Strengths:    I can't ride as fast as this light lets me on the trails, it's like riding in daylight. With my previous 330 lumen light I felt somewhat limited even tho it was a great light, it had a focused pattern, the 900 does not, it will light up the side of a mountain, and I LOVE the easy access button for high/low, you can change settings easily even with winter gloves on. I've only done 2 hour rides with it so I can't rate any longer burn times than tha.

Weaknesses:    I got the older battery style, so its a bit heavy.

Bottom Line:   
"The Sun"..seriously if you want a stupidly bright light this is it, and with the price I snagged this thing at it was an amazing value.

Strengths:    Super, super, super bright. Two levels. Battery life indicator. Compatible with old NiMH batteries.

Weaknesses:    NiMH battery is a bit heavy. Run times good, but would always love more.

Bottom Line:   
NR strikes again with HID -- so awesome that this new version is compatible with all my older gear. The low setting is still brighter than my old lamp, and having two settings and a battery life indicator is awesome. LED may be the way of the future, but this puppy pisses off everyone on the Lakefront Path if they're going the other direction. Can't wait to take it off-road!

Strengths:    Extremely bright, good fixtures, NR customer service has gotten much better, still brighter than LED! Fast charges

Weaknesses:    Expensive replacement bulbs (but has a 2 year warranty), somewhat heavy, but I don't mind. ~2.5hrs on high

Bottom Line:   
Overall a great light - the brightest I've ever had. The battery is NiMH. I would prefer Li-ion but that would probably cost more. I like having the switch on the lamp itself as opposed to the battery (trinewt). This thing is extremely bright - I've had 2 other HIDs in the past and this is easily the brightest. NR customer service has gotten much better - I'm glad I gave them another chance.
