Strength:

Very bright light for its weight, with a nice focused beam. Easy to install and remove, as well as charge. Sidelights are a nice feature for commuters.

Weakness:

Longer run times would be nice. Battery on mine appears to be wearing out after about 2.5 years of regular use (commuting 3-4 days/week year round).

This is nearly the ideal commuter bike light, IMHO. It is light weight, easy to mount and remove, simple to operate and charge, and relatively inexpensive. I "upgraded" my Urban 500 with a Taz 1000 for the extra lumens, but went back to using the Urban because it seemed nearly as bright with half the weight. Unfortunately, the battery on mine seems to wearing out and fixing it would cost about half the price of a new one. I have gotten plenty of use out of it, however, commuting 3-4 days/week year round on a 31-mile route with the light running about 2:20 hours/day.

This is a pretty good review on youtube about the 550 and a couple other lights from light and motion. http://youtu.be/EAKA1vBOF_8
