The headlight has two bulbs in it with a switch. The main bulb is 12V and the smaller bulb is 6V. The small bulb is useful when moving slowly, however the rider must switch back to the main bulb when increasing speed or the small bulb will burn out.
The drag of the generator when engaged is very noticeable on my one speed bike, and of course there is no light when stopped.
I am happy with this item for the price, but for extended biking at night, riders would be better off with a more expensive system.
One web page describing this product says that this is a clone of a classic British generator light set. The design of the reflector inside the headlight is pretty good, as it casts a nice, bright beam that carries moderately far and easily lights up road signs, lane markings, reflectors on the road, etc. It is not as bright as the expensive battery-powered lights that the "real" cyclists use, but it is certainly brighter than any 6V/3W light set that I have owned (and the efficacy of these lights does vary quite a bit, depending on how the reflector in the headlight focuses the light).
The amount of drag that the generator creates is small enough that I don't find it objectionable. The only caveat I have found is that the positioning of the generator has to be adjusted carefully, by trial and error, so that the generator's drive wheel gets good traction on the tire sidewall and does not slip. This is especially critical when riding in wet conditions.

I'd read reviews for this product from other vendors, and some people complained about installation being difficult without instructions. I think they might be slightly brain damaged. Everything is quite obvious, including the wiring. It's a simple single wire setup, and there is a "T""H" label on the generator to indicate Tail light, and Headlight. The wire is already attached to the tail light, as is the mount. It's quite clear which mount goes to the headlight, leaving 1 more part, and that's the mount for the generator. If you can't figure out how to attach it to the bike, then you probably shouldn't allowed to ride a bike...
On the positive side, as long as this works, I don't need to buy batteries. On the negative side, it makes climbing up hills even more challenging.
