Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- High lumen output. When hiking I use mostly Low mode. High mode is good for higher distance. - long battery runtime (at least on my piece). I dont have to charge batteries after every night trip. - good price/usefulness ratio - low battery indication (When battery is low, power button LED turns red and light automaticaly switches to Low mode)
Cons:
- Mine come with improperly sized reflector and front glass. Reflector is about 3-4mm smaller than diameter of headlamp body and glass was also smaller so there was a gap between glass and flashlight body. - For upper reason light was not waterproof (fixed it by ordering properly sized glass) - Cool white light - not really a con but i have noticed that blue tinted light has lower penetration ability than warmer tints. It is mostly noticeable in foggy weather when you compare two identical XML lights - one with neutral or warm light and second with cool white. On the other side cool white bin emmiters have slightly higher lumen output. - short power cable
Other:
Dealextreme offers me an partial refund for improper sized components so Im very grateful and happy with this product.
Bottomline:
If this light just have properly sized parts and neutral white bin XM-L, I would absolutely call it "the best buy for the money".
