Default Green <5mW Laser from eBay

I bought this laser a week ago and arrived 30 min ago I'm happy , Anyways on to the review.

This is a good pointer for anyone who wants a first green laser. This thing is way too bright for presentations I think it can do more the 5mW if you pot mod it but I'm not going to do that for because 1. Pot modding reduces its life span of the diode 2. It doesn't increase power but it just increases for about 10 min and it'll go back to its regular output.
This laser is very solid and feels good in the hands. It has a ok beam you can see it in dark places but I haven't tried this thing out in night yet so I'll see how that goes. I lost my camera so I dont have any pictures but I have a webcam and I'll post a video later on.

This is what I bought http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWNX:IT

I'll believe the 5..20mm spot diameter at 50m distance when I see it

To be honest you get what you pay for. These are nowhere as solid as the dx pens, and aren't as good, but they're cheap
