First of all, I live in Sweden where lasers > 5mw are forbidden by law to be sold or carried with you i a public place so until now I have only had experience with low power laser pointers.

So for my first high power laser I made the huge mistake to (despite many warnings onthis forum) buy it from Aliexpress:
Wholesale Product Snapshot Product name is 5000mw 405nm Handheld Adjust Focus Violet Purple Blue Laser Pointer SD302

Of course I did not belive for a second that it would be 5000mw, but I thougt that I would get ~100mw and that was fine by me.

After 4weeks waiting the laser arrived, and it's total crap. I could barly se the dot on my hand at night.

Ok so after reading about the varios laser buiders on this forum, I decided to go for this laser built by Blord for $100, mainly beacuse he lives in belgium and that way I could avoid the inport regulations for the EU.

I got great response on every question I had and since he has a superb reputation on the forum I were never really worried about paying in advance.

He made the delivery and gave me a tracking number within A FEW HOURS and two working days later it arrived at the post office.

I am really impressed by the build quality, it feels really solid and sturdy, not lite the chinese crap i got from aliexpress. I did cost a little more but it was well worth the money.

The blue beam is really impressive as you can se in the photo. I know someone will think it was a bad idea to use it in this environment but it was well mounted on my tripod only pointing at the chimney of the factory in the picture.

I can really recomend Blord as so many other on this forum.

Welcome to the forum hofven and congrats on your new laser. Blord definitely makes some high quality handhelds and his consistency is as solid as his reputation for quality and customer service.

It is interesting that your first forum post is a kudos to another member... tell the forum a bit about yourself...

be safe and have fun!

cheers,

Thanks

Every marketplace need it's feedback system to work and even if the seller in this case has a good reputation the least I could provide was a review of the product :)

I will "head over" to the welcoming thread tonight and make a formal introduction ;)

Cheers
