    Default Laserwave 500mw 520nm mini review.

    Laserwave 500mw 520nm mini review.
    The first difference is the new smaller module driver dimensions, and the module head is little bit higher dimensions than older Oem pro 638 / 450nm module.
    So, the green light power is impressive, but the beam point around is dirty, but the filters and dichroic mirrors scanner after reduced the dirty light,
    but not clean the figure.
    Module worked about one hour and the module head and driver little bit warm and light power is stable.
    Overall good, but in the future recommended to LW repair eliminating the dirt beam.

    That's a Beam?? Looks like a laser-pancake.. Maybe we can start a 'cylinder-pair petition'.. I know swami will sign it..

    ..Thx for the review..

    i gave laserwave instructions on how to fix it using spatial filtering, but they were more interested in small and cheap and less interested in good.
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    How can fix spatial filtering? What did you do own your module beam?
    Now I will not touch it in my module.

    ..Maybe they're going after the 'Laser Jackson Pollock' market??

    Just really cannot grasp the 'quick n' dirty' mentality, Not for an OEM, anyway... 'Quick n' dirty' should be reserved ONLY for those precious laserist moments, ie: backstage at the concert, with the Band about to pop out of the Green room, 5 min before curtains... and you've got everything 'on fire' in your Pj-world.. THAT'S when 'quick n dirty' is Ok.. Not so much for an OEM with (clearly) the time / money to 'do it right'.. <shakes head>

    This is a joke. This is not complicated to fix.
    Poor business ethic.

    a spacial filter would be hard to implement in that space. Maybe just the optics got bumped around in shipment. I dont think it should be that far off. Send them an email wtih a picture. They have always been very responsive when i correspond with them.
