Default Re: Which of these green lasers should i buy? $600 budget

So I ended up ordering a Jetlaser. The few reviews i've read were favorable, and the company appears to be very organized, and quality oriented. I contacted "jetlaser" member (Gray) and he was very helpful.

So i'm getting a 300mW over spec green (with 1 year warranty) for well within my original budget.

The price/quality mental calculation was difficult on this one and I suppose i'm taking a slight risk. I'll let you all know how it turns out next week!

Default Re: Which of these green lasers should i buy? $600 budget

Just to finish off this thread...

I ended up buying a 250mW 532nm "PL-C" from Jetlasers, by contacting member JETLASERS. And i must say i am very pleased with it. The host quality is very nice, it feels solid, substantial, tight, and the functions are smooth. The heat sink fins are nice and deep. I don't have an LPM but other members have described the PL-C 250mW as putting out around 300mW.

I paid less than the price advertised on the website, + $25 for glasses and $30 for shipping. So it was well within my initial budget.

Their customer service is excellent. Email responses are prompt (all 56 of them in this case), and their concern for my happiness as a customer was genuine. There was an initial delay in getting the laser built due to the group buy. But communication was always constant. And there was a significant shipping issue that was resolved quickly. Overall A for effort. A+ for quality. Thanks Gray!
