The eBay number is: 161766909983 I paid a little under $1000 with shipping with BEST OFFER. I'm assuming its the 520, but would be just as happy with the 532 (assuming it shows up on WL's validation lookup table as legit).
It is the 520nm version, the description states "using solid state diode technology"

That being said, that is Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy too much money for 1W of 520nm's. Actually, that coming from the guy who payed $400 for 5mW's of it, oh well I like mine

Thanks for your replies, guys!

I wonder if the 520s are going to really come down in price once the demand is met.

Eventually, I'm going to get out of this laser hobby. IMO, they're still just waaaay too dangerous...even for a reasonably careful person.

Saw the ebay listing by the Canadian guy---he doesnt say what output it is ---for that cost plus price it better be 900+ mW.

520nm has come down--Jetlasers has them available 1W for $399 520nm Equality series Green Lasers

I any case good luck with the WL 520nm --hope for no trouble with US Customs.
