Just email Paul P. @ HTP and he will set you up with whatever you need. I just email him, he sends me a quote, and then an invoice through paypal when everything is correct. Couldn't be any easier. I too am buying a few extra of everything because I hate inflation. Many things just went up in price, including stuff in the HTP Ebay store.

My main Autodark is a Miller Big Window Elite... that I bought new 8 or 10 years back..
Other than needing batteries every few years.. absolutely no issues...
I do a lot of low amperage inverter TIG (Dynasty)..and the multiple sensors and sensitivity have been a real boon on the low end where other helmets tend to flash...
For instance... I have a NexGen that is impossible on the low end.......
The more you know, The better you know, How little you know......
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten”
Buy the best tools you can afford.. Learn to use them to the best of your ability.. and take care of them...
My Blue Stuff:
Dynasty 350DX Tigrunner
Millermatic 350P w/25ft Alumapro & 30A
TONS of Non-Blue Equip, plus CNC Mill, Lathes & a Plasmacam..

Well, I'm getting info from threads like this on a few discussion forums, and I've decided against the MDE (because it's too much of a PITA), and the CSV (because it's a store brand, and it seems gimmicky). If I was getting a $300 helmet, it'd be an Optrel or a Speedglas, but as good as I believe they are, I just can't rationalize that expense as a hobbyist welder, even though the cost isn't a problem.
So I'm left with the Hobart Impact, Jackson Nitro or Insight, or Speedglas 100V.Walk softly & carry a BIG SIX ! ! !

I ordered a Hobart impact last night through Amazon. Cyberweld was a little cheaper, but we do a lot of business on Amazon, so it was just easier. I'll try to remember to post my opinion when I try it out.
