Iíd say the image quality is 10-15%ish better on the halo. Iím happy with the XG50 and look forward to a hopeful image update soon.
Likes on the pulsar are
-Built in recording
-being able to swap the batteries while keeping the scope running
-I like the reticle options much more on the pulsar, especially being able to change the actual reticle color
-Iím a big fan of the sepia color palette now
-Image quality is fantastic and the 3x zoom is the PERFECT sweet spot for me

Dislikes on the XG50:
-The battery life sucks
-I run it on semi auto Nuc and it seems like Iím having to Nuc it pretty dang often compared to the Halo
-Iíve always liked killing on black hot.....but the image quality is the worst on black hot.. everything looks like blobs and thereís not much detail
Very fair review and I've been saying the XG50 has 10-15% less image quality than the Halo LR since the very first night I took it hunting back in the summer. I'm glad to hear the same thing from other unbiased end users. Every reasonable person I've talked to who has experience with both agrees.

Great review! I really like the XG, but I before I need to buy my 2nd thermal something else will come out.

I love my reap. Just wish it had onboard recording and 3x zoom. 2.5x is just not enough initial zoom for me

I looked through a Pulsar Thermal the other night, and, though the sensor was good, one of the higher resolution ones, the optics were not with poor edge clarity and a rounded field. Now, I don't know what model it was, but the guy bought it within the last year.

Sorry, I'm confused, did you look through multiple scopes or just one? You said the Pulsar was good but then said something else wasn't good. I know you said you don't know what model but without that info we can't really comment on what you were looking at. If you can find out the exact model it would be helpful.
