That being said, an dvdrw equivalent diode (lpc826, which is actually stronger) is only $6

Re: For Sale: SF501b 445nm blue laser "as is". $50

I'm not denying they exist. They were actually pretty common in the earlier laptop drives, and I've seen a few personally. I haven't mamy in any of the dozens of more recent drives I've disassembled though.

That said, a more recent Toshiba drive I disassembled did have a low power standard diode with dual IR/Red functionality, so maybe this one has something like that.
It most likely does. The one I'm offering is from a Toshiba laptop that I bought in December of 2010.

Since I've been advised to post photos of the lens my laser has, I took a couple pictures so you all can see it:

Is that a good or bad thing?
It could be a good thing, im not sure where Eitan got his g2's. I have some I ordered from china, $7 ea. DTR's are $30 I think.
I'm thinking you may get a bite at around $40 for your package. Sorry things worked out for you the way they did. Our hobby will take a while to recover from the Eitan experience.
Good luck on your sale

Well, hey! It looks like I got a good lens. I'm glad something is looking good! :p It seems that I'm needing all the help I can get!

Price reduction! Everything (laser, batteries, charger, DVD RW drive) for $40 plus shipping. That's a firm price and won't be reduced further. Waiting for PM from anyone interested.

BUMP! (For some reason, my last post didn't bump it)

EDIT: Could someone else please bump this thread? When I do it, it doesn't work. My post never goes back to the top when I bump it or make a posting.

Thanks!
Also, I'm open to reasonable offers anyone might make. If you have one, let me know!

(Still don't understand why my posts don't bump my thread back to the top).

Hi LED,
Your bump is posting, it just doesn't appear on your post list. If you log out and view it as a visitor, it will be there

You're right! Thanks for pointing that out. I'll quit worrying about it then. :thanks:

You're probably gonna be better off just paying pman or someone to fix it. Then you can either keep it, or sell it as a working unit.
