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

Pros:
Great light for the money. Outer housing is machined to very high tolerances. Feels like a high quality light worth much more then its list price on DX.
Cons:
Stopped functioning in less then 10 minutes of use. upon further examination ( complete tear down) there were some bad solder joints on the LED housing connecting it to the body of the light. Once re soldered no problems.
Other:
Some quality control would make this a five star item.
Bottomline:
Great light for the money but could need some TLC to maintain functionality.
