Preface: Before ordering these lasers I was in contact with Max, regarding the possibility of getting a 50mW-100mW 532nm module only for one of to project idea I had namely being RGB lasers of sorts, and they came through with letting me purchase the module, plus I bought a 50mW Black Cyber 532nm laser.

Also because I had ordered through email and not through the website, my request for LPM documentation slipped through the cracks, for both the Cyber and the module, but Max did email me the rough LPM values for both, the cyber was 65mW, and the module was 110mW, which I presume was without IR filter, with everyone else seeming to get 10-20mW of IR that puts the Cyber at 45mW pure green, and the Module at 90mW pure green.

Packaging: Same packaging as everyone else, bubble wrap envelope, with the laser box inside of a green wax paper.



On to the important stuff!

The Cyber:






The laser is 140mm in length, and 25mm in diameter.
Except this one is painted black (Obviously).

It is somewhat focus-able just nowhere near as focus-able as the 660,445,or 405nm lasers we builds.



A nice sturdy feeling on/off tailcap switch.
No idea if it's water-resistant or not, and I don't intend to try it.

No charger or battery, almost wish I would have ordered one, since I have to steal one from my 445 laser to run it.

Price was $46.99US.

PRO's:
The unit feels solid, the tailcap switch doesn't feel as flimsy as some of the other tail caps we use. The beam is ultra thin, the dot is perfectly round.

CON's:
The white front piece of the laser seems to like thick glossy card stock, if it ever falls off I might look into cutting a piece of plexi glass to the correct size with a whole in the middle and epoxy a IR filter behind the hole, then epoxy the entire thing in place of the white piece.

Beam shots!!!!!


Comparison shots:

Left to right: LPF June 445, Cyber 532, 360mW 660, PHR-805t 120mW

Reverse order comparison

Left to right: Phr-805t 120mW, 360mW 660, Cyber, LPF June 445

Over all Opinion:
I'm pleased even if it has that little bit of a split of the beam, the beam is still thin and bright, slightly visible in the day and definitely visible at night. Plus I get a nifty laser splash (if that's even what it is) at close range.




The Module:



Now comes the module which breaks down at three points:



First threaded point, is the Laser diode/driver with the KTP crystal epoxyed onto a brass piece which is epoxyed to the diodes housing.

Second threaded point is the culmination lens which is adhered to the brass fitting.

The final brass piece hoses the focusing lens which can adjusted inside the housing, or you coud just rotate this last brass piece to adjust focus, but as for right now the beam is tight, and the dot looks good, so I'm not gonna mess with it.

Price for the module was $42.99US.

Con's:
The driver has a slight thermal issue with the transistor on the back of the board (Q3) where it heats up almost instantly.

PRO's:
The entire module is pretty sturdy, and aside from the transistor issue, which I'll have to add a heatsink to.

Sorry no beam shots, but When I tried to compare the module with the Cyber I couldn't tell the difference.

If this laser follows the design of all the others, under that white ring there is actually a tip where you can screw on the cheap greenie diffraction tips;)

You might correct, It has a threading under the white pice, either way though I'd still like to place a IR filter at some point.



Plus it looks like that white piece was just a sticker.

Hey, do you highly recommend the cyber? I am definitely thinking about it! Nice review and pics. I'm guessing in real life the beam looks better as always and the pic looks amazing. Also Since battery and charger doesn't come with it if you order it separately they put them into the same box as the laser?

They put the battery and charger in the box. The cyber series is a really good one in my opinion. My 1.2w 44nm cyber is still working great.


Nice Review! +1

Probably going to get the grenade style 100 mW after seeing good stuff and a lil cheaper than cyber...

Pretty awesome, Max told me that they were sold out of a 100 mW laser i bought (stick style) and said he would go ahead and just give me the cyber version with no cost added. pretty awesome service from this guy! Replied very, very quickly!

Same thing happened to me before with him. They ran out of 1w cyber, so he gave me the 1.2w (metered at 1.3w) cyber.

how is the divergence of the cyber? does the dot stay small at long distances? also how has it held up since you bought it? anything wrong wit it?
