Default Which DX 30mW green laser should I get?

I read about how good the true 30 was and liked the IR filter. So I ordered it thought it turns out it hasnt shipped ye.
Now I see that the ir filter doesnt exist anymore which means they are trying to save money and I feel like maybe they are also gonna save money and get a cheaper diode that doesnt emit 30mW.
Also I've been reading the romisen 30mW is really good. I just don't know which one.

so should I try to change my true 30 to the romisen 30?
i need recommendations QUICK before it ships please
and if the romisen...which one?
L-A030 http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.11018
L-B030 http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10557
L-D030 http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12274
or L-030 http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.11047
?

if you vote in poll please leave a comment, why you chose what you chose.
If you believe another DX item is better, please recommend here.
But I'm sticking with this price range so please don't recommend saving up for a 50mW or something.

Default Re: Which DX 30mW green laser should I get?

Its not that bad , its bigger than I expected it was though , I have a slightly different one from in the pics though, mines doesnt have the lens right at the end of the aperture, the lens on mines is further in.

its quite rugged to, mines has multiple dents on it from being dropped and it works perfect.

But it aint that bad lookin anyway, my friends are all wanting one, one of my mates is getting one next week, and hes ordering me batteries and a charger for mines aswell.

It's great for carrying on you wherever you go so you can amaze people with its green brilliance .

Default Re: Which DX 30mW green laser should I get?

it seems to be between the true and the B romisen
no offense diachi but I can't stand how the A030 looks

so has anyone experienced both or does anyone know which one is better in terms of
beam divergence, power, build quality, which will last a longer lifespan, etc.
also does the true 30 over heat quickly or vice versa?
basically pros and cons of the two please...

time is running out before theyll ship my true 30

Damn that A030 is indeed ugly. Pointers and portables don't have to win design prizes as far as I'm concerned, but that thing looks ridiculous. I'd go for the B030.

Default Re: Which DX 30mW green laser should I get?

okay IF i do go with the romisen
I'd also need a cr123a battery correct?

I'm already getting this charger http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2031 for the dilda CR2s

what are good batteries from dx that will work with the romisen on a high power (i dont want it to be dim cuz of shitty or weak batteries), they have a lot of choices on dx...

---
also more votes please: True 30 or Romisen B030

and charger

Get the L-BO30. The true 30's really seem to be slipping in quality lately. Between the dimming problems, lack of IR filters despite being &quot;true&quot; and the problem with the button sinking into the laser the true 30 isn't that great.

I would get the True 30mW from DX because even though the button got a little wiggly, it seemed to fix itself.

and the IR shouldnt be a problem because its only 30mW anyways

How about durability and portability?
If I drop each on the floor what would happen?
and the B030... would I be able to keep that in my pocket?

and Razako, will those batteries work with:
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2031 ?
(I'm already having that charger shipped for my dilda)
If you look in the comments you'll see it charges CR123 also.
I just want to make sure voltage is right or whatnot

The B030 probably will be fine if you drop it. When I dropped my True 30 it completely fucked up and I had to take it apart and fix it up.

They won't work with that charger. The cr2 charger is made for charging 3V rcr2's and rcr123a's while the L-BO30 takes 3.6V RCR123A's.
