Mine has a Green lens also. It was about $350, which is mid market. It's a Blue Point which I suspect is made by Miller and relabled. My tool dealer stated that you want at least a mid market $350ish helmet as it has adjustable darkness and adjustable sensitivity. The cheaper helmets do not. The more expensive helmets are probably not going to do the casual user much good either. If you weld all day every day, you would notice an improvement in comfort and effectiveness.
The one gripe I have with my helmet is that the knobs which tension the pivot loosen every time I flip the helmet, so I am constantly re-tensioning them. You may want to go to a welding supply store and try on a couple helmets before you buy and weed out ones with short comings like that.
