Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maegeheorte If you seek a bright flashlight, here it is.
This flashlight is so bright you will think there is an airplane landing in your living room. Use it to look under the couch and you will find things you thought you would never see again. I found a button from a cardigan I lost in 1982 when my brother and I had a wrestling match in my living room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KSTRAT Great Flashlight
Bought this thing about a week ago for my emergency kit. Tested it inside the house and it seemed OK. Last night we lost power and I turned this flashlight on and boom! Tons of light. Extremely bright. My neighbor was really impressed. He had a light with the same 600 lumens and it was no where near the brightness of this light. I lke the strobe feature for getting attention and feels really rugged. Will go back this week and get another.
Didn't give it 5 stars for Quality because only time will tell, but so far, so good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jbreitmun Durable, heavy-duty, bright flashlight
This ArmorMax 3C LED flashlight is much more than I had expected! I own a couple other LED flashlights that are pretty much stored in a junk drawer because the amount of light they produce is pitiful. This flashlight, however, is extremely bright and well built. The light can go from spot to flood with the turn of the light head. I shined this light down the road to a friends house a couple of blocks away from my house and it had no problem lighting up their yard. The included rubber housing pieces help it withstand damage from a fall to the ground. I intentionally dropped mine from head height and it continued to shine with no damage done to the light at all! Because this operates on 3-C size batteries (included) it does come with the weight of those batteries used to power this light. I do not mind the weight as it feels more sturdy in my grip. Another solution to the weight, if one did not want it so heavy, would be to use rechargeable C size batteries as they weigh far less. It does come with three light settings: High, Low, and Strobe; and can be toggled through the variations with the click of the rear power button. I could see the strobe come in handy if I found myself broken down on the side of the road to alert oncoming nighttime motorist. I ended up putting this in my truck glove compartment for that reason, as well as, just wanting a bright and dependable light source within arms reach. If I had any complaints about this light it would not pertain to the flashlight itself but rather the blister packaging. As anyone can attest they are a pain to open. Tucked deep inside the blister package was the little folded operating instructions and warranty information. I had almost tossed the packaging before even noticing this included information.

Great price, durable, dependable and a very bright light. Lighter in weight than the D-cell version and is not quite as bright, but what a great flashlight it is. This light has everything I want an need in a flashlight. Totally satisfied. Goodbye million candle power rechargeable nightmares.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HowieZ The Defiant ArmorMAX 3C is bang for your buck
This is a great flashlight for the money. I've purchased several LED models of several brands from many sites, and this has been the nicest from a quality/performance/price perspective. I only dislike 2 things, the rubber caps, and the focus or beam adjustment. The lens end cap fits a bit odd, and maybe after was stretched on, it was misshapen and it will come back around, very minor quibble. The focus or beam adjustment does not seem to work as well as I'm used to with my old light. That may be reflector style or brand functionality, and not a deal breaker. Other than those minor points, this light throws out a TON of beam. On the low setting it's nice usable light, on strobe, I don't see much application. On high, I can light up an object over 100yds away easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cutworm Very Solid
Very well made light. It has 3 settings, bright, brighter and a flashing feature. Very clean white light that is much brighter than the old incandescent lights. Solid all metal construction and built like a tank. It also comes with rubber ends that would cushion the fall if dropped. We camp a lot in the summer and this light will be going along for certain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CMMToolMan Quality flash light with fairly good beam
This flashlight is well-crafted and very sturdy. It includes removable rubber ends for added shock protection when dropped. The handle is a good diameter and fits well in the hand. The beam adjustment is smooth, but fairly hard to turn.
The beam is very bright, but not as clean as I would like. Instead of a uniform light, it casts the "eye" that many flashlights have in the center of their beams. Another high quality flashlight I have casts a bright beam without this "eye" in the center, making the light more effective. This flashlight does cast a bright beam in any event.
