Extremely good price point! – 6mm 5mW Red Laser Module (3.5~4.5V) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
+ The price is the main pro. 1,68 usd is about 10 Swedish crowns
+ Bulk orders on these are very beneficial, ordering 10+ units like I did and the price goes down to around a dollar! That is like 7kr.
Cons:
- The specs were wrong, says 3,5-4,5V but I finally found out the hard way they run on a bit over 2V while giving them 4 volts burns them out permanently. I toasted ten of them.
Other:
+ DX were were nice and sent me new lasers when I managed to burn mine (due to the wrong specs). At first they wanted me to send them back but after explaining to them that the shipping costs would be more than ordering 10 new lasers they just sent me new ones without fuss.
Bottomline:
Very good price, you can't beat it! Good for DIY projects, not superb quality but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.
