    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cheap and ready soldered laser.

    Cons:

    Laser is not so bright. Can not be seen good after like 4 meters. The spot seems a bit scraggy.

    OtherThoughts:

    As with all DIY parts on DX there is no manual.
    So I found out (searched the web) you have to wire minus to the pin labeled "-" and an 333Ohm resistor to "S" and then attach plus to the resistor. Without resistor the laser wouldn't stand a minute.

    Bottomline:

    I don't know yet for what I will use my laser, but I think every (mad) scientist should have at least one laser.
