    Pulsar is definitely one of the better value brands of thermal on the market, but their scopes have always been fairly large and bulky.

    This new one looks more streamlined, and it has onboard video recording so it will be going head-to-head with the other onboard option on the market, the ATN Thor HD. There are also some great deals out there now on older Pulsar models.

    Thanks Dink.

    Obviously the OP and I have different interpretations of "Value" brand.

    If you want a thermal scope for hunting, that is a value brand. $6k - $10K+ puts you in the higher end thermal units.

    ATN seems to have handle on the software bugs for the HD line from the reviews I've seen. Longevity and customer service are still question marks. I haven't had a chance to look through the Echo, but I've been looking for one locally.

    The MSRP for the new Pulsar is in the $3K-$5K range.
