If you read my post in "Comparing the Latest Lasers Available" you can see my comments.

The B&L is almost one half generation behind the latest technology, and the Nidek is one generation below. The spot size on the Nidek is 1mm. I was considering getting Nidek until I did a little bit of research and found that the company had been sued and had not come out with any new advances in quite a while. They probably have less money for R&D as a result.

For the same price you can get the Wavelight Eye-Q 400mhz or the Wavelight Concerto 500mhz.
