    posted by TennesseeTony on 12/31/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    40 days and nights, 44 actually

    posted by TennesseeTony on 04/04/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Good build quality. Has a switch on the end cap, with good positive feel to it. Has a purple reflective filter on it, perhaps an IR filter, but don't expect it to filter it all if it is. After 40 minutes in the refrigerator, it still lights up green! Al...
    Cons:
    Lower than expected output. My 3.6v rechargables will arrive soon, so maybe the output will improve with the higher voltage. ...

    Bright, but not bright enough

    posted by TennesseeTony on 03/28/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The light output is blue-white, and very very very wide angle, I'd say almost 180 degrees light output. This strip is divided up into 8.33 sections, yes, 8 and one third. Each section has nine leds, the 1/3 section has, you guessed it, three. EACH of thes...
    Cons:
    Not sealed, no moisture resistance. Cool blue. Not the worst I've seen, but not the most natural of colors indoors. 2 amps? ...

    BATTERY NOT INCLUDED

    posted by TennesseeTony on 03/15/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Box says it's rated 3.0 to 4.0 volts. Rechargeable users rejoice! Brightness is equivalent to other 30mw units. Easily used for starpointing at night, as the beam is clearly visible. VERY lightweight, compared to the many other greenies I have. Switch...
    Cons:
    Battery compartment threads are well lubed, but the lens end is horrible, feels like sand in both units I have. A bit of greas...

    It's alright, and usually in stock

    posted by TennesseeTony on 03/15/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Solid build. Minimal warm up time (1/2 second). As bright as my other 30mw models. Has a switch, works well. Wrist Strap is handy. Beam is EASILY seen at night, good for starpointing.
    Cons:
    I ordered five. One had a different type of switch, and occasionally flickers as it doesn't quite match up right. One had t...

    For the money, buy one of the other DX units

    posted by TennesseeTony on 03/14/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Fairly solid build, should last. Little if any warm-up time (1.4 second) at room temperature. It's bright, can easily be used for starpointing at night.
    Cons:
    DOES NOT USE CR123 BATTERIES!!!!!!! I had to go to Walmart and shell out $10 for a pair of CR2 batteries, which are shorter th...

    Fantastic!

    posted by TennesseeTony on 03/11/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Incredible construction quality for the price. Very solid, heavy. Reasonable price, more than bright enough to use for star pointing. The beam is clearly visible at night, while it shoots through the air. Has a very sturdy belt clip. The switch has a...
    Cons:
    No infrared filter, according to other posters. Heavier than expected, really solid build, but it's not comfortable in a shirt...

    Not as ugly and plain as the picture

    posted by TennesseeTony on 03/01/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a very well made (for the money) laser. I cannot verify the output, but I do know it is every bit as bright as my first real green laser, rated at 35mW. There is no rattling, very solid feeling. The design/style of this laser looks bland in the p...
    Cons:
    The included battery tested at 2.78volts (new Energizers test at 3.22v). There is NO SWITCH! There is a rubber endcap, but it...

    Not even close to BLUE light-Very purple, near UV

    posted by TennesseeTony on 02/27/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Cheap, VERY small. Made of metal. Key ring is tiny, but looks strong.
    Cons:
    NOT a blue LED. Very purple, with some UV. I was expecting a blue LED as pictured. I know BLUE LED's are VERY bright, usuall...

    A fun toy

    posted by TennesseeTony on 02/25/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Runs off of 9v adapter, but the board starts to get warm. Much brighter than typical red laser pointer, but not incredibly so. Fun to play with, I'll find some use for it I'm sure.
    Cons:
    CANNOT be used for star-pointing at night. The beam IS visible, if you are looking nearly straight down the back of the laser ...
