No, we do not simply hope all of our customers do not have LPM's, how pathetically stupid do you think we are?

The main point in a good business is honesty.

And if you check under the product specs for the modules, it says that the specs may be wrong and will be remedied shortly.
Your doing a great job Lemon as I mentioned in the other thread,

I don't know what some peoples issues are, we all know O-like is a great site with good customer service, the site is run by the same company with some extra colleagues, promising better customer support and also LPM readings for all lasers sent out + free shipping!

What could be better?

@ZRTMWA

You are treating this like a whole new random site, and assuming everything is dodgey? what's your problem, it's run by pretty much the same people at o-like, and they are being nice enough to confirm all updates with us, ask for advice and suggestions and taking them on board instantly...

I think you should be more worried about other sites, rather than picking up on silly little things on a new site that has just been released. As lemon said there was a clear bar of text saying the specifications may be wrong, and changed all other issues instantly.
Please, please you guys are understanding me all wrong. I feel I have to play the part of the cynic. I am just curious about a new business. Now that I have your confirmation about the 200mW module, I plan to order one.

We do know that O-like is a great site and they have great product support/ customer care, however sometimes some of their products fail their reputation.

I don't think you are pathetically stupid I'm just wary of the fact that other well known and trusted companies promised the same things you are and failed to deliver.

I did not feel like I was "picking up on tiny little things" but if you percieved it that way I am sorry. I was just trying to help any new customer that was planning on buying a 6x SF-AW210 who would actually expect it to put out 300mW.

Again I am very, very sorry if I upset anyone I was just trying to learn warily about a new company. Thank you.

@ ZRTMWA - Yes I bought the 200mW module I haven't decided what host to put it in but I have a few on hand and yes I have an LPM when I get the module I plan on learning a few new tests and doing each to the best of my ability(e.g divergence ,TEM style, and of course testing power output on the LPM)
OK thanks, it will be good to learn more about these modules.

See, I didn't know that first sentence. I figured it but it said 11.9mm so I was skeptical.

I think that second highlighted sentence is wrong. It is true that green output is at most 25% of the IR diode output but that thing about surrent is wrong I believe. If your IR diode was 100mW (not mA) then you could expect 20-30mW.

I guess I'll just have to wiat until some other people revuew their orders.



So did you order the 200mW module from beamcheap? Do you have an LPM to test it? Thanks.
Well Actually is it not wrong, 100 mW diode would draw 100-110 mA.
They are about 45 % efficency, at 2V operating voltage the current draw in mA roughly equals (or surpasses just a little) the output power in mW.

@ "lemonwonder":

Can you already confirm that the 200mW green module is the "old-style" module that can take up to 4.2V or is it the newer DX-style module that's rated up to 3.7V? I'm guessing (and hoping) it's the former, but since it states on your site that the specs may be incorrect I'm not sure...

Hey cmak, tried live online support?
Brendan (lemonwonder) himself is the operator, and a bloody good one!

Good job Brendan!

There are other operators, I just prefer to answer all calls if I am around, then the other operators can read the chat archives and learn off them.

I can not confirm any specs as of yet.

I hope they are the old-style although the pictures of the green modules are now changed to the new, DX style modules :(

I guess Brendan can just tell us when he recieves EzPk0970's 200mW module from the factory.

EzPk0970 requested a refund, so he won't be getting the module.
But we have two other laser orders, so reviews from them should pop up soon.

They are the new style.

you should consider making a separate section that sells Laser hosts (for DIY projects and such)... like the laser without the innards (well, I think you get what I mean :D)

that's just a suggestion though... what you have done already is already a very good demonstration of really "raising the bar". More small-ish websites should definitely follow this example *cough* rayfoss *cough* lol

I already know what my first order will be:
200mW green laser module.

Should be in a months time if everything goes OK.

I cannot wait...
