    dont know about the laser but this guy is a very reputable seller. Ive had good dealings with him a few years ago and he often has 'interesting' stuff for sale. Looks pretty cool - but 670 is half as visible as 660 and a third of the visibilty of 650 so maybe not as useful as it would seem.

    If you need to ask the question 'whats so good about a laser' - you won't understand the answer.

    I really liked the way "half a watt", "red" and "$250" sounded...
    So I bought it...

    I have watched 2 or 3 of these and have wondered about them. 670 is low, but for the color pallete, it would be nice to add to what you currently have.

    indeed it is, 635 all the way

    I have wanted to grab one for a while. I'd not sure about the optics needed for the 670 itself, but I bet a PBS would work to combign it with a maxyzmodule. I gues that would be close to having 300mW of 665nm...

    I got a couple of 130mw, 670nm diodes from Lasershowparts, and they're REAL bright... I also got a CNI 635nm, 100 mw from them, and the beam quality (not their fault) is serious lousy (I shoulda known). For $250, I thought I'd give the ebay diode a try...

    I will be interested to see the beam quality of this diode... You are obligated to post a lot of pictures once you have it going... so hurry up.

    if you matched the beam diameters you could mix 635 and 670 for a nice colour red then again you could just mix 2 650s for the same effect.. and same power
