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

    Amazing but dangerous!

    posted by mick0 on 05/30/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Does everything it is supposed to. Lights red matches, engraves dark stuff such as my mobile phone, pops balloons from 2 metres away. Build quality is very good.
    Cons:
    Beam is not as visible as a 30 mw green, can just see it in a dim room during the day. Don't use it to annoy the cat!

    not bad as far as chinese lasers go

    posted by mick0 on 04/04/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Output ratings on Chinese made lasers are pure bulls**t. I will compare this unit to a L*l*ght GLP*** rated at 5 mw green and pot modded. Tight collimated beam. Almost good as G*P.Small dot at 100s of meters. Nearly as bright as G*P Great build quality.
    Cons:
    Gets hot, and beam splits into 2 dimmer beams after about 5 mins use. Ok again once it cools down.

    Small gap between head and body. 15 seconds on a lathe fixed this.

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

    Pros:
    Very nice bright smooth beam, great for indoor use, thanks to the bigger than usual OP reflector. good size, not too small to get lost in your pocket. Heatsinks ok for a single rcr123 torch, gets warm, not hot.
    Cons:
    VERY Sharp edges on the crown, u could use this for a HOLESAW. Mode selection hit and miss. What the **** is with the strange m...
