Does anyone have any experience with the above rangefinder?
I found one for $325 is this unit still worth the money or worthy of consideration compared to the newer rangefinders on the market today?

I'd put the money either towards a Zeiss PRF or Leica. I'd bet that even the $400-500 Bushnells would be better. I had the newer Swaro rangefinder and while it had great glass and ranged farther than my current Zeiss, acquisition time was noticeably slower. I can't imagine the first-gen Swaro being better. The Zeiss will range out as far as 1300 yards and quickly/reliably at ranges under 800 yards. I had a little trouble with it on gently rolling, snow covered terrain, but that was as challenging as it gets for rangefinding...plenty of opportunity for false readings with any LRF.
