What experts liked
The Edge Super 1+ has an integrated Illuminator that has an adjustable brightness setting. It has a surprisingly great battery life and only requires 2 x AAA batteries. You can expect 50 hours worth of viewing when you are not using the IR. The Illuminator is what ultimately lets you see in complete darkness. The Edge GS Super 1+ Is sold with an ergonomic head piece which allows you to use the goggles hand free.

Budget models do not get much better than the Pulsar Edge Gs Super 1, which have an easy to use IR power adjustment wheel and a wide-angle lens for superior control and field of view. They are priced for the home user, but good enough for tactical use.

The Pulsar Edge GS Super 1+ is noteworthy for its consistent resolution that provides a good ratio between the edge resolution and center resolution. It has a wide-angled built-in IR illuminator with power-adjustment functionality that you can gradually adjust.
- Improb
The model uses ultra-durable and ergonomic housing. Being durable should make it possible to use the model outdoors without much problems. It will also easily work great in the extreme environments giving you the visibility that you need.

The Pulsar Edge GS Super 1+ is an excellent, yet affordable, night vision goggle. It can be used as a standalone device or you can use it with a head-mount to free your hands while using it.

What experts didn't like
Some parts of these goggles might feel flimsy, especially when you take into account the price. But the money goes into more powerful tech within the casing.

Some users have complained of the headgear being too tight. It takes some time for it to cool off after use.
