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

    Pros:

    - Bright
    - Great warm color of the light
    - Best price anywhere
    - Very nice textured reflector, hence good beam pattern
    - Exceptional build-quality

    Cons:

    - the inherant problems of incandesent problems like short runtime and heat, but you can't blame this particular bulb.

    OtherThoughts:

    I am impressed by how bright this is.

    Bottomline:

    I made a home-project flashlight with this head assembly with 4, 3 volt 123 cells. Basically just taped the whole thing together. It's very bright... I compared it to my 3xAA LED Maglite, 2xAA Maglite with the $30 TLE-5EX LED bulb upgrade and the $45 Dexlight X-1 running on 1.5v alkaline cell (14500 is on its way) - the results made me angry. This home-made flashlight worth less than $4 was much, much, much brighter than all of them!! I do understand the drawback is significantly shorter runtime, but I love how bright and cheap this bulb is.
