Default My first blue laser?

Hey everyone. Look over here, I'm new!


Anyway, I wanted to get my fiance a powerful laser as a gift, so I bought what is listed as a 2W blue laser for her. Anyway, after spending $200 (laser, some extra goggles for me, and quicker shipping), I began to see negative reviews of this website. Really bad ones.

This forum seems so alive, can you help me? Did I just get ripped off? Look - she's never had a powerful laser. Neither have I. I've tried my research, and seen that this laser might 'just' be 1.6w. That's okay! That's still good enough for me!

What I'm worried about is never receiving it. Or it being so weak it can't even light a match...

I need help - from a human who has experience and is not a paid advertiser of this site. Thanks in advance, guys. Just want to make her smile.

You can post links, its not against the rules here.
I don't see why anyone would consider that post spam
There's no way to tell if you got ripped off until you get it and test it. That listing seems fairly accurate for the price, but again, you won't know until you get it.

It's best to ask questions and read reviews before you buy something.

Avoid lucklaser they are crap and sells underspec lasers with bad quality too, just the name gives me the chills... if u want buy a good laser then look at,

laserbtb
http://jetlasers.org/en
Sci-Fi-Lasers

And also buying a laser over 1W is just so crazy overkill if u ask me, those kind of powers u want when u burn stuff mostly, for everyday use even a 100 or 200mW of power is more then enough to get a visible beam if we talk about blue or green lasers, that much kind if power u should have goggles all the time if u are afraid of your eyes but thats not fun really having to wear those as u have power enough to kill superman!
