So before I buy my first laser, I want to know which company is the best? I recently got two companies one is called Scifi lasers (which is on the advertisement of the front page) and Sanwu lasers(http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/fs-sanwu-laser-shop-r-g-b-handeheld-lasers-price-drop-silver-series-93166.html) . Please help me decide which one to get because I don't know a lot about lasers and what I want is a BRIGHT BEAM and can be VISIBLE(which I don't care about burning power) also most importantly duty cycles (Sci fi lasers do have 60sec on and off) (Sanwu can be turned as long as u want also more compact than any Scifi lasers) from ur experience which is the best preferred in EDC(every day carry) thanks

Green is the brightest to the average human eye so you will probably want to go with that color. Beyond that it is like shopping for a car to a large degree and it is your personal preferences in the different features of the different lasers. Size of host, design, output, price, duty cycles if any and so forth. Plus where do you live as some companies are not able to ship to certain countries.

One of the most helpful things you can give us is your budget! I can suggest all kinds of lasers from cheap china crap to lab quality handhelds in the 4 digit range. Next would be color and then power or vice versa.
So what lasers are the best and what do u suggest is a "lab quality handheld"?

No handheld laser will perform as good as a lab quality unit.

Yup I know a few of us have received build requests from this guy.

Hello, this is my first time buying a high powered laser and I do not want to be disapointed. Can anyone build a blue laser with a visible BEAM without fog and a compact host designed to have a long duty cycle. I will pay for anything under the $$$ (edited) range. Or you can recommend me which company to buy from. Thanks
I wont be replying and I suggest others dont.

I always have a quick look to gauge the age/ responsibility of potential buyers and saw his "Can I blind an aircraft with it (guardian host) suggest me to use green or blue?" comment...:tsk:

I don't know if I'd give this guy advice on where to buy a laser just yet...
Agreed do not sell this guy a laser.

Glad I came back to see what all the vets had to say.. I was going to ask him why he wanted to carry it every day?
