TRUGLO Rite-Site XS Bow Sight
Not a bad sight, but get the 5-pin if you can afford the extra cost
The good: Durable construction, level, visible pins, accurate. The bad: if you're left handed, it is impossible to see the windage adjustment lines. It uses different size wrenches to install and adjust, which is a pet peeve of mine when it comes to sights. I wish it had a little longer adjustment bars. The five pin not only gives you extra pins which means shooting a larger variety of distances without estimation, but the pin visibility is even better due to how it lets light in. Still, if you need a sight under $30, this is the one to get.

Bought this product at the end of Massachusetts Deer season and had two day's left in the season...Thinking I wouldn't get back out again for the year I purchased this to replace an older box style sight with no LED. I couldn't be more happy with the decision to change. First thing is the brightness is fantastic in low light situations. Though turning the LED up to high does obstruct the distant visibility of your target I find if I set it on a low setting that issue is not a factor. I was having trouble with low light situations during the season and cause I got some extra time on the last two day's of the season I got a chance to go out and get some time in with it. Had a 4 point I had missed earlier in the year come by about 5 minutes before closing hour very little light at this point and got the pins on him. Had a wonderful bright red pin glowing right on his shoulder but he never came into range. That being said I had no issues seeing him or my pins due to the LED set to half light. Just wish he had gotten a little closer and this story may have been a bit different.
The one issue I do have with the LED itself nothing so far has been an issue with the sight itself was that it seems to turn on erratically and not on a dimmer like the turn switch seems to supposedly be. Not a big issue but I can see it burning battery if your not paying attention to it when stored. Other then that the pin fibers are on a solid backing and have little chance of breaking unlike my last sight with fibers just free floating and warping from the sun. Overall great bow sight for the money and I am completely satisfied with the product.

Quality Bow Sight for Reasonable Price
You don't have to buy expensive equipment to own quality gear that performs exceptionally. This no frills bow sight performs as well or better than many of the high-end sights. Adjustments are made easily, and don't creep after repeated shots. The pins are bright without a lot of extra fiber wire. And while the adjustable sight light leaves something to be desired (i.e., the rheostat design isn't intuitive and changing batteries is cumbersome), it does assist greatly in low-light shooting situations.

I did not have this product long enough to make a good evaluation. this product in my opinion was built ok. The one major downside to this product is the adjustments on the sight. I tried to adjust the sight one time and the screw stripped out. This could be a manufacturer default I am not really sure.

It attaches on a bow. I really like it! It gives me a straight line to to look at to make sure its level before I aim and shoot.It also lights up and its just enough for me to see.I dont have no bad things to say about it.I would buy more!

Decent sight for cheap.
Not the best sight out there, not the worst by far. Inexpensive, offers fair adjustability, the pins are bright in normal lighting conditions, and it includes a seperate light for low light conditions, to keep the pins highly visible as well as the level. Would definitely buy it again.

The light is the thing!
Needed the light on the pins for the 1/2 hour before sunrise and after sunset. Works well. It also passed the dropped test as I was sighting in(dropped the bow on a concrete patio).
