Thumbs up Buying my first laser!

Hey guys, im new to this forum and im also very new to lasers.
I have never owned a laser before and im very excited about getting one,
I basically need advice on what company to go with what power to go with and things like that.
I would like one that burns items such as plastic and pop balloons an things.
I was thinking about gettin the wicked lasers E3 as its 200mw which to me is powerful, but i would rather have some one with experience help me choose.
an yes i no about safety an yes i do take it seriously theres no children in my home so i should be fine an i also already own safety glasses.
So.. the advice im after is:

company
power
one that wont break the same day!!
colour of laser
i want one that goes for distance
NOT VERY EXPENSIVE LOL!
An basically one i can have fun with I.E burning things hehe!

Any help would be great guys cheers

I'd go with a Rayfoss or O-Like 532nm 100mw (Green) they are reliable, output what is stated and won't break the bank these will do the normal tricks you require, Burn plastic, pop baloons, light matches etc

and Welcome to LPF
