Will be excited to see what you get. If all goes well I will be ordering a lpm Friday so I can have some results as to what mine is putting out.

Any estimates on the output? I usually compare to my other lasers for a decently accurate output.

If you need more reasons to buy a 589nm laser then this site will help "The new Yellow Laser ? Weber Medical ? medical laser applications"

It says it can have detoxifying effect and an anti-depressive effect!

Don't know about the detoxifying effect, but it sure does seem to have an anti-depressive effect; heck, after looking at brucemir's latest photo session how can anyone even think of being depressed!

Sure. Im not trashing the companies products just Adams arrogant "how dare you question me" attitude. I wrote some to the point but polite emails with concerns of the reported way under spec 589s from him that the buyers ended up getting really screwed and his replies were totally patronizing and rude. He also refuses to stand behind the products advertised power. That was pretty surprising. In short the guys attitude sucks and I would never give any company my money that won't stand behind there products.

A company that dosen't stand behind their products & is rude to customers deserves one thing only, to go out of business ASAP.

Hi Steve,
Just wanted to let you know in case you weren't aware we have a GB going for CNI PGL-III-589 80mW. They normally retail for $900 with international shipping but with the group buy would cost you about $675. So a couple hundred more dollars than the DL but 30mW more power that is guaranteed by CNI unlike DL that wont give you this.

So a couple hundred more dollars than the DL but 30mW more power that is guaranteed by CNI unlike DL that wont give you this.
Thanks nw, I will certainly bear this in mind, appreciate the info.

Default Re: CNI vs. DL, a tough decision for 589nm.

Shame yellow lasers are so expensive, even with a discount its still over 500$ thats just too much for a unstable laser i guess yellow lasers will never be mass produced like 532 right ?

From what I have learned they're very inefficient and only 3% for 589. Compared to 30% for 532. And I believe it's a bit more complicated than just frequency doubling as with 532. I see 589's is kind of a high maintenance complicated girlfriend that's super hot. Lol. It's more amazing that we even have them available at all.
