Strengths:    Easy to set up. Consistently does what its supposed to do.

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, but if your looking at getting a dropper post weight is a secondary priority.

Bottom Line:   
I spent a lot of time looking at and demoing various posts out there. For me it came down to the Lev, Fox Doss, Thompson or Gravity Dropper. Each one is a great product but not having internal routing and being a bit of stickler for cable movement it came down to the GD and Lev. I decided on the Lev based on being able to try it extensively before buying it. I was all set to get the regular Lev when I came across the DX version. While a little heavier and slightly less adjustable than the regular Lev it functioned identically and I liked the all black look. I have owned this for several months now and have not been disappointed at all. The action is smooth as silk and does not move laterally at all (I weigh 198 lbs and ride aggressively). Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase so far.

Strengths:    Value
Ease of install
Micro adjust seat clamp
Adjustable air pressure for post rebound
Zero cable movement


Weaknesses:    From new the post had a slight fore and aft play, not enough to notice on rides but enough to cost five chilis.


Bottom Line:   
I have had the post for about a month and love the zero cable movement when dropping the post. The lever is simple to install and use easy to fit with your thumb without having to move your hand to much off the grip. Movement of the post up and down is very smooth and having infinite range of where to drop the post is great. After I have had more time on the post I will post a better review.
