It appears to be the same technology in those Call of Duty Goggles, and stuff you see in walmart toy sections.

bidding up to $900 now.
Is there some way to report this ad as misleading? It's not a PVS-14 it's a toy replica, surely there should be some rules against that.

Ture, not a PVS-14, but If it's similar tech to the Pulsar digital night vision, may not be that bad.

Even the picture he has posted of the helmet has a "GOT HOP UP" patch on it, an airsoft term.

The absolute worst part is is that the description was pulled from an airsoft site that still contains not one, but two links to the website where it sells for $279.99

Yes, it's pitched at airsofters.

Yes, you can buy this unit for under 300 bucks.

But, the digital NV technology is real. It works. There was another company making viewers with this tech that were amazingly clear.

It's much clearer than gen 1 or even gen 2 intensifier tube style NV. But it's not as sensitive, last I checked. It needs the IR.

The ad DOES say "Digital".

It sucks for a bidder who didn't do any research.

So it's basically a digital camera with IR illuminators? Like a security camera?

Under listing practices then inappropriate item description.

IMHO calling it a PVS14 is bullshit

Why not? It takes less than 1min to report it, and hopefully save someone some grief from buying chinese junk.
It's not your typical case where someone is trying to skimp and buy cheap.

If all their buddies told them to avoid gen 1 .etc and they still bought gen 1 then they are stupid, but being mislead to buy a crappy airsoft toy that should not carry the name PVS-14 other than to say PVS-14 clone or replica is just wrong.

eBay is the safest place for buyers these days. It's hard to be a shady seller anymore. You can return an item regardless of the terms of sale. eBay requires all sellers to offer 14 day returns regardless of the issue. The buyer is pissed but the seller won't get away with it in the end. Not like he can disappear with the cash. eBay requires linked paypal/bank info now.

If the seller refuses to take refund ebay will take money from your account.
