Definitely. The only weapon-mounted night-vision or thermal device I have is a sightmark wraith, which was only $499 new two years ago and has dropped even more since then. And it's better by far than the twice-as-expensive "gen 2+" night vision monocular I bought 15 years ago. Those in the video look even better, but I'm happy with where I am currently. I'm not in battle, and mine is really just for armadillos & coyotes. It 'could' be pressed into defensive use, but not real likely in my situation.and they will continue to get cheaper and more prevalent.
