Here is what I bought
600nm 750nm Safety Glasses Red Laser Red Orange Laser Ray Eye Protection Goggles | eBay
Wanted to try out what these goggles do, and I was horribly dissapointed.

I used my 200mW 660nm Laser

The protection is just bad.

Can you post full size pictures instead of only thumbnails? Clicking on those just takes me to some free web proxy advertisement.

I use Photobucket, it's good most of the time.

Funny... My bad ebay glasses are blue, not green. The blue seems to block some of 660nm, but it really sucks too. :(

Done.

I opened a case so i can get my money back ASAP

If you can't afford Eagle Pair, these are a good option: 600nm 700nm Safety Glasses Red Laser Protection Goggle | eBay

They were recommended to me by forum member Thejoker301, apparently they block a lot of red laser light. I'll post pictures once they arrive.
Just bought them :)

Cheers,
Alex

^^^I also have those glasses, it works rather well. I once got zapped with a 300mW 650nm while wearing those, and they protected my eyes, no damage at all :)

Yes, I was busy mounting the laser when it hit me in the eye, I'm very glad that I wore them!

EDIT: 405th post!

I bought OEM Systems and Survival Laser Eagle Pair glasses for my blue/green protection right out of the gate when I got into the hobby. I was so impressed with the price/performance value of the Eagle Pair that I went back and ordered a pair for the orange/red wavelengths from Survival Laser USA. I can vouch those are a great value.

Those pictures are exactly why I now only buy glasses from OEM Laser Systems. Yes you'll pay $100 or more but when a thin piece of plastic is all that lies between your eyes and a 3w 445nm laser is cheaping out on glasses really worth it? I do have a pair of Eagle Pair glasses that I used until I got a pair from OEM that covered my reds and IR. They seemed to work fine and I'd recommend them as a good budget brand if you can't afford to go with a company like OEM.
