This is my first review due to dunno how to express very well in English.
However someone encourage me to do this so I will give it a try.
If any suggestions just kindly let me know.

I bought the laserbee 5W from Jerry on 2/27 2013.
The meter got very good feature including datalogging and Zero control and a nice, durable enclosure with power switch.

Compare with older version of laserbee 5W, on the back of the unit has no more compartment for 9v battery or any stuff.


By the way, I tear off laserbee trademark sticker because I got the label a little dirty.
As you can see as below, without trademark sticker, but doesn't affect its function at all
and appearance is still look good. I would like to keep my stuff always look clean.



here is a video to meter GF1 built by Blord:


To meter 2.5+W Dominator as follows:

datalogging:



I consulted some members here to make a backup USB cable in case original is broken
The backup USB cable's length is a little short like original molex 4pin cable.
However I can use USB extension cable and it works perfect as laserbee's original one.


*Pros: Datalogging software is very easy to use and meter works great with very visible display.

*Cons: a little pricey, not wallet-friendly.

Thanx for watching!!!

a laserbee lpm is a very solid product. i've always found jerry to be easy to work with and i've always gotten top notch customer support from him too. since he's in canada i can only give him a 9.9 - were he in the us it would be a solid 10 ;-)

Hey cheech...

since you're selling everything... why don't you
move to Canada so I can get that "solid 10"....:D

@ troublesome...
nice first review...:beer:

BTW..too bad you damaged and removed your 5W
LaserBee faceplate label. If you like I could send
you a replacement of the upper part of the label
that is missing free of charge.

Thanx a lot. How kind of you to say so.

I will let you know if I need your help in the near future.

Thanx again for your effort to build such a great LPM.

I see you have used my builds for the measurement. I hope the values are in line what I have measured. :)

Thanx for your reply!!

As you mentioned before, Ophir LPM has a 5% tolerance and I think diode's power will become worse when time passed so a little different is no problem. Your product is perfect!!
