The prices for green lasers have dropped significantly over the years it seems. How long do you guys think it will take for blue laser pointers to take a significant drop, because I really want one badly ;)

Do any of you all have a blue laser pointer? If so I'd love to see some pictures!

I would also like to know when the blue prices will drop, and can the blues burn anything or is it purely for effect, not performance.

I think it is mostly for effect. Maybe the Spyder 40mw can pop balloons. I don't have a blue, I could never afford it, but I think they could be expensive for a while yet, the 473nm DPSS is not used for much else so the demande is very low.

Hi jetson333 - Good question and as you have said greenies were hugely expensive just over 2 to 3 years ago where a 50mW would have set you back a couple of thousand dollars....much like the blueies cost right now.

So with that, I would guesstimate that a 40mW-50mW might cost you a few hundred dollars in that time....maybe even cheaper.

Technological improvements are moving so fast that you might be able to get hold of a handheld 200mW blue laser for the price of a 40mW is today...............hoping............needing.........wishing........lol ;D

I attempted to post three photographs of my blue laser pointer using the {img} and {/img} tags (curly brackets replaced with straight brackets), but received the following message:

Once you get to 20 posts you'll be able to post links on this forum. It was designed to keep the 1 post spammers from posting their unsavoury stuff on here. ;)

Hope this was of some help to you....
