Questionable claims on the Laser Prona website:

“You won’t be disappointed with the number 1 global selling laser cutter. false claim?”

“The most complete family of laser engravers on the market and the most powerful software driver available.”

“Thickest Cutting in a Single Pass and the Industry’s Longest Warranty.

“Although we have 87 engineers ( 6 with Doctorates and 12 with Bachelors Degrees) having 79 patents pending and 60 actual patents owned ensures we will maintain the claim of ‘The Best Laser Engraver EVER Made!’ and a large overhead as a result of the huge staff, we are nearly a $250 million dollar company…”

“Our pricing structure is so low that LaserProNA.com is not even allowed to post it online.”

Looking at the feedback online it is quiet surprising that the “number 1 selling laser in the world”  does not show a lot of support from owners.  Few online seem to know who they are or provide feedback on the machine.  You read the occasional pitch from regional salesmen within online forums, but precious little from actual owners.   Nonetheless they are one of the only laser retailers that sells both a line of metal tube and glass tube machines.

  • […] Laser engraving offers a very cool effect when it comes to engraving or processing material. The materials are actually burned into which ensures that the engraving isn’t easily removed over time. This is important since you have to have an indelible impression or etching for long term usability. IF not it’s simply a waste of time, effort and money. After working with the settings and power with each type of material I’ve found a laser engraver ensures the finish is clean, appealing, and very professional looking – most importantly sellable. This is why these machines are very lucrative to utilize today. Laser engraver prices are more attractive but could be moving up soon. Why? There are going to be more and more interested in the near future.  […]
