I could not be happier with this optic.
I own and regularly use a wide variety of reflex and holographic sights (Aimpont H1, Eotech, Trijicon RMS, Vortex, Etc.). The fit and finish is solid. I would have liked to get one of the early release aluminum hood versions, but the polymer is fine. The integral mount is well designed and pre-adjusted tensioned for just the right fit on a pic rail out of the box.
I have an astigmatism so most reflex type optics will "bloom" on me. I see very little blooming on the Tru-Dot both with the naked eye and with the Aimpoint 3x mag I am running with with.
I can't report on battery life yet. However, the instant on feature is key for me. Unless it is Aimpoint H1 where my batteries will last years, I always carry extra batteries if I forget to leave an optic on. Don't need to worry about that with the Tru-Dot's delayed off and instant on.
I like that the field of few is larger than my Eotech...
In my opinion this is one of the best red dot sights out there, and definitely the best in the $300-450 price range. As a soldier and an avid shooter I've used most of the main Red Dot and Holographic sights, and have found significant flaws in many of them. I've tried the Aimpoint PRO, Aimpoint ACO, Aimpoint CCO (Comp M4), Trijicon MRO, Holosun 403B, EOTech 512 and others.
Many of those listed above had strong points, but they also had weak points. I loved the good visibility of the EOTech, but for people with astigmatisms, holographic sights can often look like one large red blob that obscures the target. I liked the durability and crisp red dots of the Aimpoints, but hated looking through the narrow tube and how obscenely large and heavy they were. The Trijicon MRO seemed promising at first, but the lens tint, fishbowl effect, and red glare render them obsolete despite their innovative approach to a micro red dot.
Sadly I must update this review with my longer term testing results of both this non-pro model and the pro model. The Mepro RDS is a very flawed sight and I don't believe just due to manufacturing defects, since I've tried two of them: the first one I had was this non-pro version (non-mil-spec), which was so bad I returned and tried buying the more expensive mil-spec pro version instead hoping it would be better (supposedly the Mepro M5 sight used by the IDF).
I really, really wanted to keep this sight because I LOVE: the wide field of view, the appearance of the sight, rugged durability, and the simplicity of installation. This would be a perfect sight if not for its major flaws. These flaws apply to both the pro and non-pro version. The only real difference between the two is the pro version has a better designed hood and slightly different brightness knob. For the price of the pro version, you can get a high end Aimpoint, which has none of the flaws mentioned here...
