Default O-like?

I just ordered this from o-like, now that i've done some research, this seems too good to be true, and o-like seems to be going downhill, thoughts?

and no, I can't cancel my order, already shipped.

I received my order form o-like fairly quickly after Chinese new year. But I did opt for the DHL shipping. All in all if you know what your buying your probably not going to be disappointed.

Oh, I didn't order any lasers from them... Only optics, drivers and some modules.

Default Re: O-like?

O-Like is cool, that's a bargain for a 1w and I have that same housing with a 400mw 405 I bought from O-Like years ago, it still works great.

It is focusable and waterproof too.




It has an O-ring tail cap, the front half unscrews and has a DOUBLE O-ring center and the focus shaft has O-rings.
I have put it under water and it works, it also has a front window sealed in.

O'Like is doing very well now for the past year actually like they used to be--they had problems for a short while but are now back up to speed----your order will not be a problem. Will be what it is for $54.99.

Is not a large or heavy duty host with great heat sinking for long runtime but it will be OK as a beginners first laser plus it is focusable and waterproof as well--make sure to use laser goggles to protect your eyes---1W can cause eye damage faster than you can blink or move to avoid it
See: http://lasersafetyfacts.com/resource...ance-chart.pdf

PS I have a 405nm and 650nm in same host from O'Like that I bought back in 2011 and they are fine--have held up well and still work well.

Yes, proper eye protection is a must, laser safety glasses that attenuate the wavelength you are working with.

Thank you very much, this makes me confident that I won't get ripped off, and yes I have safety goggles, I like my vision

That is probably the best deal around, that's less than it costs to buy parts and build one yourself.
