Would these lasers actually burn?

No, maybe, and no. None of those lasers are nearly as powerful as they say they are.

I can't answer your burning question, though. (pun intended)

Do you have safety goggles? If not, get some. You only get one pair of eyes, don't hurt them.

I've only ever seen one 5,000 mW (5 watt) laser that was legitimate. It was an IR laser, and I think it cost like 600$. Sure it would burn stuff like mad, but no beam would be boring.

I've seen plenty of 3 Watt 445 lasers that people have built, and it wouldn't surprise me if someone manages to build a 5 watt 445 soon, but it will be expensive.

Technically violet would be the best at burning since shorter wavelengths are more energetic.
