    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    + Powerfull beam, does look ~200-230 lumens!

    + Nice machining w/ slightly striked square knurling (looks cool)!

    + Flawless anodizing, w/ nice color

    + Throws quite far (>200m)

    + GID O-rings and tail cap are a plus and look cool.

    + It's waterproof! (tested on shallow water)

    Cons:

    - Didn't work with 1.2v NiMH or 1.5v Alcalines

    - Button was a bit receded, making it a bit hard to press with the thumb.

    - Tint was slightly purplish, but not annoyingly so.

    OtherThoughts:

    * Luckly I also got 2x14500 battery, and it works fine with those.Even if yours works with AA's, it's still better w/ 14500! ;)

    *The receded button problem was easily solved by putting a 1.5 mm high slice of pencil eraser between the switch and the cap

    *I removed the annoying plastic on the clip and put a 3cm bit of 3mm heat-shrink tubing thru the clip wire and shrunk it in place (where it touches the body). It looks even better now!

    Bottomline:

    Relatively inexpensive light for everyday use, easy to carry around and very bright!

    A friend of mine saw it and bought one for himself just a few minutes after! :)
