Default Nova X125 Clearance Laser

Just got my nova x125 in the mail today that I ordered on the clearance sale last week. Im not going to be able to do a full review quite yet - still waiting on my glasses to arrive. Im putting this up here now to say that the lasers on clearance seem to be top quality still. What I can tell you so far is that the beam is straight and I still got a highly overpowered unit with no scratches. Average output - 142.4mW, peak output - 152.0mW. So for those that are worried about sub-par quality on the clearance sale, don't be (saw this in another post). I am no expert, but I feel that I got a top quality product at a fraction of the cost here. I will post pics and a better review when my saftey glasses get here. (cant wait)

Were you expecting it to be curved?

I think he just meant parallel with the body...

Good to hear though.

I was referring to a crooked beam caused by an off center diode. The only reason I mentioned this was because I read someone stating in one of the nova sale threads that the products would not be premium units due to the inventory clear out. The whole reason I put this small review up (more to follow) was for anybody considering to make a purchase during the sale. So, no, I did not expect the beam to be curved. I expected a high quality CNI pen and thats what I got.

I picked up an X125 as well; great unit, very impressed. If these are somehow less than top quality - I can't see how.
