Monport vs Thunder Laser

Thunder is built better, engraves and cuts faster, is more powerful, and has better support. You also will save valuable time and money not having to upgrade and tinker or align your machine.

No painful alignments means more laser time!

All of our machines will arrive to you perfectly aligned. No painful adjusting required. Be up and running in no time! Poorly made machines often require periodic alignments, costing you precious laser time. If you have to spend an hour or two aligning your machine every couple of weeks, what does that do to your productivity? Machine reliability is crucial if you are running a small business. Our machines only come out of alignment in the event of a head crash.

All high-quality parts means better engraving.

All of our lasers are industrial grade, unlike ones made of plastic or cheaper materials. These cheap, light materials will shake around when engraving, causing poor results.

Additionally, some hobbyist-grade machines aren’t well wired and break down frequently. Consider this, along with additional cost and time of upgrades that are often required.

Thunder has wicked-fast, US-based support.

When you need help, you need it fast. Like lightning fast. We typically respond in 3-5 minutes, often on weekends and holidays. Check out our reviews to see what others have had to say.

We have clear, consistent pricing. What you see is what you pay… always.

Our pricing is clear and upfront and includes everything you need to run a standard job. It also includes shipping. So you never have to worry if you are getting the best deal. Everyone gets the best deal possible. You will never find our sales folks to be pushy, either. We just want to find the right machine to fit your needs.

No lost sleep wondering if you negotiated the best deal.

Don’t take our word for it, join Facebook groups and ask other users.

It’s hard to really know the differences in lasers without seeing them up close in action. We would encourage you to join different Facebook groups and ask the community about their machines. There are several for Thunders (and other brands). Our largest Facebook Group can be found here.

Get the most out of your money.

Lasers come in all types and forms. With price ranges from $500 to $100,000+, it can be hard to choose. Oftentimes, your budget determines how much machine you can purchase. And the more you spend, the better the machine.

At Thunder, we keep our margins thin and our marketing and labor costs down so you can rest assured you are getting the most bang for your buck.
