Ok...I'll bite.  I have never heard anything good about this company.  I am sure they will send you a laser once you pay for it.  However, I would insure they guarantee the power rating and will accept a return if it does not meet expectations.  The problem with all of their lasers is their recommended duty cycle/run time.  They all have short run times due to their inferior method of keeping the laser diode cool...basically none.  Also, is the max power based on a peak or a sustained average power rating.  Meaning that their 400mW laser may peak to that power setting for 2 seconds and then settle to 50mW's for the remainder of their 20 seconds recommended run time.  Personally, if I were to spend that kind of money I would spend it at one of the more reputable dealers.  My 2 cents...

If you have the money for a high powered laser then buy it from a reputable dealer.

i wouldnt really trust any site that sells green pointers and red pointers of equal power at the same price. and they have some pretty high powered pens.. i didnt think it was smart to put 100mws of green in a pen host....

There are plenty of companies here that have a reputation for high quality lasers. You're more than welcome to take the chance, but most people here would recommend paying a little more for products of guaranteed quality.

Furthermore, even if your unit is up to spec, their warranty lasts 90 days and they give no indication of a typical diode's life. If it dies shortly after that 90 day period, then the lower price definitely isn't worth it.
