I have never heard of Strike Eagle and that makes me somewhat suspect about the quality compared to EOtech.
Honestly, "looks like an EOtech" is not very good criteria for selecting an optic.

I think you are mistaken. EOtech was partnered with Bushnell to sell an early commercial version of their sight but it was designed, patented, and built by EOtech. I believe this occurred because the original sight did not yet meet mil-specs. Obviously this is longer the case and I don't believe the Bushnell
Holosight is available any more.
