Has anyone use a Contrast Viewing Glass?

I was reading the book , Set Lighting Technician's Handbook by Harry C. Box.
It mentions about the Contrast Viewing Glass. It sounds like ,it is a useful tool on set for DP. (http://www.filmtools.com/conview.html)
I heard of people just use sun glasses instead of that.
Anyone use it before? is it worth to spend 40 bucks to buy one?
Is it helpful, somewhat accurate or would it slow down my pace on set?
between. I am a college student starting to do more shootings.

Sunglasses don't do the same thing. I've used them and kind of liked it for help "seeing" while I light. I may get one sometime to be able to use it more and see if I really like it.

Not as fancy as the $40 ones but works. you can use the $2 one til you decide it is worth the $40 for the real thing.

Needless to say, I don't use one.
