Default Saftey

Hi everybody, my name is Jason and I'm new here. I found the site, dinodirect, recently and Ive seen the site mentioned in a few post here so I thought it'd be a good place to ask. Ive seen where they have high powered lasers for more than half the price of what I see on other sites and it just looks to good to be true. So it got me thinking that there must be some reason they're able to sell them so cheap. My guess is that if they are cheaply made they might not be as safe as the others like o-like or somthing along those lines. I'm hoping to hear that they are safe but thought I'd ask just to be careful. Thanks in advance for any help!

Ps: I have heard the warnings about the site but I'm more concerned about the products themselves.

It's not about the safety, it's about lasers themselves.

You may see that their "400mW" is half the price of O-like 400mW, but it is only declared as 400mW for reasons unknown.
General rule of thumb > Price = Power (with exceptions of course).

If you see a laser that costs $100 and is declared 400mW, you KNOW it's too good to be true (as you said it) and the laser will most likely be around 150-200mW if you are lucky.

Problems with cheap lasers go even more complex - inconstistencies in the manufacturing line, power fluctations, Transverse Mode hopping of the beam, failure rates.

What sort of laser are you looking for?
