Hi all,

Well, Round 1 went well, so, as promised, and now that all the sleds from Round 1 are sent, (the last three to go are at least packed and will go on Monday 4th Oct! ), I can now start taking interest for Round 2 and putting names to sleds.

Please see the details in the first post of Round 1 here -

Also...

Here is an extraction video from DTR -

There is also an additional aspect to this one. I have also been offered the what I believe to be the LG 10x sleds posted here -

http://laserpointerforums.com/f38/hello-lg-bh10ls30-10x-47723.html

They were sent to me as the BDR-S06J sled and I tested a couple and a graph plotted against one of the 12x Lite-On sleds showed they beat the curve on that one 12x sled!

Here is the plotted graph provided by Bionic Badger

Of course this is not conclusive proof these are better but... We need more testing on both of these sleds to be confident about any future predictions on safe current etc, so... In that vain it may tempt some to go for that sled instead. They pricing on this one is pretty much as Mohrenberg predicted but UK shipping means they will be on offer for $55 plus $3 shipping. Not a huge saving but some. I wanted to try and get a price break but we may not qualify. Let's see how we go. [EDIT: I have been sent an email from the supplier asking for a reserved 50 number as there are other customers wanting. I'd like to say at least 25 number to reserve but this again requires a fast moving GB. If you can dive in then do so... Thanks.]

So, this GB is for the SF-BW512L and the one mentioned above, (I will get confused calling it one or the other but I'll know what you mean when you ask for, "The other", sled! )

No figures just yet as time and interest will determine these. As ever, post your interest here or PM me. Please see the other GB thread for details on how this one wil be run but in short, get in touch!

[EDIT #1] Okay, the numbers are good so this will go ahead. There are some non-LPF members that have ordered too so at present there are 50 of each being reserved for us, (Although I have said the numbers are likely to be 25 of each so there is still room for late comers at this point).

The order will go through next weekend and I will send out PMs requesting outstanding payment during the week so I have funds to place it. Please act swiftly when you receive the request. Those that have paid, thank you! Hopefully everyone is showing the correct status in, "The List", but if anyone thinks they are not then please contact me with a date of payment, etc, and I'll update. Usually, delivery arrives with me around three weeks after placing the order. Then, over the next working week I get them shipped on to you. Updates with appear in, "The List", as to shipping status too.

I'm hoping any figures gained by buyers from these largely untested sleds can be fed back into this thread or PMed to me so we can add it to the graph above. Since the ***** 445nm, we seem to be being spoiled with cheaper 405nm. This is a situation I am not complaining about!

Good stuff guys, thanks.

[EDIT #2] The order was placed today! There were a couple I've had to cover from stragglers but mainly from non-LPF members so all is good for us. The usual time delay now until they arrive here but they should be being shipped out in 12 hours, then the 6-13 day wait. I will, of course, keep you all updated! Thanks again.

[EDIT #3, 06.11.10] So, a little update but nothing exciting. I do have a tracking number and have been told that because there is a large sporting event then customs are being a little slow checking and siging everything off from Asia. I'm told this

[EDIT #4, 13.11.10] I opened a package today! Yay, at long last. I haven't gone through it to as yet to split orders up but it is now here so I'll be packaging all of them up this week and getting them out to you. Apologies for the delay but we have just been waiting for the slow cogs to turn. I'll update all in the list as the packages go out. As you're all already aware, there's no tracking on these beasties. I only say this so all are aware how they are sent out due to recent issues of responsibility. I always keep a record of proof of sneding but if you require tracking then it can be arranged but at extra cost. So far, none have gone missing so I don't Royal Mail to be letting me down any time soon on these either. Drop me a line via PM if you have any concerns but I am happy with the way deliveries have been done so far.

Here's looking forward to you seeing your sleds soon! Thanks so much for your patience, this one took a little longer than the last...

[EDIT #5, 19.11.10] The bulk of the GB was despatched today and those sent out have the appropriate legend next to the name. The rest will be out in the following days. It's been the first opportunity for me to get to the PO but that doesn't mean I'm happy with the delay. Please let me know when they arrive and any data you get from them. Either post the details here in the thread or PM me as the data gathered in one place can be collated. More to come of course... Thanks guys!

*delay things but is likely not to affect things very much. It was more of a heads up and polite informing than a, "This is going to add a week on...". Apologies if anyone has felt left out... College has been taking up my time.*__could__[EDIT #4, 13.11.10] I opened a package today! Yay, at long last.
