Illumination was not a "benefit"I've had this scope on my bushmaster 308 orc for 2-3 years now. The rifle's main purpose is hunting pigs so I wanted something that could get enough magnification to make ethical kill shots while also being able to turn down for use with a thermal clip on. What I've found is that:
a) the diode for the green completely died on me just after the warranty ended.
b) the red diode is always on even if it's put to "OFF" or the green setting. It's extremely faint and wouldn't have noticed it if I wasn't out in a blind when it was pitch black.
c) tying into b, the batteries would be dead the next time I picked up my rifle so I had to take the battery out or expect to change the battery every time I wanted to turn the scope on.
d) the red is too bright to use at night and halos would form in the scope even on the lowest setting
e) (Wow this is too long) The dot isn't all that bright at the highest setting for use during the day either so I'm not exactly sure when the illuminated reticle is all that useful.
The glass is pretty clear even at dusk and haven't had any issues with the seals or toughness of the optic. I like the scope but can't recommend this product specifically due to the issues I've had. Your mileage may very. I still have the scope and bought the same one without the ir and have been extremely happy with it.

Great ClarityOptics are very clear. The red illumination settings are too bright for the lowest of light settings, but the green settings continue down at lower intensities which are not too bright. I have not compared the low low light sight picture to my old Redfield Illuminator, w/50mm objective also, side by side. I am sufficiently pleased with this scope that I have ordered a 2nd one of these for a DPMS Gen 2 Hunter I am putting together.
