After months of research we decided to buy a Nova 51 from Thunderlaser. The quality, capabilities, and US based support were key factors in our decision. We listened to the community and the people who have Thunderlasers and the overwhelming support for the platform changed our path and we're so glad we did. We didn't find a single negative review and those who have a Thunderlaser had nothing but high recommendations for the laser.
