Im looking for a decent laser, But I dont know where to start.
If someone can point me in the right direction that would be great!

Colors, Blue/Violet/Green
It must be able to burn things.
Looking to spend under 130
Must have a key! (Not necessary, but looks cool!)

I know people suggest others to build lasers, but I want to start off easy.
But I dont want to deal with the hassle of soldering etc.

Sorry if i posted in the wrong section im new :D

Well, there are many reviews of different models on the "reviews" thread, go to the main page at http://laserpointerforums.com/ and scroll down to the reviews thread. There are other threads that deal with specific types, (red, green, blue) as well as a thread on companies, and other stuff, ect.

It pays to read what others thought of a specific model before ordering so you can know if it has a fairly good customer satisfaction rating first.

You are probally looking for something more pricely than the economical model I reviewed, but what I got for $24.99 back in 2010 still works great, so if you want to check my review it is at -

http://laserpointerforums.com/f52/review-532nm-green-laser-pointer-50mw-led-shoppe-57962.html

(just realize I have not bought anything from them since back then, so hopefully they are still as reputable as they were back then)

Awesome! I bought 1 just like that, Was very bright, but didn't burn ):
Thanks!

What do you think about Lazerer, are they a good seller? I was thinking about getting their Blue 1000mw laser.

no problem !

I'm not familiar with "Lazerer", but I put that word in the search box for this site and it had a lot of results, including one that had a warning against buying from them.

Put Lazerer in the search for this site and check it out and see what they said in that thread.

Lazerer is a good seller, they send their lasers w/ a power reading so you know what you get. The most recent post about them is one of few negative; they usually have pretty positive reviews. Laseglow, Optotronics, Jetlasers, Lazerer, and Skylasers are good sites to buy from. If those exceed your price limits, Try O-like and Rayfoss. Its hit and miss w/ O-like; they sell some overspec lasers, and they sell some sub-par lasers. Rayfoss isn't a great site to buy from, but its not too expensive.

Awesome, thanks guys!
I will most likely get a laser from lazerer.
Otherwise I might just buy from a user on this site!

Thanks guys. I appreciate all the help!
Also if anyone is selling any laser i am interested price anything under 150!

I'm glad you shared your experience as I was not personally familar with Lazerer and simply saw that negative link from among the search results.

Good point, even the best of companies are likely to get a complaint now and then, then the issue becomes how good is their customer service in resolving any complaints.
