Wow ZyzzFan666 you are getting spanked around here. Not to be mean but you are sort of acting like an ankle biter so some members are whacking you with a rolled up newspaper :D
Anyways, it is good that you are shopping around but you have to get a feel for the main 5 factors of features verses quality verses price verses power output verses wavelength(color)
Some colors are much more intensive to create than others or there are more suppliers or demand of a certain color than others.
Usually the higher the output the higher the cost.
Special features cost more because of labor and cost of components.
Quality is pretty straight forward, you get what you pay for most of the time.
A suggestion, decide on 2 colors you are considering. Get a piece of paper and start listing the possible laser that you want. This way you will have all the information right in front of you to compare the lasers to each other. You might want to do this on a PC or laptop as the full pages usually give more information also.
Good luck!! :)

Thanks a lot L.C! I recently acquired a 303,532nm as a gift & I guess I am satisfied with its power but I'd imagine it'll be useless once I apply an IR filter as the post you referred me to says

RIP beautiful mW power :(

LC is correct in the way you are acting or rather "acting out". You ARE asking the same questions that have been asked thousands of times before and expecting everyone to answer and being very impatient. You sound like the kid in the back seat asking over and over "are we there yet?"
What you are not getting is there are countless cheap lasers and sellers of them out there and 98% of them probably haven't been purchased by us and yet you expect a direct answer for a specific unit. You also keep assuming a lot of false things such as all the power will go away after adding an IR filter.
It is extremely likely that I own more lasers than anyone here and although I could generalize about what I think you might receive it would be nothing more than a guess. I have $5 532nm that are well over 100mW at 10% IR plus everything lower AND a $5 one that is about 80mW with 95% being IR. It makes it extremely difficult for anyone to guess what you would receive and you can't actually know what you have anyways without an accurate meter to verify. This goes for any wavelength you can think of too.
You are obviously young and impatient and we get that but these are NOT toys and we have to protect this hobby as they are constantly abused due to availability and people being uninformed. I would venture to guess that most people who own a laser (this forum excluded) don't understand or don't care about the safety issues involved. We can't take the chance here of not laying down the law to anyone that joins and your statements show us loud and clear that you aren't getting it.
You can change though. Calm down, stop the inappropriate language, demands, breaking the forum rules, read them and all the safety information and look in "LPF Search" at the ton of other threads from others that have asked the questions you are asking and then humbly ask for some help if needed.
Just because you are specifically asking about one laser that someone else hasn't asked about doesn't mean you are asking a different question. They all lump together here as the same basic question. If you can't understand that then we can't help.
You may think I'm coming down hard on you but the reality is I'm probably one of the nicest members here and I'm telling you this for your own good. Take a step back and try to see it from our point of view;) I'm rooting for you to get it so think about it.

I like the things you say, and you are right that I am young and impatient (not stupid though) but that is why I came here to seek advice. You may not know the laser I have but your guesses/things to check for are damn better than mine. So it's worth hearing a safety lecture. I'm glad you care, but all my other threads have ended with matters being resolved but there's always someone trying to revive it lol

If you have enough funds, I'd recommend hanging around here a while and checking the buy, sell trade area. A bunch of great deals on very high quality (and power) builds by members pop up all the time. Just make sure you know your safety.

Damn, ok. Is there a particular thread where this happens or should I just keep an eye out every week? I may not be in a safe enough environment to get anything over 150mW
