7W JTech vs 6W OptLaser

I have a 1000mm X-Carve that I am wanting to add a laser to. My primary missions would be engraving plastic, wood and painted aluminum and also cutting acrylic and think wood. I have absolutely no experience with using a laser at all. I have been doing some homework, but I thought it best to put the question to those of you who are already using this equipment. How do they compare not only in power and ability, but also in terms of customer service and tech support? The OPT seems to be a much more well-made unit, but has less power. Tech is in the USA and OPT is in Poland, is that a concern ?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated,
