I have a 1w (probably not that powerful) from Tmart....This one

and this 1w blue coming soon...here

I have a pair of decent cheap red goggles now but want to upgrade....are these OEM Laser goggles that much better than the Eagle Pair? these

The difference between the OEM and Eagle pair, or any other cheaper goggles is certification.

OEM goggles are certified, meaning guaranteed to perform as rated. Eagle Pair are not.

So far no one has had any problems with eagle pair, but that doesn't mean there won't be a first time.

This one has 75% light transmission Thorlabs

Does that mean I could have protection and see the laser beam too?

Is a higher OD# better?

Those do not look like they would block any of the reds, greens, or blues. Higher OD is better.
