Things I liked: good clear optics
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: good scope you won't be sorry you bought it great scope for a .270 too
Things I liked: The CenterPoint 3-9x40 AO strikes me as a product made to meet a price point rather than meet certain performance standards. In researching this review, I found it for sale from $50 to $150. That's an oddly wide price range, and I think you can do better than the CenterPoint at the upper end of that range (more about that later).
Things I would have changed: Whether or not you like this scope may be based on how much you paid for it. If price was your main concern and you are just doing back-yard plinking, you may be satisfied with the CenterPoint. At under, say, $70 it gets the job done. If you are willing to spend more than $70 for this scope, I think you can do better. The scope seems serviceable enough for casual shooting. The optics are not as clear as I would like, but they do transmit a decent image as long as there is enough ambient light. In dim light the image disappears, and the lit reticle did not seem to help. I liked the mil-dot reticle and the caps on the windage and elevation adjustments. I did not try water or shock tests.
What others should know: For about twice the CeterPoint's lowest price (but still within its price range), I much prefer the UTG/Leapers 3-12x44AO Accushot SWAT scope. (Check out my review.)
Things I liked: perfect for hunting and my marauder!
