Default Where should I buy pre-assembled from?

I was going to post this in the Buy/Sell category but decided the Help section would be better.

1) Where can I buy/possible have someone build something similar to/more powerful than this? I have been wanting to buy from WickedLasers for some time but after reading the terrible experiences that people have had on these forums decided not to. When I compared their prices to other big sellers they were the cheapest. I would like to stay in this price range. I read "A Guide To Buying Your First Green Laser" and was considering buying from Rayfoss. However, I would really like some recommendations based on my price range and expectations.

What I hope to get something similar to:
100mW and 200mW Red, Green, & Purple Laser | E3 Series

I've been trying to read up as much as I can on laser construction/maintenance/safety here but sadly cannot put it to use/test it out due to the limited budget of a teen.

Thanks again from a complete noob

Well, I take it you're looking for a red laser? If you are, I suggest this one if/when you can afford it:
New Style red laser 200mW /adjustable [OLNRL200] - $45.99 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products

O-Like are good people. Radiant's module would be a good buy as well, and get to you a lot faster, but the O-Like one is premade.

Thanks, will search for a review of this site/product. I'm just worried because $46 for a 200mW laser seems a little bit to cheap (correct me if I'm wrong), and many sites e.g. DealExtreme sell similar items that, upon review, do not live up to what they claim.

O-Like has a very good rep and lots and lots of people from this forum have bought from them. Most of their lasers and up to, if not over spec and you can even e-mail them (Susie) and they will tell you the actual output of the specific laser they will be sending you.

It's not too cheap. Due to the inexpensive red diodes that can be pushed at high currents, 200mW of red for $50 is normal.
O-like always sends lasers that are at-or-above what they claim, DX does not.
