Blinded By The Sunlight And My Thoughts On The HD Vision VisorPosted: June 8, 2014
I saw an infomercial for this HD Vision Visor in the middle of the night one night last week. It intrigued me, but I didn’t hurry to the phone to be one of the first 15 callers; instead, I went back to playing Words With Friends. Today I saw this product on the shelf at Walgreens for $14.99, so I thought I’d give it a try.
It’s a clip on visor with 2 shields – one for daytime use and one for nighttime use.
This is what it looks like out of the box:
It’s simple to install. It just clips right on to the visor in your car. As such:
There are two plastic shields. The orange-ish one is for daytime use. The yellow-ish one is for night time use. Both of them have thin plastic protective coverings on both sides – you need to peel it off of both sides or using the visors will cause you to get a killer headache from driving while looking through plastic covered plastic. Trust me.
So, here is a “before” picture:
And, here is the same picture with the daytime visor down:
Pretty nifty, right?
So, I turned the car around and was now facing into the sun. Before:
So here are my thoughts on this HD Vision Visor. It’s a great concept. It really is. However, seeing as it is supposed to ease the glare from the sun while driving, I found that the biggest flaw is that when I was facing direct sunlight, the visor reflected my image right back at me and I found it very distracting.
Tomorrow I will be returning the HD Vision Visor for a refund. I really wanted this to work, but the reflection problems were bigger than the glare that it reduced. I think I’ll stick with my sunglasses.
