    Hi Dave
    No experience of this seller, but have bought a 532nm 150 mW and a 650nm 100mW from from David Lanling.

    The green is superb, nice quality with cooling etc cost 140.
    The red needed a box and heat sink etc but still good value for 35!
    On test they both appear to be quite stable with decent beams....not bad for the money paid.

    Hi Kev, Thanks for info. I bought an almost identical red from seller "borphi".
    Advertised as 130mw red - I have no way of checking this, but was certainly very bright until its untimely demise!
    I'm new to al this M'lud, I had no idea!
    Ignorance is no defence!!!!
    You are hereby charged this day with careless and reckless use of a reflective surface resulting in the severe impaiment of an innocent young laser diode!! The poor thing can at best now emit the merest red glow!

    On a brighter note, I received this module - Ebay 3302106660689 - green advertised as 210 mw. No markings as to manufacture, but nicely built and very bright! ( I bought another green from this seller 100mw, which has worked faultlessly) I am enjoying a surfeit of green photons this evening
    All the best, David
