    Alright already.... I changed my order to the "digital" as it hadn't shipped yet. I am sure it will be fine either way but now I got the cream of the crop.

    Smile I have a Miller Elite

    I have a Miller Elite with the knobs you turn. I guess that is non-digital. Unless something is wrong, I think mine stays "ready" all the time. I set at 10, back sensitivity to light conditions . . . As soon as I strike an arc I go dark . . . Lay it down for an hour or so, put it on, strike an arc, it goes dark . . Am I supposed to be turning it on or readying it?

    Seems to work perfectly . . . .

    Your's is the the older Elite. The new digital you have to turn on after 15min. I wish the digital was auto on.

    Something might be wrong with mine or I may have to change the sensitivity.
    Sometimes it "auto" on's and sometimes not.
    I usuall strike an ark or two and if it doesn't darken I push the reset button and it does.
    I went ahead and ordered a digital elite for the house yesterday morn. and the regular elite is still under warranty so I may send it back if the sensitivity thing doesn't work.

    no sensitivity setting should stop it from darkening when exposed to an arc! I might try a new battery if i were you.

    Sorry to say my elite went flying across the shop when it wouldnt darken while I was welding a rollcage that was in a tight spot no matter the sensitivity. This had happen more than once and I just had enough. I went with the 4 sensors cause I had had trouble with other helmets with anything less.
    It held up though and now belongs to a good friend of mine, it was a great gift. I am now back to the oldskool $30 huntsman. Im not going to waste another $300+ for the digital. Its good to hear everyone else is happy with thiers.

    The new fix shade MP-10 would be a great option for you. It is the same hood and headgear as the Elite's just a fix shade 10 or 11 or 12.4x4 window. Cheap too $33.47 bucks onEbay plus shipping (weldfabulous). Think I'm going to get one this week. Not sure if I'll get the fire or the pain black though.

    for 33 bucks you should buy one to throw next time an auto dark gives you a problem!! much cheaper and just as satisfying.

    This I know thats why it was a gift and I went back to the $33 helmet which is always dark so I shouldnt have a problem. BTW it held up nice, worked like nothing ever happened which does say something about the durability of it, just not my cup of tea .
