Let's do a break down eh?
Do you know where Wicked Lasers's lasers are made?
They are made in China just like everyone else , as someone who LIVES in China I can tell you the workmanship difference caN REAALLY wildly vary.
A dollar paid is not a dollar received.
Now I don't personally own a WickedLaser so it would be unfair for me to judge, but from the over 3 years of buyer experience documented on LPF , WickedLaser's reputation is a bit... charred to say the least.
There are many other lasers manufacturered and sold by more reputable companies.
Such as JetLaser , which is jointly operated by one of our forum members
ONLY for sake of accuracy-- Gray is AFAIK 'lead' sales NOT JL 'operator' just yet-BUT if a vote was taken here he would be in charge of JL ---someday maybe) What Gray really is: a very honorable caring person- wants all to be happy- & he understands us much better than 99% of china- his approval rate amoungst *most* my 70 or so GB owners is 10 out of 10--
I have NO qualms about bank transferring >$5k USD MANY TIMES (7 AT LEAST) BUT the others EH mentioned are also good choices with highly rated service- almost MORE important (or EQUAL) THAN THE LASER ITSELF..
CNI , Dragon Laser - which uses the same manufacturing plant , Dragon laser allegedly gets the best batch , you be the judge.
LaserGlow , TOP of the line VERY expensive stuff , it's the Rolls Royce of portable lasers.
If you're into just the color but not the DPSS process , you can always opt for custom built lasers built by the many lasersmiths on the forum .
the 520nm diodes are quite a bit more sturdy than the 532DPSS modules so there are choices here.
good help EH-- +6 when system allows
