I have both a set of Tasco 7x50 Offshore w/compass ($175+/-), as well as a pair of the Fuji 12x35 stabilized.

I keep the Tasco's in the cockpit whenever we are out, as anyone can easily use them and I don't care too much if they get knocked around. All in all I feel they are an excellent value.

I keep the stabilized at the nav station, and are basically for my use only. My only issue with the Fuji's is that the distance between the eyepeices has to be dialed in exactly for them to be effective, and it takes a bit of tinkering to get them just right.

Surprisingly, I find the 12x35's to be brighter at night than the 7x50's but that may have to do the higher magnification factor.
