Does Easy View Really Work?


Does Easy View workEasy View HD is a sun visor that extends your normal visor, but is transparent and tinted so that you can see through it and see the road without the glare. Of course it looks like it works, but the real question is how does it perform when you get it set up in your car.

Overview
It’s true that morning and evening rush hour can be some of the worst times to drive in terms of the sun being out. You end up with the rising sun in your face in the morning, and the setting sun at night. Even during midday the glare can be so bad that you aren’t able to keep your eyes on the road in front of you. That’s a serious breach to safe driving and is something that needs to be solved.

The Claim
The makers of Easy View say that you don’t need any tools to install this, and it comes fully assembled so you just stick it in place. They say it provides anti-glare benefits, sort of like a pair of sunglasses but without having to wear them while driving. They say it also comes with a high density attachment that you slide along it to block the sun specifically so you don’t have it right in your line of sight.

The Hype
This has its own mini infomercial that shows how it works and shows the problem of trying to drive with the sun in your face. It’s a legitimate problem that is likely the cause of several accidents each year, and at the very least it can be a harrowing experience to drive with limited visibility, or with your eyes not looking straight ahead to see what’s coming.

The Cost
There is an original price listed at $10 but you have to factor in two $8 shipping charges so the total comes to $26. We were unable to locate a product that is just like this one, but one competing product would be a pair of sunglasses, and it’s hard to find a decent pair of those for $26. That make the claim that this is a $30 value that you’re getting for $10 but it’s clear after reading the offer details that the total price is pretty close to the stated value. And of course it’s not clear on how they came up with a value of $30 for a few pieces of plastic essentially.

The Commitment
All that’s needed on your part is to put this on your visor and use it when the sun is in your face. You can slide the sun diffuser as the sun moves or as the road turns so that you’ve got it in place just right and can drive uninhibited by all of that brightness. Compared to using the standard visor that comes in your car this would be a better choice, as it doesn’t block your view but is just as easy to use. It’s also just as easy as putting on a pair of sunglasses.

Evaluation
The concept behind Easy View is a pretty good one, and it does make the point that conventional visors block your view and therefore aren’t very good at the job they’re intended for. But they make a great place to attach these to, and they’ve done a good job on the design, even including the dense slider that blocks out the sun specifically for those times when you’re driving right into it.

If you can relate to the people in the TV ad, having to suffer through a sun drenched commute each day, you will most definitely like having these in your car. It beats wearing sunglasses each day, especially if you have to drive a while and end up with marks on your marks on your nose where the glasses rest. It’s also nice not to mess up your hair with sunglasses if you can help it. This would also be great for long road trips so that you know you’ll be covered no matter what sort of conditions you’re faced with.

Final Easy View HD Review

Easy View is a good idea, and at $13 apiece you can put one of these in two cars or have one car with one on each visor. Maybe one day cars will come standard with something like this, so that the sun visors can actually do the job they’re meant to do without blocking your view. One caveat: if you return these you’ll only receive back the $10 listed price of the item and be out the $16 in shipping, plus have to pay return costs.

Our Recommendation
This would be good to get if you don’t like wearing sunglasses, and you have a sunny commute each day. It frees you from having to stare into the sun, and sometimes it can be so bright that sunglasses don’t even do the trick on their own.

What do you think? Does Easy View work or not?

The pricing is deceptive. They’re $10 each plus $7.95 shipping and handling. In the ‘buy one get one free’ deal, you do only pay for one unit, but you pay two shipping and handling charges. The total bill comes to $25.90.

BEING A SMALL SHORT WOMAN EVEN WITH SUNGLASSES AND USING THE VISOR DOESNT KEEP OUT THE SUN GLARE…SO I THINK THIS WOULD BE WORTH A TRY TO SEE IF IT DOES WORK…AND ITS NOT GOING TO BREAK THE BANK!

Don’t waste your money. They’re worthless. They’re also way overpriced. You can find similar products in local automotive stores for much less and without the exorbitant shipping fees. And you can return it when you see they’re as worthless as these.

BEWARE THE HIDDEN PRICE.
You think you are checking buy one, check it closly they are quantity of SETS.
They get you thinking you are buying one with one free, actually you get billed twice per quatity of one you order as there are two per set and its actually $20 plus $16 for shipping.
They do not give you any kind of details of all you order. They just dump you from there to thank you for your order.
Tricky advertising and website presentation.

A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY! These things are cheaply made. There is nothing “HD” about them. They are nothing more than cheap tinted pieces of plastic. Both visors I received had areas about 1/3 the size of the visor that were so deformed I couldn’t even see through them. Ironically, I was able to see better without the visors than with them. I don’t know how they compare to other similar products. But, even though I don’t normally where sunglasses, I am now looking for a quality pair of sunglasses just to have handy for when the sun and glare is abnormally harsh. I didn’t even send these back. They both went into the trash!

The easy view hd web. site is deceptive and does not clearly tell the customer all of the needed information as you order. They do have a location to cancel the order at any point of the process. When I printed the order I found that it had ballooned from Ten dollars to $71.80. I tried to call and cancel the order within minutes and could not get through on the phone. I called discover card and made a complaint. The next day I called easy view again and was connected after 15 minutes on hold. The operator did not have the path on her computer program to cancel the product. I told her to note my disgust on the easy view system. She told me the product was shipped and I could not cancel the order. All of the easy view web. site and contact areas with the customer are very unfriendly customer contacts by the company. I would not advise anyone to order any of their products or Fox News should not allow them the advertise on their network.

The visor is not clear. It looks like the heat from the press got to it.

I ordered and my credit card was charged but no product. When I tried to check the status of the order, it could not find a record of the order number. When I tried the tracking number for Fedex, they could not find a record of the tracking number. When I called the customer service, I was on hold for over 15 minutes and finally gave up. I did leave a phone number for them to call me, but surprise surprise, no return call.
Bunch of crooks.

DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! Hidden shipping and handling costs. They sell you one for $10.00 and give you the other one free…..REALLY! It ended up costing me over $25.00, plus the product is a piece of crap! It’s just a piece of tinted plastic that you can’t even see clearly through so you can’t possibly drive with this. It’s not even worth the $10.00….more like a buck. Ended up throwing it away.

Ordering this product is an exercise in being RIPPED OFF! I ordered two sets – so, what should have been a $20 order with maybe a few bucks for shipping/handling became a $51.80 order! There is no place on the website to cancel the order. No one answers the telephone numbers (one on the website and one in the email order confirmation). After about 15 minutes of being on hold, I just hung up. I alerted my credit card company to the fraud. I have tried every way possible to cancel this order – from the first minute I got the confirmation and saw the excessive charge.

ORDERING THIS PRODUCT IS A SCAM – DO NOT DO IT!! I wish I had read these reviews prior to being scammed.

This product is very dangerous!! It distorts your view. I could not judge distances. Beware!!!

I, too, was extremely disappointed with the distortion on these extended visors. Everything in the distance is fuzzy and, to me, dangerous to use. I’ll continue using my Foster Grant polarized glasses that are way better than these EZ View things. The shipping was way too much, $15.90, and is non-refundable, the postage to return via USPS will be more than they are worth so think I’ll just donate them and write them off.

I recently bought this visor through a store that sells produces from TV. It cost me $9.99 plus tax. Since I’m only five foot tall I was happy to see this. Even with my car visor down the sun shines under my visor. I attached this easily to my car visor but when I tried to use it it actually distorted my vision. Also, the added piece that is supposed to move…doesn’t. I’m afraid if I push it to much the visor will break. If I pull down my car visor then pull down the Easy View to a certain angle it blocks the sun so I don’t have to look through it. Even at night with on coming traffic lights my vision is distorted.

I checked this out too and was not impressed. Especially with the final price I was paying. I did try this new product called “The SunPatch.” Works great and is a lot better. http://www.thesunpatch.com You can move it much more easier. I’m trying to spread the word on how good the product is.

I purchased this product and am satisfied with it… however I only wanted one.. I am a widow… they automatically sent me two which meant extra shipping charges.. now they are saying I ordered yet another set and am sending another.. AND have taken the money out of my checking account already.. I also received an email today saying that my order for MR. Lid is on backorder. I have never ordered such a thing. I did call them and tell them about this and was told to disregard this email. No more money had better come out of my account for this site. My bank has already been notified. What a scam
