Default Is this worth it?

LASER BEAM POINTER AC POWERED, 3 UNITS, Helium Neon He Ne.

I found these on craigslist, I don't know much about gas lasers or why they are so expensive. Why are gas lasers so expensive? And are these worth it?

Thanks for the help guys

Not a very good deal, you should be able to get one for under $100 here or on ebay.
Gas lasers are expensive because ever since diode lasers they are n ot in high demand. Also they cost much more to manufacture.

Spam post deleted.

p.s. Do I have to post this after all the deleted spam I have commented on? I just don't want to look like I was getting mad over nothing.

I don't think they are worth the asking price.
You can get much better deals on ebay.

A couple years ago I got 3 - 14" hene tubes for about $35.00 each with power supply. I agree with others, if you keep a look out, you should be able to get for under $100.00

If you are looking to spend that kind of money, ebay has a green one for under $200.00 or mkae offer. It doesn't include power supply but its green and you probably could get for less.

Gas lasers are not nearly as common anymore so they are a lot more rare than diode lasers. Red HeNes are still pretty easy to find though, but there are always people who think their stuff is made of gold. Somtimes prices are high because that's what people are willing to pay, other times someone is just ignorant, or fishing for a sucker willing to pay a high price.

So true. There is always at least two or three 1mW hene's for at least $800 on ebay
