The website LaserPointerStore looks pretty good, it has nice prices, but i've spotted some grammar mistakes on the FaQ and the reviews seem kinda weird, can someone confirm that it's a legit site? If it is i will get the laser tommorow.

There have been a lot of problems with that reseller reported recently--- no or bad customer servic, lack of communication and very slow delivery being reported most often.

Will cost a little more than $50 but have a look at high quality manaufacturers JetLasers and Sanwu Lasers web sites ---much better quality products. See: https://www.jetlasers.org/index.php and https://www.sanwulasers.com/

^^^^^^this^^^^^^^
The stores claim of great customer service is a joke.. The owner claimed it here on the LPF as a starting point by the member name by "Tommy"
But as Encap said he will not honor any issue's or make you eat the cost of shipping back to him which is crazy stupid expensive so it's a win win for him..
Now the Thor has the "potential" to last and isn't priced to expensive. Do not get their Pocket meter though if you ever reach that point of wanting one.. It's toy novelty worth $15 tops..
Where else have you looked for a Thor? and are you in the US? It makes a big difference to where members can steer you..

https://www.sanwulasers.com/product/304blue What do you think of the 1600mW one? I really wanted like a really powerful 3W one from the site i pointed out above, but apparently i won't be getting it from there, if i get it from there tho will the delivery time just be long? Will i eventually receive it?

Hey! Im from Europe, Bulgaria to be exact, my budget is around 80 dollars plus shipping, i just want the best laser money can buy for this budget, thank you tho. I checked out jetlasers and sanwu, they are good resellers aren't they? the prices are just a bit high but i stumbled upon this one: https://www.sanwulasers.com/product/304blue the 1600mW version to be exact, less powerful than the thor but i guess its because its higher quality? Thank you so much for replying rn, i really need your help since i wanna purchase the laser as soon as possible because i know the international deliveries are long, please help me choose the best option :) Thank you!, btw the shipping cost on laserpointerstore is free for me

He's in Germany and he just bumped his sales thread.. "Elektrotechniker" is his forum name..
I believe it's a C6 host made from a kit from Survival Laser's and i'm pretty sure every part from diode to driver is brand new and not heavy used parts from laser projectors which are in the Thors and Gatting gun types..

Alright sure, is that the best one for the money? i've seen a lot of reviews like the youtuber XM360, the thor m2 looks nice in their opinion, you've been here since 2015 so you have so much more knowledge than me, i just want the best laser the most powerful and best one for my budget, thank you for helping me find it.

I dont know seems kinda risky just sending money out to random people especially giving my credit card info... whats the bad part about the sanwu lasers?

I would not get a 1.6 watt laser in what is essentially a 303 style laser host. It is not enough heat sink for that much power. Those size hosts are normally reserved for 80 mW 532nm DPSS lasers, 200 mW 650nm lasers or 100 mW 405nm lasers.

I can see your worries..
Well he's a LPF member in good standing as far as I know and you have Paypal protection just incase..
Just a suggestion but at that budget your only options are the Thor..
