I'm about to make my first purchase from Nova and I was wondering how much brighter will the x100 be than the x75? I use my DIY red for burning so I'm not really looking for a burning green, I just want a really strong bright beam. Is the x100 worth the extra 50$ in this regards?

There will be barely any difference in brightness between the two, remember that for 4x the power, you get twice the brightness. Even though the brightness difference will not be much, I still think you should get the x100, it is always fun to burn with a green laser.

You don't need to focus it for burning. I had an X105 (Same thing as X100) and I could light matches from a few feet with no additional lens. It could also light fuse and pop balloons, and even light black powder.

Just FYI, something that I didn't notice earlier is that standard shipping is 9.99, but it's free for orders over 200$. So that means that the X100 alone would be free shipping, while the X75 alone would not.

Well there you go, think of it as a $10 discount! Also don't forget to use this forum's discount code to get 5% off, it's warp5.

Wow, thanks a lot styro! I had no idea about the discount code. Now the cost is down to just 198$ shipped ;D
