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.

Nah, I know of nobody that makes one like that. Its a chinese airsoft toy sold by many airsoft companies.
Even the picture he has posted of the helmet has a "GOT HOP UP" patch on it, an airsoft term.

I didn't piss on anything. I was asking because it is clearly a fake unit. I also reported the item on ebay

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?

I reported it.

Under listing practices then inappropriate item description.

IMHO calling it a PVS14 is bullshit

It's labeled as a PVS-14. Why is that not misleading?

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.



whats misleading?

its clearly NOT a 3rd gen NV device. it says DIGITAL NIGHT VISION.

the buyer is a MORON.


Is it a PVS 14 or not?

I don't know anything about NV.



No

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.

They can be bought new from airsoft stores for $200 lol.

Current bid is nearly $900 with 2 days to go.

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.
