    Default Full Spectrum

    Just found some info about so called "american" engraver Full Spectrum.
    For me this is a robbery.
    25W Chinese laser sold as 40W!
    (They say "40W Peak (30-35W Average)". But 600mm laser is not even 35W. It is 25W at least.
    And there is no such phenomenon as PEAK Power in CW lasers. This is not RF laser.
    CW laser works CONTINUOUS. See picture.
    So they lie about laser power.

    So called Air Compressor ($150) is standard aquarium magnetic pump (20-25 Euro in Europe. Europe is much more expensive than US)

    Focus Lens 1.5" ($250). Cost 15 USD in China if you buy 1pc. 10 USD for large quantity. 75 USD in Erope.

    RetinaEngrave USB Direct Print Drivers (100% USA Software). That means it is Chinese Driver with some american software.

    It looks someone should go to court.

    While I won't comment on FSL directly, I would like to say if you have a Full Spectrum Laser and are looking for a dedicated forum for those users, please visit http://fslusers.freeforums.org/index.php

    I have used a 4th gen Full Spectrum Laser for the last year and a half and have probably put 1.5-2k hours on it. So far, I have only had to replace the tube, which is regular maintenance. Their software is great as well.

    They may be rebranded China lasers, but I don't care as long as they serve me well, which this one has.

    Just my .02.

    That is good that you got a working one.
    The two I recieved from them probably worked for 20 hours properly, and for another 50ish hours requiring up to six passes to cut 3mm MDF, before failing completely.
    I DID enjoy using the Retina Engrave program however. It is the only redeming factor about FSE.

    for the last year and a half and have probably put 1.5-2k hours on it
    My HX1290 (HPC type) had just over 6,000 hours on the original tube when it was replaced (and was still working at the time), replacing a tube at 1,500 hours isn't a good thing

    And there is no such phenomenon as PEAK Power in CW lasers.
    *peak* is used as the descriptor for maximum applied output when the tube first strikes Cine, or in other words quite a lot higher current than a tube will run at.That said calling a cheap Chinese 600mm tube a 40 watt is just plain wrong. Selling it as a 40 watt is moot, the initial pulse may be 40 watts but that's way above what the machine will run at.

    Agreeing with Cine twice in a week......I better go lay down

    cheers

    I love Chinese lasers, they make me a lot of money each year but then again I buy mine from a UK distributor who is always there when there is any kind of problem.

    As an example:

    Last week a friend of mine who has a couple of lasers from HPC (hpclaser.co.uk) had a board go down, the chap needs his machines running so what did Chris at HPC do?

    Went to my friends business at 11pm...YES ELEVEN at NIGHT to repair his machine under warranty so he would not lose production time. THAT is the difference between those that care about their customers and those that don't!!

    Strangely enough, over in the US the guy with the best reputation among dealers is Ray Scott @ Rabbit and Rabbit sell the SAME machines as HPC do here.

    If all Laser suppliers learned from people like Chris @ HPC and Ray @ Rabbit the industry would be far better off because of it!

    cheers

    Dave

    Like I've said a hundred times there are 5 or 6 full spectrum lasers among the so called thousands they say they sold that actually work, but just read the reviews of hundreds of people who won't give you a plug nickle for a Full Spectrum Laser. Even if they made a good laser the people there just suck, they treat you like yesterdays thrown out garbage.

    I have emailed them a few times, and they have always been courteous and helpful.

    Has anyone else here actually worked with them, or is it a he said she said rumor mill? Im not saying they haven't had their issues, but I would like real stories from the people who have had problems with them.
