    This may or may not be a stupid question, but being such an expensive piece of equipment I just have to ask.

    Does brand matter when buying NODs?

    If your spending under 4grand might as well buy nightowl.. just my two cents as I'm in the same boat as you guys with no military background. From what I've read got to be a Gen 4 are you getting stroked by the technology fairies. Don't even get me started on the new choice of thermals.
    From example video shown online kind of looks like they're more would be the way you'd want to go.

    Well I'm thinking either a pvs14 or pvs15 or dual pvs14. Better question would be what brands to stay away from.

    If you got questions, feel free to post up on here. Also google "night vision FAQ" that should help.

    I just want to know if there's a certain brand to stay away from because they are all within the same price range. I don't want to make a $3k+ mistake...

    Interested in this topic also. From what I have read any new 10 year warranty 3rd Genertation is GTG.

    Some Photonis may be different enough to be a problem - I would avoid Photonis.
    Harris Pinnacle and NVD, TNVC L3 filmless are US made. Green is GTG, but having just looked through an L3 white phosphor filmless - sure is sweet.
