Auto-darkening helmets have become quite standard with most welders, especially as they have become quite affordable over the past few years. My review is from an automotive/fabrication perspective, but I know this helmet would be great for any type of welding.
I had been using a "cheap" lincoln auto-darkening hood while developing primarily my MIG welding skills, the helmet offered mediocre performance. The price was not much less than the hobart, but I quickly purchased it at Lowes/Home Depot.
During the past year, as I have become much more serious about welding and developing my TIG skills. I have been mentored along by a talented fabricator. During this period I have primarily used his Mountain auto-darkening hood. The Mountain offered much better auto-darkening performance, which of course allowed the user to focus on welding.
While searching for a new "professional" level helmet, similar to the Mountain I had been borrowing, I found the Hobart 770700 on Amazon for an amazing price. Both my more experienced peers/co-workers and myself have been impressed by the quality of the Hobart, the accuracy of the auto-darkening adjustability and the overall feel. I don't think I could be more happy given the price and performance. I don't like to emphasize the affect of a safety device on workmanship. However, in this situation the Hobart 770700 has offered ergonomics, auto-darkening performance and protection that has allowed me to focus on producing better welds. Given the less than $100 price of the Hobart it is a great necessity I would recommend to any welder.

I weld professionally and some hobby, thin gauge and up to 3/8 steel,occasionally aluminum and cast iron, totally 3-4 hours a week.
Tested the helmet with very low current mig welding and shade set to "9", perfect and fast darkening even with lowest current, welding poodle clear viewable, markings on material even so, with a stick electrode of 4,5 Mm, I tried the shade "13" setting, fast reaction but a little to dark, lowered to "12", and again clear sight of poodle and material markings.The grind function and the exchangeable power cell is nice extra functions for a helmet with this low price.
The head harness is easy adjustable and keep the adjustments also when moving the mask a lot up and down.
The helmet feels, once adjusted, very light and is easy to work with, was using reading glasses inside the helmet without any problems.
Bought from Amazon, fast shipping and OK packing

I've been in the Welding Industry over 40 yrs, still doing my thing, still loving this profession. I don't care to spend exorbitant amounts on my gear, like welding helmets with auto-dark features. $370.00???? Forget it!!! So, I did some exploring on Amazon, found this helmet (without all the silly flames and dragons BTW), and purchased this REASONABLY priced helmet. Since it was priced lower than my local welding supply store, I figure I'd keep it in my home shop where I needed it anyway, thinking it may not hold up to rigorous use. WRONG. I've been working the daylights out of this thing. Now, I only wish there were easy to find replacement clear cover lens. I cut larger lens down to useable size but this gets to be a nuisance. I'm getting ready to get another one of these helmets. I purchased this one in mid 2011, now in mid 2013, I've no serious complaints as it works very nicely.

Side note: I have a auto-dark helmet costing much more that must be turned on to use the auto-dark feature. Having to stop, take off my gloves to turn the hood 'on' is very annoying. THIS Hobart helmet does not need turning on!! Just put it on your head and go to work! LOVE IT!.

Now, stop looking and hit the purchase button for this helmet!

I bought this Hobart 770700 helmet for my son who frequently does home welding projects using the old style flip up/down welding mask. I knew very little about latest technology so had some reservations about this product's effectiveness. Am happy to report that my son absolutely loves the darkening feature, fit, comfort, and durability of this helmet and says it is very well worth the cost. Therefore, I can happily endorse this product to perform as advertised and of course, am very happy with the price and speed of delivery.

This is a great helmet. The only caution is that the Weld/Grind switch is counterintuitive. You'll get flashed (like both the welders in our household) if you don't actually read the instructions.

I'm quite satisfied ! The headband fits well, and is easy to adjust. It doesn't loosen during longer uses. The visibility through the lens is well beyond my expectations, and it has actually improved the quality of my welding . It also makes starting an arc much easier, and holding a fine bead easier too. Thank you for a fine product, it's well worth the price.

I'm taking an entry level welding class through the local pipe fitting union and I needed all the personal safety gear. Looking long term, I wanted a welding helmet that I can start with and last through for years to come. I didn't want a cheap $40 helmet that I will toss to the side after I became more experienced in welding and I also didn't want a very expensive helmet in case I found I am not good at welding. This Hobart is right in the middle... not too expensive and crazy cadillac and yet, not too simplistic like a training wheel.

The auto dim performs good enough. I've been flashed plenty of times and flashing is not so bad... it's like getting hit with a bright LED light in dark, which takes a few seconds to recover. I think in the next year or two I'll buy a more sensitive helmet and have this Hobart as my back up. I definitely recommend an auto dimming, even when you are starting to learn to weld like me. Having the helmet on as you're striking the electrode makes learning faster and easier. I also recommend getting a "cheater" lens or a 150x or 200x magnifier lens because you really need to see the molten puddle and how it's setting.

Good luck everyone.
