Yeah, I'd rather the host look like something from WL. But in all honesty, it doesn't matter to me much as long as the diode functions well.(and it does)

I was very close to buying that "Thor" laser that's on eBay because the beam is similar, and the host is good looking. After seeing another member here do a review on it, and seeing the burnt plastic part, I feel like I dodged a bullet. At least this particular laser I have is made completely of metal(minus the power button) and has thus far been very durable. I can honestly say that I'd recommend it to somebody.

I don't consider the one I bought to be junk. I've enjoyed it quite a bit since I've bought it, and it's pretty powerful.

A lasers value is the use and enjoyment you get out of it.

Hec, I had tons of fun with a cheap $8 5mW 650 I bought a few years back and used the finger & arrow lenses to mess around in class with it haha! Years later, I got a $400 473 laser pointer and didn't get the same thrill out of it even though it's a much more valuable item.

If you enjoy what you bought, who cares?!? Have fun with it

I couldn't agree more with you! I guess the way I wrote it, it just came out wrong lol what I meant was, just be cautious with those cheap ebay lasers. I've seen and heard to many bad stories about them. Also I've recently found out that 98%,of those 1.6w 450's are mass produced diodes and that's why theyre so cheap.. I bought a few of them from my brothers coworker.. what ever makes ya happy is all that matters..

Not a problem haha. Yeah, I've seen my fair share of eBay horror stories as well which is why I try to stay clear of those lasers(especially the 532 DPSS). I bought a 405 from a seller a few months ago and it was actually pretty good! Beam was easily visible on a dark room and made some neat fluorescence tricks

In the end, it's your money and nobody else's. Sure, take some opinions and advice from others, but only yourself know what you like and don't like.
