Very nice entry level scope for a good price. 7X magnification is probably the most you can get out of 160x120 resolution, I doubt you gonna use the 2x digital zoom much, but even with these default specs Im able to detect objects 300-500 yards away. Now, you may not be able to identify whether it is a cow or a hog at 500 yards, but you can definitely do it at 200-250 yards. If you are looking for longer viewing distances and good resolution you definitely need more than 160x120, but if you are hunting hogs once in a while at reasonable distances just like me, I think this is perfect for you.
