    Default Planing a NEW projector but still do not know where I should buy some things

    Hello,
    I started collecting things, to build myself a new RGB projector. I just checked the power with croma, to generate a real white beam :

    445nm => 100mW
    473nm => 140mW
    532nm => 200mW
    658nm => 400mW
    642nm => 200mW

    I allready have a 473nm blue Laser and a 658nm Laser from dr. Lava.
    So I still need a 642nm Laserdiode and a 445nm Laserdiode

    I think I will buy a raytrack scanner unit, because I read that this is a very good one.

    But now my Questions ^^:

    I really do not know where I should buy the following things, because there are so much shops and all say their products are the best!

    -What green Laser I should buy (Lasever, CNI,....)
    -good dicros and dicro holders?
    -642nm diodes?
    -mirros to combine the 642nm with the 658nm lasers?
    -a cube to combine the 473nm with 445nm?
    -a good lense for the 642nm and 445nm laser diodes?
    -beam switches?

    What do you think about the Idea to use a combination of a 473nm and a 445nm laser?

    Do you have any ideas or can you recomend me any shops?

    Thanks for your help!!
    Best regards
    Mathias

    Sorry for my bad English

    Raytrack is a very good choice. Also because its has scanfail on board. I had a raytrack and i was very happy with those.

    Look at this site:

    You can find everything you need. He also sells the DT40 wide. Those are great because of the wider scanangle so it perfect for smaller size places because you still have a big image

    Thanks for your answer edison!

    Nice to hear, that the raytrack scanners are good, but they are very expensive.
    In my third projector (which will be built far in future) i will use the DT40 wide. Because It should be designed for small parties with a maximum power of 500mW.
    I already know this shop, do you use the dicros in your projector? Are they worth its price?

    The dichro,s are good. Rob gives excellent service and if there is a problem with what so ever he always gives 200% of effort to solve it. I know cheap is nowadays the main criteria but what about service

    Hi edison,
    Okay I will put this site on my "good quality list". I know, if I look for cheap prices, than I have to change my hobby! . But there are a lot of things offerd, which are very expensive and totaly rubbish! (e.p. Laserworld projectors^^).

    How can the raytrack scanners deal with graphics? Better then DT 40 pro?

    Nice Sunday
    Mathias
