Forum Archive

You're at the forum archive. The forums were taken down years ago due to some unfortunate astroturfing attempts by a couple retailers. At the time, I was very concerned about exposing readers to a bunch of input-that-might-be-fake, or creating a situation where the well-behaved retailers were at a disadvantage.

However, because a number of readers had posted helpful comments & reviews, and I didn't want to see it all vanish into oblivion permanently, I kept a backup around. What you're seeing now is that backup (almost 7 years old now - don't ask how I managed to get it running again...). Things are a bit scattered, and you can't post anything new (the buttons have all been disabled), but the original content is here if you're interested.

Out of all the retailers reviewed in this site, this is the only retailer that offers this feature. Supposely, this blocks ELF/VLF radiation, is this any good for my eyes? Has anyone ordered a pair with this coating? Or is this just a way to rake in more money?

Yes they do work but they are only useful if you spend a lot of time in front of a Normal CRT computer Monitor or close to a TV. If you have a LCD Monitor it is a waste of time adding this extra coating as LCD Monitors put out very little Radiation. I have only found two internet sites that offer this coating and none of my local optometrists offer this coating. Normally if you can find a Optometrist/Store that offers this coating you would be looking at $100-$300 extra, so O4L have a good deal at only $29. Basically being close to a CRT Monitor exposes your eyes to a lot of Radiation which can lead to eyesight problems. Most people buy a anti-glare and anti radiation screen to put on front of there monitor to stop the harmful radiation and the glare. They are $5 each in NZ.
