When I got it, I noticed the plastic lens was dirty, and several screws were loose and in stripped holes. Within 15 hours of use, the light toggle button started to fail, then the part that locks the light into different angles failed, leaving the light drooping and in need of a certain blue pill.
The part that locks the light into different angles is a pin that is pushed into grooves by a spring to hold the light in position. The spring is sealed in by a square of plastic that wasn't attached very well and broke off from the force of adjustment, sending the small spring flying out.
It is also very hard to remove batteries without damaging them because of a very tight fit.
Now onto what's good about it:
Headband adjustment, weight, and light adjustment are all satisfactory providing the headlamp is still in one piece.
You may or may not be aware that this is a Chinese knock-off of the LED Lenser 88000. This headlamp can do everything that the LED Lenser can do, and is brighter.
The light is much brighter than regular more expensive headlamps like Petzl which are around 50 lumens. So if you're just buying a light for its brightness, get one with a Cree LED. These are the type of people who buy an $80 60 lumens headlamp and give it a 5 star review saying "I love it it's so bright". This one costs much less and is 300 lumens. (Be aware though that lumen ratings do not directly correspond to brightness and may be measured in completely different ways. This headlamp seems about 4x brighter than my 50 lumens Petzl Tikka Plus 2, and about the same as another Chinese headlamp rated at 600 lumens).
However, using this as a life-critical system is a death sentence. You don't want this to be your only source of light. It will fall apart and/or explode.
Instead get something less bright with higher quality like something from LED Lenser, Petzl, Princeton Tec, or Black Diamond.
I replaced this with a Petzl E97 PM Tikka Plus 2 Headlamp, Mystic Gray. It seems about 25% the brightness and doesn't throw the light nearly as far, but the build quality is much better and batteries will last a lot longer in it.
Mine came with parts already broken. Half of plastic clip that hold battery holder in place was broken so the battery pack dangle out loose from band. The light is supposed to be adjustable but mine was locked in place and will not budge no matter what. I looked inside the lens (light is off) and noticed it was full of dust.
After installing the battery I tried out the headlight and for the price the light it gives out is very good. However, the on-off button feels cheaply built. I expect repeated use will eventually cause the switch to fail. There is no weatherproofing so if your light get wet from rain I doubt it will last long.
In closing, this headlight is for people who just want powerful headlight at the cheapest possible price. It almost remind me of a car where only the engine is built properly but everything else is built almost as an afterthought.
Update: I purchased another one of these a week later. It is cosmetically very different from the first and both are different from the pictures. Apparently these (which have no brand markings) are sub-contracted to a number of different manufacturers with only functionality specifications. Some are silver, some are black, some have a slim battery cases and some have very bulky cases, etc. But so far they all seem to work the same and be a very good value for the price. Just don't expect yours to look exactly like the pictures.
The bad? AAA batteries and 18650 batteries are not even close to the same size, and guess which size fits this light? So if you order this and a pack of 18650 lithium rechargeables thinking you'll get a great combo (which I did) you get an annoying surprise.
If you're DIY able you can get 18650 battery boxes on eBay when you buy your batteries, but that's not the point. I have new batteries and a new light, and I can't use either one till I rig up something to make them work together. So for that it loses 2 stars.
Bottom line, just buy AAA rechargeables and you'll be fine. It is worth what it costs, but the description needs fixed.
