Strengths:    Bright, Small, lightweight, waterproof, price, easy mounting

Weaknesses:    The button is a little small, but it's not like you are pushing it that often.

Bottom Line:   
I do a lot of my riding at night, and some streets around my house are not very well lit. After reading a few reviews on this light, I decided to go ahead and pick it up. I have to say, what a great tail light. It is so bright. My friend has a cateye and my other buddy has a bell, and the Blackburn is at least 3 to 4 times bright then those lights. I really like the amber side lights too. I would highly recommend picking this up for city/night riding, it really is a great product.

Strengths:    extremely bright, long battery life

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I got this light years ago to replace a cateye one that had fallen off on a ride before. This is the brightest tailight i have ever seen, its battery life is incredible and it has several different modes of flash and a steady mode. It is also not big and bulky and wont make you look like a Fred, perfect for the minimalist roadie looking for an effective taillight or even the Fred looking for the end all be all of taillights. You will not be disappointed!
