Just saw the ad on top of this page....

Looks nice
$187

445nm 1W blue handheld laser - Novalasers Inc.

<1W
<1.5 mRad

Seems like they might have the dot corrected too....
We need to figure this out...

I still think the Spyder III host is much nicer.

It's actually $227, unless you have a pair of certified goggles and email them proof, you have to buy a pair of ANSI/CE goggles with it for $40, which isn't bad considering it's still cheaper than the Spyder III and these are definitely ANSI/CE certified.

I really like the sypder host....

But since these come with CERTIFIED glasses for 40$, thats much safer sounding, and sounds like a better deal

Now, let's wait for the BOOM to pass, and for the price to go down a bit and I'll be ready to buy :D

Re: Nova lasers 445nm

I personally think that while the Spyder III host looks good, I prefer the discreetness of the Alpha style host from Nova.

Re: Nova lasers 445nm EDIT

If I read that right-- free shipping is only if you buy their goggles-- and duty cycle is TBD (to be determined?) and no TEC cooling-and its a pre-order so be ready to WAIT-buI its nice to see ANYBODY giving WL some competition!!!

thanks for the find!!!

EDIT- I (and Mikeeey) erred about the Spyder 445 having TEC-has TCC instead-hak

Proof of glasses is a good idea.
This is getting scary. With out a doubt this 445nm is a big deal. Once o-like and others start selling them for $150. Were going to start seeing accidents:(

I personally don't like the Plumbing Pipe look of the Atlantis...

Availability from more than one supplier can only be a good thing as far as the consumer is concerned. These have a longer lead time than WL. More realistic in my opinion :)

Nice find, I didn't even notice :)

I don't really like the host, apart from the fact it has a side button. The Arctic looks much more solid. I do think that the specs seem to be a bit more realistic with a duty cycle that is still to be determined and a "near TEM00, elliptical" transverse mode. Apart from that, it's always good to see competition from another company.

What's with the crap visibility though? Surely >500mW of 445nm is more visible than 75mW of 532nm? It should be. WTF Nova?

The Spyder host is much more appealing even if it is bigger.

WL really hit gold releasing first AND making it look like a lightsaber. I think a lot of the geeks wouldnt even be interested if it wasn't for the appearance. I didnt even think star wars was anything special and I still prefer the light saber look. *flame suit on*

I like the host of the WL. Yes, its 9" long, but in some ways it feels more comfy when you got a larger laser. Sure its not for your pocket, but at least it looks really nice, looks mean, I love it.

Are these being provided by CNI? If not, I wonder where they get that host, because I actually like that host a bit for its safety features.
