Hey all my most recent order of lasers just came in and seeing as how I haven't found any real reviews on
this model, I will do one for you all! Plus it gives me an excuse to take beamshots :D

*Disclaimer*

I did not do this review for the 5% off deal, this is an honest review. It has come to my attention that Lazerer
products sort of fill the review section and people are getting tired of them. Sorry if this thread is adding to the influx :\

The Laser Model: LZPL 200mW from Lazerer.com!

Anyway I just wanna say some things about Lazerer first.

Pros
Fast Shipping
Good Customer Service


Cons
They forgot my safety goggles in the order!:thinking:


But its okay I'll just "be careful" doing this review.... NOT!

Seriously, I have an extra pair. I'm just making fun of noobs who think like that.
I've emailed Max and I'm sure this issue will be resolved promptly :)

Anyway, on to the laser!

______________________________________________________________________________________________

The laser came in this box...

... which inside contained...

... THE LASER! (Not pictured is the power certificate, but I'll show it later :D)

Here is a picture of the nice laser label on it.

Finally I have a laser that has an accurate label! :crackup:

I did opt for the 3.7V 16340 battery because, "Hey, why not?"

One big question I've noticed that is asked about the Red Lasers from Lazerer is battery orientation. This host is
case-negative. That means the battery's positive terminal goes in first and the negative terminal makes contact with the tailcap.

Here's a few pictures to illustrate.

So lastly here is the power certificate that I purchased just to be sure of the power
output since I don't have an LPM... yet.

As you can see, this specific unit outputs 214mW of 650nm light. Which I am very happy with!

I had been hoping or a noticeably over-spec unit, but hey in this day and age of
over-seas and domestic manufacturing, anything CLOSE to being on-spec gives me a smile.


Now that you've seen those photos, its time to start writing about the laser.

The Host

I really love this host. It feels very well built and has a comfortable wait to it. The design
is very ergonomic and feels great in the hand!

The black finish looks fantastic! The white sticker is pretty neat as far as contrasting
colors.

And it kind of "glows" from the red light when the laser is in use.

Here's the host's size in comparison to the Lazerer 200mW LZCB Cyber (Which will be reviewed very soon!)

Performance

This laser is fantastic. The focusing is unbelievably smooth. My only gripe, which is so
petty and not at all a problem, is that when the laser's head is focused in all the way it is not focused to
infinity.

The laser's output is insanely stable! I love this laser. I am very very happy with my purchase.


Overall Thoughts

I got this laser on sale for $30 from Lazerer. For ~215mW of lasing power, $30 is unbeatable!
The host feels, looks, and is built fantastically! It lights matche with ease and melts plastic like its nothing!

It is advertised as waterproof, but I don't feel like testing it. This is my first purchase of a high-powered laser
and maybe later on I'll test it. But I don't plan on being underwater and using this or using it in a spot where I may
drop it in water. As long as it keeps moisture out, I'm happy :)

Now the always popular...

(^ This was taken with the laser's focus expanded... just for a change of pace)

Personally I love 650nm-660nm reds. It's just something in the way they're so stable and have such tight round beams!
