If you are like me and prefer "end of lifetime" reviews rather than initial responses, well, here is mine: I have had the light for 2.5 years, and used it lightly - basically for short night time stints in the backyard, alley, or garden shed.
After about six months the strap became so stretched, inflexible and looose that the light no longer staid on my head - bought a replacement 3rd party strap (which quickly developed similar issues). Although I could live with the light being loose for my application, I wouldn't like that if I were to use it for sports or mission critical uses such as camping, hiking or emergency roadside repairs.
Shortly thereafter, the light started to become intermittent, as if there was a short somewhere: Most of the time, I think that the short was in the switch, as I in the beginning was able to make it work repeatedly operating the switch. Sometimes taking the batteries out and adjusting the contacts helped, too. Eventually, the light became harder and harder to turn on, and I gave up on it today.
I will be buying a new headlamp, but it will be from another manufacturer or brand.
