PROS
Solid construction, diode and board firmly glued. Soldering quality good.
CONS
Not adjustable, all 3 I got had glue in trimmer as well. Short for some applications.
OK product, current draw at 4.2V cell was about 150mA or so. Diode diode is driven at about 75mA current. (somewhat low driver efficiency) If you want to adjust output you can do it by changing current sensing resistors R4/R5/R6. This seems to be a boost topology so you must not use too much voltage or it fails to limit current. OK for single cell lithium and smaller voltages. Works ok with 2 full nimh cells as well.

PROS
Good size for EDC, not too heavy to keep with you without noticing it much. Sharp, slightly hollow ground blade. The handle is smooth wood that feels very good.
CONS
Clip is one side only and one position only. The blade might not take heavy abuse, so if your looking a knife for very rough handling you may consider something else. The liner lock is quite typical but could be a bit heavier for my taste. No hole for lanyard (the blade cuts them if you insert lanyard through the decorative holes).
This is usual Enlan quality. Great for EDC. This makes me think of L05 on a smaller scale. If this had a lanyard hole I'd get one for EDC too without a second thought. Now this ends up in my collection. I've taken out 1 star because the blade on this one was not perfectly centered and I had to tighten a bit the screws on the clip.

PROS
Very small (might be a con too!) Very high in quality, pretty as well Stud for opening the blade Very sharp (fails to be used for shaving though) Lanyard hole Handle is real wood (not imitation) No custom screws to prevent you from adjusting/disassembling it
CONS
No protection against locking it on your fingers which would be impossible to do with a liner lock. A petty package would make this a very nice gift.
This is a small knife. See dimension, I mean almost fingerlike small when closed! This is very compact for EDC and small enough to be used publicly without anyone getting worried about it. Very light too (mine weights 42 grams). Everything on this has the impression of quality. A couple small knicks due to wood grains seems like fault on this one. (You'll have to look closely to notice them though). A very pritty knife, great item for a gift as well. I did order more of these already. (One is kept on the collection and the other for gifts and EDC)

PROS
Somewhat textured handle Stud for opening Lanyard hole Beltclip that is ok tensionwise Normal screws (hex/torx, not some custom screws)
CONS
Sharp but not very sharp The part of the handle near the blade is not textured The thumbrest is a bit slippy. Very rough to open before lubing. Cannot flip open after lubing either
A medium sized knife with some serrations. Rather light (I measured 72g for the knife) because of the full plastic handle. Handle flexes a bit if you grab it heavily or test for blade play sideways. Lock ok and seems reliable. The size is usefull for small tasks unlike the small one which is too small for practically everything (except opening your mail) If you need quality knife to rely on, this is not the one. This is not the knife to pick up and go out in the middle of nowhere. Feels somewhat cheap from the first moment you touch it.

PROS
Very compact, good battery life on low/blink. Good visibility on wide angle of view. Seems pretty solid and water resistant.
CONS
First one lasted only about 2 months of use couple times a week. Failure was on wet season, does not seem soaked though.
USB chargable (can be good or bad), nice mounting options (clip and seat post mount). Did not last very long before there was a burn mark near one component and there was no more light. If failure rate was not this high, I'd really like this light. If it needs replacing every two months it is not for me. Based on sample size of one I cannot say if this is typical or not.
