Default Laserpointerpro cheapo high powereds?

LT-301 1000MW 532nm Green Light High Power Laser Pointer Kit Black - Laserpointerpro.com - Here's a "1W" greenie for $80. They sell 200mW for $16, 500 for $22, etc etc... If I'm not mistaken, a lone diode would cost triple that at least. Just how underspec'd are these lasers?

If you can't see it for what it is then you deserve what you get.

See the "what companies to buy from' thread. LPP are a bunch of shameless scamming assclowns. In your link they are LITERALLY selling a $8 ebay laser 301 for $80. A fair and balanced 1000% markup in price.

These 301/303 pointers are all <100mW, some maybe make it to ~140mW, but that's rare. Do some searching using the search bar at the bottom of the forum and check out the thread Razako suggested above.

Git rid of one 0 in each of those power outputs and you'd be closer to what you are really getting!

What everyone else said above.

The $8 laser your link goes to says price is $1769 @ 95% off $79.99--- 5% of $1769 is $88.45--even their the math is bogus.

Laserpointerpro is just another one of thousands of Chinese laser reseller web sites misrepresenting every product they resell + charging absurd prices for junk lasers attemping to rip off/cheat people who don't know any better by means of deception and misrepresentation.
There isn't anything on the laserpointerpro web site that is represented honestly/accurately or worth buying at the prices they charge.
