    Pros:

    Very bright from all angles, with great battery life considering the brightness and number of lights. Strung over a picnic table at a campsite, this is more than decoration - it's a true light source, providing a nice even light around the area. Think of it as a lantern that's much easier on the eyes, and more fun.

    Cons:

    Battery compartment is not impressive; a thin metal piece from inside flew out a couple of times while swapping batteries. It took some care to insert batteries and close it while keeping everything together.

    OtherThoughts:

    Were noticeably dimmer after two or three long nights of use, but this was not disappointing given the light output and use of only 3 AA's.

    Bottomline:

    On a camping trip and at Burning Man, I used this in a variety of ways, and was impressed with the brightness, as well as the toughness of the wiring and bulbs; it stood up to being strung through trees, pack staps, etc. I even stepped on it by accident once or twice, with no ill effect. It just could use a tougher battery pack.
