I read a thread decrying them, so I've decided to roll the dice and order from them. I wasn't expecting amazing performance, so I ordered a 20mW 405nm, 5mW 650nm, and a 30mW 532 nm. Basically, the cheapest laser in each color category. I already own a 55mW 532nm Optotronics and a 100mW 650nm from Olike, so those will be my baseline.

I don't have a power meter or anything. This will be more of a review of DD than the product, as I saw many mentions of extremely long shipping times, bad customer service, and orders just plain not received. I used an Amex, so if they screw around, I'll just cancel the charge. The whole order came out to a little under $25.

Stay tuned.

I noticed a coupon code for $5 off a $15 order, and tried the live chat to see about applying it. No response there, so I sent an email. We'll see how long that takes.

Edit: So I finally received a response about 53 hours later, which isn't 24-48 hours as they claimed. They said I can't use my coupon code, which is false, as I successfully applied it on the site. So I've asked them to cancel the order, and I'll reorder it with the coupon. We'll see how that goes.

Haven't paid them anything. I'm not an iDinor or whatever member.

They never responded to my last email asking if I could have the coupon applied. I just used the live chat to cancel my order, and placed a new one with my coupon code. I was told I'll receive a refund in three business days.

So, order placed on 4-21.

So I got it today (5-9). I didn't check my mail Saturday, so it could've been in there as early as 5-7. That makes 16-18 days from when I placed the order. Very reasonable for something coming from Asia.

As for the units themselves, well, what can I say? They're the cheapest models they offered, so I wasn't expecting a lot.

If you guys really want pics I can post them, but the hosts are plain jane, and my little Canon powershot isn't going to give a great idea of beam quality.

All in all, great buying experience, great customer service, live chat was very fast, and fast shipping. I would definitely buy from them again.
