589nm is such a beautiful wavelength one of my favorites. I got the Spartan 589nm 50mW . It changes brightness a bit during use but that's normal and nothing to worry about.
The beam is easily visible in a dark room if you look along it. Almost as visible as 532nm, but much more easy on the eyes: a thin ray of amber light, not yellow like a banana, more of an orange yellow, like a traffic light, which I much prefer to my green 532nm laser.
The body has a nice heft to it, feels very solid in the hand.
Do I need that laser? No.
But it is a sheer delight to use.
Would I buy it again? Oh, yes! :)

I've had my Spartan 30mW for a couple days now, and I absolutely love it, the amber yellow color is simply stunning. Everybody that sees this thing immediately falls in love with its color and ultra thin round beam. The build quality is incredible as well, very good machining and anodize. Dragon Lasers for the win!
If your in the market for a 589nm handheld then you know what to expect. The one I received functions better when chilled carefully. It peaks at 85mw at times. Its temperamental. It mode hops. Its beautiful. Recommended for those bored with RGB.

Yep these 589,s are awesome get them while you can, great company, I bought the 50mw H module and custom build an amazing housing for it, this golden wavelength is absolutely stunning and definitely worth the price, if you want some ideas on a custom housing you can take a look at my build on LPF.

I ordered a 5mW Aurora 589nm laser pointer, and I love it! Once I placed my order, I received a printable receipt, and the laser arrived in about 12 days to Ohio in the US. Overall, it's a good quality laser! It has a nice durable construction, and a unique beam. As I move it, the beam seems to split up into multiple dots. (This might mean that it's unstable, but I love the effect, nonetheless.) It arrived with no broken parts, and as stated before, I loved the shipping speed. I wouldn't have expected it from China. It shipped by plane, and when it arrived, I was the exact opposite of disappointed. I'm not sure if it's over spec, but as long as it doesn't burn down the house, I'm fine with it. In fact, it does seem to shoot out just 5 miliwatts of power, which I was happy with, because I didn't want a super powerful laser pointer. My only two problems with it, is that first of all, once the back of the laser is screwed off, (to put in the batteries), it's a little bit hard to screw back on. And my second problem, is that it doesn't come with batteries. So don't buy it without buying a few CR2 batteries along with it. But these are just minor issues. Overall, I was very impressed with my laser. I would buy from Dragon Lasers again.
