Default Acceptable safety goggles?

Just curious if anyone has an opinion as to the effectiveness of these laser goggles. I can't afford to spend a lot of money on laser goggles and I was hoping these would suffice for very brief usage. They are claimed to be OD5 and I have a "1W" Arctic.

Opinions please?

So you're wanting these goggles for your Arctic Spyder? If I was dealing with a 1W laser, I'd get an Eagle Pair from HERE.

If you really can't afford them, you can buy a tested Uvex pair: Cheap Safety Goggles Destructive Test: Uvex S0360X Ultra-spec 2000

I saw a thread about those Uvex goggles and then I couldn't find it again. Thanks for posting that link, I went ahead and bought a couple pairs. I'm in between paychecks and have a nice bill coming out of my next one so the expensive brands weren't really an option right now. Something is better than nothing, right?

Those look exactly the same as my HDE glasses I got on Amazon:
HDE® Laser Eye Protection Safety Glasses Goggles for Green Blue Lasers W/ Free Hard Case - Amazon.com
And I can tell you they work just fine. Go ahead and get some cheap glasses if that's all you can afford, but later you should take Guns advice and get the Eagle Pair. You need more than one anyway so you can have some good ones for yourself and some to hand to a friend when you want to share your laser with someone.

Pi,
How can you say those glasses work when according to your sig, you dont own a single laser in the wavelength those glasses are supposed to cover? If you do own a laser, then please update your signature. it gives more credibility to your posts if people can connect two and two together

Livinloud you are quite right, I should have given a more detailed reply. My own experience with these HDE glasses was only a few times with a 532nm green, I don't know how powerful it was but you could easily see the beam in a dimly lit room and I can tell you these block almost all visible green light but I should have also stated that they don't block any IR. They are however known to be very effective for 445nm blue and I intend to use them as my safety glasses for blue in the near future (will be doing a build soon). Please take the time to view the testing done by mhemling33 here:
HDE Red-J74 405-532nm Safety Glasses (back to $7.95) w/ case & Free Shipping US
Where these glasses withstand 2800+mw of 445nm with a 0mw reading on his laserbee and he did this multiple times with the same results. I apologize for not stating all this the first time and its good that you don't just take someones word for it without looking into it further, especially where safety is concerned.

Alan
