Pros:
Zoom feature allows for more throw.
Cons:
Fragile - the plastic tabs that hold the light to the headband break very easily, and then it's pretty much screwed. It's also just not that bright, even for a lower-end emitter. The tilt would be useful, except it doesn't stay in place. Angling it down slightly just ends up with the thing falling all the way down instead. This is a big issue if you use the light on a helmet, e.g. for rock climbing or on a hard hat.
Other:
The headband was too tight for me to wear comfortably, even loosened all the way.
Bottomline:
It's what you expect for this price.
