I’ve seen other lasers that look or are specified similarly but cost WAY more (or less). Why is that?

In truth, there are very few people in the world that make laser housings, and if companies like X-Laser were to do it ourselves, we not only would not be able to do it as precisely, we might have to charge as much as DOUBLE for each projector. Therefore, just like the mini-tower cases that desktop PC’s came in back in the day, many lasers look quite similar. Don’t be fooled though… a similar looking product does not make it the same even a little bit.

We will be the first to tell you that there are better lasers than ours out there in the market. Strange for us to say? Perhaps, but it is true. We are not trying to make the world’s best laser… we are trying to make the highest quality lasers humanly possible while maintaining reasonable prices. Sure, you can buy a piece of junk for a few hundred bucks (which is probably not legal in the US anyway) or you can spend three or four times the price of an X-Laser for a top shelf projector. In both cases, you are having to make a serious compromise. X-Laser has gotten so popular in part because we don’t want you to have to choose between performance and a second mortgage.

Simply put, you will not find a better laser at a lower price. If you do, let us know and we will work to earn your business, but we are pretty confident that you won’t. We have a warehouse full of samples from other manufacturers and every day we work to create a new standard for them to rise to.
