Now I might have a little more confidence in buying. Do you mind posting the link to where you ordered?

@BFamous – Andy posted this link (AliExpress – China s Amazon) in the previous thread.

Be aware that Aliexpress is like Amazon on steroids. They will have 30 suppliers for the same item. I’ve noticed that some have better communication than others i.e. trying to do customer support via Google translate. Better pricing but a 2-3 week delivery time as it comes from China. (they all come from China regardless of who the merchant is). However, if you have issues (my first one was lost in the mail) there is no 1-800 Amazon number to call as you deal with the supplier, not Ali so for a little piece of mind you can spend an extra $30 on Amazon and have it in a day or 2. This one looks identical without the NEJE name on it. I’d feel comfortable getting it as the guts are pretty much the same and it’s somewhere in the US cuz Amazon has sameday delivery to me here in Seattle.

Just to reiterate, I have had no issues with any of the machines that I got, just a question of how long I wanted to wait and how much I was willing to pay. I’d get the 1500mW model if getting the closed bottom one and the 2000mW open bottom one. (the closed bottom one doesn’t seem to come higher than 1500mW) The reason I’d stick with the 2000mW open ended one for making pens is that I read somewhere that the ones that are 3000mW don’t do as good a job with fine details because of the strength of the laser.

This is who I ordered from on Ali. Great communication and USPS tracking # right away.

Thanks for your posts about these lasers. I am going to order an open bottom one today…2000me.

Could you post some info on the camera you used.

I got this camera. Forgot I paid $9.99 through Amazon instead of $6.99 on Ali cuz it was next day delivery.

All that being said, it’s not much of a leap to get something like this. I just don’t have the room for it.
