Generally speaking the more laser power you have the faster you can engrave or the thicker you can cut.
 
Keep in mind that not all materials require a lot of power – if you are only engraving materials like anodised aluminium or cast acrylic you do not need much power however if you plan on predominantly using your laser to cut then you’ll need to consider a suitable power depending on your specific application.
