My bad, wrong website. All the lasers they sell you can find for cheaper prices on eBay or Fasttech. They're the generic 303 and pen styles that you'll find everywhere, as they're being mass produced in China and are sold almost everywhere.

As for the quality, there really is none. Not one of the green lasers sold for less than $20 online are actually less than 10mW; most of them are 60-100. Build quality is pretty good, depending on which one you get. You won't be disappointed with them if you know what you're getting, and perhaps even if you don't. But that's the danger: they're not safe for viewing in close quarters, and most people are under the impression that they're 5mW.

No problem! And Encap didn't mean to be rude, we just get a lot of useless spam and uneducated, unresearched questions on this site, and since the website you linked to didn't sell lasers, your post did seem like spam. No harm done!

Sorry about that. No introduction in the welcome section--first post--web site that is not a laser site in general.
I did search before I posted but without cookies enable and no laser came up- so thought is was another general product web site with no lasers promotion spam post. Spamming has been epidemic on LPF recently.
Anyway nothing on that site is worth buying laser-wise if you are looking for anything other than low end mass produced cheap Chinese lasers --not all of them are bad per se but none of them are considered good either and most are misrepresented deceptively promoted--you get what you pay for.

Looks like the web site is a bottomless pit reseller of every other reseller in China's stuff --- reselling everybodys everything in every product catagory, not stocking anything. They order for you from the actual seller who then ships from China.

From what I see people should definately avoid buying anything from through geeks.com --see links below

Tons of complaints about the web site--many claim fraud or scam.

Agree except the "you won't be disappointed" part which may or may not be true. A lot of people claim getting nonfunctional or defective stuff from them.

Exactly and is a very suspect site in any product catagory for several reasons.
