    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very nice machining job and laser etch. Threads were great, well lubed o-rings, no debris left like some you might get. Standard lanyard, nice quality. Solid switch and a nice beam pattern. Good spot/spill.
    Cons:
    Like another review, mine came with the driver set to Med/Low/High/Strobe/SOS (specifically not what I wanted). There is a ba...

    Good materials used in build. Even quality finish. BRIGHT! 5 modes. Small size, nice for pockets. Rechargeable cr123's fit just fine. Light pattern is nice and clean, good throw.
    Cons:
    The head can not be easily removed, soldered in place so no up grades. tail clicker is very light to switch modes. No tail stan...

    Great light; run times estimated

    posted by Simon on 12/31/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    I like the med-low-high-strobe-SOS order on the levels. As noted in another review, it has a short-term memory feature which puts it in the next mode if turned back on within a few minutes, otherwise it reverts to med. Very bright in high. Efficient LED e...
    Cons:
    Longer than the standard single CR123 flashlight: Fenix P1D-CE: 70 mm Ultrafire R1 5-Mode Cree (SKU 8534): 82 mm Super-Bright C...

    great design, poor QA

    posted by faultymonk on 12/19/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Super bright Cree Q4 LED in an inexpensive, convenient, light-weight, and small light. Double o-ring in the tailcap and an o-ring under the glass lens keep it waterproof. 5-modes makes it ideal to use as a bicyle light (with a Twofish flashlight holder). ...
    Cons:
    Quality assurance is poor. When I first received the light, the o-ring wasn't placed properly under the lens. The tailcap swit...

    Awesome CREE Q4 CR123 Light!

    posted by Joshatdot on 10/18/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Fits perfectly in my hand holding the light in a Fist. Bottom clicky is perfect for one handed thumb operation. About 95% bright as my P1D CE Q5. My Tenergy 3.0v 900mAh Protected RCR123's fit perfectly.
    Cons:
    Bottom reverse clicky can be sensitive, 1/4 ~ 1/2 click will change it to next mode. Price is a a bit more than other CR123's ...

    Good for your pocket, a handy performer.

    posted by fortuate2001 on 10/12/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Great look and feel, and a very compact flashlight. I found the threads smooth and lubed, and overall finish good. This is a bright light, as I had hoped. The bezel is almost sharp, but no so sharp that it it dangerous in your pocket. Fit i...
    Cons:
    The clicky is very sensitive so it cycles through modes on me by accident. I also find the lack of memory of the last stat...

    Great value

    posted by Greymage on 10/12/2007 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Very bright - same brightness as Fenix P1DCE on primaries, brighter on protected 123. Nice hotspot and color. Body machined well. Retaining rings in tailcap and in front can be unscrewed to replace switch or lens. Orange-peel reflector gives even ligh...
    Cons:
    Scalloped front somewhat sharp, doesn't seem pocket friendly. Does not tailstand, rubber switch protrudes.
