I've got a couple. One 3-9x40 and one 2-7x33. They are pretty scopes in my opinion, especially for the price. I particularly like the Accurange reticle, the big circle around the cross hair center really helps in low light.
I have/ had three VX-II 2-7x33's and this scope is right there with them, being just a touch less bright with pretty much equal clarity in my experience.
It definitely without question is better in all regards than the VX-I 2-7x33 I just sold. I would say overall optic quality is in-between the two but closer to the VX-II.
As far as durability goes....cant say, they haven't been around long enough yet.
Hope this helps.
