That's some pretty impressive specs right there! Any major blems to speak of in your tube? I'll be ecstatic if I get similar specs on my unit

The only thing I had tried before buying was binos with a friend and an old gen2 GP monocular. I'm blown away with how well this gen3 WP looks, but driving and walking/stalking with binos is much easier than the monocular. I'm not bitching about monoculars, I just drove the V8 before buying the V6.

Great specs. The blemish looks like it would draw your focus when looking at a wall, but you can barely see it when outside and actually using the monocular.

Seems like you can find someone with everything here on ARF. The guys over on the OMG Night Vision thread seem to buy the latest and greatest of everything.

I ordered a PVS14 on July 5rd arrived on Sep 3rd.

I’m new to NV and would appreciate any comments about the specs. I’m not sure how to interpret them.  There is one small barely visible blemish in zone three.

Can anyone confirm if the PVS14s have the external gain knob like the standard military ones?  Also do they use Carson glass?

Thanks ahead!

PVS 14 ordered 7/3 via web @  1847 EST.
Recieved 9/5 on paper looks solid.

Lum.  2221

Halo.  .89

EBI.   .91

Res.  64

FOM.  2080

SN.   32.5

As they stated...auto gated....correct looking coatings no mystery glass.  Similar spot to below post.

Updated to say this bitch is awesome. Super high quality clean bright image very good performance spot disappears while off a white wall. While "dunder" won the damn powerball with his specs a few posts down im definitely a winner. Great deal super happy.

one spot at 8 O'clock around the border of zone 2 and 3.  Should not be a problem once outside.

Just got my 14

lum - 2331
halo - .73
ebi - .63
res - 76
fom - 2667
s2n - 35.1

Question.  Is it ok to use these in a dark building with some sunlight coming through door frames, nail holes etc?  No direct rays and you can't see your hand in front of your face with the lights off.

was worried about the spot on mine, but otherwise it was great specs. Once I got out and started using it, you will never notice it. Its a non-issue outside of looking at white walls in the dark.

With these tubes, I'd take a great spec tube with a blem over a clean,  so-so tube.

First XLS 14 on the EE.

Honestly, it took longer than I'd figure and only asking for a $150 profit.

Really liking my 14 so far.

Quick question on the Data Record:

Under "Spots" should it point out spots and where they are?

nice! I ordered on the 5th, was quoted 8-10 weeks.  Hopefully they're catching up quick, think we're at about 11 weeks at this point.  Definitely excited to get my notice, been watching my email like a hawk.

I was quoted 8-10 weeks also.  Be sure to check your junk folder.  All the other emails I have received from TNVC went to my inbox but for some reason the shipping notification went to junk.  

It actually showed up a day early and they attempted delivery around 11:30 today but of course I am at work and it requires a signature.  Every other time they show up well after I am at home.  Just my luck.

I checked, no go.  And I have gotten all their other emails, but appreciate the reminder to check that.  

My order date was 7/5 and I haven't seen any others say they ordered that day and got shipping just yet so I'm probably further down the list.

PVS-14 ordered 7/4.  Arrived 9/21.  Able to liberate from FedEx 9/23.

This is my first NV device and I am very impressed so far.  I stared at the wall in my closet for like 5 minutes looking for any kind of imperfection but I honestly can't find anything.  

Still learning the specs but from what I can tell they seem pretty decent except maybe the Lum on the lower side.  Any comments?

Let me guess still not taking orders?

I got my LDI CQBLs and Wilcox from you then deployments got in the way.  Still have two Gen3 one L3 and one ITT pvs14s so not a rush, but did the price go up a little since then?

Correct, ordering is still closed according to their website. I am sure they will announce here as well as email once they are caught up enough to resume ordering. Price still reflects the same $2,455 for the PVS-14 unit according to the website:

https://www.nightgoggles.com/shop/night-vision/night-vision-goggles/ngi-pvs-14-xls-elbit-g3tfwp/

The promotional pricing was $100 cheaper. But, that expired back at the end of July.

Burn in EBI phot max: .66

Center resolution: 76
FOM: 2416.8
Signal to noise: 31.8

No blems when I looked through it briefly. A friend that knows more tells me these are amazing.
