Perhaps it's a good idea to move on to the present, and away from the past.

That's what improvements are for, right?

Would love to see LPM's of WL's current gen lasers. :beer:

Here ya go :)

hmm.. interesting.
Anyone know what is the specified current for the diode they are using ...
Perhaps they are overdriving it .... its quite... un-WL like for their lasers to overspec lol

Well if anyone here still remembers WL BEFORE the Arctic scandal... they were a pretty good company, always overspec units (See my Spyder II RX in my sig :san:) They just kinda ruined everything with their terrible management in 2010... and it will take a VERY long time to re-earn what they've lost... although it's good to see that they are getting their act together. Nice Arctic Smeerworst :beer:

I cannot help but look very suspiciously at a member who has not posted in the forum since October of 2010 and then "returns" to the forum feeling compelled to tell us how much better WL is now.

I am especially suspicious when that members "review" contains superlatives and exaggerations

He hasn't thought about us for 2.5 YEARS and returns sounding like most of WL's marketing copy

Sounds like somebody got some sort of "deal" to get a positive post on here

Peace,
dave

**EDIT** -- When you say you got "another Arctic" are you comparing this one to your memory of the one you had to RMA way back in Aug of 2010? Also, are you comparing this laser to the three year old Spartan from your review?
psst, hey those great builders over at LPF are killing our business, we will give you $50 off if you go there and write a positive review in hopes of tricking some to come buy more of our products,

I love rebuilding several of the WL hosts into quality lasers

Besides, your wife only had that one affair
All of her lies and deceit were simply supporting that one affair
OK. I know that she lied to you fairly regularly before the affair, but that is all in the past
She's not cheating on you now (that you know of)
Her friends are all telling you that she's not cheating anymore, right?
She didn't take another man to bed last night, did she?

You should just forget it and trust her

Peace,
dave

There is no pleasing some people... First this thread was about WL being under spec, then smeer posted a vid showing his to be over spec and the next following complaint was "I bet its overdriven" tisk tisk.

Regardless of power, WL is the father of lies. This is undisputed. And lying is a hard habit to break.

It's all about the host look. When my E3 405 konked out on me it wasn't much of a loss since it was terribly under spec, but I went ahead and popped fast tech green module in it and it is now one of my personal favorites. All of this arctic 2010 talk is giving me PTSD...

This. The host and the 100% duty cycle are the main reasons I bought an Arctic. I also like how the lens caps protect the lens from debris and moisture. And I wish someone made shirts saying "I survived the Wicked Lasers Arctic 2010" I'd probably buy one.
