Depends on what you need it for...Yes, the Leupolds have a great reputation, and 99% of the folks who own 'em love 'em. I *think* there is an issue with that one on battery life, iirc there was some mention of it around here a while back. They may have addressed that issue, but I can't be certain. I don't own one, so I just sort of follow these things and file them away...and depending on which brain cells they attach to, I may or may not be able to recall them on demand
IOR makes a something sort of similar to this, but I don't know how well they've pulled it off.
Anyway, the Leupold has a circle/dot type reticle, similar in concept to the Eotech, but with the added ability to zoom to 3x magnification. Sort of like combining an Eotech and and an ACOG.
Are you looking at this for something specific, or just sort of "tire kicking"?
