I have owned a pair of Gunnars (this model actually), and I will be picking up another pair today.

Pro
They really do reduce eye strain significantly. They also bend flat images into a curved one that causes 100% of your field of view to be in focus. Picture your monitor as a horizontal line and you the viewer as a point. If you draw lines from the point to anywhere on the horizontal line, the lines will be different lengths so you can't focus on everything at once. What the glasses do is curve your monitor concavely so that the entire image is equidistant from you the viewer so that the entire image will be in focus at every point. It's a strange effect at first, but you will get used to it.

Con
The micro-environment mumbo jumbo that "reduces eye dryness" is BS. They also scratch and smudge very easily. You will need a case for them. The earpieces can be painful and fatiguing when used with headphones. After one year of use, the plastic nose pieces have shrunk (possibly due to temperature or humidity changes), and i had to put them back in manually and crimp the metal edges tighter around them.

I still use mine everyday. Looking at a computer now without them actually makes me feel dizzy and sick. So physical addiction could occur <---not a joke.

for anyone having trouble finding DA2 for ps3... it was in the cheapo (under $20) ps3 game section at the store i went to. the 360 version was filed normally.

also, the store had a few collectors editions (max payne 3, prototype 2, uncharted 3, batman arkham city and soul calibur 5) all for 40% off, so you might be able to use the SC5 coupon along with the 40% off to get the CE edition for $16. i dunno.
