About Easy View XT
Easy View XT Glare Blocker was marketed in 2013 as Easy View HD. At some point in 2014 the product was rebranded “XT” instead of “HD.” The official website for the original product was easyviewhd.com, which was registered on July 11, 2013. This now forwards to easyviewxt.com, which was registered in March 2014.
Here is a screen shot of the 2014 XT website:

- Address: Easy View HD, P.O. Box 210827, Milwaukee, WI 53221
- M-F 8am to 5pm CT
How much does Easy View XT cost?
Easy View XT costs $10 plus $7.95 processing for a total of $17.95. You get a second set for an additional $7.95, for a grand total of $25.90. Note that you cannot opt out of this second “free” set, so expect to pay $25.90 when ordering.
You may want to take extra care in the ordering process. There is no confirmation screen to double-check your order. Some customers have found the ordering process confusing, and were surprised to see $30+ shipping when placing an order.

Our Easy View XT Review
Easy View XT is merely a tinted piece of transparent plastic with two bands for attaching to your car’s visor. And while the materials and design appear cheap, the product does moderately reduce glare.
Our original review of this product was when it was known as “Easy View HD” and at the time it included a “high density sun diffuser” – which we found to be more useful than the Easy View HD. That item attached to the Easy View HD and could be slid left to right. The diffuser provided additional glare reduction when the sun is shining directly in your eyes. It does not appear that the sun diffuser is now offered with the re-branded XT product.
The visuals in the television commercials show a more dramatic change than we experienced, but overall the product does work to reduce glare.
Easy View XT vs Sunglasses
Perhaps the most obvious question is whether or not Easy View XT is better than simply wearing a pair of sunglasses. Keep in mind that some sunglasses reduce glare better than others. Sunglasses are also not designed for nighttime use. For these reasons, Easy View XT does hold a slight edge over sunglasses. If you have a pair of decent sunglasses, Easy View XT will probably not be very useful when driving during the day.
Easy View XT does work, although it’s difficult to justify paying $26 for two pieces of plastic attached to elastic bands. If you find yourself regularly dealing with glare while driving, Easy View XT may be worth a try. The “high density sun diffuser” which was originally sold with the product was a valuable addition which appears to be no longer available.
