does it is a good quality product? I mean, it is half price than DX ones, and I don't know the site.
I have already requested a Price Match for DX, but they ignored me.
Thanks in advance for all :)

update: yeah I know about price angels, actually they have a very better price, but the 5mW lasers are for selling (for my friends) I don't want an accidental blind.

They are cheap and I'm pretty sure people have reveiwed them or at the very least bought them here on the forums. They are a good company selling cheap products, however, the 200mW pen they sent me was horrible - huge dot w/ bad divergence, less than 100mW w/ IR, etc. The cheap 5mWs should be okay but they use thin metal versus more expensive ones - the build quality is less. For cheap pointers, sure they're a steal - I'd still sell them to friends, but for quality pointers, not something to show off.

I see, thanks.
I just read it, and it says: "powered by: 2*aaa (NOT INCLUDED)"
maybe it don't include the gift box, why so cheap.
someone buyed it already? I'm going to buy but sadly I don't have an LPM... :(

I got a few of these a while back, as hand outs.
Thay all put out around 30~40mW
I never tested the ir output, but all newish cheep green pointers have some ir leakage.

All & all a not bad deal, "cheep pointer cheep price".

I'm afraid of selling 40mW. Maybe they will be dangerous..?

Well, a lot of that is IR and leaks out not focused, and thus it spreads out over a "larger" distance and becomes less dangerous. Of course never point it directly in someones eye - it will probably do minor eye damage at the least if just gone across someone's eye for a short period of time (when I say minor damage, I still mean PERMANENT damage). You can specifically request from buyincoins to get their lowest powered units, I'm sure they would allow you to do that if you wish. Or, you could always carefully take apart the pointer using a vice and two pieces of wood with a hole drilled through it and then turn the pot down (I don't know what you have access to). It really depends on who you sell it to - as long as you don't sell it to a child who doesn't understand or an adult who's incompetent, chances are they'll be careful with it - just explain to them the dangers (and perhaps read up a little more about the dangers yourself - you'll find a lot of resources on the internet)

I have access to enough tools to lower the pot of a laser :D
and I'm planning to sell to competent adults.. The danger itself may be in reflections. I know the dangers as nearly 1 year researching about lasers haha

if your gona get a 5mw you may as well just go to ebay or amazon.
ebay has them for $0.99 for 5mw but they suck ass. and Amazon has some 50mw for $11-15 that are much nicer for cheap lasers
