I got this hood for christmas last year, and i've built a few projects with it, among random fab work. im very happy with it, super light, solid heavy duty headgear, decent viewing window and responsive darkening. it has a shade control, sensitivity control and a delay for welding mesh or spot welding. i have used it with flux core welding, stick welding, oxy-actelene welding/brazing and cutting. also use it with my angle grinder sometimes. i wish it had a grind mode, because it will sometimes darken while grinding, but not a big deal. you CAN get different filters, as well as change the clear lenses. highly reccomend it. here is the helmet seen at TSC- http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/hobart-variable-shade-auto-darkening-welding-helmet-black
i see the updated price is $130. when i got mine it was about 80, so i'd wait for it to come on sale.
here is a few pics of me welding with it.

I bought one very similar from tsc except mine has grind mode. Very nice helmet ive used it for mig, flux core , and stick welding used it to cut with torches and grind also. My only comlaint is the way the bottom of the helmet comes out because ive caught the bottom of it before with the electrode holder while stick welding.
