cool. THanks for letting me know!
I think there's much more behind the choises WL make'sWell this is the way I see it(now that I looked over their site)
They only released the "Inferno" and "Luna" because common, a company selling only blue and green in their most popular laser being the "Artic" and "Krypton" wasn't going to keep them in buisness for a long time.
They came up with the other wavelength's so customers who already both from them will return and make them a profit and more people will chose them since they offer a more variety of wavelengths.
I personally won't buy from WL, but Cheesy if you want im fine with it
Heck, im going to be spending more then $200 for a 5mW 405nm
How can you compare a DIY market to a mass market ?You can't argue that WL's marketing is above average for laser companies even if it's a bit misleading, they do control an overwhelming portion of the market. They can't just let that go by saying "oh btw guys our ads are a complete lie"
Im sure this has been mentioned before but am not 100% positive.How can you compare a DIY market to a mass market ?
Sure you took the route of comparing it to other markets.... but that's not the point right ?
There are way more expensive company's then Wicked lasers. Price per mW. ''Look past the advertisements )
Think about it.
Yea haha, and you thought people were mad enough when their laser was under-spec. You just wait and see how angry people are going to be :beer:A few things here, obviously their claims of "the most powerful" is BS, I have a 500mW 405nm, I had a 1W 650nm at one point, I am getting a 3.3W 445nm, all for $700.
Also their customers are gonna be really PISSED when they see the divergence on the "inferno", I can't wait to see their reaction :crackup:
Probably freezing cold. In average temperatures, my 1W Arctic gets slightly warm after being on for 5 minutes.No one posted their promotion vids yet for these new WL lasers?
For the 405nm it says unlimited duty cycle. So you can leave it ON till batt is dead? In which temperature conditions?
The krypton has CNI modules...WL makes decent lasers. Their DPSS green modules used to be from CNI but at some point they switched to cheaper stuff.
Their marketing has always been over the top and their prices are high but tbh there's not much to complain about as far as their products are concerned. IMO their hosts are kinda cheesy but I'm not really into lightsabery designs... simple and utilitarian is good for me.
Some say their customer service sucks but I've never had to deal with that.
The first Evo "pro" I bought back in 2009 was actually really nice (that's when the module was CNI).
There's no need for all the trash talk. If you don't like them, don't promote them. Shrug.
I agree with you, if you are confident about your products and their quality why is the point in lying?The krypton has CNI modules...
I think it's great they finally came out with red and purple for all those people who like to collect the SIII. Keeps people interested in lasers.
Most people who buy lasers aren't really interested in all the technical aspects, or building their own... they just want something that looks cool, and works.
It does continue to amaze me how easily they lie in their advertisement/marketing... that in itself should be reason enough to never buy from them.
