Are all IR cut filters the same

NOT front mounted ERFs.

I have a revalation IR blocking filter, not expensive but also not an unknown ebay brand.

Are they though all about the same.

Using the filter before the Quark, is there really any benefit in a £50 one over a £15 one.

Many thanks ... -1-25.html

Just for info, if I ever come over as "blunt" or upset it is not intentional, I am AUTISTIC, I have Aspergers, and ADHD, Autism, so my apologies if I ever sound, unintentionally confrontational. Thank you
