Strength:

Bright and simple (two modes unstead of five)
Seat stay mount in addition to seat post mount.
On off button easy to activate from on bike.

Weakness:

Expensive for what it really is made up of. Batteries not easy to remove, no way to more permanetly fix it to your bike.

Good light, would like to see a clamp that would give a quick release option and an option more permanent option to mounting. Light fell off or was stolen. Extra slack in mounting bracket would hit leg sometimes while riding. Could have cut it down more but then option to mount on larger seat post would have been gone.
Also own TL-120 I prefer this light to that one.

Strength:

Cheap, bright as anything.

Weakness:

If I had to find fault with it, I'd prefer a mounting system that doesn't leave plastic things on my bikes, and AA batteries which last longer for the money.

Best I have used.

Strength:

Compact, long battery life, Bright, water resitant (not Proof), Cheap

Weakness:

Mounting bracket

Very good light for the price paid. It will throw a nice halo when viewed directly from behind. Ability to clip on clothing is a nice plus. The only thing that I do not like is the cheasy seat post clamp. I'd prefer a quick detach version.

Strength:

Bright, even in non-blinking mode. (Since using blinking lights is illegal in Sweden...) Nice with AAA batteries, since they are easy to find in any store.

Weakness:

Weak mounting. The plastic band that straps around the seat post is to thin and easily breaks.

Easily the best diod tail light I ever used.
