Default Purchasing Laser, Opinions Appreciated!

Hey guys you probably get a lotta nubs like me but I was in need of an opinion from you experts. I have been searching the forum and have been unable to find a definitive answer to my question.

Well here I go...

Im looking for a 532mn laser (green) laser with about 300mw of power, I would like a really well made one the will last for years. My budget is around $300-400 so I really want an extremely well made laser, with the money im spending. I have heard of lazerer, jetlasers, o-like, and your favourite here wicked lasers

Anyways I personally have come to the conclusion that these are what im looking for, I would appreciate some input on what the main differences are between these two... which is a newer model yada, yada...

Best deals! Buy Jetlasers 250mw to 700mw 532nm green Laser Pointers, portable green laser 532nm 700mw, handheld 600mw 532nm green laser pointers, portable green laser blue 500mw, 200mw 635nm red lasers jetlasers. JETLASERS.ORG

uy off 50% Jetlasers 100mw to 1000mw 445nm blue Laser Pointers PL-C right now. 300mw, 500mw, 800mw, 1000mw 445nm blue lasers handheld at better pricing than any 300mw, 500mw and 800mw 445nm 1w blue laser pointers.

I am still 100% open to all your options but my only requests are a green laser with around 300mw of at a price range of <$400 that is well made.

I hope its not to much to ask and im being a pain in the ass, but I really appreciate this!

Before you look into those particular companies. Check out dragon laser. They have a spartan 1000mw for around 230 ish.
O-like is decent. But Dragon laser is from CNI which are excellent lasers.
Even if you aren't looking for something particularly that strong all of their lasers are well made and will last you a good while as long as you take care of them.

But first off I assume you are planning to or already own proper eye protection? If not I recommend eagle pair from survival laser.
Just my 2 cents.

If you look around you can find a lot of 1W 445nm lasers all around for cheaper than that actually. Like o-like has a 445 lab module for 160 I believe.
But if you're paying the extra for the nice sturdy laser from DL. Plus Frank from DL is very thorough in responding to any questions you may have (And he is from Australia so it's easy to understand him)

If you dont know much about lasers you'll find that higher power green lasers are more expensive than other colors but they are also the most visible.
I haven't personally had any experience with lazerer but I can vouch for DL and the quality of there lasers.

Now also if you're patient enough and save up a little more $$ you can wait for a group buy and maybe get one from CNI itself for a better deal.

They're much more pricey but the best lasers you can buy quality wise are from laserglow.com.

The two companies I would recommend when it comes to 532nm green lasers are Laserglow Technologies - Handheld Lasers, Alignment Lasers and Lab / OEM Lasers and Green Laser, Laser Beam Optics, Laser Safety Glasses : Dragon Lasers
I own lasers from both companies and IMO those are your best options if you want a laser that is high quality AND a laser that will last you a long time. Both of them are more expensive compared to some other companies but the build qualities are outstanding, customer support is great and you will get a long life from the lasers as long as you take care of them.
