Default So..... Refunded!

Just got an email confirmation of my refund from Laserglow for $539, whew!

I will never touch this company again until they step-up their customer service game. Sent them an email today asking for when the refund should be processed and never got a reply(no surprise).

Anyway, now that I have an LPM coming in I might finally be able to get myself a 589nm Spartan from DragonLasers. I decided to skip 635nm as it still is quite red and I am aiming for getting the main wavelengths now. I do pray mine dosent come in under-spec though

I was debating wether or not to get a 405nm PL-E but would rather get my yellow in ASAP before they become even rarer!

Just an update.

-Alex

Nice. You should be quite happy with a spartan assuming you get a good one. There seems to be something like a 75% ratio of good ones to 25% underspec/defective/otherwise bad spartans. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst is my opinion on 589 spartans.

And yeah...I definitely wouldn't recommend laserglow for ANYTHING outside of their 5mw green penlasers. Their lyra series is still quite nice and the price is reasonable for the quality you get.

Too lazy to start building. Although, I could put the Spartan module inside a PL-E module, maybe?

Hello monkeydan,

It's the "50mW" 589nm Spartan from DL. It originally was $419, and overnight jumped to $529! No way I can afford that
