A few months back, we reviewed a few basic lasers, but today we’re reviewing the Sonar Advanced Blu-Ray laser from Wicked Lasers. We’ve seen several superb projects using blu-ray lasers before. The unique purple/blue glow is a nice change from the typical green and red lasers we see. Check out our full review of the laser below:

Laser Intensity & Casing:
Compared to a few powerful green lasers we’ve seen in the past, this laser beam is more difficult to see with the naked eye or even through a camera. But, this is simply because our eyes pick up green light far better than the subtle violet glow of this blu-ray laser. The body of the laser is a superb build quality and has some nice engravings with “Blu-Ray” and “Wicked Lasers” as shown above. It also came with quality laser goggles and case. One small annoyance is that you have to hold down the button to shoot the beam instead of clicking it once for on/off.
This beast outputs about 125mW of blu-ray power. When I first turned this on, I was in a room with glow in the dark stars on the ceiling. After shining the laser on one of the stars, it literally exploded with light. Even 5 minutes later, the star still glowed intensely (basically, the laser is like a black-light in laser form). Turning it on in an average size room with white walls will illuminate the entire room and make white clothing/surfaces glow brightly. Unfortunately, the beam itself was extremely difficult to capture with a camera.
If you’re going to buy a high quality laser, Wicked Lasers is one of the best names in the industry. Their build quality is superb compared to most laser companies and they have one of the best reputations throughout the web. This was our first hands on experience with one of their products and we definitely look forward to reviewing more of them in the future.
