Very nice spot in the center with excellent spill that's superior to the Cree P4-WB 3-Mode LED Headlamp. Definitely Q5 brightness, nice switch, reasonably comfortable. Nice and light, barely notice it's there compared to a AA lamp.
Battery compartment opens a bit too easy and I've already used a short piece of duct tape to keep it from opening accidently when I really don't want it to. Not something you'll want to wear for hours on end or during intense exercise without a baseball cap under it (only a thin piece of non-absorbent foam under lamp).
This is a superior product to the Cree P4-WB 3-Mode LED Headlamp (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.15577) in all respects but battery closure. That said, a small piece of PVC electrical tape or duct tape will reliably hold it closed.
Very little difference between low/medium/high light output.
Solid light comparable to much more expensive Black Diamond and Petzl lights at a fraction of the price. While the construction of the top of the line brand name models might be a little cleaner, this light's output for size is second to none at any price. A piece of duct tape is all that separates this from a $40+ Petzl or Black Diamond.
