I got one of those cheap auto darkening one, but I only used it for the welding classes.
I couldnt get used to the regular fixed shade one I had before that, when I tried nodding my head to flip down the shield, my hands moved so I was off the mark.
The only thing I didnt like with the auto dark one was when I was looking up into the lights at the school, it would trigger the darkening before I was ready.

Im not a expert in any way, shape or form...but if you arent going to be doing more than a little welding every once in a while, I wouldnt go spending several hundred bucks. But if its going to be a job...i wouldnt skimp
