Default Help choosing lasers/Companies

Hello,

I am looking to purchase a couple lasers for personal and educational use. I have done extensive research, however, I have found myself to be more confused after looking them up. I am a teacher so my budget is unfortunately limited. I would like something I can have fun with and possibly use in the classroom if I can get the eye protection worked out.

I am looking for a green laser pen in the 100-200 mW range and possibly a violet laser as well. My budget for both would be in the 250 dollar range. I was considering the E2 Evolution Fusion 130mW and the E3 Elite Lunar 100mW both from Wicked Lasers. Other companies are fine, these are just a sampling of the type of lasers I am interested in. One of the main things is that I would like the actual output to be close to what is advertised.

They real problem is I have no idea where to order from because everytime I think I have a place I find very negative things said about them in researching. I have heard Wicked is really backed up and you are lucky to get a product soon if at all, along with the scam theories. Someone mentioned Thinklasers.com but I have read several accounts of poor service. The Dino site appears to be a joke so I am not sure what to think about them.

Is it possible to find something along the lines of what I'm looking for, while staying on budget, with a relative certainty I will receive the order?

Thank you very much in advance... Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

i personally wouldnt order anything from wicked.. their lasers are over priced and under powered. try o-like.com or rayfoss.com.

Thank you for the reply. Both of those companies have lasers in my range, so thank you. Rayfoss.com only refunds half of the price if the package was confiscated. I don't know how worried I should be about that. O-like.com also looks good, but their website is incomplete. None of their tabs seem to work.

Thanks again... I do appreciate it.
