Mkay.. so I've played with crappy ebay green laser pointers, but this is simply amazing and put everything I have seen to shame.
I can't even begin to explain how well this thing is... I swear.. every penny that I spent on this was SOOOO worth it.

Shipping Time:
I live local to where Nova Lasers is located (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
Shipping time using free shipping over orders of $200
Purchased: Morning of Wed. Oct 15, 2008.
Recieved: Afternoon Fri. Oct 17, 2008.


Pros:
- This laser beam was fully visible.. on a clear night sky the beam is SOLID.. on a bright sunny day the beam isn't as solid, but still visible.  I was able to point it maybe 50+ miles until my eyes couldn't even see the beam on a clear sky (next time I'll borrow a friends binoculars)
- Burns real quickly with a steady hand.. and some stuff almost instantly
- Can be felt on bare skin (yeah I had to test it out)
- Overspec - Peak 113.9 - Avg. 109.1 (tests done by Nova Lasers)
- Peak = 139mw - Average = 127 (tests done by me with Laserbee Laser Power Meter)
- Small standard size pen style
- Looks amazing through crystals/glass
- Point at my ceiling with all my lights off and it lights up the ENTIRE ROOM + NEXT ROOM
- Friends can see the beam + flash when aimed directly at them or near them for 15+ miles (I didnt' test any further than that)
- batteries do not shake inside


Cons:

- It came in and the sticker was slightly peeling off, but that's just aesthetics.. I could always e-mail them for a replacement sticker.
- A bit of excess epoxy that looked like a scratch, but I sent it back and it was removed by them.
- 2min cycle, but what ever... if I wanted longer I'd get one with a better heatsink
- cannot manually focus the beam, but WHO CARES THIS THING IS AWESOME
- Need glasses to burn stuff, but if you are stupid enough to use close range with it without glasses... say goodbye to your eyes


Printout of stats for Nova X100 Pointer:


Picture of Nova X100 + Nova Shields:


Picture taken durring bright day light indoors appx 30ft (lots of sunlight coming in):


Picture taken at night. Distance appx 30ft - (low lights behind camera):


Picture of the sticker peeling off when I received it (the marking was removed when I sent it back. It was epoxy that was easily removed by them):


Picture of my gf and long exposure with laser:


Playing with long exposure


My name with long exposure


LPF with long exposure


Pointing @ sky... difficult to hold still on a cold night in Toronto


Pointing @ the very top of the CN Tower. 1800+ Feet High + 1.6km away


Magnified to see the dot on the CN Tower from the above pic.

Final Thoughts:
HOLY CRAP THIS THING IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AMAZING... I LOVE IT..
Quality built and powerful as a truck.. with new batteries this thing is really really really really really powerful
I will stand by everyone else on this one... Nova really gives you what you want + more.
I love it... simply amazing.. my friends can't even believe how powerful this laser really is until I point it directly into their house from where I live.  HAHAHHAHA


ps.. if you like it.. feel free to + rep me.. I could use it esp. after all that time I put into the review  ::) ::) ::)

Nice pictures!
One thing I find a little weird is that my glasses are orange and say 190-532 OD 7+ while yours are OD 2+.

Nice Review, but one thing made me mad. The long Exposure with your girlfriend in it, Was she safe from that 100mw Green Blinding beam ? looks awfully close to it. Should of let her wore the glasses for the pic :-[

It's the time on how long the shutter stays open.  It basically means that you can draw something out in a shot or capture a person's movement... a more common picture that is used is when they take pictures over a highway or a busy street block and all you see are streaks from the car head/tail lights or people walking.

It's basically what I used to capture the ones where I drew the happy face, my name, etc... without long exposure all that would be taken is a dot =p

And it's just a camera setting? I'll have to check out my camera options (which I never do). Thanks!
