In the price point it's hard to beat a Vortex with the lifetime warranty.
The vortex dot has a low refresh rate, when I’m planning while looking through it I can see the dot flash.

I have a couple Holosun and now the Sig Romeo (on sale for around $120), no issues with any of them yet. I purchased all 4 for the price of one Aimpoint T-1. I have 7-8 Aimpoints on different rifles, from the shooter’s view the dots and glass are comparable enough.

One of the guys I shoot with bought a Holosun a few weeks ago. Shot it last week with us and this week the battery was dead so low setting he got two weeks out of a battery. Has already turned off on him once battery was replaced. He was saying something about the batteries not being able to handle recoil, first I ever heard of that crap.
Have several years on my holosun Red dot without ever having that or any issue. I’m not gentle with them either.

You like the Romeo any bettter? Been looking at that one now since they do a generous Mil/LE discount.

I bought the new Holographic sight with green reticle,its like a smaller Eotech,built like a tank.
Reticle doesnt wash out in sunlight,no battery issues and holds zero ok so far.
The green circle dot reticle is solid and not pixilated like the Eotechs is.

Been running 2 of the Holosuns pretty hard over the summer and so far have found no real issues.

The Sig Romeo5, for a mid level red dot optic is a very good value.

Aaron did manage to break the lens but it still functioned.

I have 3 Holosun optics. Favorite is the version with the Primary Arms ACSS reticle. No issues so far.

I have the he503 solar red dot with the circle and I love it. I like the auto brightness and auto on/off feature it has.
