If you buy that one I think you're overpaying.

You can get a better price here: BDR-S06J 12x Blu-Ray burner lens(500+mW) [M0019] - $51.99 : Modwerx Shop

If you're new to lasers (and building lasers), I'd suggest you start with a lower power laser, like an PHR or a 6X if you're looking for blu-ray. For red, try a LPC-815. They are cheaper, so if you mess it up it won't cost you too much. Also, it's better to start with a lower power laser for safety reasons.

The first thing you should buy is a pair of laser safety goggles. Try dragon lasers, pretty good quality and a good price.

If you need some guidance on how to get started building your own laser, check the links in my sig.

That will cover you for:
405nm Violet
445nm Blue
532nm Green

So I'd say it's a good pair of glasses for your purposes.

Hey, I was thinkin about doing what this guy was about to, I just need to know a little info about what kind of driver I'm going to need?

SF-BW512L 12x Sled with 600mW+ BluRay 405nm Laser Diode (eBay item 160554403521 end time 03-Apr-11 09:07:41 AEST) : Consumer Electronics

That's the diode I'll be using, just don't know much about drivers. I know what they are and what they do, I just don't know the specifics of what kind I'd need for a project like this.

I've had good luck with this seller:
New SF-BW512 Laser pickup has 12x Laser Diode sled | eBay

6 sleds from him now - all great.

The micro boost from drlava would be an excellent choice is you're building a hand-held. If you're building a labby, a linear driver would work too.

There is a search function in the upper left corner.
If you type in "linear driver" this is one of the first results.
How Do Linear Drivers Work?
