hey guys i'm pretty interested in this laser. any advice before i purchase it? i asked the seller and he said that there would be no problems with ir emissions as he said that an ir filter was mandatory according to regulations.

Save your money - shop at DX and buy the exact same item for less, and from a reputable company.

There's a guy selling 50mw green samsung diode pens with IR filtering, but they are ~£60.
I second using DX though.

Don't make SenKat come back! We have proven time and time again that the units from DealExtreme DO have IR filters. We know the quality isn't good though and they probably have the same quality IR filter in them from the 5mW Pens up to the "200mW" Pens. Others have shown they are lacking a proper IR Filter but if you stick to the pen lasers I'm sure you will be fine. ;D

I tested my True dx 50 mw with a nightvision monocular and could only just make out the beam
I couldnt even see a glow from the apature itself

My Nightvision uses a snap on IR flashlight to iluminate total darkness areas.
Its only the really overdriven ones that people get worried about

Every DPSS laser will emit some type of IR....it is inescapable ! The DX lasers do not emit more IR than any one elses' lasers do - I have seen so many different reports on the higher end DX units that I am reserving judgement on them until I personally get a hold of one or more to test. If IR is a huge concern, stick with the color RED, and go non-dpss :)

Probably stick to 50mW max with the DX lasers since the quality is so low they might die at an early age so you don't want to be spending too much. But for mW per $ value go for the True 30mW.

The seller is in Singapore and only has 2 feedback. If he says IR is not a problem then he's probably lieing. He might not be lieing for sure but I wouldn't trust him at all. If it's you first laser then I'd save up and get one from a respected company or get a leadlight whcih is only the 5mW. My first was a 55mW so it's your choice.

Hi ngiapy! I do a lot of suppling for the astronomer pals I know, and they often trade up, so as soon as I get a traded in 30 or 50 mW laser, I'll let you know! I don't think it gets cheaper than that! ;D ;D ;D
