Default Another "should I buy this" thread

Hey all, I've been lurking and wandering around the forums for a few hours now..and hopefully I'm going to buy a laser pointer soon!

I was probably just looking at a 50mW-100mW green laser (as this IS in the green laser section..) and maybe some protective glasses for, say...a budget of ~$50? Is this doable?

I did some searching, and according to the Review Compilation thread, kaidomain was an OK place to get lasers.. so would this one be ok? If you guys think it might be a little under spec, thats alright, as so long as you think it might have about 50mW..

I saw some suggestions for lazerer too, but also saw you guys are having a flood of supposedly great review from them (for their 5% back IIRC), are they good or not? Should I go there rather than here?
EDIT: Or maybe from here? http://www.laserpenshop.com/Green-Pe...s/lgr195s.html

Also, I couldn't find much info on safety glasses here, other than they are pretty damn expensive. So, I ask, would these be ok?

I always make the longest initial thread posts :/ Anyways, any help would be much appreciated!

Those glasses will work. But just barely. I would not trust them to protect my eyes. But, I use my eyes everyday, so.... *shrug

Rather than taking a chance at buying a laser from a cheapo China drop-shipper (wholesaler). Go with a respected company like o-like, Lazerer, or Rayfoss.
My recommendations:
o-like 50mW
rayfoss 50mW
lazerer 50mW

Good luck and remember that you only have one set of eyes, protect them.

Bumping for justice.

Also, so I don't burn my eyes out using the ones I linked to on amazon..
