    light on the left (mounted to my ar15) :http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.8537

    blue light: AA maglight

    third light (new): http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.14027

    light on the right: 3 watt luxeon from batteryjunction.com

    shape of the light is a lot like the surefire c2 centurion. the clip on it feels nice and sturdy. makes a nice ding sound when its flicked.

    recessed tail switch. soft, smooth click. theres a small hole on the side to allow for a lanyard to be attached. it comes with one but i took it off

    it came in the mail yesterday (2 weeks 2 days after i ordered it). i was going to do some beam pictures last night but it was raining. i'll get some comparison pictures tonight. not even going to bother comparing it with the maglight b/c its not a contender. i'll show the 3 watt luxeon and the 2 cree q5.

    just off of playing with it for 5 minutes last night i can tell a difference in the beam between the q5 on the left and this light. not AS impressed with this one as i was with the ar15 light. it doesnt seem quite as bright as the other one. could the circuitry allow for the other q5 to be brighter?

    overall its a great little flashlight. its a lot lighter than i thought it would be. wouldnt mind it about an inch shorter but wouldnt make a bad EDC light at all

    considering the dealextreme stuff, fenix is overpriced
