Just a suggestion, but when you ask a question like this, it is usually a good idea to include links...but I was bored, so I saved you sometime...

Sourcing Gate $47.39 200mW 532mW

Budget Gadgets $118.08 200mW 523mW

But from the looks of it on the Budget Gadgets site, you have an option of 50mW, 100mW, 150mW, and the 200mW 532s all for different prices. The Sourcing Gate 200mW might actually be the 50mW or 100mW mentioned in the Budget Gadgets site...I am not sure though...

I also found a very close lookalike, probably the same host in question, from O-Like:

O-Like $120.99 200mW 532mW

But as I have heard before the rule of thumb is a $1 equals 1 mW in 532nm.

This is definately not true for all, especially for the lower powers (sub 200mW), but around and definately above 200mW that is pretty close to what a decent laser will cost.

Instead of spending around $50 to $120 on something you cannot tell for sure is a true 200mW 532, I would recommend going with a decently priced Rayfoss (Link) or O-Like (link above), around $130. Yes, you will have to wait for them to ship from china, (just like you'd have to wait for Sourcing Gate or Budget Gadgets) but the quality of the laser is so much better than any of those huge stock money saving websites.

Just some info to help you choose...Good luck finding the one right for you!

I've ordered from sourcinggate. I ordered two lasers, a 532 and a 650, both o-like "cute style" in appearance. Was pleased with both purchases.
