Ok, well...This is my first review, so i hope i do well.

Shipping & processing:
Ok, i ordered my laser on 6/13/11 and it was shipped on the 19th, so no complaints there. Arrived at my house in north-east Florida on the 30th. The box had been marked "Flashlight for gift, $20" which seemed to clear customs very well. Costomer service was very helpful and responded to my email within 24 hours.

The Laser:
The laser arrived in a silver cardboard case. The laser was securely packaged and looked in perfect condition. Also included in the box was a wall-charger, UltruFire 18650 lithium-ion battery, and 2 lenses, cross and line. The laser also came with good instructions, in "Chinglish" of course but very understandable. Some people have said, (including me before my laser arrived) that they didnt know wich way to insert the battery, for those of you who didn't receive instructions, the battery is inserted negative (-) end first and positive towards the tail cap.

The battery was already about 3/4 charged so i have been running the laser like that. I also ordered another UltruFire battery and goggles from RayFoss on the same day which arrived the 30th also which i am currently charging.

The laser has incredible power even at 3/4 battery. I was able to pop balloons from over 30 feet (As far as i tried) and burns almost anything any color (even white) instantly. As far as the output power, i cannot test it because i have no LPM. The beem is very visible even in daylight. The focusing head is fairly hard to turn and i accidentally burnt my hand while trying to focus it, but after about 30 minutes of focusing and testing, it eased up a bit.
The laser is waterproof (tested) and everything on it seems very well crafted. The laser is quite heavy and feels sturdy. I'm sorry i do not have any pictures for my camera is broken at the moment. Sometime when i can i will post some beam-shots and other pics. Overall, I highly recommend this laser to anyone who has sufficient knowledge and equipment to operate it. In the hands of a newb, it could be very dangerous.

Edit: It's been about 11 days now (still working great) and i have discovered a couple nice features. As the battery drains the driver increases power to the diode to maintain a steady output, unlike other lasers i have had. Also, as the diode heats up and decreases in efficiency, the driver increases power to the diode, also unlike other lasers i have owned.

I took my laser out on the 4th of july and i think more people were paying attention to it than the fireworks, LoL.

Also....Beamshot! sorry that it is in such bad quality, using a terrible camera.

Well, I never did any balloon popping with mine, but I did put holes in a black garbage back from about 20 feet.

Nice review:beer:

Does anyone own the 1w version? (tactical real 1w 445nm laser) :undecided:

Just wondering if anyone tested the power with a LMP

Nice review.. and I was thinking of building a laser or using a kit...

but seems the O-LIKE 1w tactical real might be a better choice for the price.

Anyone want to give me advice? Thank you! :whistle: :)

Sorry to bump an old thread but I had to say something. I received a dud laser (the 1w Power Rock) from O-Like. I returned it at a hefty 18$ shipping rate and 2.5 weeks and numerous emails from me to them later, I have not heard anything back from Susie. Before she started ignoring my emails all together, she even wrote me back "why do you complain so much". Well, Susie, it's because I just spent 160 on a bullshit laser and you're return policy is a joke (as in you don't uphold it). She's shady...

It´s sad that Susie, who had a lot of benefit through O-Like promoing from members here on LPF, went for the bad path. Read many complaints about them during the past months.

You can´t go wrong with laserboy above this post :drool:

I would buy one of your lasers before ever dealing with No-like again!
Your blue ice lasers are only $120.00. That's only $15.00 more than I paid for a 400mw 405nm.

I believe that's a hell of a lot better deal!

Considering the amount of business both no-like, and rayfoss have seen directed to them through this forum, I'm amazed they don't make more of a effort with referral customers.

In my case, I told "Susie" that I was a member of this fourm, and she acted like she new nothing of it.
I told here that a negative review might translate into less sales.
She told me, " go ahead and put one"

I did, and so far 475 have looked at it and 0. Replies
From the amount of posts I see here, I don't think it hurt there business at all.

MrLaser: Nice review by the way!
