I had the 512, sent it back even though I don't think it had the recall issue.
Bought the T1, I'd never go back to Eotech after using the T1 micro.

Besides the fact that my 512 always had a fuzzy halo that bugged me which I'll say might be due to my astigmatism.

The T1 is clean, clear
With major battery runtime.
So small it disappears in your fov.

No comparison really.

I like them both, but being that I can only use one at a time, I'm not persuaded that I have to have them both.

What say the membership? Preferences?

Eotechs are problematic.

Get an Aimpoint.

Thanks for all of your responses.

The Eotech EXPS3-4 is their latest iteration and incorporates all of their most recent improvements and their best features. Both the Aimpoint and the Eotech have people who swear by them. I can't see a problem with either the Aimpoint or the Eotech EXPS3-4, but it's simply time to downsize.

As soon as I get some photos together, this (mounted only-never used)
ANIB Eotech EXPS3-4, AR co-witness QD mount, original case, etc. will be in the Classified BX at what I think will be an attractive price.

Personally I'm a big fan of the MRO - the extra field of view over the Aimpoint T/H series is a welcome improvement. Only real complaint I can think of is I wish the adjustment clicks were more tactile but really that's no big deal. Trijicon did some testing around the time of Eotech's woes and found that zero shift as a result of extreme temperature variations was extremely low (if you use some google-fu you can find Trijicon's letter).

The reticle and field of view on the Eotech are awesome. I know some people have had issues but mine's held up fine - I just don't let it bake in the car all day or stick it in a freezer.

Eotech also has a problem with the battery box corroding. There is a fix for it but Eotech charges for it.
