    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...

    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...

    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?

    anyone have experience with Insanity Lasers?

    There's a company called Insanity Lasers that seems to have recently popped up. I frequently see their ads on Facebook but couldn't find any further information. Their pictures indicate that the lasers use the same host as the "SDLaser 303" ones. But other than that, I'm a little suspicious for...

    CNI developments?

    I've heard reports that CNI will stop shipping portable lasers greater than 5 mW as of 2015. However, I couldn't find any secondary sources on this; the CNI website doesn't mention anything about this change, and the only other source comes from an LPF member who says he has been in contact with...

    price drop on Hercules and Aries series from Laserglow

    I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but Laserglow recently dropped the price on its Hercules and Aries series of green lasers. This information probably isn't useful as Laserglow doesn't ship portable lasers to the U.S. anymore, and that S-KY has better prices, but I thought I'd throw...
