Decided this was a bad idea: probably an underpowered laser and an unreliable seller.

GB/Holiday forum members only offer..

the 200mw turned out to be between 60-100mw which was disappointing but it was only $18.89 free shipping. There was no set amount needed to be reached it was just a discount given too us.

"This high-quality laser pointer incorporates the latest technology on green laser optics and microelectronics" I'm pretty sure the "latest technology on green laser optics" would mean that it would have the 520nm DIODES in it.... Seeing as they work out to be $18.50 each... They're obviously DPSS. Pulling shit out of there ass again, I wouldn't be trusting them.

Usually people dont make anything from a GB. They do it to help the community. You are doing nothing but helping yourself here. And with only 44 post, I dont feel comfortable sending you any kind of money, let alone giving you a profit from some cheapo laser that you have no clue of its quality.

If you cant afford to buy a $20 laser then you are in the wrong hobby my friend.
I was hoping to help out the community as well as help myself out. I just payed $245 for a laser, so I'm trying to limit the amount of money I spend on lasers >.<
If it was a larger group buy and I had enough people interested, I would be happy to buy one to test it out, but I wouldn't be able to accurately test the power since I don't have a LPM.

The proper way to do a GB is to buy a few samples, test them, then announce the GB. There are 100's of web sites that offer a discount if you buy more than one laser, so there is nothing special here, and many ways for us (and you) to get taken.

What if they all turn out to be <10mw? What if some of your outgoing shipments come up missing? What if 5 of them didnt even work? Are you going to take money out of your pocket to cover any problems that arise? I read the feedback for that seller, and its not good.

Its smarter to just buy the laser then to come up with a GB just to get 1 free. If you find the laser is decent, then decide if you want to do a GB or not. If its average then just move on. Thats how it works.

I understand. Thanks for letting me know, I'll make sure to do that next time.

Default Re: Feeler: 50mW focusable green laser, $21 + shipping and paypal fees

Just to add one, the style of the two lasers are different, they are not the same. Also with $21 there is no shipping included, and the seller would dropship to individual adresses for an additional price. I have this seller on skype, direct prices are lower, to eliminate the aliexpress fees (after verifying the seller). But I have purchases a few different styles of green lasers, 4 in total, all claim to be 200mW atleast (some say 1000mW sticker, but actually talking to seller they say its 200) in the next 2-3weeks I will be getting a lpm and the rest of the lasers. Then I will actually measure and see what is the real power. If the items are good, or whichever one is good, and if the price works out to be lower than what they go for on this website, they might be worth a group buy one of the sellers, has 98% feedback and is almost 3 years old, this one: Aliexpress.com : Buy Free shipping 100mw 200mw green Laser Flashlight TD GP 121 laser green 200mw from Reliable laser pointer 100mw 200MW suppliers on Tiande -- 24Hours Shipping I got this for $45, with aluminum case and glasses, not the cardboard case (I just think it makes a better presentation of product and safer in shipping)
