Hey,

Don't really know for sure about these, but the 200mw green that has the bigger head looks like the ones I used to get for less than $180, 150mw's were $120, (as well as a few of their other models look similar to what I was getting) but they were all questionable at best. (that seller closedup shop after only a few months, and I know why, they were all junk) I had a 150mw that went tem01-02-0-something and more about 3 months ago. Out of the many I tried, only one was any good and that one had to be tweeked to make it decent. They appear to be from the same manufacturer. (if so, hopefully they went back to the R & D department and fixed all their issues) I would love to see a review! Best of luck on them if someone is getting one. Let us know!

Thanks, Joe

For some reason it looks like a wicked site, anybody else see the resemblance with thinklasers and techlasers?

Yay, even more scam lasers. Seriously guys, these lasers are the same scam lasers that many others (including myself) were warning about well over a year ago. We're talking about so long ago that LC used to be a damn good forum. C'mon! There are a few case styles to recognize and you'll spot numerous scam sites like Spymode spewing them across the internet. I'd appreciate it if all of you could spend a little of your time burning those images into your memory so we can stop getting all excited about the newest incarnation of the 'oldest laser pointer scam in the book' a few times a month.

There was a time when at least I'd be warning about all these scams alongside a bunch of other members who had personally tested some of those models and we could all back each other up. Now I just look like a freakin conspiracy nutter.

I think it might be a bit too early to start bashing considering the fact that no one here has even bought a laser from highlasers. On the other hand you were right about the warnlaser scam and some of the stuff on highlasers does look a bit too good to be true.

Re: highlasers.com cheap as hell
 
Sorry, but I've heard this before Razako and I'm at the end of my rope for listening to it. Look at the lasers - just from the pictures its very obvious they are the same scam blues we've seen on eBay, same scam greens that were proven IR spewing on valvolo, etc. Sure, this could all be one amazingly improbable coincidence in that another perfectly honest laser company just accidentally made all their products look exactly like all the other textbook scam lasers out there. Occham's razor though...

I'd say guilty until proven innocent without question. It's not like I'm calling this company out on a gut feeling. Its plain and obvious from the pics alone. I don't have the time to go dig up the research for you though - sorry, I'll leave that bit of homework to you guys. I highly recommend you do it. It'd make both of our lives a lot easier.

I was about to post that, that's one of your videos Pseudo. ::)

Re: highlasers.com cheap as hell
 
rofl. They use the same rpl video for all of their lasers (including the reds) and the comments appear to be mainly recycled with the same person posting multiple reviews for each product.

For some reason Irvette Dicky needed to post the same comment 3 times and give it a different number of stars every time.

I bought this laser simply for watching at stars, though not much like a scientist. It's very true that the green ones are more powerful. This laser puts all my other pointers to shame. The dot is clearly visible in bright sunlight on buildings as far as miles away and the beam is very visible in the night sky. I used it every night.

Comments about above blue 30mw laser
By Ehnore 01-02-08-19:46


I got so much fun from this cool toy. It is plenty bright enough to be visible even in daylight.It has been great for that me, though my cats now turn their noses at the laser. I have used it during discussions of how to make changes to my house with my father, who is a builder. Do you have any new ideas about it?
By Audrey 01-04-08-08:11


I donít care a straw about the military or astronomical use of this little toy, but I have to admit it really helps to provide a great deal of entertainment to your dogs, cats, and even kids. Naturally, the joy would go back to you soon. A friend told me that he had been feeling great because his little daughter now went to anywhere the pointer leads her to. A tomboy begins listening to the master of the toy now! haha..
By Elwood 01-05-08-21:10


If the one youíre looking for is a bright efficient laser, this may be one of your best choices. Though most buyers would rather a slow shipment than second-class product, but this one is really quick in shipment and works well.
