Is there any reason, say the lab lasers on dragon lasers, most of them are in mW, even though they are 1200mW or more?

you usually refer to mw until you get into double digit watts.

what sounds cooler, 1 watt or 1000 mw? It's marketing.

Even though 1.2w and 1200mW is the same thing, it *does* sound like a beaset when you say "on THOUSAND two HUNDRED milliwatts" ;D

Apart from a great marketing gimick, it does help standardize the units so people without any background in lasers can compare them...
