Pros:
* It just works. There's none of the odd quirks of other inexpensive flashlights; e.g. high-pitched buzzing, battery contact problems, overheating, etc. * High quality case with precise machining. Threads are smooth and tight even without oil or other lubrication. * Easy to grip and turn on/off with one hand. * Clean, even beam with well-defined edges and center bright spot. * Glass lens. * Forward click; soft press for momentary on. * Want a pseudo-lantern? Just screw off the head.
Cons:
* This little Romisen has been around for a while, so the LED technology is a bit old, relatively speaking. Emitted light might not be as bright as with newer flashlights. * There's only one mode. This may be seen as a plus by some, a shortcoming by others.
Other:
* It feels like a much more expensive flashlight.
Bottomline:
* While this might not be the right light for illuminating a distant trail, it's more than adequate for everyday use. It's built to provide decades of reliable service.
