Please tell me what they are like, because I'm very new to Green Lasers.
If they are not great, please tell me somewhere where I can get good green lasers for a good price where they can send to South Africa.

Thank You Very Very Much.

those are all newwish ( or counterfeit newwish ). they aren't the worst, or the best. they are a cheap mediocre laser, and any one of them is probably just as powerful as the other.. especially on ebay.

you can wander on over to http://www.dealextreme.com/products.dx/category.134 and buy one probably for the same or better ( shipping is high on that ebay )

Yeah, definitely advertising. I went to the website and they don't even sell Green Lasers.

I still can't go onto the dealextreme.com website, all i get is

Gateway Timeout

The following error occurred:
Code:
 A gateway timeout occurred. The server is unreachable. Retry the request. [/b]



 

Can anyone help me, I really want to check these guys out.
Thanks

comidt: I am on the DealExtreme site right now, and it's up and running - perhaps your browser and/or firewall has a timeout that you are experiencing locally? Look for a setting pertaining to that in your options and bump it up -- the site took a few more seconds than an average site to load for me, but it was my first time, and I'm using a less-than-y2k speed connection. Also, it appears they are located in China, so conceivably their could have been a burp getting to your location. You could try an IP hopper just to see if going through a more circuituous path would help.

It was very nice to see this reference to a more reasonably priced, and reliable place than the evil bay for a laser. This is my first post here, and I have to say - dangerous find, this forum is (for me)... I am so happy to see all this wonderful info. I am currently seeking a green laser, and while I don't expect precisely what's advertised for under 1,000$, am considering one of the ~"200" mw output ones. Looks like a lot of YMMV on these. Regardless, between just a couple inquiries, I've already toasted the better part of 3 hours here doing a lot of quick learning!

somewhat off-topic, but: I am also hoping to figure out all the abbreviations that will lead me to an upgrade of my E2e, but that's to be sussed out in thread searches (or if anyone wishes to PM me a quick primer, I would be much obliged.)
