I do not he's any experience with the particular unit, but I would recommend not purchasing it. There really is not any quality "entry level" night vision options, such as that one.

ETA:
For a cheap monocular that will perform, I recommend trying the project inThis thread. Although it cant really be used as a weapons mounted option, it is by far the best option in the price range (under 400 dollars all said and done for me). Plus, it's a fun project. There is even a file to have parts printed on a 3d printer so you don't have to improvise as much and can almost just throw it together.

If you want a cheap toy to play with, take a look at the Xgen digital night vision monocular. They are cheap but work surprisingly good. I bought a used one on Ebay for under $100. I sent it to my nephew to play around with. It is perfect for his 7 year old son.

I have an Armasight Spark that is head and shoulders above Gen1. It is nowhere near Gen3 capabilities, but with an illuminator its quite usable and doesn't suffer from the Gen1 fishbowl effect nearly as bad. Just around the very outer edge of the image. You would do well to not get a traditional Gen1 unit. You could even find a used gen2 unit for not a whole lot more, and it would be cheaper in the long run as you will end up upgrading anyways.
I have an ITT N100 Gen 2 monocular that was $599 new in 1997 from Natchez. Which means you could probably get a used one now for $250-$300 (just a WAG). It and the Spark are on par with each other. Im not being a NV snob, but you can do better for the same or a little more money if you shop around.
