Pros:
For just under $34 this is a real bargain. This is a very, very solidly built Flashlight which produces an impressive amount of very white light. All threads are nicely cut, with (mostly double) lubricated O-rings in every joint. Good beamer with with moderate spill. I especially like the Titanium Grey finish which makes it stand out from the (predominantly black) crowd.
Cons:
Thermally this light is not very well laid out, which may cause it to overheat. However, you do not have to be a technical expert to alleviate this problem with a bit of kitchen foil (Aluminium). The forum provides information on how to do this.
Other:
Build quality is really worth five stars if it weren't for the heatsinking issue. But as said, this can be overcome.
It's quite heavy. I would have liked it if it had come with a clip for carrying the light on my belt when not in use.
Bottomline:
At this price, this light is pretty amazing. It looks and feels much more expensive than it is. If you want it to last for a long time, make sure to fix the heatsinking issue.
