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

Pros:
Strong UV beam. Covers good area. Shows all sorts of things that you can't see in normal light (or might not want to see). No problems with clicky. Host seems sturdy. Can use other drop-ins, such as sku.17593.
Cons:
Does not have a clip as stated in description. Lanyard is cheap and broke off easily. Threads were kinda rough and did not come lubed, neither did the o-rings. The threads dropped a lot of shavings initially, which got all over the o-rings. Lens arrived cracked, but DX did send me a replacement.
Other:
DX needs to sell UV protective goggles. The light starts to hurt my eyes pretty quickly because it is so intense.
Bottomline:
Great UV light. The host could have been better prepared. Lanyard is useless.
