Talking laser newbie shopping for 200mW or so green hand-held

I apologize if im not posting this to the right place - i'm new to the forums.
I recently acquired a 5mW green pen laser from a Chinese seller on Ebay.
It seems to have to warm up before it will beam at full strength .
I have to push the button a few times before it will come up to speed.
It does seem that the beam diverges? at a noticeable distance at night, outside when I aim to the horizon .
(yes I know not to aim at aircraft/law enforcement/people/houses/etc.)

I want to upgrade to something brighter/more powerful such as 200mW ...
I've noticed there are a bunch of websites like gadgettown.com and dino something rather and wicked lasers selling reasonably priced 200mW green lasers...

Which is ideal for cost/quality ratio ??!!

you should know that 5mw to 200mw is a great improvement...very great....maby to great for you?
Also, you can have seen 200mw videos on youtube, but half of them are bought on ebay, dealextreme, and shops like that. those video owners have lasers of about 100~150mw...
something to have in mind when asking for mw's.
