Hi all. Made a few posts already, but it was gently suggested that I introduce myself here for good manners, so here we are. :)

My name is Kelly, I'm a 44 year old IT guy living in Virginia, USA. I've always been fascinated by lasers and had no idea that the handheld market had gotten so big. When I learned what was going on in the market I started poking around. I bought a blue laser that's already had issues (1 day old no less!) and I have a JetLasers PLE-Pro 520nm 70mw unit on the way that I've heard nothing but good things about. Should be a good unit to have for star-gazing activities and just general cool factor.

Looks like a really good forum full of knowledgeable people. Looking forward to learning lots.

Thanks!

Thanks Encap. The search function at the bottom seems to be much better than the search link/function provided by the forum software at the top. It returned better results. I'll keep that in mind going forward. :)

Welcome! :)

Yes, the search at the bottom is much better, it uses Google, which is a hell of a lot better at searching than any built in forum search could wish to be.

Welcome Kcobean, can't go wrong with JetLasers. You'll be more than happy with your unit for years to come. If you can, after you receive it, post your thoughts. It's always nice to read what other people think. Enjoy and be safe :)

Welcome again and officially. ;)

You will have a lot of fun here and wonderful time as an awesome community is here on LPF. Good choice to go with JL.

And BTW I do not think portable/handheld market is as big as I wished it to be. Especially I miss more unique colors in handhelds and more power typically in DPSS (even at higher prices and with larger hosts holding more batteries). If there is any portable at 532 nm far over 1 W with great beam specs and duty cycle let me know, please. I'm hungry for it. :D (And yes, I know about Optotronics RPL II.)
