    Have CNI-style lasers gone out of style?

    I just realized I haven't been on this forum in over a year. Things have changed so much while I was gone! Speaking of which, one thing I noticed is that people seem to be straying away from CNI-type lasers. I remember NOVAlasers, Optotronics and Laserglow being the most highly recommended...

    New purple laser isn't a dot

    I thought most 405 nm lasers were single-mode?

    Official specs of BDR-209 diode?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the manufacturer is making these diodes exclusively for Pioneer under an agreement not to disclose the information. Some OEMs do make units exclusive to one customer. For example, CNI produces the Hercules series for Laserglow and no other company. How likely is it...

    questions about "301" and "303" lasers

    Thanks for all the information. I must admit that the Sanwu hosts look especially nice. I really hope they'll make more powerful lasers in that form factor.

    questions about "301" and "303" lasers

    I know that these lasers are pretty popular among some members. They're made by a number of different companies but typically have "301" or "303" in their name. From what I could tell, these lasers are considered crap, but many people still buy them because of their low price. The hosts also...

    Official specs of BDR-209 diode?

    It's my understanding that the BDR-209 diodes are presently the most powerful single-mode 405 nm laser diodes available. But from what I could tell, the BDR-209 is technically the Blu-ray Disc drive marketed by Pioneer Corporation. I could barely find any official specs about the diode itself...

    Lazerer defunct?

    I don't think it's a huge loss, at least compared to the LaserBTB closure. Several of our members have had problems with Lazerer: http://laserpointerforums.com/f41/quick-review-lazerer-com-meh-73798.html http://laserpointerforums.com/f41/my-recent-lazerer-experience-84723.html...

    Lazerer defunct?

    I've noticed that the Lazerer website has been replaced with a message saying that their hosting account has been suspended. Did they go out of business?

    Consider using Flickr or Imgur. They are a lot better than Photobucket in my opinion.

    Skylasers Future?

    I just found out about this. I've never ordered from LaserBTB but have heard nothing but good things about them. This is really sad news. :-(

    Epcot's Spaceship Earth transformed into the Death Star last night | Blogs This news is several days old, but I don't think it has been posted here yet. Anyone know how powerful that green laser is? :D

    Sci-Fi lasers the legend of Eithan

    Very sad to see things turn out this way. I never ordered from Sci-Fi lasers, but it had always seemed like a reputable company to me.
