Pros: They actually work. They have a small magnification and block out a lot of the white light that causes my eyes to fatigue.
Cons: The construction materials seem flimsy, but what can you expect with a "one size fits all" product line?
Other Thoughts: It takes several days of wearing the glasses for multiple hours to get used to the magnification. While they train your eyes you may experience headaches like I did. They go away after your eyes get used to the glasses.

Good Lenses, Bad Frames
Pros: The lenses, from the best I can tell, do exactly as advertised. They reduced eye strain, and enhanced overall gaming experience. Other reviews and videos will cover this in great depth; moreso than what I am going to go into.
Cons: The frames. The frames are the cheapest and worst frames I have ever seen on any pair of glasses anywhere ever, and I am extremely disappointed by this fact. Plastic 3D glasses that movie theatres hand out for 3D movies are better constructed. I have bought cheap glasses for a dollar in 3rd world countries that were better constructed. (-1 eggs for lack of quality & -1 more egg for the severity of the lack of quality.)
Other Thoughts: I read reviews before I bought, and in retrospect most were really accurate, both the good and bad ones.

Wanted it to help but...
Pros: Lightweight, stylish, comfortable for a large sized head. Lens tint was very nice and appealing for contrast of colors. Glass quality is excellent. Frames are comfortable all around.
Cons: Hurt my eyes after 2 hours of use. I thought maybe I needed to get used to it but I can't endure another hour of the feeling like I had someone squeezing my eyeball. It's taken a couple of hours to allow my eyes to go back to a normal feeling and the discomfort to go away. I think it had everything to do with the ever-so-slight magnification they have in the lens. Felt like reading glasses. If they didn't have this magnification, I would be thrilled to try them again.
Other Thoughts: I have 20/20 vision and I've read other reviews where 20/20 users had no problems. I also know that my eyes didn't hurt due to prolonged computer viewing without these glasses where others who got headaches and eye fatigue were saying how much better they felt after using Gunnars. So I imagine if you are having eye fatigue you will notice an improvement. If you don't have any problems you may be just like me and not be able to use them.
