Mine all seem to work fine. It depends what you are doing and what industry. I don't weld nearly as much as I used to, but it is usually headgear (cheap) or auto-darkening lenses (expensive).

I am red-green color blind, and the newer Miller auto darkening hoods seem better. For a passive shade lens, the gold lenses work pretty well.
