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.

Just received my order.

ordered: Oct 16
Shipped: Oct 19 (according to CCnow order tracking)
Received: Nov 6

One thing that was odd - CCnow showed a ship date of Oct 19, but the postmark on the box was Nov 2 from Cerritas, CA. I'm guessing that this company manufactures in Pakistan and bulk ships orders to California for shipping to the rest of the US.

Packaging - seems to have gotten cheaper compared to previous reviews. the glasses were wrapped in a microfibre cloth and slipped in a plastic baggie. That was then wrapped in some cotton wadding and dropped into the traditional glasses case with chinese characters printed on the top. That was slipped into a lightweight cardboard box for shipping. Honestly, I wouldn't expect any damage during transit, but the glasses case could end up bent or scratched during shipment.

Quality: Decent - there are some minor fit/finish issues. the corners have very minor gaps, the wire along the bottom (semi-rimless) isn't completely straight, lens not exactly centered in the frame (front to back). All in all for $33 I'm happy. I'll order some sunglasses this winter as well.

As for the prescription: It's pretty good. My optometrist used 1/8 (.125) increments for my Rx and Goggles4u only uses 1/4 (.25) increments, so I had to "fudge" a little. After some adjustments, my vision is pretty good, although my depth perception is completely whacked. I'll have the RX checked and make sure that it's correct, before I make any judgments.
