There appears to be an error in the Groupon description for Paralex which specifies "wide-fit" for Paralex. This is apparently incorrect, as both the Amazon page and Gunnar's own info says the Paralex is a narrower design for smaller faces.
I was contemplating this deal before, I think it has come up before in the past but someone mentioned Flux and it is a pretty good free alternative. Only con I see with Flux is the tint is not applied to your games when your actually playing I think, I am not 100% on that. But everything else to web browsing, watching videos etc, Flux is doing its thing. Only reason why I am contemplating picking on up is the fact that the glasses will tint everything including the game your playing. Real question is which is the better options of the two available?
For the price, and for anyone who hasn't actually tried these yet, this is one of the few gimmicky-looking things that I would say are legit. I find myself using them every time I look at a monitor because of the added vibrancy and clarity they offer. They just work really well to enhance a picture and almost completely reduce eyestrain, more so than I think anyone would initially think.
They don't really explain this well, but the two categories they have, which I think are "Computer Monitor" and "Gamer", actually have a difference. For instance, the "RPG" model I first got, which is a "Gamer" model, has a stronger overall effect (more magnification, slightly-darker tint, and also tend to have a neat pseudo-3D effect with anything on a monitor--works well with movies, too) than the "Emissary" ones, which had noticeably less effect, comparatively.
I was actually very pleasantly surprised with the effects, especially the unintended ones, as they really do work to A) reduce eyestrain, B) "warm" the colors a bit, and C) generally make stuff clearer and prettier to look at, which is why they also work with Blu-rays, in my experience. I was skeptical and mostly got them for eyestrain, but the overall enhancement was actually very pleasant.
I totally understand skepticism here, but I really was very impressed. The Amazon reviews help give more information, but they are more capable than one would think to give credit.
Some people complain that the stronger lenses make them feel sick, but I never had this issue. Though I doubt the non-gamer lenses would make anyone dizzy, as they have a more subtle magnification and color-warming effect.
