I ordered a SF501B 445 1.3-1.8 watt Blue laser from Sci Fi lasers on 11/8/15 and I know several other members have also got lasers from there, I was just wondering about how long it took to ship out and how long it took for you to receive it. I live in the central U.S. and paid the extra $17 for ecopost shipping.I have all good things about this company and was hoping to get my laser this week because I'm off work till the 1st of December.I have emailed him a few times and he says he will get back with me. I imagine he's just busy and hasn't had a chance. I've already got plans to order a couple more.

Hi, poppy37 I used his standard shipping at$10 I think and it took about 33 days so im not sure what the ecopost shipping is. Alot of posts have been made with the same questions and when I ordered I was willing to wait but yes it can get pretty frustrating but it worth it at the end. Since he,s in Isreal they have holidays that we dont and can slow it down. He is busy all the time but he will get back to you.

Thanks, I knew he was in Israel and I thought it would take a while. The wait is killing me, I really want to try it out.

I know! its a killer. I bought the 1W+ 445 and believe me its worth the wait but now I want to order yours or the 2W and then starts the waiting. Ive had alot of fun with mine and yours being 400mw to 500mw more is going to be great. Listen just make sure you use this time to get glasses if you dont have them as Im sure you have been told and read already. This laser is bright.:)...and mighty strong

I still have one Zbolt green pointer that is still working since 2011, the test died, I just recently bought a few of the cheap. 301s from China just to mess with but I wanted something more powerful and reliable that's why I went with Sci-fi lasers,

Thats cool, I got a few overspec 301,s for $9 each they are fun. When you get your SciFi be sure you give a post. Enjoy be safe.

I will post pics and a review as soon as I get it the only thing that really worried me is my USPS mailman, he constantly delivers my packages to the wrong address, my next door neighbor who keeps anything she gets, this has happens twice in the last month. Complaining to the post office doesn't do any good, I just have to keep a close eye on him when I have a package out for delivery,.

This is a sign for delivery isnt it? Is it the same mailman usually? If it not why is it so hard to have the post office hold it for you to pickup. There is a thread going on now about the USPS, post in on it and im sure you will get advice. Some one on this thread im sure will help

Generally in the one month zone, since you paid for the EMS shipping, probably a few days before the 1 month mark. Cheers. :beer:

Lead time has been averaging 2 weeks and once the laser is in the postal system it should arrive in 11-14 days if customs doesn't drag their feet. Avg wait time from sci fi seems to be around 30 days. Unless you ordered during one of Israels plethora of holidays. You can ask Eitan to tell you when the laser has shipped. Israels postal service isnt very efficient and the tracking information is often unreliable.
