Default What do you think of this and the website in general?

Well I found this website offering some extremely (yet too good to be true) deals. http://www.lazerpoint.com/p-500mw-53...-silver_477186 for example.

They also advertise 2000mW of 532nm for only 159! Like this has to be completely illegitimate am I right? Or under spec by at least half advertised. Not sure but I love the look of their hosts, I might consider buying the one I linked... 500mW for 39 bucks? Not much to lose on it, free shipping and who knows, even if it's 150mW that's still a damn good deal!

Let me know what you think or if you've bought from them

Yup. It's bullshit.

I wouldn't order from a website that lies about their laser specs.

This is just your run of the mill Chinese re-shipper or drop shipper

They don't make anything

They have no "reputation"

As stated by ARG/daguin,

These are typical mass-produced cheap pens which cost only cents to make. Save your hard earned money and buy a *quality* laser my friend

Yeah I have a 750 mW 445 from laserbtb in the mail- well it's still processing which takes 3-4 days but it's been about a week now... Hopefully it ships out tomorrow! Paid for DHL so i'm real eager. Anyways thanks for the feedback, will stick to known sellers.

Nooo go for cheap and give a crap on advertised power outputs
http://laserpointerforums.com/f52/10...ml#post1269407


Ok, it´s a personal addict to buy cheap dark horse lasers to test their true output.
With the years you get a feeling for `what is worth a look´ and `when to hit the buy-button whatever power-output is claimed´

There's this:
http://laserpointerforums.com/f52/re...age-85099.html
But this could have changed by now. Its common knowledge that these kind of sites have overstated specs. The time you get an overspec is with the "5mW" pens.

Not sure what you meant exactly by that last part, but I did get a good laugh at the picture from the thread you posted. 10000mW for only 15 bucks, what a steal haha!
