Miller Digital Elite Welding Helmets With Adjustable Modes & Auto Darkening Feature

Miller Digital Elite Series (Images courtesy Miller)

By Andrew Liszewski

Let me preface this post by admitting that I’ve never welded in my life, nor do I foresee a point where I will ever need to. In fact the only time I’ve ever seen someone welding was on American Chopper, so I’m definitely not what you’d call an expert. However, I can see the usefulness of Miller’s Digital Elite Series welding helmets/visors which feature an adjustable LCD shade (I can only assume it uses an LCD) for different jobs. For example, the Grind mode sets the shade to level #3, where as the Cutting mode will apparently self-adjust between level #5 to level #8. The visor uses 4 arc sensors and has a lens speed of 1/20,000 of a second, and is also powered by a replaceable lithium battery that’s good for about 3,000 hours.

The Classic Black version of the Digital Elite welding helmets is $359, while versions with a fancier color or design scheme like the Inferno pictured above run $389.

    Wow….what a useless review. So you've never welded nor have you seen anyone weld in person (you admit that you see it on TV once) and you state that you're “definitely not what you’d call an expert”….I wouldn't call you ANYTHING…not even a amatuer or a welding want-to-be..

    Why write a review when you have no experience, context NOR desire to weld, yet you feel you need to write about it? I know why…it's because you're a loser that likes typing about NOTHING and is so vane as to want to see your name appear beside a bunch of text that is no value to anyone.

    Well done. More useless electronic chatter within the Internet.

    Huh? This can somehow be construed as a review? While I may not be a welder, I know for a fact that some of our readers are, which is why I chose to write about it and bring it to their attention. It's not like I even say anything bad about it either. To quote Towely “I have no idea what's going on.”

    Jimbo.

    Hol.
    eee.
    GOD.

    Didn't your mom ever tell you that thing about only saying nice things? For the love of Pete! It took you several times longer to write your comment than to read the review which – if you genuinely think that Andrew's disclaimers were true- means you were reading something of no value.

    I've actually forwarded your comments to a few of my friends so that we can organize a gang headscratching.

    Oh and Liszewski…. Dude. I'm still ticky about you bagging on some of the good entries in the shirt contest so you're still on my list, but not nearly as much as this total chode.

    I don't deny that the t-shirt contest didn't exactly go down as smooth as we had hoped. But it was not something I had a hand in, and as a result I refrained from commenting on the situation whatsoever. So I'm not entirely sure where you read any comments from me bagging on any of the entries. I can assure you I do not want to incur the wrath of your headscratching posse.

    “meh” thats actually the amount of care I actually have for the tshirt thing. I just wanted to make sure I was spreading the hate.

    Still, though. You have to admit that Jimbo is a total chode
