Pros: Well made. Feels and looks like "quality". Small but sturdy.
Other Thoughts: They come in a small padded package. It's a small thing, but prevents them from banging into each other in transit which might damage the satin finish.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 2000LM CREE XM-L T6 LED Rechargeable 18650 Headlight with Battery + Charger Set
Pros: Shipped fast, from Canada, arrived in four days. Everything worked correctly. Seems pretty well made. BRIGHT! Focusable from a bright spot to a large circle. Illumination from the spot to the large circle remains nicely uniform. It weighs a bit, but since the batteries sort of balance out the lamp, you don't really notice it. It's MUCH better in this respect than those with the batteries contained in the light module.
There's an odd little red light on the battery pack that illuminates when the headlamp is on. Sort of like a little stoplight for the back of your head. It's not particularly bright, so I don't know what they were thinking.
Used it for nearly three hours straight at full brightness without draining the batteries. Don't know yet how long it runs on a single charge.
Bought this via Newegg Flash. Like is so much I'm going to buy three more now at the higher price. Makes a great gift for anyone who does close work like sewing or model building.
Cons: All of these are minor....
One thing you might not like about it is that the headband may be a little small even when fully extended. It's easy to adjust, but when you're at the end and it's still a little tight, you're out of luck. Of course, that could be because I have an unusually fat head.
Recharging takes quite a while. I'd estimate that it takes three hours of charging for one hour of full brightness use. On the other hand, if you have one, you can use a standalone charger that works faster.
There are no instructions, however it's pretty straightforward and most people should be able to figure it out.
Packing could be a bit better. It comes in a plastic envelope, taped into a ball. Mine was okay, but it doesn't have much in the way of protection from typical package handling.
Other Thoughts: The flash mode. Wow. No kidding. If you're one of those people who are sensitive to flashing lights, like some epileptics are, you should be careful with this. On the other hand, if you're using this for outdoor night time activities and need to discourage an attacker or something, it might just do the trick.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These are the fastest SD cards I've ever seen, and that includes premium SanDisk cards. They're especially good at small block size read and write. Where most cards are hard pressed to turn in speeds of 500KB/sec @ 512 Byte block sizes, these write at 14.9MB/sec and read at 22.8MB/sec (Atto) Wow. I'm impressed. They reach full speed at 16KB and larger block sizes -- that's about 35-36MB/sec write and 82MB/sec read. AKA screaming fast. Also a plus, they come formatted in FAT32 without ANY junk on them. A root directory. That's it. PNY includes a plastic clamshell case.
Good work, PNY.
Cons: About the only thing anyone could gripe about is how hard the packaging is to open. You have to cut carefully with sharp scissors, which, I realize, some of you out there may not be allowed to have.
Other Thoughts: I bought only three of them. Regret not buying more when they were cheap.READ FULL REVIEW
