    Exclamation OPTlaser PD3000A-rgb instead PD3000-rgb

    2 years ago i've bought a PD3000-rgb. Everything's fine until i opened it and see that's the bad module inside. Buying PD3000-rgb low divergence and they send me the PD3000A-rgb.
    They send me the wrong item and today i contacted them for a answer.

    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.

    I didn't open it before I wanted to sell it. It's a nice little laser, good for graphic show in my lounge.
    But how to tell the difference between 1mrad and 1.3mrad if you don't realy need it.

    That RGB module is sold by the same company I bought a new 5 watt version from off of ebay cheap, the seller is techhood. Mine looks almost identical inside except mine has more beam expander and collimation cylinder pairs inside in front of the diodes, you only have one.

    Yep, at 360 some dollars a year ago, it was a steal. I bought the 10 watt version for six hunded some some dollars a few months later. I should put up a video showing the insides of that one too. I will at some point.

    10 watt version. Re: First photo. All of the three diodes in the upper left side are green, they have brass showing. There is a single blue diode to the right of them and on the very right most side are four red 638 nm diodes.

    Thought I'd better add this photo to allow understanding the beam path better, seeing where the beam exit is.
