With the first set of these I bought, I was skeptical. However, here's what happened:
My KDR went from 2.1 to 32.6 the very first day on Battlefield 3...hoorah!
Since my eyes never got tired, I stayed up for 198 hours straight...more gaming/pron time!
I wore these driving and was able to see cops 42 miles away...no tickets!
Wore them to a club and was able to see through ladies' clothing...fake tatas galore!
Used them to pick the winning powerball ticket...they penetrate scratch covers!
I hear they also make bald men grow full heads of hair, men's genetalia larger, women's genetalia tighter, your feces smell like roses, tan your skin while you wear them, make your teeth whiter, reverse aging, and make you money even while they sit on your desk! Of course, YMMV!!!
Just my experience, bought a pair for work as I'm sensitive to fluorescent lights and sit in front of the computer most of the day. Was getting bad headaches at times, those behind the eyes pounding types. I gave these a shot and, while it may be a placebo effect, it has helped significantly with my headaches.
Personally, I don't care about the gaming features, I like the look and I think the glare reduction helps significantly. They are also nice quality glasses. Worth $150? Well...not for me, but I found my pairs on the Gunnar's Outpost site (their outlet at their website) for roughly the same amount as they are selling at Woot.
I never looked into the science of these, but for those claiming a benefit, have you tried lowing the brightness + increasing dpi settings, and seeing if that helped ... before wearing the glasses?
If these glasses have a slight magnification effect, that could help eyestrain a little bit right there. And if your screen is too bright, almost any coated lens could help reduce that brightness. A lot of people keep their monitors cranked up at full blast and then wonder why they have eyestrain.
I'm not saying they can't possibly work based on other factors, but if they do anything, maybe it's simple stuff like that?
And you're basing this on what exactly? The fact that you clearly know nothing about physics or optics?
Also you wouldn't look professional sporting these at a KFC, let alone an actual office environment. But hey, what do I know? I'm just a doctor. I'm sure you guys blowing your money on this crap know more about human physiology than I do.
You are just going to exhaust yourself trying to make a point. People buy crap everyday, this is just another place for people to buy crap. Let them buy it and feel good about the crap . . . until they start feeling bad and buy another crap to make them feel good again.
