Sr. you are right, the tittle may be considered kind of offensive, I deeply apologize, that's wasn't my intention at all. The point is that I was working with other providers of laser diodes, and well..., taobao and ebay are not a reliable sources, that was the reason that I was asking; I'm going to change the tittle, and hope that anyone deosn't gets offended by this, BTW Jordan Ramey is an excelllent provider, I recommend him for the new guys. Have a nice day.By searching first -- you would have seen the recent thread on THIS SAME topic. You should have also seen Jordan's rep here. and would have just waited a bit.
when threads like yours and the other members does some ( small) harm --
that is regrettable...some others will not read all and have an incorrect idea about the sellerby reading only the title.
please consider making an edit of this thread and its title, especially. -- anyone new here may only see the title and think that DTR is not a great member and seller of quality parts AND takes a LOT of time making tutorials that help members like you-- he is NOT required to do that.. his pics are super and he answers all questions rather than asking you to do some homework on your own and thereby have NO NEED to make a thread at all.
best wishes- and have a great holiday.
