Strength:

Great beam, both brightness and distance; Easy to mount; doesn't move; good price

Weakness:

Battery run times are lower than advertised; light rattles in the mount; long recharge times(~5hours)

I got this light from Chainlove for $59 and use it for commuting. It was easy to mount and easy to use. It is nice and bright in all modes and easy to switch between the three.

My morning commute is around 20min and can just get three rides out of it in the 500 lumen setting without charging which is about 20-30 less than advertised. It could be affected by the temps, though, as I ride with it in -5 to -20 Celsius commutes so that may be part of the reason.
The mount was easy to attach to my handlebars and has not budged but when the light is attached to the mount, there is a little play resulting in some rattling. Not much but enough to be noticeable.

The charge time is about 5hours from dead and even if it is not, it still takes around 3-4hours.

Overall, at the $59 price, it is a great light. I wouldn't feel the same if I paid full retail but for my purposes, it is great.
