Pros:
Very bright. Switch works perfectly. Has memory. I've only tries it so far with 2 cells. Tested it for 20 minutes on high setting. Warm to the touch up to 15 minutes, 15-20 minutes slightly uncomfortable to the touch in the area near the emitters. This is my 4th Cree light, the two 1 X 14500's I have run hotter than this. The fit and finish is very good. I showed it to a machinist friend and he ordered one the next day. He was impressed with the build.
Cons:
So far few or none. The strobe would be better if the pulse was a little faster, but it is not bad.
Other:
I saw the bad reviews on the other TR-1200 but went out a a limb and got this and I'm happy I did. I already had the 18650 batteries so $35 wasn't a big leap. I had problems with my other lights switches, but this one has been perfect out of the box. Can't wait to try it with 3 cells.
Bottomline:
Best $35 flashlight out there. Same size as my 2 - C cell mag but there is no comparison in output. This is a small light cannon.
