It also will have a smaller (but much less visible) beam and can burn even white objects due to fluorescence. You may have to pm him for a quote, as it is not sold through his site - or you can look for other builds in the B/S/T section.
Think on colour first how visible is it .a 500mW violet is very dull brightness if you could call it that,compared to a blue compared a red then green you actually want to see it .Then think about power i would get a blue first then violet, red then green for burning .If your going to collect one of each colour like most of us on the forum start with a green then blue,red,Violet. Visual is most important 95% of the time ,you burn stuff but only a small % of the time you use your laser.

Yep, I will probably buy one and be hooked and want one of every color. I have a red Infiniter that I acquired in the early '90's when I was a Medical Examiner. Paid a shit load for it. Always have wanted a burning one. Next I will want a tank of sharks. Lol
