    Google "FSL laser problems" that will make your mind up for you.

    It is a new hobby machine for 2 months. Mostly for diy fun. If you need the machine for daily working, larger machines suggested.

    DON"T buy a Full Spectrum, just read the lousy reviews , Buy direct from gweiki but go for a bigger machine, for the 3650 you pay for the FLS you can get 3 times the machine from Gweiki. Bigge,r better,faster. Look at the LG500(DESK) laser engraver from gweiki.Or look at the Shenhui lasers .

    Hmmm. I have a Full Spectrum and love it. I have used it heavily over the last year and a half and have only replaced the tube (which is normal maintenance).

    BTW, NO affiliation with FSL.

    I have the LG 500 desk unit and it does what I need. I bought mine from Automation Technologies in Chicago after I went there and saw it run. $3199 for it and they were very nice to deal with. I did have some questions after I picked it up and they answered them even on a Saturday.

    Yep theres about 5 happy FSL owners out there and read the 100's of bad reviews. The crappy customer service hey its not just me all you have to do is goggle Full Spectrum Laser reviews. I'm glad you got a good one and the 5 people that got good ones are real quick to say I love it. I love mine when it works its does a fine job, easy to use, but have had it just over one year very lightly used been broken down 4 times now and hasn't worked 8 months out of the 14 I've owned it. so if you want to take the chance hey good luck to you.
    I know the other 4 happy campers are gonna come on and say they love theirs too. Like I said just read the reviews.

    I forgot to mention the people at FSL only care about your money, Their the nicest people going till you pay them then forget it they treat you like crap if you have a real problem, like your machine don't work. Oh yea they will answer a few emails but don't exspect much else.

    I have owned two FSE Hobby lasers. They both didn't work. My cat now sleeps in one on his favourite blankie in the garage. Crap product and crap service from the owner. Google Full Spectrum problems and you will get the gist of what I went through. I now have a lovely 100w Chineese cutter that has worked out of the box without ANY problems for 18 months. Give Full Spectrum a miss...

    The STORM appears to be a very low powered model 30-35w tube with software thats unproven. Hurricane has it for sale..I think? If you're gonna spend that kind of money, get something over 50W that can cut...100W dialed in can cut
    through a lot of cool stuff. Add oxygen and you're engraving / cutting metal.

    Reviewing Fulll Spectrum's 20x12 hobby, it may be a better option with its software. But, again I'd never pay a company who asks for $250 for 5 hrs of Premium/Personal service. So then everything else is low grade and impersonal? No way, not when other laser companies give you their best for as long as you own it.

    I've talked to Automation Technologies and based on the conversation they're a Chinese broker setting up shop in Illinois. They were very responsive and cheap. But when they offered to ship a 20x12 direct from China to my door step...that was all I needed to hear.

    Funny you should say un-proven software with the Storm 500 ? Just got one from John at Automation and are very happy with the support. The software is LaserCut 3.3 which no one has heard of, but it works.
