Default What do you think of this laser?

1W 445nm blue Laser torch/waterproof/focusable [OL445T-1W] - $189.99 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products

I currently do not have the money to buy a laser, but what do you think of this laser?

It seems kinda cheap (inexpensive) for a 1W laser, but then again I'm just a laser noob.

Thanks,
matt

The diode by itself would be over $1500 if you were even able to buy it separately.
The reason these lasers have come down in price is because they are in an easily accessible consumer product. We avoid saying the name on LPF though.
It is really what it says it is and o-like is a reputable company.
Have fun but you NEED laser goggles. This is not an option if you even want to turn it on safely.
I thought people were far too cautious when I first came to this forum but after I built my first laser I understood that it is true.
Find some good gear or you will be buying a seeing-eye dog next.
