The big advantage of having a large view when using a welding helmet is that you can easily see what you are working on and get a clearer and crisper detail on each and every corner of your welding job.

Advantages and Disadvantages.
The delay time of 0.00004 seconds is a great thing to consider for the helmet because this makes it very safe and against flashing and similar welding accidents. If you are not content with the shades, you can easily adjust them as well depending on your work surroundings and the lighting conditions in your room or workspace.
Most people also look for the grind mode in any certain auto darkening welding helmet but couldn’t find what they are looking for. Good news: the Rhino Large View has a grind mode.
The wide viewing area, of course, is a big plus because of its ease of use and comfort for the wearer who will have to weld in various positions and must retain safety at all costs while welding. And this is why welders who often do a multitude of welding processes want a helmet with a large viewing area.
The bad side, however, is that since it is only a solar-powered helmet, it is not suitable for use in the industry since you need to charge it with sunlight and you cannot work at night with it. The helmet is alright if you often work under the sun but not when you’re often inside a cold and dark workplace.
Some users also complain that the helmet does not perfectly fit on their heads and this might pose as an uncomfortable threat. There could also be a few problems with the knobs being accidentally hit during use. The gloss inside of the helmet might glare and reflect, causing you to lose focus on your work.
The Rhino Large View ADF helmet is a great buy if you are a hobbyist who is looking for a helmet with grind mode and a very large viewing area.
