Shame on Biglasers.com---and I thought WL was bad/unethical.
They should know better then to misrepresent a product.
They are clearly attempting to suggest it is a WL Arctic with the name Arctic, pictures, and a price $2 less than a real one from WL.

Dispute any payment made and return it all to Biglasers and demand a refund.

The good news is, you can get the same 1W 445nm blue laser including Aluminum box, 5 lenses, batteries, charger and beginners goggles from Laserer.com for approx $205.00
See: RIFLE 445nm V2 - Full 1W Focusable Blue Laser Pointer

In fact you can get a 1.2W version and all the goodies for only $20 more.

Good luck in getting a refund.

I noticed that afterwards too- but saw it was out of stock as well. I even e-mailed the site. Max, I think it was, replied and said he had no idea when they'd be back in stock. That is, the 1.2. The 1W is in stock as of now it seems.

I did file a dispute so we'll see what happens.

The whole site seems to exist solely to resell the same exact products available elsewhere, at lower prices.

Chances are, even cheaper products are being sold by them as genuine.

Domain registry is by proxy. Smells like a scam through and through.

This company can be reported for any number of violations.

493nm laser? Strange colour for 493 :na:

All their lasers, pictures and descriptions are directly ripped from CNI, Lazerer and Wicked.

They don't even bother photoshopping out the logos on the e2.

I got scammed too I guess. I can't reach anyone with email, phone, or chat. I found this site too late...

I ordered the 200mW GX5 "GX5" High Power Green Laser System 200mW - 500mW - BigLasers.com

and after about a month a laser arrived that looked like the one shown in this thread. Maybe no problem as this is the GX model at 300mW and $300 price tag. Includes the case and filter kit. Nice bright laser compared to my 50mW pen pointer but no popping balloons!

So I measured the output and it is only about 70-80 mW.

So I will give them a day to respond and then work on dispute/refund.

Not sure, hard to judge the diameter, and I don't remember the exact length of the cheaper clone, but that's what it looks like to me.

Here are some clones:



Here's a side by side video of an arctic and a clone:


Take a look at pics in this thread:

http://laserpointerforums.com/f52/rifle-host-arctic-lookalike-1w-800mw-lazerer-com-side-side-arctic-65932.html

To me it looks like you might have gotten the clone, and without the top top.

If that's the case, you got scammed out of at least $100.

Then again the clone one is better than the weak Arctic
