    Not to cause offense, but I gotta ask - are these votes for a product based on the fact that you chose that one, or have you actually compared a Romeo5 to, say, a Deltapoint Pro and have pros/cons to offer?

    Yes, I have one, among a half dozen or so red dots and reflex sights, and I recommend this one because it just works and is reasonably priced to boot. I offer that as my personal informed opinion, not as my product analysis, in the same vein as any other of a thousand product recommendations from one forum member to another member posted here, and that's the only basis on which it's offered.

    Owned one was great. Traded it off for something else. Sat on a 10/22 that I traded for a SKS. Will buy another one. When things calm down.

    My aimpoint M3 still has the original battery in it, should be changed just for its age at this point but my ACOG is always on and requires no adjustment for intensity under any lighting conditions, no battery either.

    I have two Romeo 5's. I'd buy one again, but not sure I'd put one on a home defense firearm unless I was severely limited on my budget. While I haven't had any issues other than some starbursting, it doesn't seem that much higher quality than the three Bushnell TRS-25's I have (which I've also haven't had any issues with).

    I feel much better with my Romeo 4h on my home defense rifle. Seems to have better build quality, the dot itself is very clear for me, and it doesn't hurt that the FBI chose one of the other 4 models for their patrol rifles.
