Just resellers, probably not a scam but it's safer to buy from eBay or some other escrow that is able to refund you guaranteed if the laser arrives defective

Depends on what you mean by scam. Will you receive the product you order from them? Probably. Is it really a 200mw green? Most certainly not. As far as I can see, they are adverting the so-called "laser 303" as 200mw, which is usually around 80 mw (as green), not to mention that it's heavily overpriced. Of course, they have some other lasers labelled as 200 mw, but I'm pretty sure they are no different (incorrect mw and overpriced). If you find sanwu or jetlasers too pricy, just check oxlasers on aliexpress or laserpointerstore.com for something that is more reasonably priced. Looking around on ebay or aliexpress in general might be a good idea as well.

No problem, just keep in mind that on ebay or aliexpress they are not allowed to indicate the real power of their lasers, because in many countries anything above 5mw is illegal. So it can be somewhat difficult to figure out the real power of the lasers there.

Welcome
Always nice to see new members! Please complete your profile information when you get a chance. That way people will know where you are located, making it easier for them to offer assistance if they are nearby.

The best place to start a new introduction thread would probably be the meet-and-greet/Welcome Newcomers sub-forums. Although you could also introduce yourself with a new thread in the lounge (PL)if you prefer.

One cool thing about the meet-and-greet sub-forum (at PL) is that there will often be new threads in there talking about upcoming laser enthusiasts meetings (LEMs). Attending one of these events is probably the best way to get to know people and also learn a lot about all things laser related. .
