To imbed a youtube video put the code ONLY (in this case mJ7cDiiHFO0) between [yt*]and[/yt*] where you have removed the *.

It will show up like this

It is hard to tell visually only, but that laser does appear to be overspec. It is quite common with the 5mW DX ones.

That's how it tends to go ;)
Don't forget goggles! A dilda is extremely powerful and even a weak reflection can destroy your eyesight for good.

I usually don't recommened Dragonlasers as Laserglow and Optotronics are the best in the high-cost laser category, but for goggles DL are good and fairly cheap.

With shipping and so on it may add up a bit still.. but if you want to become a laser hobbiest, you are going to spend A LOT of money.
Don't think about the price compared to your laser, think about the price compared to not having the goggles.. you may have to live with a serious handicap for the rest of your life because of a second of carelessness with your laser. Even if they are able to treat your eye and make it better, it will probable cost at LEAST 1000 times what a pair of goggles cost.
