I heard from someone not long ago that is " If you want to judge whether a store is reliable or not , just google it, the former the rank, the more reliable it is."
So, when I wanna know which laser pointer company is the best,I searched the keywords "laser pointer", the results were as follows:

No.1 laser pointerpro laser pointer
No.2 wickpedia of laser pointer
No.3 wicked lasers laser pointer
No.4 HTPOW laser pointer
No.5 eBay
Does it mean the best company is lsaerpointerpro? How about the other?

1. Terrible
2. Haven't heard of them
3. Not great
4. Terrible (You've mentioned them a bunch of times, in groups and on their own, do you have something to do with them?)
5. Depends which seller...?

How old are you?
Your friend is an idiot--that is not how you judge any company or product by what pops up first on google--use some common sense--google is not a substitute for a brain or the ability to discriminate/judge quality of product or a company selling or reselling retail products.

If you google Sanwu your get links to the Sanwu web site. Sanwu makes and offers good products.

You are much better off buying from a Company that actually makes/manufacturers something, if possible, rather than reseller/middleman web sites who make nothing at all.

Look here for guidance: http://laserpointerforums.com/f41/guide-company-should-i-buy-97936.html


Try the LPF search function at the bottom of the page for questions and reviews.

Re: Proper 16340 Batteries for my 445nm 4W Laser

Well, seems you have something to do with sanwu?
I wrote the company guide, Jastin. Sanwu is by far the best-qualiy maker of diode-based handheld lasers. Please read the guide if you'd like to see why.

Hpow and LPP are both awful scam sites with super overpriced mediocre products.

If you can't figure out how to use a search engine don't use one.
As I mentioned before--What pops up first on google is not how you judge any company or product -- use some common sense--google is not a substitute for a brain or the ability to discriminate/judge quality of product or a company selling or reselling retail products.

You the one that first mentioned Sanwu, so I mentioned they are a good company
If you don't want any answers or opinions why bother to ask?

Look at the thread Sta made, it is a good starting point: http://laserpointerforums.com/f41/guide-company-should-i-buy-97936.html
It lists several companies that many LPF members have had good experiences with as well as bad ones.

Guys, he's a HTPOW spammer, he's mentioned them a bunch of times and his "Homepage" on his LPF profile is set to HTPOW. Probably trying to boost their search rankings.

In the majority of your posts you mention HTPOW in some way. Why? They're definitely not where you want to buying your lasers.

Sanwu doesn't show up because they're not as good at marketing as places like Wicked Lasers or laserpointerpro, though their products are better. Most people don't realize that places like HTPOW that put labels on their lasers that say something ridiculous like "30000mw" are simply lying about the laser power.

I remember when I first started looking at handheld lasers I thought it was crazy that places like Wicked Lasers (who do make fairly decent lasers, they just jack up the price way too much) were charging hundreds of dollars for 1-2W lasers, but other places were offering "100000000mw" lasers for $20. These are, of course, just novelty lasers that won't last long and certainly don't emit 100KW. Nevertheless, the companies that sell junk like that are successful because they appeal to average consumers who want "the worlds most powerful handheld LAZER that u can legally own made out of AEROSPACE GRADE ALUMINIUM!!!!1!" and can't discern between a high-quality legitimate laser (such as the ones made by Sanwu, JetLasers etc.) and the cheap stuff HTPOW, laserpointerpro, and all the other rip-off laser companies sell.

I mean, just look at this listing:

HTPOW High Power Laser Strong Powered 30000mw Blue Laser Pointer 445nm The World's Most Powerful Brightest Strongest Lazer

Any company that photoshops their product into Daniel Radcliffe's hand probably isn't trustworthy. :)

Good detective work! Makes sense, nobody is that stupid except on purpose. I was thinking spammer or troll but trying to give him the benefIt of the doubt.

HTPOW is just another one of thousands of Chinese laser reseller web sites misrepresenting every product they resell + charging absurd prices for junk lasers attemping to rip off/cheat people by deception and misrepresentation.

There isn't anything on the HTPOW web that is represented honestly/accurately or worth buying at the prices they charge.

Called him on it a few days ago too, decided to dig a little deeper tonight and confirmed it.

Agreed, they are a scam site and should be completely avoided.

I saw this thread before anyone replied. I was hoping it would just go away maybe report and ban. How is this thread not obviously bullsh1t to you guys. Seriously stop responding to these. Report, add to ignore list, move on.

LMAO:san:
That takes the cake for the most ridiculous laser site I've seen. Here's our $60 thor M for only $350, marked down from $650 and we photoshopped harry potter holding it. We also have a picture with a giant mech suite guy holding it with the words 'widely application'. What a bunch of clowns. They should be ashamed of themselves for giving honorable Chinese people a bad rep.

On September, bought a blue laser pen 5000mw from laserpointerpro , it is still working very well, I feel that the company not a liar
Have you actually measured the power? Chances are it's nowhere near 5W.
