PROS
Excellent build quality. Smooth satin finish anodising. Nice OP reflector (but will change out anyway). Easy to kit out. Great thick o-rings that add assurance to dust and water protection. Tail switch feels solid, not mushy at all.
CONS
Green tailcap is probably the cheapest looking thing. Pill is a tiny bit fiddly to screw in, but that's probably my fat fingers.
I was really suprised at the level of quality that this host. Aluminium pill is not copper or diamond, but is sure better than brass. Though the threads are not anodised and look a little rough, they feel smooth even without grease/lube. Gonna fit this out with a SMO reflector and a de-domed XP-G2 direct driven for my first crazy thrower.

PROS
Incredible throw, tight hot spot. (~70K lux) Quality machining. AR coating. Anodised threads. Rounded almost-square threads. Excellent heat-sinking. Fits protected batts no problem.
CONS
No HA-III anodising. No turbo. Battery extension bodies don't screw together seamlessly. Very heavy for a single emitter. No fine knurling on primary battery body.
'twas a lot bigger than I expected. Full review here: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/20399

Extreme Quality Build Simple UI Hidden strobes AR lens Dual Switch Good Heatsinking Better thrower than standard P60 light. Ultra-low low, perfect for soft lighting in pitch darkness. Waterproof.
CONS
Pricey Only single cell. USB charging is moot (for me). Large for a single cell light.
This light is really impressive from the get go and the grey is beautiful. A quick glance at the manual and the UI is completely understandable.

Cheapest around. Great build quality. Seperately wrapped reflector. Includes a centering ring. Includes plastic insulating ring. Texture not excessive.
CONS
The pill kinda smells metallic and funny. Slight burrs on threads. May contain tiny brown stains.
