Hi guys. Today I want to buy myself a new high-powered laser. I've never owned any laser over 5mW's before so this will be my first one. I want to get a laser that will:

a) Be over 130mW.
b) Be cheap but powerful.
c) Have a beam that is very visable at night.
d) Have a dot that can be seen over 5 miles away.
e) Impress.

I really don't care about burning stuff at all. All I am looking for is something that can fascinate me by how bright it is at night and how far the dot can be seen from. There is one laser inpaticular that I want to get which is: 200mW transformable green laser/adjustable [OLV6200] - $129.99 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products
Can anyone tell me if this laser will do the job? It is at a great price but will more than likely be under-spec. Can anyone tell me if I should order this one from O-like ar should I get the same powered 200mW one from rayfoss? Thanks guys!

another user here bought that laser and found it to be overspec. Something like 260mW if I remember correctly. Look for user DJNY

As far as questions C,D and E any green laser over 30mW will do what you want.

Ha thanks guys. Is it worth buying from O-like tough? I heard that their products aren't as good lately. But I will still buy it just because the price is great!

O-like is fine but for a little more you may be happier with a PL-C 150 mWs 532 from JETLASERS- way overspec and a professional weatherproof laser that comes with glasses/charger/focusable/FDA/IR filtered etc and one years warranty. great customer support and if you can wait til thier next GB you may get a super price as well-- about seeing the dot from many miles away--not going to happen unless you are talking about some one else seeing the laser-- ie like signaling when in distress etc. but as far as YOU seeing the dot --forgetaboutit. for seeing the beams just go to my profile page and look at my pics in my albums.
