Strengths:    This is a very bright light. The cost is reasonable.

Weaknesses:    The durability is awful and the mounting bracket is poor.

Bottom Line:   
I loved how bright this light was. The mounting bracket is of poor quality. I had a hard time keeping the light from jiggling all over the place, and the tension screw would usually come loose and the light would sag downward toward the ground.

After breaking three of them, I gave up on this model. Two broke away on the road when the plastic on the clip to the mounting bracket broke, and one had an LED quit working. My shop replaced all 3 under warranty (this all took place within 10 months). After the last break, I did not have the heart to return another to them.

Strengths:    Bright. Jewel-like appearance.

Weaknesses:    Lame mounting bracket. Sloppy tolerances, flimsy.

Bottom Line:   
About as cool looking as a tail light can be. It's clear, but flashes red. This thing is VERY bright. I've had several different brands and this has been the brightest in this price range. Unfortunately, the mount was always rattly and allowed enough movement to finally snap while crossing train tracks. If not for the mount, this would deserve six stars. In hindsight, I should have just taped it up to eliminate movement, but my bike is too nice to be slapping tape on things.
