Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Very bright
Memory mode works
Low mode is still EXTREMELY useful
NO artifacts. Maybe I just got lucky with that, though.
Great throw
Cons:
Hot spot sure is tight
SOS is kinda useless, but its not a hassle to pass by
Too big to fit my non-DX flashlights(Not sure about real SF yet.)
Kinda runs through my RCR-123A pretty fast, but that is why they are rechargeable.
(Haven't gotten the two hours other reviews have claimed.)
Other:
I like strobe. Its fun.
You can fix the tight hotspot by unscrewing the diode some from the reflector(to almost complete spill)
You have to hit SOS while the light is on to change to the next mode. Freaked me out the first time.
Bottomline:
Get it. Even if you don't like flashlights or have a body for it.
