Pros:
Very bright. Noticeably brighter than XRE Q5 in similar setup/drive current. I have been running mine for awhile now without any of the problems other members have posted.
Cons:
It does get warm. I would be worried to run this for extended periods of time (>30min). The heat transfer from the dropin to the body probably isn't that great since it is just metal on metal (no thermal paste), so with the body getting really hot, I know the LED must be scorching.
Other:
I have not run this light for more than 15 minutes at a time because I am worried at how hot it gets.
Bottomline:
Get this light. For $14 it is a great "wow" light. Very impressive output.
