Thank you for the thoughtful and immediate replies Photon Master, again Sanwu lives up to their brand name of supplying super-powerful, well-assembled lasers in sleek designs. I am definitely looking forward to buying my pocket laser, it has been hard to wait until Black Friday to check if Podo will give deals.
I also came across a very strange website that seems to be selling either knock-off clones of Sanwu lasers, or for whatever reason an actual second retailer for Sanwu lasers that are much cheaper than the actual SanwuLasers website for whatever reason.
This is the website that I'm talking about, and the specific listing (I can't post links because my account isn't old enough, just remove the spaces in the URL and search for the website).
LaserPointerStore - Sanwu Pocket Listing:
https:// www. laserpointerstore .com/products/sanwu-pocket-series-laser-pointer/
In case the listing gets taken down, I have taken a screenshot of the store for Podo to check out if this does happen to be someone trying to steal business from Sanwu. I have attached that screenshot below. They also claim to be offering free goggles (unspecified as to what OD rating or what wavelength it is for at all), batteries, charger, and shipping on orders for the Pocket series. All for 30% less than the Sanwu official website. Very strange. I would love to hear directly from Podo about this.
I also attached a screenshot of the collection of Sanwu products that the laserpointerstore website is claiming to sell, again all offering some discount off the official price, usually around $20.
I'm still not entirely sure how to tag a member, or if I did tag Podo with the reply at the top of my post, so if not would someone mind asking Podo if this is legit?
