Default GUIDE: Which company should I buy from?

Hello folks!

A lot of people have been asking for this, and I thought it would help a lot of new members, so I decided to write this guide.
It is by no means complete, and this should be considered a community effort.
So if you have any more information, or reviews you'd like me to link, please do comment.

Let's begin with the baddies. If you want to hear about good companies, I suggest you skip this section.
IMPORTANT!

Do not buy from any of the following companies.
If you want to see good companies, skip this section.

The following companies will send you defective lasers, refuse to accept returns when they break, vastly overestimate their power, steal your money, and/or kill your dog.


LaserPointerPro
SITE: Laser Pointers - Green, Red, Blue Lasers at Laserpointerpro.com
This company is guilty of... a lot of things.

See this?
This is at maximum, a 2W laser, worth $100 or so. Yet they set its initial price at a ludicrous $7999, "SAVE 93%!", overprice it by 500%, and then claim it's 10 watts. A 10W 445nm diode does not even exist as of July 2016.
So this company is a clear scam.
They also put out some pretty ridiculous videos.

World's Coolest Lasers
SITE: The World's Coolest Lasers
This company is a known scam.

See this?
This is a 301 laser. It goes for $8 on eBay.
This guy wants to sell it to you for $40. Scam!
He also used a forum member's images, without his permission, and claimed that they were of his own product.
When I contacted him, he admitted to using for his products images he found on Google.
Here's a thread about this scam:
Laser opinions

WarnLaser, Insanity Laser, LazerPoint, LuckLaser, HTPOW, Tacticult
SITE: laserpointer 500mw|Ir Laser|Green Laser|High power Lasers pointer: WarnLaser.com
SITE: https://insanitylaser.com/xpro
SITE: Green Lasers
SITE: High power laser pointer store, LuckLaser focus on laser pointers.
SITE: http://www.htpow.com/
SITE: https://tacticult.com/
SITE: http://widelasers.com/
These sites are all selling LaserPointerPro type junk. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM!

LaserGlow
LaserGlow used to be a great company (a CNI reseller), but their prices have slowly risen over the years.
Now they are completely unreasonable, and lie about their lasers ($1100 for 1.2W 445nm "most powerful laser in the world"? I don't think so.)
They have stopped shipping >5mW lasers to the US, but international users beware. Better prices can be found almost anywhere!

Wicked Lasers
Wicked Lasers is old news now, but I thought I'd add them too.
Products are overpriced and they lie A LOT. I've also a lot of horror stories from WL customers, including WL batteries exploding.
The Arctic IS NOT, NEVER WAS, AND NEVER WILL BE the world's most powerful handheld laser.





Now, on to the companies that are worth your time.

GOOD COMPANIES


Sanwu Lasers


ADVANTAGES: Great host quality, lots of options, high power available
DISADVANTAGES: Some lasers won't fit protected batteries
BEST PRICES ON: High-power lasers, especially 405nm
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 2-3 weeks with fixed shipping, <1 week with express

SITE: https://www.sanwulasers.org/

Sanwu is a great laser company, owned by a member of this very forum (Podo.) It's one of the first companies I recommend to new members who want high-powered lasers.
They have very nice hosts, and lots of options. They even have multi-mode drivers with code locks!
I've also heard good things about Podo's customer service.
In general, I would say that Sanwu is the single best company for high-powered lasers. Their prices are reasonable and their products are top-notch.
Here's an example (the Spiker series):

And a few reviews:
Thanks to Podo!! Sanwu Challenger....
Sanwu pocket 445nm laser 500mw with G7 lens review
Sanwu SILVER SERIES 3W Laser Review w/ 3X BE!




JetLasers


ADVANTAGES: Best host quality available, readily available beam expander
DISADVANTAGES: High prices
BEST PRICES ON: 473nm
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 2-3 weeks

SITE: JETLASERS.ORG

In terms of quality, JetLasers can't be beat. They are renowned on this forum for their beautiful PL-E Pro host:

I've heard reports that they have practically unlimited duty cycle!
They also have the ability to add a code switch (or a key switch) to their lasers, which is nice.
A few reviews:
New big boy toy! Jetlasers PL-E Pro 300mW 532nm review
Jetlasers PL-E Pro 445nm 2w Review
Review: Jetlasers Custom 1W 532nm handheld **New Host Design**




LaserBTB


ADVANTAGES: FDA compliance (majority of lasers), many safety features
DISADVANTAGES: Lasers cannot be disassembled without destroying them
BEST PRICES ON: Most pen-style lasers
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 2-3 weeks

Site: laserbtb

LaserBTB is best known for the plethora of safety features included in their lasers.
In fact, almost all of their lasers comply fully with FDA regulations, which is unusual these days.
I also recommend this company for those looking for a good-quality laser pointer (pen-style).
Here is an example (the PL series):

See that advertisement for SKYtech Lasers?
They are selling LaserBTB products, just at higher prices.
Just buy from LaserBTB.
And a few reviews:
Laserbtb PL 445nm 500mW Laser Review
Laserbtb 5mW 515nm pointer
Lasterbtb 520nm 50mW [HL520-50B single mode] review




DragonLasers


ADVANTAGES: Good host quality, CNI products, readily available beam expander
DISADVANTAGES: High prices, occasionally sends underspec lasers
BEST PRICES ON: 589nm
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 4 days!

SITE: Buy laser and Optics Online :: Dragon Lasers

DragonLasers is a reseller of CNI lasers (CNI no longer ships to the US.)
DragonLasers are known around here for being the main trustworthy seller of yellow DPSS lasers.
I would say that my DragonLasers Spartan 589nm is probably the single best laser that I have in my collection.

Here is an example of one of their products (the Spartan series)

And a few reviews!
Dragonlasers Spartan 50mW 589nm
It's been almost a year time for my DL 589 spartan review
Dragonlasers Spartan 200mw 532nm and 90mw 637nm review




BitLasers


ADVANTAGES: Affordable prices, accepts bitcoin, has LPF discount
DISADVANTAGES: Unspectacular hosts
BEST PRICES ON:: High-power lasers
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: <need more data>

SITE: http://bitlasers.com/opencart/

BitLasers is owned by a forum member (Grix), and as you might expect, accepts bitcoin (along with PayPal and other methods.)
It is a great company to purchase high-power lasers. If you want a cheap, high-power laser, with nothing fancy, here's your place!
Also, because you have read this, you can use the discount code LPF10 to get 10% off.




Optotronics


ADVANTAGES: Excellent customer service, high quality, US-based
DISADVANTAGES: Very high prices
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 2 days!!

SITE: http://www.optotronics.com/

Optotronics is a US-based company, and from what I've heard, have some of the highest-quality lasers available anywhere.
They also have excellent customer service - I have heard reports that the owner will even talk on the phone!




XPL

We strongly recommend that you avoid this company for the time being. There has been a severe drop in quality as of late.

SITE: http://www.aliexpress.com/store/1722148

XPL has been a relatively controversial company recently. I brought it to light a few months ago after purchasing 2 lasers from them.
The owner, Peng, is extremely fast with customer service, and offers a 15% discount to LPF members *IF* you contact him before purchasing and inform him you're an LPF member.
The best thing about this company, in my opinion, is the extremely high-power 532nm lasers. It's the only company I've ever seen with a 1.5W or 2W 532 in a handheld.
The company also offers beam-combining RG:Y and RB:M lasers which are unavailable anywhere else.
However, the construction of some of the lasers is not the best. My 635nm 600mW had a shaking lens (which, mind you, was easily corrected with thread tape.)
Review:
Video review: 500mW 532nm and 600mW 635nm Lasers from XPL!



O-Like

ADVANTAGES: Great prices on entry-level lasers
DISADVANTAGES: Quality isn't the best
BEST PRICES ON: Entry-level lasers
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 2-3 weeks

SITE: Welcome to O-like,the source of good quality laser products at unbeatable price and perfect service !

I'd say O-like is the best substitute for the typical Chinese/eBay type lasers.
They're slightly more expensive but their quality is much greater than your usual eBay laser.
If you want a starter laser, here's your place.
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 2-3 weeks


Gearbest

ADVANTAGES: Best prices on starter lasers
DISADVANTAGES: Poor quality, slow shipping
BEST PRICES ON: Starter lasers
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 4-5 weeks

SITE: GearBest: Online Shopping - Best Gear at Best Prices

Gearbest sells the standard eBay lasers (the ones sold by LaserPointerPro and the like) at non-inflated prices.
A nice place to get a starter laser. My two Gearbest 532s are still up and running after 2 years!
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 4-5 weeks


Lazerer

ADVANTAGES: Good prices on entry-level lasers
DISADVANTAGES: Slow shipping, quality could be better
BEST PRICES ON: Entry-level lasers
MEDIAN SHIPPING TIME: 4-5 weeks

SITE: http://lazerer.com/

Lazerer sells fairly generic lasers, but not at inflated prices like those of LaserPointerPro.
Another good choice for a starting laser.
Review:
Lazerer 638nm 200mW Single Mode Laser pointer review



ATTENTION!
Please post your shipping times (entire time, from purchase to arrival) if you've bought from any of the companies listed.
I want to create a reliable estimate for the shipping time of each company. Thanks!






Well, that's about it for now. More companies will be added later.

Again, if you've got any reviews for me to use, or any information to add, please post a comment!


Edit: stickied, yay

Default Re: GUIDE: Which company should I buy from?

Thanks for putting this together - Maybe add O-like on there as trusted, they haven't outright scammed anyone and their prices/products are reasonable - maybe have a sort of "OK Companies" section that's in orange. They aren't bad but if you're looking for quality/speed they shouldn't be your first choice. I'm sure there are others we can put in that category too.

Edit: Ooooh - Almost forgot about Optotronics too - Also guess we could throw CNI on there? Up to you - no one really deals with them (CNI) directly anyway...

Thank you, will do. I think that they belong with XPL. I have a few more scams to add as well (lucklaser, etc.)

Add these guys to the blacklist. Typical ripoff artists reselling $5 laser 303's and such for $40-50.

I'd suggest adding optotronics to the 'good' companies section. They're located within the US and sell decent enough products.

IMO I'd have a middle-ground category for companies such as O-Like and Lazerer. Both companies seem to send out decent enough products and reasonable prices. They're not top-of-the-line, but they're not ripoff companies IMO.

Default Re: GUIDE: Which company should I buy from?

This list is missing Sci-fi lasers.

Also you are missing Sky Tech lasers, one of LPF's sponsors. Not sure how reliable they are though, haven't seen many purchases from them.

I added your two scams, along with lucklaser.
I will add optotronics, o-like, and XPL.

Sci-fi what?
SkyTech is laserbtb with markup.

Default Re: GUIDE: Which company should I buy from?

Thanks for making this Sta and advertising the companies which simply want to take advantage of people who are just joining this hobby & don't yet understand the correct prices for different lasers!

If I can add my shipping times, I've bought from both DragonLasers & laserbtb and since I always chose the DHL option I find it takes around 3-4 business days for stuff to get to me

I still recommend them to beginners sometimes because they have quality <5mw green pointers at an affordable price. However, I've looked at some of their other stuff and it left me wondering what kind of crack they're smoking.

https://www.laserglow.com/GPO

The Polaris is the world's most powerful visible-wavelength blue portable laser. Cutting-edge 447 nm laser diode technology brings power levels previously only possible using bench-top blue lasers at a fraction of the cost.

BULL CRAP False advertising like this makes the old wickedlasers look reputable. Only $1100 for the 1.2W "most powerful blue laser in the world"

I understand that their units are reasonably high quality being CNI made and all, but that's no excuse for lying and overcharging by such an amount. What happened to this company?

IMO BLATANTLY lying about your products should get you added to the blacklist.

They sell the same lasers as LaserBTB - service used to be good but haven't heard much about them as of late.

HELP please LASERBTB VS SKYTECH same laser but different prices?

I'm sure there are other threads on the topic.

Laserglow is old news by now. They no longer ship to the US, but I suppose I can add them.

True, but this site has a lot of international users who might still get suckered by laserglow. I'd also add gearbest and kaidomain to the gray area companies. They aren't selling anything outrageously overpriced, but their products are still far from what I'd call quality.

Gearbest's prices are actually pretty good. I will probably add them to the category with O-like, XPL, and the like.

Default Re: GUIDE: Which company should I buy from?

Thanks hap. I just made a recent purchase from Skytech but only because they are having a clearance sale now. My shipping time was about a week and 3 days. Here is the review I did. If you do post it, I will edit it to make it a little better. Again thanks to everyone who helped, I had no idea my thread would lead to this but hopefully this will stop all those "Which Laser Should I Buy" threads.

Also, please post your shipping times! I need several for each company before I can make my medians.

I think we need more reviews to properly list XPL. It's still unknown how legit their 1W+ 532nm lasers will be. Right now seems like we're all waiting for them to finish their new hosts.

Lazerer 638nm 200mW Single Mode Laser pointer review
Lazerer is another company that deserves mention imo. I've reviewed one of their products and it seemed perfectly legit and their prices are 'ok'.

As for shipping times:
O-like seem to get stuff to me within 4-5 weeks of ordering.
Jetlasers take 2-3 weeks.
Sanwu takes 2-3 weeks usually.
Lazerer took around 4 weeks.
Gearbest took 4-5 weeks.
Laserbtb took around 3 weeks.
Dragonlasers have VERY fast shipping if the product is in stock. Usually <1 week.
