    Cool Purchasing a Thunder Laser vs G. Weike Laser or other

    I'm trying to decide between purchasing a Thunder Laser vs a G. Weike or other laser in terms of price. I'm looking at the 54 x 36 version or similar. The Thunder Laser price includes everything shipped to my doorstep from what I understand. Is there a 25% tariff on Chinese lasers at this point as there is on other goods?

    I'm wondering if a G. Weike Laser (or other $4-5000 laser) + import taxes/tariffs and shipping puts me pretty close to the cost of a Thunder Laser. The one nice thing about TL is the support forums and they are claimed to be built to a higher standard. Are there others (besides Boss which is over my budget) that are worth looking at? Like everyone, I suppose, trying to find the best bang for the buck.

    Thanks!

    I tried also, what I get for 6090 range . Thunderlaser $5650.00, G-weike $2600.00, Aeon MiRA 9 $4190,00 etc.. All of them with no exception are very good on pushing offers , as soon as you start asking questions about what hardware is used the communications suddenly stops.
    Most of them are more or less the same build , supposedly Thunderlaser a bit better quality, Aeon a bit different on the approach trying to resemble western hardware . Buying from china is a big gamble, all of them want to sell, but to obtain a bit of info on the hardware used is a very long process.The general idea is buy what I got and do not put to many questions.
    The worst of the bunch is Aeon, idiotic marketing what even a 5 years old can see through, and definitely do not put questions on what are you buying.Personally for whatever the reason I liked Mira9, but is like they try to pull you in their ecosystem, parts are not easy to buy like on the other 90% of the Chinese lasers.
    You can have a look at Transon apparently they are quite decent sellers, but do not expect any support if something happen, they already tried to sell me an old model at an inflated price with "upgrades" , and on off the shelf spare parts from what I saw they inflated the price at almost double.
    I mean is no secret that 90% of the so called "factories" work to a based Chinese government approved skeleton machine blueprint for export , and all buy the parts from the same place. In reality they are just assemblers, but is their choice what parts they buy cheap/expensive.
    The problem with Chinese lasers is that you can buy "China" or "China, China" this is why most of them avoid telling you what hardware is used, some are good at marketing and they sell the skin of the bear from the forest, some took a "western" approach and as long is within of 10% of the initial purchase price they try to oversell you all sorts of junk.
    I will say that overall is a bad experience towards miserable, on response time, tech info, communications, etc. Good luck to you with your search.
