- This particular unit seems to emit some sound while it runs. It isn't very loud, it's faint honestly kinda like a buzzing sound. Any clue what this may be?
- Even though this unit has a 5 second delay for safety I can see dimly some green light coming out before it powers completely on. Is this normal for lasers? Custom made ones?
Let me first start off by saying I am very glad CNI decided to build this custom made unit for me! I know 520 lasers are becoming pretty common, but I have yet to see this color, let alone one in a PGL host so this unit is pretty unique in my collection CNI quoted me $390 in total(including shipping etc...).
Color difference 520 vs 532
Honestly, as soon as I turned this unit on I thought I had received a 532 laser & was like *oh crap*. I remembering reading some LPF posts on how 520 & 532 can't be easily seen unless they are next to each other, and honestly, I agree with that statement 100%! Once both my PGL's were next to each other I could easily see a blueish-green tinge on the 520 while 532 looked yellowish-green. The colors aren't very difference but you can tell them apart if you look hard enough
Shipping from CNI's factory to me in California was done with FedEx International Priority & ran me $70(as previously listed). The total transit time was 3 business days(including Memorial Day & the Weekend). I would of wished it would have gotten here a little quicker(since it says next business day to the US) but it isn't a big deal, as long as I have my PGL. The box the laser was sent it could easily protect the device even if it was thrown around. The pGL was protected into bubble wrap, and was surrounded by large black foam pads on all sides :beer:
Overall im statisfied with this unit. The laser feels strong & heavy and everything works as it should, apart from the front shutter which dosen't turn & the small sound it makes while it runs The price was a little steep but I had the extra funds so I decided to go ahead & purchase it anyway! Once again, another great laser & will definitely buy from CNI next
Below are the pictures of the unit along with information about the laser! Thank you for looking & please answer the questions on the top of the thread :thanks:
:thanks: Another wavelength in the green spectrum done!
