So, when i bought this laser from Tmart, i knew they were shady and sold crap. I knew i wasn't going to get a 200mW 532nm from them but i bought one anyways so i could see just how far off the laser is from off from 200mW they actually were.

I went to a good friends house to use his LPM. With fully charged batteries, the 200mW peaked at 100mW and settled at about 90mW. FAR FROM 200mW !!

Now, while i only paid $35.86 for this laser, it sucks knowing that they are selling these to innocent people who expect it to be at 200mW. :scowl:

Im really not going into anything else for a review since this is only running at half power from what they say. If it was remotely close, id do a nice full review. Here's a few pictures i snapped while on the LPM.







Buyers beware !!!

Forewarned?

Id try to get a refund if I were you and buy a proper laser.

I debating on getting a refund but it really doesnt matter. I think i might make this my experimental laser...might take it apart and mess with it =)

I do have some proper lasers...just got a nice 532nm #300 from ISQ that metered at over #400-#420 for $160...nice deal. I have a bunch of others as well.

the "forewarned" goes to newbies that feel the need to ask about this laser

how is the quality of the host? You could always change it into a 445nm and have a 100mW green module left over :D

I want to hear about the #300. I didn't see a review, but if you did do one could you post a link?

Thanks

To be honest - I think this was a good deal :)

You got a 100mW green laser for $35....pretty decent if you ask me.

...Now, of course, it's probably all IR. But still, in theory, 100mW for $35 sounds pretty good!

No review yet, I only messed with it for a few minutes so far. Maybe tomorrow if i get a chance. I can say it's nice. Good weight of host, its focusable, mine hit 440 peak and settled at 400. Took it to a friend that owns hundreds of mw's in lasers...he thought it was sweet for the price. Awesome for the price
