1) The aluminized Mylar filter material is definitely not optical grade (as compared to the Baader Planetarium solar viewing material).
2) The sun shows as a somewhat unpleasant cold-white disc but worse yet, there is pronounced scatter around the sun's disc, as if it is being viewed through a hazy sky.
3) The frame material is very thin and allows sunlight to pass through all around the filter cells. This makes for an annoyingly bright frame that distracts from the view and makes one squint and frown while in use.
4) If you have an average size hat-size for an adult, the glasses will probably fit too snug and within a few minutes will start cutting into the contact points behind the ears. Actually, all eclipse glasses I have ever tried seem to be cut from the same template and are just as uncomfortable.
Since I'm an amateur astronomer with years of solar viewing experience, I realize that I have a higher than average expectation for this product. I do however believe that these glasses can provide a safe viewing opportunity for the passing observer.
For a better alternative: call your local welding-supply store and ask if they sell shade #15 glass welding filters (#14 is a bit too bright for viewing the sun).
Tip: Keep the envelope it comes with to protect them and store it in your file cabinet so you can find them again next time you need them.
To their credit they immediately shipped out the glasses. Lesson here is if you don't get something when you should, contact the seller and let them know instead of waiting like I did!
As for product itself, it is probably 3-star quality. But keep in mind folks, you are paying less than 0.80 cents per unit. How much optical clarity were you really expecting? Yeah, I wish the color was a little more yellow instead of completely white and it is a bit fuzzy.
I gave 5 stars to offset the low ratings from people who were simply expecting way too much and because of the good customer service.
Remember that you are looking at something 93 million miles away through a piece of plastic, not through the Hubble, so for what it is... it works nicely.
One pair I cut up and, with some cardboard and foil tape, made solar filters for my binoculars. I can now observe sunspots with the binoculars. Be sure you know what you're doing before trying that as it's an easy way to blind yourself.
