What is your favourite blue colour? Having just built a pl450b I like it a lot better than the violet 405nm. As soon as something above 450nm becomes affordable(463nm, 473nm, 488nm) I'm going to build one.

seems like some color spectrum charts list 405 as blue and some as violet so I lumped it into the blue category.

480nm. I had one of those 473nm sample diodes that dual lined at 476nm and 480nm, and the color was breathtaking.

I love my 469nm Laser. It is just a jaw dropping color everytime I turn it on. To someone who has owned a 473, having a 2W laser of very nearly that power is breathtaking.

463 is around 200 now but not far enough from 450 imo :) ill wait for the prices on the 488 nichias to drop, I got some time to kill I think though.

Im going to look into 473 prices now actually that's a good idea.

Yes 445 is a nice color still nothing wrong with that at all.

While I like both 473 and 488, they do not look like true blue to me.

405 - if scattered from metal - mystic color
450 - solid
473 and 488 mixture of blue and green, give a cool feeling.

I really cannot say enough good things about my 469nm. When I turn on a 445 I enjoy it, but when I turn on my 469, I just sigh contentedly.
