To near to after xmas for me and with all the teething problems with the Spyder II it's worth waiting for the glitches to be ironed out. ;)

They need more than 15% off. Spyder is not worth the $ at this point. I think it is overated. I do admit the size is nice. What exactly is the diode size and what % is it run at? I don't see any of this info on their site.

I wouldn't buy one. They're overpriced. The front lens AR coating scratches off in your pocket because they decided to stick a huge glass element on the front, unprotected. They aren't fully waterproof, they aren't shockproof.

The blue one isn't even worth it. It's TEM30. Who wants a TEM30 laser for $2000...even if it's blue? You can buy a 100mW TEM00 473nm module for less than that! 15% makes no difference as you already got %5 or possibly %15 off when you used a wickedbucks code.

I bet the green costs under $200 to make, and the blue's cost under $500 to make. LG has a 20mW 473nm for $700...if i'm not mistaken?

They do look damn nice though. I'd buy just the case ;D

As you decrease nanometers, burning power gets every so slightly greater.
