Strengths:    bright, inexpensive, lightweight

Weaknesses:    sucks down batteries, chinsy

Bottom Line:   
Both front and rear are really bright. the front really consumes batteries though. pretty cheaply made too, doubt it would survive a good impact. but they work for commuting.
Paired with rechargables this is a good little set.

Strengths:    Bright, reliable, light weight, easy to remove (but secure when mounted), durable (survived a crash, rain rides)

Weaknesses:    Seems battery hungry

Bottom Line:   
The perfect commuter light. This is the HL-MC200 headlight with the TL-LD500 taillight. The MC200 delivers a bright, well focused beam...plenty of light to let them to see you coming and enough for you to see what's 6 feet ahead. Light weight, clips on and off easily, and a reliable switch and contacts. Think rechargeables. It seems to go through lotsa alkalines, but that's not surprising given the output. The LD500 is very bright and functions as a reflector...but then active beats passive when you're on the road before sun up. Both are very good products and together make a great basic safety package.
