38. Me for, if I was going to spend the money, there was 3 features that it had to have. The first was it had to have an internal video recorder. I was tired of messing with wires and the MDVR. Second was it had to have a rechargeable battery, and finally I needed the Picture-in-Picture option. My budget was $3000-3500 and I was able to get everything that I needed and more with the Pulsar Trail XQ38. If you are considering either upgrading or buying a thermal for the first time, here is a quick review video that might help out. I've done much of the research so hopefully you won't have to...

They’ve had one firmware update since I received the scope. The update was pretty easy
